I run the Baja Claw Radial 33x12.50 on my Cherokee. LOVE EM!!! They are an excellent off road tire. I've got about 10,000 miles on mine and they are half gone already. BUT...... My jeep has a spooled rear end and a locker up front. So it's EXTREMELY hard on tires as my daily driver. But overall, I highly recommend them! But bacause they don't have tread siping like a more "street friendly" tire does, they will wear faster than other off road tires.


IMHO.......If you're only running a 31" tire, don't waste your money on an expensive off road tire. Stick to a all terrain. Most vehicles with a 31" tire cannont be considered a "real" off roader. And therefore don't justify the need of a high dollar tire. They wear faster, are louder, and don't ride as nice. Trust me, I speak from experience. I love the look of a nice mudder, but, when you face the facts, and add up the street time compared to the off road time, the street time will always win. You'd be much better off with a good AT tire like a BFG AT, or a Pro Comp AT or something along that lines.

Just my .02......................

I ran mt baja clawz 33 12.50 16 and got about 48 thou out of them but that includes racing and pulling and bogging and I aint easy on the tires , and the weight of the diesel is killer on any tire.Just make sure you rotate every 5000 km and you will get good milage

If you're putin them on a 2wd, I'd go with more like a Buckshot or BFG MT, Cooper STT, or something along that lines. The directional Baja I don't think will work well for you cause you won't be able to rotate them. At least with a regular Mud Terrain, you'll be able to swap sides and that will help them wear better than not rotating at all.

i found they were pretty horrible in the winter on my 94 but they last pretty well and are pretty good in the mud. there are deffinatley better tires out there for the snow. i like the cooper discoverer stt's thought i have never used them personally, but they will be what i buy next

I love mine in the snow! But like I said, My jeep has a spooled rear and a locked front, so being a "true" 4wd, it'll pretty much go anywhere I need it to go. But I could see where the tread pattern wouldn't be very good in the winter on a normal truck.

I had baja claws on my 98 Dakota, and they sucked! They wore down so fast I didnt even get to rotate them three times before they wouldnt pass inspection. Winter time seemed fine, but the summer heat tore those things up BAD!!!!!

I had them on my 04 Z71 (sold). They were pretty bad. They look great but wear, ride, and sound horrible. I only used them on road though. If you're off road almost half the time you'd probably have much better results with them.

Cody..

..my step dad has them on his wrangler and I think they are a very rough riding tire and they are wearing out way too fast!

A tire that no one has said anything about and I ran them on 00 quad Dak is the 33x12.5ox15 Dunlop Mud Rovers, the dang tires were awesome! I could go anywhere with those in 2wheel drive! Just get'em spinning and the mud would sling all over the place. It was fun when people were behind you! The only thing is I don't know how long they will last, because I sold the Dak about 6 months after I got them, but they still looked awesome at that time. And they were cheap. I wish I could run them on my diesel.

Yup! NOBODY but ME drives that thing in the winter. It's a handfull in just a dusting of snow. The rear wheels always spinning together want to push it all over the road in 2wd. Put it in 4wd and it would go ANYWHERE! Damn snow was up to the grill, and if you just keep the tires spinning real slow, they would just claw their way through. Even with the snow dragging on the under carriage. Spin 'em fast and you'd sink it and be S.O.L.!!!

Hey Cody, I would strongly reccomend the Cooper STT, I have the ST on my Bronco and had them on my F-150 (sold) They did great off road. The STT is even more agressive than the ST. The last couple of sets of Coopers I have had gobs of tread left at 50,000 mi. I will eventually put them on this truck too.
