I am interested in putting 35" tires and new wheels on my KRX.
While I have read that others have already done so, I am unable to find anybody that has.
Looking to see what tire/wheel options have been used and possibly why they were chosen.
The 31's are nice but basically I am looking for 35 x 10 x 15 to help go over rocks and terrain easier here in the Ozarks.

Thank you for your assistance.

I going to go with 32's on mine. Huge selection of tires to choose from, ease of finding a replacement if one is needed, and a huge weight savings compared to the 35's. I just don't see the advantage of them unless you are an extreme conditions rider. Even then it's a marginal advantage. My 13" of wheel travel, 12" of ground clearance and 29" tires took me everywhere I ever wanted to go with my General.
Anyhow, that's just my take on oversize tires. Get out and ride. (y)

Well...we just quit making 15" wheels not long ago. They just didn't sell. We stopped before we released this tire. Man, I wish we still had some...cause...you know...that would kinda make sense. Lol! BUT...I can get you a little discount on the tires if you're in!

Why cant Co's make a tire that isnt for Moab n desert? Carnivore for example? It seems its either a rock or mud tire nowadays. I want a lightweight Carnivore type dot tire in a 34" for example? I dont want "slick rock" or "Bogger" tires. I dont want a 50+lb tire.

Don't disagree with ya Angus..
Unit is already Heavy, same as others, less weight in some areas better performance..etc.

That 35" Warrior XT is just about as light as it comes for a 35". The SlikRok name edition came from our buddies in the SlikRok group that requested that specific size and design for years, but its really an all around killer tire. That's what we're all running here in our crazy hill climbs here in southern Indiana.

Braven Bloodaxe comes in a 35 that is lightweight and works in all conditions. Tough tire too.
I am running 35 Maxxis Roxxzillas and have no problems with them.

I also run the OEM beadlocks. They beadlock rings are thick and the bolts torque to 41ft.lbs. They are a fantastic wheel. Don't be so quick to dump them.

Your right Braven Boodaxe is a fantastic tire tough too... wish I had thought of them. At 46lbs for the 32" and 54lbs for the 35"s Made in USA true to size... Light weight tires simply don't hold up or take a punishment like these will..

I agree. There is only so light weight you can go before you eat into durability.

Bloodaxes will be my next set once these Roxxzillas wear out. They are what the Carnivores should have been. Very similar tread pattern too.

I’m running 35” Rockzillas on mine. I live in NW Arkansas and ride all over the ozarks. They surprised me how well they do around here. Even in the mud we have. Really like them so far. Got them from Joe Wooster in Jane missouri.
