Here is the 265/65/20 cooper discoverer at3 worn to about 7/32 off her old truck. Just trying to wear them out before i order snow tires.
From the side they look fine. But the front they look suuuper skinny. But for winter tires im ok with that.

Wheels are +19 offset same as stock.
Thanks. That is a very workable solution 😊

Mine are mounted on a 9.5" wide so may look stretched. you might want to stick with 8-9 if you want a different look.

What air pressure are you running?

According to this website: https://tiresize.com/pressure-calculator/
they want you running 50 psi to keep the same load rating?

Not sure if the Tpms gets upset with a 12 psi gain or if only reacts to a loss?

I'm with @RTG....I picked my TRX up in February and we had some snow in Upstate NY. They did great IMHO. My driveway is 600ft long on a bitch of a hill, and it bombed right up.it with no problem. I have 15k on it now, so will likely replace them with the same in a month or so. I have about 50% tread left. I took it through some pretty deep snow covered fields when I first got it to go sledding. The truck is really capable. Way better than my tuned Duramax.....granted alot lighter!
Aren't they treated for like 50k or 60k miles? Why the need to replace them so early?

I never get the "advertised " tread life. Maybe for a regular sub 400 hp vehicle thats not full time 4 wheel drive you will get higher milage. Torque and horsepower eat them up. I never get more than a usable 20k out of my tuned Duramax. I'm hoping a usable 25-30k out these Wranglers.

Anyone ever hear of Arctic Claw or their WXI tires? I am a bit hesitant to run a "C list" brand, but they are the only true winter tire I've found in 35s. Open to any other suggestions as well!
Those look capable. They are 33” tires which will look small but it’s performance you are after.

Tires don’t last on heavy diesels as long as they do on other trucks. I’m surprised you are 50% worn at 15k miles. But the truck does have a lot of juice.

I have always had fantastic luck on ice with Blizzacks on my SC’d tundra. They looked skinny at 275/65/18 but they were a hoot to drive around with. I could pass every single vehicle on the road up the pass with confidence. But take them off as soon as the snow melts because these powerful truck will vaporize a dedicated winter tire. I also prefer winter rubber over studs. But the difference is small.

Ya, they are getting down there, but I'm not sure if they will wear slower now. I know some brands start to wear like iron after a certain point, but I don't know if I want to keep these on for too much longer once the snow starts to fly! I'll be over 20k before December hits, so will have to decide then!

Just shy of 16K. Rotated at 10K while doing an oil change. All air pressures have been pretty steady and uniform at 38-42, depending on the temperature.

After reading some comments about the stock tires I decided to have the stock tires studded and siped. I’ll get better tires for the summer, I’ll report back if it sux or it they are decent.

All upper body lol! I'm not sure if flaps exaggerate the size difference?
Seems quicker and rides pretty nice.
