Do you drive these 35x10.5x15 boggers on paved roads much? If so, what is your review?

Not a lot, only because at over $340 plus tax each, I try to keep them off the pavement, plus this 40 is a gas hog. The little bit I do drive them on the pavement they're fine. Not real loud but a hum and they handle fine. My 40 is more a street friendly trail rig. I purchased them from a friend, minimal miles mounted and balanced on stk steeles for $600. In the past I ran P78 and Q78 buckshots which are similar to what 71FFJ40 is recommending in the swamper. I would consider going that route mainly because of the cost of them. The buckshots performed great off road too. My street 40 is set up similar to my trail 40 w/a 4" lift and I'll be running a wider tire & aftermarket 8" or 10" wide aluminium wheels. I like that look better for my street 40.

Check out US wheel. They make a few different style steel wheels and do custom offset and offer various widths for a fair price. Some have modified the US wheel center caps to hold the fj40 caps. If you order them through summit racing you get free shipping.

I ran 38.5 ‘s. Tsl SX on pavement for years , I still have them on a set of rims. I ran them soft though,
like 12 PSI. 6 psi on the trials
Just to get them to run even across the the full tread with. They where stiff old bias ply. But I loved them. My favourite tire. I run them as spares and two on my trailer. Lol. 38.5 swampers on my trailer nuts. They must be almost 20 years old. Great old tires

After searching, I'm not willing to sacrifice my comfy radials for bias plys on a vehicle that sees mostly pavement, so for now I will get my beadlocks balanced (which I've never done) and run'm!
This boiled down to me spending $1,500 - $2,000 to make the stock steelies work with a 35"-37" radials just for cosmetic reasons. Its not making sense right now.
