Really like those 701's, just wish they weren't so heavy. 30lbs? Did you happen to weigh yours before mounting tires?

I'm also conflicted with getting STT's or the bigger all terrains. :facepalm:

I did weigh them (because I'm anal lol). Balancing them on my high-end bodyfat bathroom scale, I got 30.7 lbs. Some online retailers and Method have quoted me anywhere between 30.0 and 30.4lbs. So, I guess, 30.4 is accurate. One reason I went with KO2s in 315/70 was because they were the lightest 35 inch tire I could find at under 65 lbs. I couldn't find a sub 30 lb wheel I liked, with an offset acceptable to me (0 or greater), and that was hub-centric.

Ok thanks! Guess its only the 4 doors that have it off the floor
Just wanted to double check and make sure the factory didnt mess up
Yup...2 doors get it on the floor. 4 doors get it on the side and they get the 'hole' in the floor as an extra cubby hole storage space.

As much as I miss getting that cuby storage space, I do love the music up loud with the top off.

Time to damp a few more spots though. Driver's side speaker was fine when I got her, but now it's in need of attention. Time to go play with the new toy. :involve:

I thought about moving it under the front passenger seat if I find a way to the top of the 'hole in the back' and take measurements

Well, I added the Teraflex 1.5" Sport ST1 System last week to compensate for the larger 315 STT's. It accomplished just what I'd hoped, so I think I will be leaving it for the foreseeable future.

***Due to being personally unhappy with the ride quality of the Falcon shocks, I'm currently running the stock units again. I've been in contact with Teraflex and am most likely going to send them back for re-valving.

Sport S with 391 miles with it's 1st stuck in the mud. The stock Bridgestone tires were no help in an off road trail. Those tires will soon be gone, great gas mileage on them but that's the only positive!
