Yeah what's up with the Toyo tires. I thought Jeep partnered with Pirelli for run-flats on these?? Are they saying Toyo is BETTER, or are they saying a run-flat will not help them? What kind of message is this sending (to us)???

Any more photos?? Is that YOU, that kind of looks like Jebzter... ???

Isn't the race on today or is the Jeep not on yet? Next leg??

Toyo is a sponsor, so the Jeep has to roll on the Toyo. It has nothing to do with what Jeep is providing.

Toyo is one of key sponsors so they had to change them. I do not think Toyo makes the stock size so they probably had to plus size them a bit.
