    Does anyone have any experience with 33x12.5x15 Bridgestone M/T, with American Eagle 589's. I have an opportunity to get a set of 4 mounted/balanced with about 1,000 mi on them from the original owner for $600.00. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    That's to much, unless you are getting rims with them.

    Re: BOYCOTE BRIDGSTONE.

    The company just turned over a lager parcel of land with the stipulation that no ORV be allowed. I belive this was posted in the Land use or Chevy section on Off-Road.com

    Re: BOYCOTE BRIDGSTONE.

    Okay guys, I didn't ask for a political opinion. If I was buying these tires new, Bridgestone would not be a choice. But I have an opportunity to buy a set at a greatly reduced price and would like an opinon about the tires. Just because they "look good," doesn't mean alot.

    With respect to what Bridgestone did, I may not agree, but unless as responsible offroaders we collectively police and cleanup after the growing numbers of idots out there, we will not have anywhere to go on Saturday afternoon except the K-Mart parking lot.

    theyt are similiar to bfg muds, my buddy had some and liked them alot. that is a good deal for the wheels and tires...did'nt mean to upset you, but as much as some are trying to rid off roading, every little bit hurts...so no bridgestone for me.
