    35\" M/T Baha Belteds?

    Just talked to a guy and has a set of 35x16.5x14.5 Mickey Baha Belteds mounted on Welds singles. Smokin' deal, just wanted to know if anyone on here is running these M/T's? If so, comments? loud on the road? pack up easy off road? with the 14.5" width, will i have to use flares? oh yeah, rims are 9.75"w but he couldn't tell me backspacing. I asked but he said "just stock" ? Any input is appreciated. BTW - Anyone got pics of thier K5 with weld singles? thanks.

    They look to me like the most worthless tire ever made...but I've never seen anyone that has them attempt off-roading with them.

    I think those things should go right up there with "stuckbirds".

    I think they look cool on parking lot queens because of the width, but I have never seen them offroad.

    <font color=blue>My dad had those but in 15" They work great in sand and actually work pretty good in mud as long as the sidebiters can grab. They were OK in rocks but could be a little softer.

    A buddy had them on a 4Runner and they worked well on road, sand and dirt... but on the rocks, they got eaten up! The lugs on the edges had chunks ripped off. And if I can remember correctly, they were pretty loud on road.

    Re: 35

    Thanks for all the opinions guys. I did wind up buying the rims/tires (see new post) Well worth the $300 for the set of rims&amp;tires, but judging by what you guys say, the Baha's are pretty much worthless. O'well. Thanks again.

    I know quite a few guys that run the Baja Belteds on prerunners, and they work great (big surprise, since that's what they were originally designed for[​IMG]) Mostly they are a dez/dune tire - not much mud in Baja during most of the year, ya know?

    ......And knowing is half the battle

    You still got a good deal, those wheels ain't cheap! Just run those tires til they're bald or until you find some new ones.
