    that just doesn't look right.....maybe it's the fact that they're on a Heep. those wheels kill the wow effect also.

    $1200 EACH!?!?! Does it cook burger on the trail too? for that price it damn well better.

    looks like that is a 40x14x20 size or something.

    I guess they are a competition size tire, and really not technically available. The rim is a 17" beadlock built by some place called factory tubular. The price should come down eventually like the 37" MTR's did. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Re: 40\" MTR pic

    They are just a 17in wheel, is it really that big of a damn deal? They dont look like dubs /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif And yes, the price is a little to steep, they'll go down eventually. I remember when the 37's ran for 700 a pop /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif And they are gonna cost a little more since they are a radial. If they go down to a reasonable price, I'd consider them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Factory Tubular does a lot of work with Jeeps and monster trucks. They're actually quite a big name and they seem to know what they're doing.

    ? are you talking about salt lakes factory tubular or some different place. Factory tubular deals mostley with old broncos and is into rock crawling comps. Not a huge company.

    Re: 40\" MTR pic

    Hey this isn't a comercial or anything. I just thought people would like to see the new tire, and I happened to run into one. The beadlocks are from the local factory tubular that builds roll cages, and rock buggies. Least from what the counter guy said. I dunno. Sid, I drive by your shop a couple times a week, but never see your Blazer. Guess it's not your daily driver. Congrats on being featured as a top 10 /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Thanks for the pic, any idea on how they measure up truly? I've heard on the PBB that they are 2in taller than the 39.5 swamper /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Do you have any more shots of the tires? Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
