    Thanks. I think I am finally decided on the tire I want for my scout project. I am also a firm believer in C.E.E. If it is close enough I can fill it. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I love my MTR's Goodyear just started to fill the orders again since october so if you want them order them soon. They are awsome on rock, great in soft dirt and sand, the sidewalls are about 25% thicker than a BFG too. They are also wide for there size.

    I have 4.10 and auto with no OD and push 2300rpm or so at 60mph, 75mph makes it 3000rpm then I am topped out. I don't mind really, I can spin all 4 in low with the stock 203 on rocks.

    I called Discount tires they have them for 202 ea. The a 20 ins policy in case I happen to shred one on a rock. Or if an air chisel happens to penetrate the sidewall then I only have to pay 20 bucks to renew the policy. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    What rims are you using? Backspacing is an issue for me, I can't find a 16 or 17" rim that doesn't have 4" of backspacing /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif (looking for a 16/17x8 with 3" or a 16/17x10 with less than 4")

    Find a good tire shop. I work for discount (I am a tech no deals through me /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif) The steel wheel company we use can custom make any wheel they offer for an extra $10-$15. If I get 40" MTR's this summer I am gonna put on a set of 17x9 w/3" BS steels. Any good shop will know how and who to call for that.

    I'm using a bart 15" 8 lug. I don't know the back spacing, but it sticks out there pretty far. I bought them used in awesome shape. I got 4 for 200.
