    :confused: 35 x 12.50 x 15 , is 167.00 each actually pretty good i guess.
    it is a little more aggressive than the radial claw, but design for highway use.

    really? the only ones I have seen prices for are the ones for 17" rims and they were like $300 apiece but thats not too bad. I paid $95 for my 35x1250 retreads and that was more then I could afford.

    i've found that tires on 15 or 16.5 rims are the most inexpensive - start doing 16, 17 ... and for some reason the tires get more expensive. i don't get it - they use less rubber to make the same tire w/ a bigger wheel diameter.

    I've got a couple thousand kilometers on mine, with 750ftlbs of torque in the cummins and driveing like an ass. they're showing surprisingly little wear. but its been cold a crappy here, wait till the temps come up then I'll see what they do.

    I have had mine on for about 4 months and about 7,000 miles.
    they still look new, ride comfortable but a wee bit louder. i think
    they are a great design. two thumbs up...
