    I've personally only had experience with their high performance/DOT legal racing tires. Their Ectas suck jeeps. THeir Victorracers are pretty good. Not as good as the BFG Race slicks though. Anyways, I digress...

    Anyone use their Truck tires? They look like copies of the BFG MT and some weird combination of the BFG and the Goodyear MTR. THeir significantly cheaper than BFG's, but I wanted to see if anyone had acutally used them, and what they thought of them.

    My buddy in the grey bronco has them now. they seem to be wearing pretty well considering his drivig style. he hasn't taken it offroad latley so no comment on offroad capability. they are obviously better onroad than the swampers beore. but they do look funny---35x15.50 swaprs before---35x12.50 kuhmos now /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    My brother had a set of 35's on his Sub for awhile. He liked them. Worked real well on rocks. Held up in Tellico and Moab. Strong sidewalls, better than my General MT's I had at the time /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.
