    I just got a line on some really cheap aurora mud tires ... 33x12.50... I've never heard anything about these tires.. what's the tread like? does anyone have pic of them? anyone run them in mud? If they're not aggressive, I don't want them.

    thats who makes them. and the pattern is vary vary close. i have a set of 265/75/16 on the back of my truck now and have close to 25k miles on them non rotation wear as it is 2x4 truck. wear is good but yes kind of soft. thay spin nice and straight and no real major hoping and also balence nice.

    pics of them. now you can see where last winter i took and groved them extra on the outer blocks. and also cut the center blocks in 2 blocks. i will get ya some pics tomarow at work of brand new ones for ya with tread depths. we sell these at work.

    I am running Hankook Dyanmic MT's. 33 12.5 15's. Got them on about a year now and they are holding up fairly well. The fronts ones are wore worst than the rear and this is my DD. Hankooks are RT01 and Aurora are RT02. I believe I have the numbers right. They are cheap here and the only difference that i like is the Aurora's have little lines or sippings between lugs to help release mud.

    got the pics for ya. one has a dime in the tread of new tire. and others are just tread pattern and 1 has been mounted on a 15x10 rim 33x12.50x15 tires. thay go for 125-145 new depending on where you get them.

    I payed $600 Canadian for the 33/12.5/15' Hankooks installed and balanced. So you might be able to strike a good deal if you talk them into it. The Aurora's are a little bit more expensive but not much.
