    stumbled across these pics in the webshots albums...

    some pretty nasty tread patterns, especially the uncut version. i'm sure they are just as pricey as the new muds, it they are even available to the public.

    that picture looks like it is fake. I would guess that the photo is fake, they are recaps, or they are prototype. But to me the pic looks like a fake.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    I've seen those too at the avalanch site....they look pretty sweet! I am sure that they are protos though, hope they come out to the public in a 37x12.50 for a 15 inch wheel. They would look great on my k5. By the way, I love the new "body word" on the blazer...looks mean!

    I don't think they are recaps. See the little "T/A" on the side of the lugs? Must be a proto

    I'd guess they are made for the rock crawler competiors only. If not I think they will be way expensive, like the Baja T/As. They do look very cool- I wonder how tall they really are.

    That's like the 3rd tread pattern I've seen for the new rock crawling tires from BFG. They must have made a bunch of prototypes and sent them out to hardcore shops for testing. I think they should start sending them to CK5 members, I'd gladly test tires on the trails... you can never have too many excuses to wheel! [​IMG]

    no, the new bfg rockcrawler tires have a semi-universal pattern, and you cut them yourself to make the final pattern. I think theres a pic of an uncut tire in the webshots thing posted above.....
