    i was at farm and fleet buying some coveralls and some carb and choke on sale for .99$ /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif, im such a hick, any way i seen some tires that looked pretty cool, called mud king radials, they looked like TSL knock offs but wernt very expensive, and there weere some more approprate tires there to for better road preformance, but i just liked how aggresive these tires looked for mud or dirt, oh well i would appreciate opinoins, thanks guys\gals

    Hell yeah, someone else know's these tires. The mold is used by several companies. I even think 4WPW sells them. They're made by Cavalier, but all the molds are the same. One of my friends and about 300 other people have a set of these tires around here. They last about forever and are like you said, CHEAP!!! I think a 35x12.50x15 goes for 140 or 130 something. They work very well from what I've seen. Here's 4WPW page on them: Mud King

    My opinion, they work great for what I do, moderate wheeling. I've had mine on my burb for about 2 yrs now and still have better than 70% left. And this is my daily driver. Grabs good, slings mud good, even good on the ice(then again I'm full time).
