    The sidewalls SUCK on the rocks /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. The sidewalls are weaker than BFGs IMHO, and that sayin much....The second hard trip out with em, I warrantied 2 side walls, and really tore up another good, but had to keep it. I guess they would be alright for mud, but I don't do mud...The 35-12.5-15 tires wore 4/32 on the street with only 4000 miles, balanced and correct alignment. If I had it to do over again(which basically I did), I would have got MTR's or SX's . I run the coopers on my street truck now, no hard wheelin for them babies.....

    Rocks really isn't my thing. I'm more into exploring up in the forest. Quite a bit of mud up on those trails. Some small rocks, but nothing like you guys see when you're crawling.

    That's the STT's right? I don't have any first hand experience but I know a few of my friends that had jeeps and a ford had them and knicknamed them the <font color="blue"> S</font color> tuck <font color="blue"> T</font color> ruck <font color="blue"> T</font color> ire. I do see alot of them though and they don't look that much different from other similar tires.

    I used to run them on my 88 and on an old 4runner. They worked really well in loose mud but if you put them in some thick gumbo you were done. The big problem I had was with the wear on the road. Had a hard time keeping them balanced thus they wore out real quick.
