    i see a lot of mall crawlers runnin them but ive never really seen them on the trails. they look meaty though. i would go with a pitbull and get that same look but a lil cheaper. personally i'm a swamper guy.

    I have some 36x14.50's that I picked up for free for spares. They still have a lot of meat on them and measure 35". Can't say anything about performance though.

    Stacey David, on the TV show 'TRUCKS' put a set on an early Bronco that he restored and he reported that they performed well in mud. That's all I know about them.

    I had a USED set of 36x14.5r15 and three out of the four were ¼" out of round. They had good tread depth and worked well with what little offoradingI got to do with them. When I attempted to get them balanced and the front end aligned, the guy said one was coming apart. I decided to sell them and get something else because I could see my windsheild frame moving from side to side when I was looking at the road ahead of me. Couple months later the guy I sold them to was trying to sell three....the other came apart. I felt bad for the guy but I was honest with their condition at time of sale. Everything I had heard about them was good, that's why I bought them. Again, this was a USED set.

    I run them

    I voted O.K. because I still haven't had much time offroad with them but they are great on road.

    They seem to work well in the field mud I play in and I have no complaints about traction on the logging trails and fire raods I have run. They worked well last winter in the rain and snow boarding trips over some ice and snow were uneventful.

    Mine were 36" when new but that is 14.5" wide on a 10" rim.

    Oh... They wear great!
