    I am looking for some tall tires for a decent price. I see that General Grabbers are $140 each. How is the sidewall strength and actual tire height on these tires? Any experience is welcome. Also any other input on any 35"ish tire that is good for a good price. I like BFG's, but I can't afford $165+ a tire for the BFG's or MT/R's. Thanks

    I got a set of General Grabber MT's on my buddy's truck. I liked the price, they seemed to dig pretty good, not too noisy and I got really good wear out of them. Downside is the true height was a shade under 34" when new, and I could never keep em balanced. Had em re-done 3 times in 4 years and they could stand doing again.

    I'm not sure I'd choose them to save $25 a tire...

    I had the old style bfg's and wasn't too impressed. I have heard the newer ones are better though...also closer to advertised height.

    I got a set for the wifes truck, They were cheap and hard to balance, but she's just a "poser" so performance don't matter!

    Hey the Harley

    I just read a review of Kumo Ventures M/T's on Offroad.com From what I read the guy beat the hell out of the tires. I tried to find the page for you but I can't seem to. Anyway I called Big O yesterday about them a 35/12.5x15 sells for 150$, The Kumo web site says that Discount and Big O carry the tires, As I said I called Big O the guy I talked called his wearhouse and it seems they don't have them anywhere.
    I would try them out when it comes time for new rubber.

    They are good tires and are sold as several different brand tires. As far as second hand info I heared they have a very thick sidewall. Facts, it is a 2-ply sidewall and they are about 1 1/4" shorter than a BFG when both are new-34 3/4 vs 33 1/2 for 35x12.50-15 in both brands. My 33x12.50-15 were shorter than Grims 32x11.50-15 BFGs.

    Tires for trucks are best priced on online stores like ebay and google, but got to settle for other vendors too who give fair discounts and reasonable prices.

    Internet autoparts shop is the most viable location to have those parts for your truck, must check it.
