    I can get 35x12.50x15 MT's for $140 each. Just wanted to know if it is a good price and if anyone has them, what they think of them. Thanks.

    I've seen them for as low as $120 each... I know NTW has them for $129.

    It is $140 with no shipping because I can get them locally.

    Not sure on how they work...

    Tire Rack sells them for $126 in 35x12.50x15.. The only bad thing is you have to pay extra for Mounting, balancing and road hazard..

    Here is the links to their list of 35" MT's:

    Wayne, I had them on my Jimmy for 3 years...they dig hard and self clean very well! They were also reasonably quiet until a ball joint wnet on me on a long trip...[​IMG]
    Mine also wore very well, they had 30,000 miles on them when I took them off and they had between 40 and 50% left on them. I took them off because I got a smokin deal on some 36" Swampers...but I kept them for long road trips.

    I have no probs w/ Generals my self... probably not the best, but a heck of a deal for the price. I do really like the Pro comp MT's I picked up though...

    I have nothing but great things to say about Generals. I ran
    a couple sizes of A/T's, then graduated to 33" and 35" M/T's.
    I've since moved onto Swampers. But IMHO the Generals are
    a superior tire to, for example, BFG's. 'Round here with the
    sharp rocks, Swampers rule. But pretty much the first choice
    for radials are in fact Generals. I had better luck with them
    than SSR's too. One local shop sells the bulk of them, and
    actually recommends them over BFG's for the local terrain.

    Case in point: I cut down 2 Generals over many miles and
    years. Over the same period, a good friend cut down 6
    BFG's.

    I've never had a good experience with any General tire. Every car/truck I've had them on was plagued by flat tires. It's like the old saying, You get what you pay for.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!!
