    Im thinking about running the 37s. what kind of mileage should i expect out of them? how wide are they. the local tire shop wants 210 a tire. how good are they in the mud and sand?

    I know someone running them on a yota and he rants and raves about them. They crawl really well on rocks. Dont know how they do in the mud tho, he stays out of the stuff for the most part.

    i run the 33's and after 8 months i've still got 70% tread. i love them on rocks and the street, they do fine in the sand but i don't care for them in the mud. when it gets really mucky they don't clean themselves very well.

    They are listed as being 12.50" wide. I've been running a set of the 35's for a couple of years now and really have no complaints. The truck is mostly a trail toy and in my opinion they get better traction than the BFG mud-terrains I had previously under all conditions (mostly dirt, mud, and loose rock around here). I really don't know about mileage since they probably have as much wear from spinning in the mud and on rocks as they do from pavement driving. One thing I have also noticed is that the BFG's seemed to get a lot more noticable scratches/cuts in the tread and sidewall than the MT/R's do.

    My buddy has it on his truck, he loves them. They grip very well on the rocks, and they use a pretty sticky compound. Sticker than the BFG MT's. Though in my opinion, the MT's are better for loose things, where the wider spaced lugs are more of an advantage. The other thing is, the Goodyears has some really really tough sidewalls. Flexy, yet tough!
