    is that the same as the mt/r's? if so, that's what i run. you'll be un-impressed with them. not good for muddy trails, as the tread doesn't clean real well. kick ass on the rocks tho!

    Sorry Those Are The Wrangler R/t Bias 36" Tires. pic #1 new tire.

    The Ones He Is Looking At Are The 37" Radial Wrangler M/t. And Thay Are A Older Design Of The Newer Mt/r. But Not The Same Tire. pic #2 half worn tire.

    I Would Run Those 37" In A Heart Beat If I Could Find A Set Of Them At A Fair Price.

    oops sorry for the caps lock .

    Any specific reason why you would run them?

    The wheeling I do is mostly mud, but i will also be getting into the "woodsy" type wheelin..so, occasional rocks, stumps, etc....

    I wouldnt run them for the simple fact that they take a 16.5 rim. if you've got beadlocks then it shouldnt be a problem. other than that I dont know anything else about them. after running both 15" rims and 16.5s I wont ever have anything but 15s but thats another arguement.:D

    then in that aspect your good to go but like I said I dont know anything about their traction or wear. however you can usually find them in good shape for cheap.

    I run the 37 MTs and like them alot,they are prefect for my usage.They have great road manners and are good offroad but not a hardcore mud tire.

    Im on my second set,first set I run about 15,000 miles before a couple got chopped up pretty bad from only being able to do the front to back rotation but they still had plenty of thread.They ended up on the yard truck and there working great in the mud now:laugh:

    I found 6 more of them almost new in a local swap guide that I traded for 5 used 285 BFG ATs when the guy fiqured out that they were just alittle too big for his stock Dodge.
    My plan is to have a six tire rotation on 12bolt H1s someday and get many miles out of them!

    Short story long is the MTs are a good all around tires that rides great on road and balance decent.
