    <font color="green"> Looks good to me. THey don't hook up quite as well as a Swamper unless you go to work on em with a groover, but they wear like iron on the street. </font color>

    Do you think this stands true for their buckshot mudders too?

    <font color="green"> I have no experience with the Buckshots. I used to know a guy that would get 60,000 miles out of a set of 38" Hawgs on a 6000+lb 1 ton Chevy, that's the only experience I really have with them. </font color>

    <font color="green"> Probably balance as well as any 38" tire... They can't be much worse than a Swamper, those things are usually egg shaped! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif </font color>

    thats a good price. they are a hard tire and will last. ive seen people use them in mud and they do great. they act a lot like tractor tires. i dont know how they would crawl or air down. rubber is hard as can be so they dont ride smoothly

    Like swampers best.then buckshots,more milage from hawgs.Sidewalls are stiffest of bunch and they are directional. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Always had good luck with balance on swampers.White spoke wheels get tires blamed for balance lot of times. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The tread pattern on ground hawgs was origanally a firestone tractor tire tread I think there a good tire they dry rot before the tread wears out as far as the ride goes they are rougher than swampers

    so they don't air down very well and even on a 15" rim they ride stiff, would think that with all thay rubber around them they would be somewhat smooth....think I'll offer less...

    Just how narrow were your 36" buckshots, were they close to a 36x12.5" or closer to a set of skinny dually tires?

    What do you guys think of the 14x35x15 Gumbo mudders? At 183 bucks a pop, nothin comes close, as far as price goes, in that size.

    Re: Ground Hawgs 38\'\'x15\"x10\" Any Good?

    I had a set on a '77 K10 with 10" rims. BIG! They are actually 36" tall and a full 14" wide. A little hard to balance, but what ones aren't. Look mean, ride good, and aren't too loud. Obiviously, I liked them. They are bias ply so if you let it sit a few days it feels like they are square until they work out the flat spots. I would buy another set if I had that much $ to spend. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
