    Might I be so rude and ask what you paid for them, and to possibly post a link to some pictures of the tread patten? I'm doing research on tires in just that size. Will you need to do some fender surgery? Is your truck lifted, and if so, how much? Sorry for all the questions, but if I don't ask, I won't know! Thanks!!

    CONGRATS on the new ones-
    as some of you know, we finally put the 305's on the D/A,, only to have a guy call tonight- and offer me $500 for the 4 of them... needless to say the firestone stock slippers are going back on tomorrow morning, and I'm going to meet the guy at the tire place, give him the 305's, he hands me cash- then home to order my mickey thompson baja claw radials- oh 35's that is! cant wait!

    Didn't you say you had the SSR's before? If you did I would be interested to hear the comments on the difference on your rig. I've run Bias ply swampers before on a old ford, but never the radials. Keep us posted.

    Thanks for the link! I realized this afternoon just how inadaquate my tires really are. I went on the K&amp;I 4x4 club's annual "Chili Run". We had approx. 4 inches of snow last night - and I could only get about 200 yds. into the first trail. It was all uphill too, so I really had to work at it! I'll post a link to pictures as soon as I get them developed. Man I need tires!

    I got my SSR's put on today.On the road they do alot better than I thought they would.Around 10 miles an hour reel bumpy but around 30 or 35 they do great just a light hum.
    I don't know about offroad though haven't had a chance
    I will try and get some pics up in the next few days.
