    looks like a BFG krawler with the sidewalls of a baja belted /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Any idea on pricing? The 37x14.5 is a size I might be interested in /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif then again I have never really been fond of bias tires on my /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    They look sweet and some good sizes for heavier fullsize trucks, if they made them in radial's also would be a great snow/sand tire. They are aggresive but not too aggresive.

    [/ QUOTE ] Somewhere I have an upclose pic of a Krawler. A guy I know is sponsored by BFG and recently got a set for his rock buggy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Problem is my computer started having problems when I took the pics and Im not sure if they are on my computer or not. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif If I can find them Ill upload them.

    He did a fast write up on the Krawlers for Florida4x4.com w/ the true height, tread depth, approximate sidewall thickness, ETC. for the 37s on 17s he got. Its in the general BS forum if anyone wants to read it. Its not much really but it has some specs.

    heres a link to the post.... Krawlers

    I saw a set of the Krawlers on a Heep down in Denver about 2 weeks ago. They kick arse. I would definitly like them for my truck, but I expect price will be to high, and tread wear would be to low. If they can get the prices down to around or just above the 37" MTR I would buy them and use them as an offroad only tire.

    I was impressedw/ them when I seen them. They were taller than a 38x12.50 TSL, nice and soft and I think the tread was like an inch deep. He said they ride 1000% better than a TSL, and his were unbalanced when we went out and he had them on 17in beadlocks. He thinks theyll be about 3-400 per tire.

    In addition to the already mentioned Quad tires, Maxxis is a heavy hitter in MTB tires. I run one of their fronts on my Single Speed MTB. I like it.

    Ya, now I just need to know someone who is a competitor so I can get a set for 20-30% discount over retail price like mentioned on your other board. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    A couple jeeps used the Maxxis Mudzilla at last weeks UROC and talk is that they worked well. Pricing on these looks competetive. I'll be interested to see what the 38.5 for a 16 inch rim will go for. Mudzilla LT /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Who sells a Maxxis tire? I like the look of the Mudzilla (looks like an Xterrain) but have no idea where to look for ordering or pricing.
