    I got to see a new set of these rockcrawling tires that BFG is making yesteraday. They were 37x12.50x17. They looked like they might be a little taller than the Goodyear 37's. They are being tried out on a Jeep that is making a trip up through Utah and then over to Co. There is and event starting there on Monday. These tires are super soft with big lugs. They have staggered lugs that come down the side about 6-8 inches. I am going back there today and will try to get some pictures.

    Well I wasn't able to get a picture. They had already picked it up from the shop. They were telling me that BFG is going along on this trip, and if you loose a tire they can cut one right there for you. When they get back, I will take a close up to show how well the tread held up on the trail and highway. They are not trailering the vehicle at all during the whole trip.
