    Yes, tires have been cover 3 ways from sunday, but I don't remember seeing anything on off brands. Everyone knows about Swampers, and BFG's and G/Y MT's. Lets hear from all y'all running something different. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm running the Parnelli Jones radial. 36x14.50 probably not as big as most of you want, But I like the radial and it works well for me on the trail. Kind of pricey though. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I dont, but my brother is running 35x12.50 regul mt's. They are made by BFGoodrich, and have a similiar tread pattern as the bfg mt's. The do good in the mud, and do good in the rocks. Dont chunk in the rocks, and are pretty durable. We usually run them at about 16 psi on the trail without beadlocks, there are big gouges and bruises in the sidewalls but they havent punctured. They are also daily driven, and are wearing evenly, and are lasting a long time. Damn good tire if you ask me.

    I ran some Wild Country RVTs and some Mud Kings, both of the 33x12.5 variety, on a 90 z71 I used to have. They both did okay in the mud, the RVTs got about 25,000 miles and the mud kings are unknown because I quit driving the truck when they had 6000 miles on them.

    I was running Mud King XT's for a while. They look like a super swamper but the tread is a little tighter. They're made by a few different companies, BFG is the biggest I can think of. Nice tire, it was quiet (for a mud tire) rode well, wore well, but it packed up if you got it in the really thick goo... so I ended up with 36" swampers instead /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I'm running 33" Peerless ATs on my K10 and I like them. They have worn fairly well and only cost $500. I believe they are made by Bridgestone. I've also seen the same tires with a few different brand names.

    Ground Hawg's arn't as comman as Swampers, BFG's Or G/Y MTR's. I ordered (2) 36 x 14.50 r 15 Ground Hawg radials a couple days ago. $603.92 for just 2 tires is kinda high, but I want Ground Hawg's, and that price includes the shipping. Clicky
