    I had the 36x14.50 radial ones on a Jeep I used to have. They wore down kinda quick on pavement, but they were VERY quiet for being such a big and aggresive tire. They also did really well offroad. So quiet you won't believe it!

    Good in mud[​IMG], Very Bad in Sand[​IMG]
    I had a set of 38"s for about 6 months then traded for a set of Ground hawgs. I was much happier with the Ground hawgs,
    but I drive in sand alot
    They are both pretty much considered "Old School" tires [​IMG] Kinda like "Tru Tracs"[​IMG]

    i could ever have found but the price was right and there great in the mud but wander all over the road
