    Can't go wrong with Interco, Nittos are kinda flashy (not my thing), and I wasn't a big fan of my G-Hawgs.

    Isn't this the same as the last thread?

    1) I've never spoken to anybody running Nitto so I can't speak from experience but they seem to be aimed toward the bling mall crawler crowd.

    2) If you want good on-road performance, Interco is not where it's at. For trail and toughness though I doubt they could be beat.

    3) Hawgs have a pretty hard compound and I've heard only work very well in the mud because of it. However, they are also supposed to last longer on the street for the very same reason.

    Get some Dick Cepeks if you want to run 38s as a daily driver and still run off road.

    I would suggest tsl radials if you do alot of street driving.

    I'll never reccomend someone to buy ground hawgs. The set i own chunk horribly.. are crappy in snow, slush, rain, rocks, flatspot quickly, all they are good for is mud, and nothing else... they even suck in dirt if thats possible :o
