    I have read quite a bit about the SSR's and they seem really good but pricey.

    Does anyone agree with me that they would be good for me? for a DD?

    the terrain would be
    highway and street mostly, snow and ice in winters, rain, and occasional mud run

    The size would be 33x12.50x15 on a 15x8 with a 2.5" lift

    I got 35x14.5x16.5s on mine, its a daily driver. Being a pickup with a big block, gets entertaining in the rain sometimes, but I think its more the vehicle than the tires. Havent run em in snow or ice, mud and trails they rock. I have about 12k on em, I see another 10-12k in their life. Aint that noisy. I do have a fairly loud exhaust, but, the only time I hear em is windows down, radio off, coasting down to a redlight.

    Ill prob run em again. I thought about Hawgs for their long street life, but they seem to run undersized and narrow from what I hear. I like a nice fat tire myself, not a skinny one.

    I am running 33x12.5x15 on some 15x8 rims, and i drive it on the street everyday to school. They ride nice, i only get vibrations when i hit 65 or higher, but mine aren't balanced. They seem to wear fine, and work well in the snow.

    Just remeber that they are a radial tire and the sidewalls are:
    weak by design ! Also if you do any deep(sidewall deep) mudding in rutts
    watch out of anything sharp in the rutts.
