    I've found a GREAT! deal on the tires I plan on running (40in boggers pretty much brand new). The only thing is the truck isn't built yet. Realisticallly I'd say it'll be done with-in a year, maybe sooner but you know how these things go. Anybody have an idea on how the tires would hold up. I can keep them in a closed shop and covered away from weather and sun. I just don't want to spend all this money and then have them rotted when I go to use them.

    My swampers sat for a year when I got em before I ran em. Still runnin em, no issues. I had another set sit for 2 years before I sold em, no issues with em, still running today. And they were a year or two old before they got stored.
