    I have never had them but always hear good stuff about em. A fella at pirate4x4 runs a set on his yota mud racing truck. He swears by em so do a search over there. They give you about the most tread depth possible in that size tire.

    I ran them on my '79. They were great. They are a good bang for the buck. The only reason I don't run them now is because they are too small for my lift! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Re: super swamper Q-78\'S?

    I ran a set of Dick Cepek Q-78 Mud Country tires on one of my K5's many years ago. They would dig and claw their way through just about anything. Be aware that hard cornering will be very odd though. The Q-78 is so tall and skinny that the sidewalls tend to lay over when pushed hard into a curve. It's a really strange feeling! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
