    I'm would really like the features of a MT that is still pretty good on snow and ice etc. This looks like about the best of both world that one could get.

    I got an awesome deal to if I pick them up. 5 35x12.5x16 w/ 5 eagle 589's for under $1400.00 mounted and balanced etc. Plus it's got the following...

    FREE Road Hazard Warranty with FREE Replacement*
    FREE Flat Repair Service
    FREE 5,000 Mile Rotations
    FREE Rebalancing
    FREE Air Pressure Checks

    I've included a link below so please let me know how this looks to you.

    That is exactly the setup that I was considering for my build-up. Including size and quantity!
    Mike at Bent and Twisted suggested the tire for the value and all the extras. He thinks the tires were $164.
    Havent done the math but looks close. If you are not in a hurry tell them you will wait until they go on sale-
    might get a few $$$$ off.
    Are you sticking with standard offset?
    Let me know how it goes..... Dave

    I have a set of these and they have about 15K on them with excellent tire wear. They are 33x12.5 and there is still about 3/4 of the tread left and they're wearing very evenly. Much quiter than the MTs that I use to have ( I think they were Mud Kings). They handle well in the mud that I've been in (mud cleans out nicely), but I don't know how well they work in the sand, snow, ice or rocks. Maybe someone else has experience there.

    there is a rancher around here (owns a TONS of land as in hundreds of thousands of acres) that won't run anything else. It's gotta be real good off-road or he wouldn't use it (I know the guy)..There are a LOT of sipes on this thing, and they claim they are really good on ice and snow.

    That is what I'm looking for - pick up a set for me. (2 sets should be cheaper than 1) If I start now I can be at your place by the 4th of July.... When are you making the decision?
