    Yeah that's what I have on mine. They are great for street, dirt, and snow but run about 10 feet in mud and you got racing slicks. I've got a set of mudders I put on during hunting season.

    As long as you only hit the shallow holes.

    My experience with a/t type tires and stuff like that has been wheels spin. I dunno what kind of situation you were in but I know I've gone through some things that I never thought I could've, I will feel the loss of momentum and just give it more skinny pedal and keep going.

    With them no terrain tires you got to keep on the Gas to go anywhere and dont stop in the middle of a mudhole keep them tires spinin I know i had some and only got stuck about 5 times with them cuz i had to stop on the trail in the hole Not that i was sunk down just that the tires had no grip so a Come Along did the job and got me out. My A/T tires didnt last long at all. Churpin them brodies everywhere. now these new M/T's hell no dont turn them over they cost to much.. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif www.zombieoffroading.8m.net

    maybe its becouse my luv wieghs 2600lbs but i have a set of Elderado A/Ts on it and they are great! I had mud up to the axles and the little machine still pulled through. Although i have noticed they dont pack up and the tread pattern is almost like an MT. Perty good tires, not too expensive and they wear realy well /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got them new Xterrains 33 12.50's I really like them they ride nice on the road and tear up the earth offroad. They can throw some crazy high rooster tails into the sky. These tires dig down to traction anywhere we got a steep hill thats not long but steep and even when its rained and the hill is slick i can climb up it from a dead stop in 4lo without spinin the tires. others try it but slide back down the hill with out speed to get up it. might cost some $$$ but if ya got the money check them out. So far they still look brand new and there coming up on the 1 year mark i was told they would last anywhere from 45,000 to 55,000 dependin on how often rotated same as all tires 5,000miles. Dustin has some Brigestone M/Ts on his truck and there a good tire to get also looks like a BFG M/T to me but a little bit cheaper price. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif www.zombieoffroading.8m.net
