    hey guys..

    my dads looking for some tires for his 79 k-20. he said something about bridgstone desert dualers or something...i never heard of them or anything..but i was wondering what the scoop was on them. and also any other tires you think would be a good one. he does mostly all regualer road drivin so...just a little offroad..and then there is winter as well. i was thinking maybe all terrains or something?

    Bryan- thanx

    if you have a winter to worry about, i think i would go with some BFG all terrains, or maybe pro-comp mud terrains they're siped so they do better in the snow.

    but what do i know, i live in vegas. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I run pro-comp mudders, and they are the best tires I've used off road, they are about as good as Bfg AT's in most terain and great in the mud and snow. I've run the BFG's before and they work great when they are over half tread, once under that they might as well be street tires. Then of course are the sh!tty Chapparals that are real popular out here, they are too stiff walled for anything but the mud, and they don't even have the lugs for that /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
