    Don't get thornbirds unless you plan on driving on the street all your life! I learned that, do a search, you'll see! They clog!

    Has to be 36 or a 38? What about 37? Goodyear MTR's you can get in a 37. Not the greatest mud tire, but a descent lasting radial. There's also the SSR, I know it last longer than a regular TSL, but not exactly sure how long.

    Well if you don't mind a narrow tire these tires will last a very long time. Look under offroad tires for the XL,XML and XZL. They are kinda pricey but are very good tires /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Try a TSL radial. You can get it in a 36x12.5 or 36x14.5 and the 38" TSL radial also comes in skinny or wide. Also look at the new TSL/STS and well as a Gumbo Mudder or Ground Hawg. There are plenty of bigger tires that will last...the question is how big and how agressive do you want?

    you might wanna check into ground hawgs there pretty open but they are REALLY hard compound so they might wear a long time but I dont have them so im not real sure.

    A friend of mine runs 38" ground hawg radials They seem to wear good and they work good off-road ride nice too for a large tire. I've thought about trying some parnelli jones dirt grips, but I haven't heard anything about them.
