    traded out my 38.5 sx\'s for 37\" mtr\'s today

    swampers work so good, to bad they are such low quality pieces of $hit! i dont expect even a decent ride from bias ply but it has to be bearable. i mean i dont have a trailor queen, if i want to go to moab im driving! but at least the mtr's are killer tires that will work until i can afford the pj's /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    buy some procomp ATs for hwy use and toss on your TSLs when you are off the pavement. Problem solved. Besides, if u have a welded rear u can wear down those procomps and get a new set for free... if u dont get 50k out of them, there is a waranty... /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Unfortuneately not, they are pro-rated for the mileage you have put on. It would be nice though, just to keep burning up tires before 50K and get new ones.....

    Have you run the MT/Rs before? I have a couple friends that run em, and they seem to hold up nicely, from what I've seen. So.... I found a good deal on the 37's and I'm picking them up tomorrow. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for them?, or send me a PM if you like. Thanks.

    ya, there is no comparison between swampers and mtr's quality wise, i just wish they came in 40's. i bought all 4 for $750 with tax.

    You paid 750.00 for 4 MTR'S....that's a good deal, there like $1200.00 here, so where did you get them from I could pay to ship them and still come out ahead! Mail me if you would, I would be into that price!

    Don't know what sizes but here's a pic

    [​IMG]

    And what the info said:

    The Parnelli Jones Dirt Grip is a new tire that features a wide-open tread design with sipes in the tread blocks. The sipes should provide some tread flexibility to help the tire clean and cling better than tires without them.

    How about 167x4 no sales tax, but you have to pay shipping, I don't know to alaska but here they cost me $50 to ship them all with UPS ground.

    Actaully, MTR's do come in 40's /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif, 40x13.5x17 to be exact. but unless you are willing to pay $1200 each /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif (lube not included /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif) they aren't very realistic /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif.

    <font color="blue">Hand-made out of competition only compound. The 37s were the same until they were released to the public, then the price went down
