    What type of wheeling? From what I have seen with a good friend of mines STS's is that they SUCK a big one.

    I have NEVER heard anything good about those tires. A few friends made the mistake of buying them and they hate them. ZERO traction unless you're wheeling the mall.

    My buddy Marv runs them on his buggy. He had them all around until he cut a couple and found out how bad they sucked so he put the Claws on the back to help out till he could afford new tires.

    Sofar from everything I have seen and he has said from sand, rocks, dirt, etc they are a bad choice and investment.

    that sucks! i heard, of course from the company, that they were a good tire. i guess not!

    they would have been used for mostly street. my truck is no where near ready for offroading yet, im still working out a lot of problems... im trying to find a tire near 38-40" that is pretty good for street use, bfg and procomp stop making all terrain for 15" rims at 35" tall... almost every company does, and i love small wheels big tires...

    what tire would you guys suggest for me? i want the most life. for basically street driving. i know by the time i get ready to offroad whatever i buy now, will be old.

    im looking for a 38-40 inch, for a 15" rim, width doesnt matter.

    38 - 40 in tire!!

    if its not ready to wheel then why waste them money.

    get some 33s so you wont have to worry about your breaks or breaking anything else before you are ready to wheel..


    stay away from sts

    well if it happens to be that way, you need to invest a little more and get a radial tire.

    bias ply will only last you about a year as a daily driver
