    after talking to a bunch of guys who run the local mud bogs today, i've figured out that the tire that seems to do well on a truck like i'm building is the Ground Hawg. i know these things are supposed to wear like iron, but does that go for the bias version, or is it just the radial version? not going to get into any trail running just yet, as i want to keep this truck nice and straight until at least the summer of '09, from then on who knows...

    anybody else? :dunno:

    i just found out off of Interco's site that they make Hawgs in 38.5" and 40" sizes for 17" wheels. looks like i wont have to "settle" for a 16.5" rim after all. :saweet:

    Being's that they are bias ply, won't they flex okay for trail use as well? I ask because I know where their is some 38's for sale here locally.
