    Hey, is anybody here running the wild country RVT Traction tires on their K5s? I was looking at getting some 33x12.50r15s's, but I'd like to know how rough they ride. Any comments on this? If they ride too rough, I think I'll go with the TXR's. Thanks for any comments!

  6. i've had two sets of TXRs and think they are a great all around tire. they are more agressive then a bfg all terrain and ride real nice too.

    I've had several sets, they ride great, are as good in mud as any milder mud terrain, and I've put over 50k on one set I had.

    I had a set of 35" Wild Country RVTs on my K5 and they worked great. They are a long lasting tire, probably the longest lasting tire I have ever seen.

    On the K5 I have the WildCat EXT's which are a more aggressive traction tire than BFG's IMO.
    So far they are wearing very well and the ride is pretty decent. they have a nice hum to them but not so bad that it is annoying.
    The only downside to them is that when I measured them the other day they came in at 31"
    Other than that I am happy with the way they perform.
    On the 73 C20 I have the WildCat LT which is a pretty good A/T tire that rides realy smooth and is wearing well too.
