    What are your opinions about them?

    I'm looking at some 35x12.50x15's for my '74 Jimmy. At COOP, they can get them to me for $178 per tire, mounted and balanced. I'm thinking of jumping on this as it's cheap enough for a mud tire nowadays.

    I bought a set off of a guy who only had about 500 miles on them. I paid $400 for them and I think they are pretty good for the price. Traction is good for what they are and they seem to be fairly tough for a non big name tire......

    Its not a bad tire at all. I think you'd be prety happy with them for the price.

    I've got a set of em in 33x12.50. A little short for the stated size, don't know if the 35s are short, too. They were good in everything but very wet clay.

    i had a set on a 94 k5 daily driver i had. they were 31's or 32's i can't remember. they lasted about 50000 miles, but i took'em back to co-op every 5000 miles & had them rotated & re-balanced. our co-op does it for free if u by tires there. i was not impressed by how they did in the mud, i only went hunting in the truck. the tread would fill up fast. but they were little tires the bigger ones have tread that is farther apart & would prolly do better,

    I had 33's on my 85. I also have some on my 88 currently. They are a great tire. They last a long time. They have great road manners. They are also pretty quiet. Only downside is that they do tend to clog in the clay and tacky mud. If you keep them spinning they clean out O.K. They also to great in the sand. Les Schwab sells them. I don't know if they make them or not, but that is how they are marketed. They really stand behind the tires too. One of the best warranties I've delt with.

    How well do the 33's and 35's balance? Do they ride smooth on the highway?
