40\" MT/Rs... wowzers!

am i the only one in the dark about Goodyear having a 40" MT/R? Specs show it as a 40X13.50R17LT with a true diameter of 39.8"! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] The pricing is probably ungodly, but it would be a nice all-around tire to have! Then again, the 37x12.5-15 pricing aint bad, so maybe not too bad, and we know they'll outlast a 40" swamper [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Zach, ask your dealer about these, I'm curious as to how much he could get them for [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

That and they're only 13.50 wide. But maybe wider isn't better.

Yes, I've been shopping for tires for a couple of weeks. They had a set in the shop for display I asked how much guy told me $249.00 each. I really like the look of that make of tire but they are pricey. I been thinking about these Cooper Discovery STT PIC . I think they look good [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img].

Re: 40\" MT/Rs... wowzers!

well, the MT/R isnt the greatest gumbo mud bogging tire in the first place, which is where wide really counts. for crawling, in my limited experience, width doesnt matter much, but height sure does, especially if you're not locked. this is the tallest radial light truck tire by quite a bit, so i think it's cool, even if nobody else does [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] i think the radial TSL comes the closest, at 37.1" tall, but this sucker's a full 2.7" taller than that, and they'll be cheaper, ride better, last longer, and carry more weight than those swampers.

Re: 40\" MT/Rs... wowzers!

I agree, very cool. Its about time a company made a 40" tire that could actually be driven on streets without vibrating the hell out of the truck. $250 for a set of 40" MTR's is a great deal I think. I bought my 37's for $195 a piece. I would love to see a set on someones truck.

since you got the 5X5.5 Bolt pattern you can use F150 Rims. THE fx4 one comes to mind-----WWW.car-part.com
