Tires?

Anyone know of some good offroad tires (not All Terrains) that won't wear too much on the street. Pro Comp Mud Terrains suposedly don't wear too much and are suposed to be good offroad so i am leaning toward them. Please reply.

I knew a guy that had mickey thompson radial claws. He went from north carolina to california and back and they still had alright tread.

Anothe good mud tire that wears realy well and has low road noise is the goodyear MTR's. My brother and several of my friends have them and have gotten lots of miles 50,000 average. I am planing on getting a set my self.

I saw a set of those on a Chevy up in Albuquerque last week and they look really good. They people you know that have them, what do they say about their performance off-road? highway? I was really impressed on how they looked.

Re: Tires?

I had some buckshot mudders on my old F250. They handled highway miles great. They do good off road and they're cheap.

Re: Tires?

I have ridden in a few rigs a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 with 35in GYMTR's a 2004 Jeep Rubicon 31in GYMTR's a Chevy LS 33in GYMTR's offroading, interstate, and the city. As for the mud and snow thay grab and sling perttie well for the most part thay didn't clog up and can easly make a small hole a lot bigger with the 33's and 35's on the trucks we were using to go hunting. The Jeep my friend has, we took out and did a little rock crawling over a pile of busted up flightline materal waiting to be crushed. It grabed rocks and handled the sharp edjes better than I thought it would. Then again it is a Jeep Rubicon I am talking about. On the corners and rebar we avoided what we could and did leave a healthy gash in the side wall of one tire. As far as highway and city driving I have felt AT's that put out more vibration and howled a lot louder than these tires did. The only thing I did't think handled well was hard ice. The tires had a real tough time getting grip compared to an AP tire witch was under standable but over all I was very impressed and am looking foward to getting a set on my latest project truck. My 92 S10 will really be able to go were I want it to then. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
