anyone have good/bad experiences with these tires? Iam looking at a set of 5 that are 35x12.50 and the spare is on a rim for $500. WHat do you guys think? they also have 95% tread on them with a discount tire warrenty.
Alot of rock crawling Jeeps use then. Goodyears softer rubber compound is said to stick to rocks. Although these tires are not as good in the mud as the BFG's there still a really good tire and there directional if you like that sort of thing. Tread life wise they are said to last as long as the BFG's. If they were new tires I would say forget about the MT's and go with the new MTR's but seeing your getting them a little used and for that cheap its a great deal. Jump on the before someone else does!!!!
My son has BFG mudders on both his truck and his jeep and he really likes them, and as soon as my tires wear out I'll have them to. But you should check with Discount tire they probably won't honor the warranty since your not the original owner of the tires.
So how many miles could you expect from these and how are they on the road? It's kinda hard to tell whith the HUMVEE's. I can get into a set of them for only 5 bucks more a tire than the AT/S's. So if they wear and handle well, I just might do it.
Can't tell you what kind of miles to expect, I've been buying them at surplus auctions used, however I can tell you that for the 37" tires they run exceptionally true on the road. I've had no trouble balancing any of them and they track true, and are the quitest mud tire I've ever run.
