Anybody have 35\" Uniroyal Laredos willing to sell?
 
My truck right now has 33"x12.5x16.5 tires and I love the tires. The tread design is really cool, but I dont know where to find any. Also, I think a really wide tire would look cool, like the Baja Claws or Baja Belted. Give me some opinions on some good tires for an '86 Chevy Silverado. Thanks.
Mike

Does anybody even know where I could find these laredo m/t tires? I've never heard of them before.

I just got some 33x12.5x15 Goodyear MTRs, and I really like them. They are very quiet on the street, and handle well. So far I have only done some mild offroading, due to a driveshaft problem, but they should do very well offroad once I get that fixed. I'm sure Tex will give his usual Cooper Tire speech.

<font color=purple>If you're upgrading to another size up, I'd personally suggest NOT repeating the Laredo M/T route. I had a set of these & really did not like them. My main experience with radial mud tires focuses around these, the BFG MT & the Cooper STT. I like the Uniroyal the least of the three because it has the worst street manners. Much less stable in corners than the BFG or Cooper. The Cooper lasts the longest (and because of that & its price, it's my favorite), while the Uniroyal & BFG are quieter (the BFG the quietest of the 3, but the Uniroyal isn't bad). All three seem pretty evenly matched in the mud & relatively the same in snow. If you really want to stick with the Uniroyal, I'd think they'd be pretty easy to find (they are around here). But, having had them & other tires, I'd not pick the Uniroyals again. Just my $.02.</font color=purple>

You can not go wrong with BFG's they are an outstanding tire! aggressive long lasting tread and a triple sidewall[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Plus even the smallest towns have a tire dealer that carries BFG this is a good thing in case you ever have a problem or a warranty claim!!!
