Re: buying tires

well the first question would be what terrain are you wheeling, mud, rocks, parking lots? and how much.

Re: buying tires

Swamper & boggers won't last you long on the street, especially for the price.

I'd find a good, respectable mud terrian like BFG, Dunlop mud rovers, or something in that range and go that route if it's a driver/wheeler. They will perform better on wet streets too.

Good luck with the hunt.

Re: buying tires

Us around here we all run gumbo mudders. They wear pretty good and they do not ball up in the mud they do great in the sand and the snow. they are a good all around tire but are pretty expensive I have also ran the les swab wild country TXR's they are pretty good but i don't recomend sipping them.Hope this helps.

Re: buying tires

Its doubtful thatif this truck is a DD youwill ever get inot anything that a mud terrain wont handle. Stay away from from Swampers and Boggers, not good for a DD.
