The ultimate tire.....

<font color=purple>Would it be a Bogger with TSL/SX sidelugs? A Bogger/TSL hybrid with TSL center & Bogger outer? A 40" Radial MT/R? A Bogger that's 37" tall & 17" wide? A Bogger that's 36" Tall & 9" wide??? Others?</font color=purple>

Re: The ultimate tire.....

I like my Remington Mud Brutes. If they came in a Q78 that's the tire I would buy. I haven't had any problems at all, and they do well in mud. While they are not as good as a swaper, they work extremely well on the road and ony my Jeep.

I think the ultimate mud tire (for me anyway), would be the Buckshot tread with sx sidewall lugs in Q78.

I have become a big fan of the Q78 size lately, partly because of watching them in action and hearing y'all talk about them.

Re: The ultimate tire.....

I would really like a TSL Boger in a 35x12.5 15. I would also like a front axle that would not grenade with these tire on it.... The stock Dana 30 is on the "Hit List" for replacement.

Re: The ultimate tire.....

would be a 35x12.5x16 (yes 16" rim) and a 38x12.5x 16 Goodyear MTR. That way I wouldn't have had to grind my calipers to fit 15" rims. They would also have to messure 35" and 38" not 34.6 or something short like most 35" tires are. Also a 16.5" rim and tire that could be aired down would also be ultimate.

Re: The ultimate tire.....

<font color=purple>Yeah, I really like the pizza cutter Q78's. Had some 255/85R16's on my tow vehicle at one time & would like something like a 275/85R16 on the next one. Just one size larger, but would still work on factory rims & not require a lift (hopefully - the new GM HD trucks are supposed to be taller than current ones). On the other hand, 305/70's & 315/75's would likely cause clearance problems.</font color=purple>

A Q78 Bogger, with TSL center for longer tread life. If you get it to pass, order me 2 sets.

Re: The ultimate tire.....

I used to be pretty picky about tires, but now I'll settle for anything that doesn't come apart at 80 MPH down the freeway!!

Shame too, I liked Firestone tires.

Re: The ultimate tire.....

Firestone made some pretty good car tires.
I haven't used them for years, because we have a deal with Goodyear now, but they used to do pretty good.

Anyway, the point is, ANY tire that doesn't kill me I'm happy with today...
