I picked up two 38x15x15" Ground Hawgs for $100. They have only been on the road for 2-weeks and the guy does not like the looks of them. Dunno why he only had two of them on his truck though [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

they don't look quite 5" taller- how do they measure?

I'm not sure just yet. I'll probably try to trade them for some Super Swampers in equal condition...or take them to some local mud-bogs and try to re-sell them there. The 33s are being traded for a Ford FF D-60 rear axle. If I see some local trucks doing especially well with them I'll just buy another two and use them when I lift the Wrangler high enough (should be in another year or so.)
Right on the sidewall it says that it is rated for a 15x10" rim, which seems pretty narrow for a 15" wide tire. I remember reading somewhere that these tires do very well in sand since their construction allows them to be aired down more than usual [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

The Dunlops measured a true 32", at 50 psi (I last ran them on a F-250 flatbed loaded with gear.) The Ground Hawgs measured 35.5" un-mounted. If you look at the pics in the first post you can see that the center of the tire is caved in a bit, so I don't know how much bigger they will get when mounted and aired up.

Yeah, I just priced them over at the National Tire and Wheel website. They sell new for $206 each! I rolled them next to my Jeep while its on the hydraulic lift at the shop and they sure do make the 31s currently on there look tiny. hopefully I can find out what happened to the other two...
