Re: sport king tires? opinions please!
I have the Sport King A/T's on my Scrambler; been on it since I acquired it almost 2 yrs ago. They came well-used and w/ a large/deep gouge in one of the tire's sidewalls.
However, they have held up very well, seem to have worn very well, performed very well on the road/highway/offroad snow, and that sidewall gouge has never been a problem. (I really thought I would have to replace that tire when I first saw it.)
I am due for a new set of tires before the snow begins this year. I was either going to go w/ Dunlop's Mud Rovers or was thinking about going back to the Sport Kings... if I could find them (my Scrambler came from AZ/CA). I'm glad to see they're still available and in the east. Price-wise - since you're on a tight budget, I think the Dunlops are a little cheaper than the Sport Kings. I do not have any personal experience w/ the Dunlops, but I have received much positive feedback from folks on this BBS and the CJ-8 board on them.
Let me know what you go with... Maybe it'll help me make up my mind. (I really wish they made either or both in a 33x9.50x15 [tall & skinny]). I cannot find a relatively inexpensive, tall and skinny tire w/ aggressive tread.
