why dont you get some BFG m/t's?
Cuz these are $62.00 a tire cheaper than the BFG's and if they are even almost as good as the BFG's then it would be worth saving the $248.00 on a set of four. :imo

Im still unsure on if i like the tread pattern or not...looks pretty agressive tho. Might be worth saving that $250 or so...

but if you get 20k less miles out of them is it really worth the savings? just cause tires look good doesnt mean that they will perform good on or off road. how much off road do you do? find someone that has those tires and find out how long they lasted and what kinda driving they did. also you need to find out what the tires are like since you probably do close 90% of your driving on the road.

:word: :imo

You are more or less buying so many miles of tire wear per dollar meaning a $100 dollar tire that gets you 10,000 miles = 100 miles per dollar...

If you get a $200 dollar tire but you get 30,000 miles out of it then that = 150 miles per dollar

You just need to figure those types of things out before you jump right ahead and say its worth spening less on a tire...sometime you'll be right....other times it will require some more investigation.

I guess you could put all that adise if you wanted cuz this is my point: Shop around and learn as much as possible before you jump the gun. Even if your first choice is the right choice to you, then proove it to yourself before you just spend the money.

That was the whole point of this thread, to get as many opinions as possible.
I never said I was gonna go out and buy them. I'm just trying to weigh them against the BFG's.

They have reviews of these tires at Tirerack.com, from what I've read so far they seem to be a decent tire. :crazy:

As for what kind of driving I do your right 90% on road, but the truck is my primary transportation. So that is probly normal.

They actually wear pretty long, from what I hear. I knew a guy that had Dunlop Mud Rovers on his mid-80's K5 Blazer, and he liked them and recommended them.

Side note, Dunlop is a subsidiary of Goodyear, so its safe to say that its probably a quality product.

again back to my comment...who gives a shit what they look like. i could sculpt a cool lookin statue out of shit but its still just that...shit. he does most (damned near all) of his driving on the street so he should get a tire that has good road manners, then learn how to drive off road with them. there is no need for super swampers or some other super aggressive tire on a daily driver. if you cant drive it stock then dont lift it and get more aggressive tires...they dont teach you to drive better they just help you get stuck faster when you use too much skinny pedal. :rolleyes:
