Decided it was time for tires...

Since I sold the kuhmo mud terrains i had boughten without mounting since I changed direction with my truck I have still been rolling the stockers. I sold the stockers to my buddy a couple weeks ago just havent had the time to go get tires so i could give them to him. Went to Martin tire today. 235/75/15 Toyo Open Country A/T, and got her alligned shes been pulling to the right really bad for awhile now. and put in a K&N drop in air filter.

Ouch, I've heard terrible reviews from those tires. Let us know how they work for you after a while.

YES!

Take it back. Demand your money. Make a big scene. Get some tires that aren't the spawn of Satan and don't want you dead.

Just my $.02

I use to have tires like that on my ranger, good tires. Good choice. Not sure if they are still the same quality as mine were taken off like 2 years ago but still a good tire.

couple months ago there was a thread on here where everyone bashed the **** out of them.

I've had them for about 5,000 miles and my brother has had them for probably 10k miles and honestly neither one of us have any complaints.
