mine are like that too. some times the look wide as hell, but mostly look like pizza cutters.

Mine are quite full of vibration, noise and wobbliness. They were good for a while but they have gotten pretty chewed up. Falken rocky mountains for me next

Good tires, my buddy has them on his Tacoma, F250, and Jeep. Only thing I dont like about them are their low tread and non-aggressive sidewall. To an untrained eye they just look like street tires to me.

X2. 99% know nothing about trucks, and think they do because their truck is a "trophy truck with fox racing shocks"

My grabbers have been absolutely amazing in mud, snow, and rock as well. Tire reviews are useless, always someone hating on a tire when they have nothing to compare them with or just for the sake of argument

you obviously dont know any true raptor enthusiasts.

i absolutely hate when people assume 99% of raptor owners dont know anything and dont use their trucks.
i bet its more like 75% actually do use their trucks.
man you guys can be so retarded sometimes.

Not to turn this into another, Raptors are junk thread, but most Raptor enthusiasts don't realize they can build a better truck cheaper than the Raptor comes stock.

Well there's a million ways to tackle that argument lol, let's just say people who buy raptors usually like full warantys and something good to go that will handle plenty of abuse. You can buy a slightly used f150 and build it "better" for cheaper but not many people want there truck to be down for half a year having it built.

Im pretty sure you must be the biggest internet wheeler out there. Every thing you say consists of "i've read...I've seen on a forum....Somebody told me....I dream of...."and so on. i'm not sayin you dont know ****, but im just sayin....... maybe stick to critiquing dome light installs or something.

60 grand? No.
Try 55 fully loaded. 45 base model.
That gets you leather interior, power everything, moonroof, nav, heated seats, etc etc.
You cannot build a raptor equivalent truck. It's not possible. Even with 100,000.
Raptors have things no other F150's have.
Offroad mode, hill decent, etc etc.
Sure I may not own one, but I'm on a raptor forum and have been since before they came out. I know more about raptors than I do about rangers.
