The truck looks good man, but I'm with a lot of the other people, I HIGHLY dislike those tires performance wise.

Despite the others...i like the tires. They perform better than BFG MT's...and that is side by side comparison in mud!

Looks good. I have heard that thornbirds suck and have seen a video of a truck stuck in dry dirt with them before. Let me know how they do offroad. U should get pretty good mileage outa them. As far as them beatin BFG's in mud, I dont know. There are alot of factors that go into tire traction. Sometimes ur tires will grip, sometimes they wont. I have had my BFG's in mud, rocks, and sand. They did pretty well in sand but as with any mud tire they will dig if u spin them alot. They grip good on rocks but nothin extreme. They do really well in the mud but in super tacky mud they will pack up. They clean out pretty well tho if u spin them one good time and they sling some mud!!! I never knew thornbirds were made for sand. Everyone around here has always called them a mud tire. It makes sense now. I bet they would do pretty well in sand too. Ur truck looks good tho man
