yeah as long as you don't mind the noise you will love them offroad. To me they don't ride bad at all. It did take a lot of weight to get them balanced but they ride way better than my mt/rs because they had the green slime in the tires.

The first time I got the LTB's it came with a tire warranty, no questions asked tire replacement but that company tried to throw an extra 90 bucks on top after I bought them, so I had to get ones without the warranty. dammit

I tried to buy my tires through discount but they wanted $880 and I got them shipped to my door for $625. So I can basically just buy 2 more LTB's for the same price haha. I need a spare anyway. I don't think the 29" spare I have is going to help very much haha
