picked up all 5 for 200 bucks. one has never been driven on. lots of tread left. all are grooved. they were raced for 100 miles on an offroad ranger. then they gave em to this guy for free and he ran them on his taco for 10k miles.

now i just need to decide on a 17" wheel I like and i'm good to go.

oh and what made me super happy, is they're load range C. truck should ride a bit smoother then it does now!

i love them. its the second set i've had. they wear great and drive nicely.

but these ones have some cracks in the tread, and i'd rather not risk something happening on the highway or something. these new tires are perfect. im a happy camper.

Nice, exactly like i got my 35x17s. Raced for 15 minutes on a track, siped, given to a buddy. I bought them for 500$ w/ no wear(still had lots of full nubs on them) and bought nice shiny chrome wheels for them.

I really like Kumho, great tires, long life, great price.

too bad you didn't go with these :( as a much better alternative..



But on the bright side those wheels are a pretty great price, my set was 950$ shipped to Alaska.

ahhh dude i hope they hold up better for you. had those. hated em. rode crappy and wore down almost flat in 17k. lucily you get em for cheap. but imo i wouldnt waste the money buying 17" wheels. Almost everyone i know or have talked to about these tires has nothing but bad things to say.

how are 17;s a waste when my next set of tires will also be for 17s? i dont want 16s and dont want to step down to 15's.

i dont think so lol
but it all depends on how these look without the spacers. they will stick out a bit more and these tires are a bit wider then my tires now, so we'll see how it looks

These are the HOSS XDs, they seem to stick out a good amount. I have a second set of wheels if my goal was for my tires to stick out a mile from the sides. None the less, I was just commenting that those black wheels look kind of cheap..with all the bolts and ****.

the black ones i saw had over 5" of backspacing. not what im looking for. if they had the correct backspacing i would much rather have them.

but i also prefer the matte black look of the black rhino wheels.
