they look nice.....ok all i want is a tire that can go through some deep mud and that has some sidewall to help get me through the thick stuff and nice treads that wont cake up as soon as i get into the mud, as for noise im not worried bout that at all, i also want a mud tire with somewhat good tire life cuz this truck is my dd...im gonna run 35's, is that too much to ask for? or is there something similar to what i want?
