5 33x13.50x15 pitbull rockers

here's an ad i found on craigslist:

5 33x13.4x15 Pit Bull Rockers

what do yall think about this deal? the tires look nice and imo they would look sick on my truck once i get lifted, being that they're 13.50.

what do yall think? pricewise and tirewise

Daily driver? Do you offroad much? If you answer yes to the first question and no to the second then I don't think you will be happy with them.

You don't want them, way to aggressive for a daily driver that doesn't wheel.

well in that case im deciding between the BFG KM2 and the Goodyear Duratrac. i know the duratrac will be better for a DD but i really love the look of the km2

Go with the DuraTrac. You'll be much happier with them for a daily driver.

Size wise yes would look good. For only 2,000 miles look pretty worn in the middle imo. Thats the size I have on my truck and just got my second set of toyo mts put on this morning. For the price spend the extra 200 and get the toyos brand new. I have ran my first set for three and a half years now and drive bout 100 miles round trip a day to and from work.

I've heard the KM2's last over 50K prolly around 60K, but that might have been based on the old version

the duratrac will surely last longer than the km2 though right?

My 35x12.50R18 KM2s have 26-27k miles on them, over 60% tread if that tells you anything.
Great tire for a daily with weekend duties. Mine are starting to get a little louder now, but I also just rotated them and they are always noisy at first. Rotate them every 3k miles and keep the proper air pressure in them and they will last a good while.

Well let me correct myself, officially my tires look to have 13/32" tread left. Brand new they had 20/32". So technically 65% left if you were to run them bald. 2/32" being legal minimum, you could say that the tires have roughly 50% tread left.
Here is what the look like now.



Man it's about time for me to get some new rubber. haha

i love my km2s, would definatly recommend them.. although im really starting to like the look of the duratracs.. guess it just comes down to preference, both are great tires...

and to brianj, what would you say the 'proper air pressure' would be for the km2? (33s)

I don't know, psi varies depending on load range, wheel width, etc.
I experimented a little when mine were brand new, started with 35psi front and rear I think. The front tires scrubbed the outside edges a lot, and the rears scrubbed in the center more. I ended up at 37-38psi front and 34 rear, and they wear pretty even all the way across on my truck.
Rotating them frequently helps them wear well too. Not just front to back but also left to right, so you aren't wearing out the braking or drive side of the tires more. I noticed when I was just rotating front to rear, one side of the tread started to round off a bit.

Usually when you get tires they tell you how they should be rotated.

Mine are front to back only

Somehow I doubt that. There are a few directional tires out there but almost all truck/suv all terrains can be rotated left to right.

This is the recommended rotation pattern for most tires (a and b), and it's also probably what is in your manual. Show me the direction tires that you have.

I have Bridgestone Dueler A/T's. I was told since they were directional I could only go front to back

But I could be totally wrong

I'm pretty sure those aren't directional tires. It's not a big deal anyway, most tires are fine just rotating front to back. I've only noticed rounded tread on one side on a couple of aggressive mud terrains, and only after some time. I never noticed anything weird on the couple sets of all terrains or car tires.

Why not go with an all-terrain? There are several great choices and they have much better road manners.

Oh well. They're wearing good so I think I'll be alright.
