Lol in some ways I was kidding...yes Thornbirds are in fact AT's, but would I recomend them? No...in all honesty you are asking an allterrain tire to do what a mud tire does. The closest you will find will be the MTR's great tires, and when you air them down the sidewall flex is just sick. My friend has them on his 4runner and they rock. I paid 650 bucks for my 35x12.50 Dunlop Mudrovers out the door lifetime rotate/balance, and full replacement warranty (extra 18 per tire) not the prorated one, and they are wearing great.

Man I love them...When I first got them they were extremley quiet, however after about 10k they got a tad louder. They are wearing perfect which is hard to believe on my truck and for the price you cannot beat them. A group of guys I wheel with went in on a grop buy and got them cheaper. I wish they did a bit better in sand, but they arent as bad as I was expecting either. Im about to get my body lift and I'm going to bump up to at least 36's but want 37's...saddly...no mudrovers over 35's from what I was told.

how many miles you think you can get out of them... I need something that lasts and is functional. I'm looking at 31's or possibly 33's and like the price on those. I can get them for i think 105 bucks each in 31's and around 110 or so for 33's.

You'd be giving alchohol to a minor. Not that I'd mind, but the popos might. IF i have everything running right, I might get there. Fourwheelers been acting a little twitchy lately switching off 4wd.

The STS's probably become slicks in the mud...but they claim they are great in the sand. Interesting tread design none-the-less (leave it to Interco haha)
