Griggs liked his, and I can't say I've ever heard of anyone not liking them. If they discontinue the MTRs I'll probably go that route for street tires.

I know 31's look beefy on a stock ranger. They have an aggressive sidewall that helps it look angry.

Great tire. I had them in 33x12.50's on my 98 ranger with 3" body lift. I can't find pictures the the STT's mounted at the moment. I'll find some later. I would definitely consider them again. When I got them they were 700 installed or something.

Yea i cant understand why you want to get rid of your brand new 35's? What is the advantage of getting 33's? you are only going to lose money for a smaller tire. I say stick with the 35's till they die.LOL

Just put the BL on and cut the valance, its not that hard. You can easily mod the brackets so the brush guard will still fit.

how were they in mud?
They were pretty good in everything, really...
They sort of sucked in ice or real light snow. Deep snow they were great. They went on to my sport trac when I sold the ranger.

I think Adam had them and said they wore out really quickly for him. I think they are good looking tires though, very similar looking to the Toyo MT.

I don't know how long exactly, I switched them from the ranger to the sport trac. I drive my trucks really hard. The sport trac had lockers front and rear. I had the tires probably atleast two years, still more than 1/2 tread. They started to get noisy but that is expected. Lots of mud/rocks/sand/etc and never had any flats and punctures or anything like that. I was very close to getting another set for the F150, but wanted to try the new BFG M/T.

So far so good. Smooth quiet ride, great in the rain ice and snow. No real mud yet. Only around 3-4k miles on them.
