Ever Heard of these Tires?

Have you ever heard of these tires? Are they any good? I looked for them on AOL search and Summit Racing and havn't found them. The tire says Summit 'Mud Dawg Radial H/V'. Let me know your thoughts.

Thay are on a co-worker's Ranger. I don't know the guy real well, so I figured I ask ya'll before I asked him. There are maybe 15 cars in the employee parking lot at work and 4 of them are Rangers.

Thanks Greg! They have the tire on there, but it doesn't tell much about it of the price.

Nice tread pattern -- siped hybrid AT/MT design. Could be a nice all-round tire.

They are only sold at one place near where i live but it's about 10mi north in AL... They are pretty good mud tires, and they only thing I've heard bad about them is they don't stay balanced long, but I have to get my A/Ts balanced every 5k or so...

I would consider getting a set if I had a 4x4, but it's just worthless...

I don't really hear any of them in the parking lot at Lowes, and I don't have any friends with them on their trucks, so i couldn't tell you, but someone told me their MT/Rs only lasted 18k mostly on the road...

Your factory rims are only 7" wide, so i wouldn't put a tire wider than 11.5" on them.
