Finally ordered new tires!

Well my buckshots are slick, and im commuting 100 miles a day to school so i knew it was time for tires. After doing alot of talking to my local shop and online i decieded on 31x10.50 Hankook dynapro mts. Everyone locally that has them has gotten over 30xxx miles out of them with proper rotation and one guy had 42,000 miles and still had 7/32 tread left. That sold me on them. They will be here tomorrow and i cant wait to try them out. Total came out to be 620 mounted and balanced. Bfg ats came out to be alil over 700 from 3 shops here locally which was the tire i really wanted but im going to try these. Anyone else have them?

I'll tell you this... I have over 17k+ miles on mine.... You can hardly even tell I do. I bet I have at least 70% tire left.

I have some off road pics, but I am runnin off the neighbors internet, and downloading a lot, so it's gonna take me too long. Gimmie til monday to have some up.

Thats good on the wear. Thats what i was really worried about. I can wait wil monday, i have 2wd so i want to see what a 4x4 can do with them. If it rains this weekend im going to try mine out. This is only my second set of mud terrians and the buckshots i had only had about 7/32s of tread when i got them and they impressed me, so im only dreaming of what 19/32s of tread will do.
