Don't do it, those things suck to balance. Your tires are worth more

Dont get them they are great off road like almost any interco tire(except thornbirds). But they wear like a swamper, you will get 20000 more miles out of the bfg's

I kinda like the look of them. If youre going to get decent tread life out of them then go for it but if not then i would just stick with the tires you have now.
