Have you guys ever heard of this tire?

Over on the commander forums I saw someone who posted a pic of these tires and was wondering if anyone has ever heard of them. They look cool IMO, i wonder if they are any good in the mud!

EDIT: Ok for some reason it wont let me insert and image?

Anyways i guess you guys wont get a pic. Maybe someone else can post the pic. It's a Nokian Vatiiva MT

Hey man thanks for posting the pic. Unfortunately i would need at least a 2 inch lift on the commander to fit them because the smalles size they have for a 17 inch wheel is 265/70R17. That would rub stock on the commander!

They almost look like a Nitto Mud Grappler. Which is a very good tire.

I thought that same thing when i first looked at them. They carry the price tag of a Nitto mud grappler too. They cost $228 a piece for 285/75R16's.

Agreed!

A bunch of the ricer-cars around here have had those tires. I will say in their defense they are a well sipped tire and appeared to work well on wet roads. Their ' lifespan ' was quoted as being miserable by those owning them though. Hey, if they can toss all that cash into a turbo setup, they should be able to afford the tires as well.

Tire costs? Mine I get at a flat rate of 200$ each and shred 4 a year. Their normally 225-250$ each.

If you want something good, its going to hit the wallet.

Goodyear is offshoring their RSA brand/model tires, I wont be buying them anymore and will be moving to KDW-S BFG's.. $$.
