i just put 2 sets of 37x13.50x22s together last weekend, and from the reviews from customs we've had, they are a very nice tire. On road they are pretty quiet, and offroad, the are a very good preformer. when i put them on the balancer, they didnt have any bounce to them at all, smooth spinning, which is not normal for such a larger tire.

Those? I also thought they looked like a good tire and was waiting on some reviews on treadwear.

yup same tires. the tread wear is normal for an offroad tire, probaly around 35-45K.

They're not too well known for some reason. I've personally only heard good things and their price can't be beat.

I put two sets of kumho 35/12.5/15's on my 79 F150 and they were (to date) the best offroad tires I've ever owned. That's what's going on my truck at the end of summer =].......can't wait!

I like how aggressive the tread and sidewall looks. I will keep those in mind if i need another set of tires.

I've had three sets of offroad tires I bought new...


Kumho Venture MT's = Best

Cooper Discovery SST's = Pretty Good(Not so good in rain or sleet conditions)

Dunlop Mud Rover = DO NOT BUY!! Completely sucked, worst tires ever...I had one tear a sidewall with less than 5,000 miles. Handled much worse than the Coopers in the previously mention weather.
