the shop i get all the work done on my truck at has installed a few sets of these
i checked em out in person, they seem like a really good tire. the design had to grow on me, but i guess they work pretty well off road.

i think the whole thing should be done like the inner side is though.

Maybe this will make the old ones cheaper!

No? Not even a chance?

Well, crap. I'll just keep hoping.
