Time for new wheels & tires.

My cragars came in the mail the other day.
Decided on D-windows (15x8)



I plan on getting rid of the red and blue stripe job around the edge of the rims. Dont like it.

Im really thinking about the MTR Kevlars. Can anybody suggest a decent mud terrain tire? And please, I know KM2's are awesome, and I might get them.....but im still open to try any other tire.

Your buying them I guess lol. Then you sell the 32s and make big buckaroos!!



Taylor. I would stick with BFG. the Mickey T MTZ is a GREAT tire but BFG FTW.

Edit: is that a mouse next to that box?!?

I thought about the soft 8's, but I really dont like them much compared to the d-windows. It wont be too difficult to get the colors off.

LOL! I was wondering who would notice the mouse. Its a cat toy.

I am really in a toss-up between BFGs and Kevlars.

I've never had good luck with GY. and I've had BFG on other vehicles and loved them plus scott made me want them. They are the best when cleaned up. The dura is a A/T not a M/T.

Dang I forgot all about Firestones. I had a buddy who purchased the AT's and he liked them a lot.

Thanks! Another one to consider.

Those Destinations look real close to BFG's.
I'm a BFG man myself, But i've heard good things about Duratrec's and the Nitto's recently.

I love my STT's. There are so many different brands and with the mixed reviews it's hard to choose. You just have to go for it.

I personally like the SST's, MTZ's, and Kevlars over the KM2's. Before my Dura's I was thinking about the SST's. They will probably be my next tire on my Bronco.

I'm definitely not a BFG hater either...I have the AT's on my Bronco now and they're my second set.
