Tractor Tires For My Zuki?

Does anyone know of any tractor tires or extreme offroad tires they make for 15X10 rims? I want 2 for the back of my Zuki since I need 2 back tires! The front tires are brand new so I dont need them. If not I am just going to get the same that are on there which are 31X13.5X15's Super Swamper TSL/SX

You'll have to research... there are agricultural tires that will fit on 15x8s and fit under a stock ranger, but I don't recall the size... there's thousands of them! Other wise, I'd say just match the ones you have on the front...

okay, i like the tractor tire idea, but in that second picture what is that lifted car in the back ground just to the left of your cab? now someone around here has some old sedan with a 4" bl and 3" suspension lift all custom fabbed. The last i saw he had a set of 255/70/16 on there i think. looked like a blast!

definatly either a laser, eclipse, or a talon......what a funny looking thing!!!

btw....i would say boggers...that way if you ever run it on the street you can't get in trouble because the tires aren't DOT approved!

Andy leaves his zuki near the offroading site. So he can get whatever tires and not worry about ripping em up on the highway.

He can waste his money on boggers or go for much cheaper much better tractor tires.

I think it'd be sweet to see a Ranger with those 35.5x11.8-16 tractor tires on it...

My zuki is not street legal for many reasons:

first it has NO rear brakes

second it has no e-brake

third it would not pass inspection for many diffrent reasons

fourth it has no rear lights at all

fifth it has no shocks

and sixth this is the gauge cluster (no speedo)

Oh and I think Andy Roach is pimping either a square rear driveshaft or a drainpipe driveshaft right?

Means low highway speeds..

Tractor tires can actually be quite pricey.. i was pricing some for a Farm-all Super C and they were over 240$ each at the cheapest place.
boggers are proven I'd probably get those if you can find a deal if you want tractor tires
its alot of research but good luck.

I deleted the tractor tire prices but I know he can get the ones I recommened for 148 SHIPPED TO ALASKA so they must be cheaper there.

148 each that is i think.
