check out mastercraft tires (made by cooper), three of my tires have about 40k on em and they still have 50% tread left.

they are great tires in snow and mud.

yeah but if the road is cold your tires don't really wear that much. And turning isn't that bad. i guess wheelin could be a factor for him.lol

I got BFG's. Many have gotten long life out of them and they do pretty good in mud. If u want a full blown mud tire go with boggers or ltb's

I love my toyos and will buy another set when theses wear out. They wear good I put around 100 miles a day driving to work and back. I have not had a problem in the sand, snow, or mud. I got stuck in the mud once and thats cuz I was on the frame and being dumb lol.

The toyo's are sipped so get those. They still have aggressive tread and look great.

Yea i guess you got a point about the tire wear. I got mine tire that were orginally around $190 but then i got a 10% discount then tire rebate for $25 a piece. So you might be able to get them that cheap.

yeah i have dick cepek's now. they are alright for the price. But I have heard from some friends I know that work at Les Schwab that sizes 33 and above are not made as well as the smaller one. I dont know why, but thats what they told me.
