Icon5 Wildcat EXT Radial LT's

They any good?? they look awesome, and how are they on road?? loud noise? Do they last a long time (tread life)?, they are SO cheap, only 120 bucks for 33's per tire.. any information would be great.

There really loud on the road... off road iv been stuck twice but it wouldnt have mattered what tires i had on, they seem to really grip the mud. I never pushed it but i never got stuck in the sand either.

i have the Wildcat ATs and I definietly was not impressed with the offroad performance... They sunk in sand even when they were aired down.

They wear fine and there's a wee bit of a noise while cornering hard, but not much at all during normal driving speeds... upwards of 70 they get a little noisy, but the whole truck is shaking and the interior is noisy anyhow.

I like mine, now that I don't drive offroad with them anymore, besides the fact that my driveway has 1.5ft. tall terraces (which are quite fun, btw) I've got 30k miles on them and still have at least another 20k to go.

BUT! I tell you save up and get something really nice like an MTR or BFG MT or even a Procomp MT or Cooper STT because they're siped!

Oh, and my 31x1050s measure 29"-29.25" at normal street-tire pressures... that's another reason why you don't pruchase cheapo tires, IMHO.

You wont find anything for the price of the EXT's and i dont mind them. I do more off roading so my next tires will be more agressive but iv taken these out and havent spun a tire while pulling a jeep out. Ill run these till there dead but ill go w/ the cooper stt's next time but there about $200 a tire

and once you have the tires shipped you have to pay to have them mounted and ballanced so figure that into the total cost. Its usually cheper to buy them localy
