    Tire help

    Otay, called around, and finding the Trxus I wanted is not possible. Seems they are outa stock for a while. Tyres1 has a long list of back-orders for em

    Need suggestions for a semi-street friendly mud terrain tire that will also be good for the likes of Barkamp and Tar Hollow.

    Mastercraft M/t's are similiar to the bf goodrich m/t's only at a lower cost.

    I ran 31's on my cherokee for a year and loved them(before I started running the current samurai).

    I was locked front and rear and ran Tar Hollow/Furnace/Quarry.

    I usually took two or 3 tugs on Quarry cause I couldn't resist some of the tougher lines, but I was quick about hooking up the strap and to my knowledge no one complained about me holding up any rides.

    Run some 33's on it and you will be good to go to do most of the rides as long as you take bypasses on the tougher stuff.

    Here's another suggestion.

    Buy some retread mud terrains and run your street tires for dd duty and bolt the mud terrains up the night before a ride.

    I think the 33's are around $375 shipped to your door. I ran them on the samurai before the tsl's and they are usually off of the bfg carcass with smiliar tread to the bfg mud terrain.

    Just a thought if you are not wanting to get real wild, but yet go play periodically.

    Those would do it.

    SS Radials would be perfect for you, Pete. Borrow the club groover/siper, sipe 'em up good, and you are SET!

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    I can get ya a set of 31 10.50 15 Dunlop Mud Rovers for $118 a piece. add 9 bucks to that if ya want em installed, balanced, new valve stems, road hazard and free flat repair/rotation for the life of the tire. (yeah I work at a tire shop...lol) Unlike the trxus they are easily balanced. On something light (tj?)you can figure around 40k of life on the mud rovers.

    Retreads are best bang for the buck though imho.
