THESE TIRES SUCK!!!!

THESE TIRES SUCK if you want to do donuts in the snow. They get WAYYYY TOOO MUCH traction... If you want a truck that you can't get stuck in you should buy these tires. Haha, Ive had these tires for about a month now and today we got about 8 inches of snow and I cant get this thing stuck in two-wheel drive hardly. These tires just have awesome grip. I went out and tried donuts in an empty parking lot, and the tires have too much grip to allow me to do donuts.... I definitely think you cant get a tire half as good as these for twice the price....

That's the truth. I was out playing in the snow today. Posted about it here:

Absolutely fantastic in the snow.

Was in walmart today and looked at these, some beastly looking tires. Definitely at the top of my list when I get new tires this year. And the price on them is nice for the wallet haha.

Will these fit on a stock suspension? I am looking for anything to replace the fails on my 13 off-road edition and for the price these would seem to do quite well. Especially since they look good on a lifted setup. I am in the process of saving for a OME lift but in the meantime if I can get a new set of shoes before that I would jump on them in a minute.

Thanks

Depends on what size you're wanting to fit on your stock suspension..

I have 265/75's on mine.

I was thinking the same size, figured it would be a nice size for when i do the the OME installed. I am thinking they wouldn't look to small like the stock BFG Fails will plus they are a good tire to boot.

HOLY COW this thread got big since I last posted, I will get pics tomorrow, but for now, I have question.

has anybody else noticed any weird wear on their front tires?

a couple overloaded welding trucks im friends with I noticed that the fronts had a crazy, alternating-lug wear-pattern and I thought, well, they're just not taking care of their trucks.

well, I noticed it on mine a couple weeks ago so I had them rotated. the rears wear perfectly square, but the fronts are seriously: high-lug, low-lug, high-lug, low-lug and so on.

I cant figure it out, any ideas?

Alignment problems maybe? Mine are wearing well, except for the edges of the fronts wearing faster due to not being able to get a good alignment from the lift I previously had. Haven't noticed any weird wear like that though. i've got around 40k miles mine and they are almost to the point where the I can see that the sipes won't last much longer. I'll have to check for weird wear like that.
