    Wheeled today with the 255's. The traction was really good, slipped a lot less than with the mud terrains. Aired down to about 20psi in the rear and they drove pretty well.

    They RUB :( It might just be the alignment which I can increase the caster but the way I think about it I might as well just do a cab mount chop just because... the wheels are not centered right in the middle of the wheel well so I think with some increased caster I can get them to work fine without rubbing. They do not rub at full lock only when the wheels are about 45 degrees.

    Speaking on his behalf, they've worn well..He's got about 90% tread left on them.....



















    They're sitting in his garage in a pile :laugh:

    Sitting in a garage? Is that why he has 90% tread left? Most unhelpful...

    Actually 95% tread left. I used thwm for a good 6 month I think with a bit of off-road on them. I'd guess I put 7-8k miles on them

    I loved them, did extremely well in the mud. I would have definetly kept them but with a wide ass front end they look/looked goofy

    Would you recommend a mud tire with 150,000 mile tread life?

    He put 7-8k on and has 95% left. That's a 150000 mile tire. It's okay, I don't blame him, I exaggerate too. :)
