    Shit, I meant to type that in there. They clean really well. Even in sticky wet snow. I was very impressed.

    I couldn't pass them up. I got them for under a grand.

    Whenever I buy shit I research like hell.

    I needed new M/T tires ( 33"s ) so I started looking at what I wanted. Then started calling local to see who has what and how much. After getting lowest $$$ (Walmart for these) I called America's tire who will beat that price by 10%. Got these for around $923 out the door. I got these 35"s for that price so I went with 35"s.

    My last tires I got from Desert Rat. They were buy 3 get on free. I had them shipped to my work (business address) so shipping was free. So I ended up getting my old tires (33" PJ Dirt Grips) for around $900.

    Same here man! I love the look....small rims with big tires.

    I here it's because the idiots who started the trend of 37" tires with 30" rims or whatever (you get my point) made it popular so they started charging more for the "look".

    Just like low pro tires for cars. Same shit!

    yea i never understood that either but i guess they probably have to put more steel bands in the side wall since there is less side wall? more steel bands to strengthen a smaller area?
