ok, i'm sure i'll find out this summer, maybe next weekend a little, how they are.  what tires would u recommend to be better offroad, but still ok to drive in the city.

i think they are pretty good tire, but i think you have to air down alot for them. also they are a directional tire. 
right now i have bajaclaw radials, they are good for everything it seems expect for ice.

ok, ya, i dont think any of those tires from tsl or bigger mud tires are any good on ice.  unless you go to a less aggressive tread, ....but who wants to do that?!!!

  a guy I bought some toy parts from had set of 35in X-terrains on his for runner and didn't like em much. They weren't bad but not exceptional performance either, said that he would not buy them again.

i have around 4,000 miles on a set of 37/13.5/17 SS M16

and i think they are a great tire. they are just as quite if not quiter then my old truxx's mt's, they are amazingly soft! i have only ran them down the 12 psi or so, and they hook up  great! the side walls are amazingly soft and flex very well for a 10 PLY side wall! :o. these tires are on my Dd/ww and i really like them. i have a couple a good wheeling trips on these tires and they have yet to disapoint me. imo they hook up way better then  my irok radials did. i am going to be taking a groover to these tires shortly i am just waiting for some free time to make up a pattern of some sort and groove them. :thumbs:

they hook up great all around, i have had them in the snow a couple of times with out airing down and they did okay... mind you i was open diffs front and rear attempting to blaze trail in three feet of washington's mushy ass wet heavy spring snow...i am heading to the dunes this weekend to try um in the sand  :driving:

Bogger? Hard rubber? :rofl: :rofl2: Good one!

A guy I know has some boggers on his 1st gen, and they have the softest, most flexible lugs I have ever touched.

I must have been thinking about another tire.  so they would wear fast on pavement then i assume

Yes, they are an aggressive tire with large voids and pretty soft rubber... they will wear fairly quickly on the street.

Yes, general rule of thumb, the more aggressive the tire, the faster it will wear out on the street.

depending on the material compound... these are radials and they are fairly aggressive and i expect them to last..  :driving:this is the best pic i have of the tires on my truck, i don't have a camera at the moment so this will have to do

Note I said GENERAL rule of thumb.  there will be exceptions, but the compound is directly related to its use.  A road tire is going to have a harder compound, because the tire doesn't have any need to flex or mold around stuff, and an offroad tire does.

in most cases that is correct... but damn these tires are soft! i mean really soft :beerchug:, these tires are softer then my bro's cut boggers  :gap: and softer then any other radial i have ever felt i can't wait to see how they hook up when i groove them.

Yes, general rule of thumb, the more aggressive the tire, the faster it will wear out on the street.

this is due to the fact that less lugs equals more PSI per square inch.... soooo if you have less lugs and more aggressive tread then you have more drag and more pressure on each lug... THEN if they are a softer tire like most (especially new) then they get eatin away on pavement much faster than an all terrain.... :beerchug:
