Military Goodyear Wranglers??

looking to buy a set for the burb now that I have the 12 bolt H1 rims and was wounding if anybody has run them? The reason I'm thinking about running them is for there long wear and road manners, also can't really find another tire in the 16.5 range that is not super aggressive and will do good under a full size Daily Driven truck. Any thought's of this???

I hope your thinking about getting one of these two styles;



Because for DD road use, these ride and grip about as well as a bowling ball

There is a guy on pirate that sells those same tires for $75 each.

Edit: http://100dollarman.com/tires.html

This is the guy I was thinking of, but he has them listed for $80 and $100 on his site. I don't know if he was selling them cheaper on pirate or maybe I'm just retarded.

He probably sells them for that on his website/business, but gives a discount to pirate members.

AAA1 SURPLUS also sell 90% one's for $75. 4 of $300 & 40% one's for $100 of 4

I'm waiting for a quote from 406 YJ on pirate right now also. but has anybody used these tires? What I'm really trying to find out is how they wear/ride pretty much just a overall review.

I had a set of the chevron tread pattern ones in 35" on one of my jeeps many years ago. They were a good all around tire.

EDIT: Mine were radial.

The bias ply 36 inch MT 2s kinda suck in stock form and only measure out to about 34 inches. I had a set on my jimmy. Mud and snow they completely blew, But in sand and rocks they were actually kinda good as long as you aired them down to about 4psi.

For the last two runs I ran mine on, I cut the back two tires with my tire groover, seperating the big bands in the middle. That made a day/night difference, and they hooked up great. In an impromptu truck pull in my backyard they dug so well I did a 4 foot wheelie.

BTW, I've got 6 of these tires left, about 3 of them are decent. I'd take $100 for all six.

I've got the 37" Unicure pattern ones on my truck, for the price they are a pretty nice tire. They do pretty good for trail riding and in mud, kinda suck in snow though. My truck isn't often street driven so I didn't bother having them balanced but they still ride nice up to around 65 before they start shaking. Also mine measure out to about 36.5" on a 10" wide rim.
