Those look awesome, I'd give them a shot. I think they're cheaper than treadwrights too.

Looks like a good tire for the price.

Do you drive it to the park or is it a trailer queen? I thought curbdog's use of SXS tires was a good idea. You could put diggers on back and hookers up front if you aren't doing street driving.

It's a trailer queen for the moment, but I've been using my brother's trailer (thanks jake) and I'm sure it's not going to be avalible for me to use forever.
So I plan on making it street legal and flat towing or driving it where I need to go. It isn't going any bigger than 31s so I'm not too concerned about breaking it and not making it home.

So I'm going to pick up a tub and frame in decent shape with title for 250 Sunday. Soon I'll have a non hacked together decent samurai that will be road legal. WOOT!

And a call to Haggertys for collectors insurance, because you only bring it out on nice days .

For most of Michigan anyway. Great tire for any low powered rig.
