Aside from the name, I can't imagine these selling well. But I guess if they put these out will they get rid of the crawlers?

Don't worry Phishboy I'm with ya. I think FF should go to AA.

im jsut curious as to how they will last compared to the crawlers... crawlers are such a soft rubber they the dont last very long from everything i have read... i havent seen any specs for this tire yet as for ratios or sizes out there... i know they are making them in a 15,16,17 rim

I imagine that they'll make it out of the same compound the current MT is made out of for tread life. That tire is gonna suck shit on the road IMHO

Krawlers only "suck" in the mud because they are compared to the other "extreme" tires like swampers. They will do as good or better than any normal MT in the mud.


Krawlers do get decent tread life. They have multiple compunds though and the competition ones that many people run do wear extremely fast. The Blue labels which are for street use aren't anywhere near as soft and will wear better.

I don't like BFG... but I HIGHLY doubt they are going to suck on the road.
