after driving myself, and my wife nuts the last couple weeks looking for tires i have settled on one. Sam's club is running a rebate on Goodyear tires so i am going with the Wrangler MT/R with kevlar in a 35x12.5-15. all four mounted, valve stems, tax, etc. out the door for $975.
i was going with the BFG mud terrain up to this point but have read great reviews on both tires so i figured i might as well go with the best deal right now.
i also found a set (4) of Crager soft 8 (15x10) wheels on CL for $100.two of the wheels had gumbo monster mudders with a little tread left so i picked them up and gave the wheels a cleaning and some new paint. then found a single soft 8 wheel on CL for a spare. I will keep one of the gumbo's mounted for a spare and use the other four for the Goodyear's.
merry Christmas & happy new year to me!!
