Not another Tire thread!!

Okay actually it is... but this one is slightly different. I don't want to know what tire size will fit with what lift..hehe. I'm just looking for opinions I'm shopping for new tires for my ride and I was looking at these Green Diamond Tire and I was wondering if anyone has run them or seen them first hand?

I haven't seen them, but I worked with guys long ago that claimed the best snow tires had walnut shells moulded into the rubber, same concept. Let us know how you like them.

Yea I"m Cali, but I'm not looking into them for the recycle value. I'm interested in them for the traction value. They are claiming more grip when going over rocks, was wondering if it's true, plus what the tread life is like. I'm coming off 55k on a set of MTRs. I know I won't match that but close would be nice.

They really have walnut shells in them? I bet they would work great on ice and snow. Kinda like the Maxxis Mudders have the threaded lugs to put spikes in for ice.

From what I've heard these are daily driver tires, street only, and a really hard compound that doesn't let the tires flex and conform very well. The added road traction will not translate to off road traction.

That makes sense.

By the way, I've been through Payson! It's a beautiful town! (Or city if that's what you guys prefer).

I'm not sure. That would make sence on there street tire. But from the review from Green Diamond Icelander MT Tire Review I''m thinking their MT has a different compound.

Not sure where the link is but I saw the video of the Offroader.com guys doing the test. If I find it I"ll throw it up here.

Retreads? Good luck with that. I wouldn't run them on a street driven vehicle.

Update

I got my tires from Treadwright https://www.treadwright.com/shopnow/...-dog-mt-d.aspx they balanced with no problems at all, one tire didn't even need any weights. (I had them balance with weights just to check) removed the weights and put in the dyna beads (8oz) each tire. Tire Balancing Products Its like driving on glass I've had it up to 80mph with no wobble, shimmy or anything. I have just over 1000 miles on them so far with no issues.

As far as off roading I was a part of the Last Chance Canyon / Burro Schmidt Tunnel run Last Chance Canyon / Burro Schmidt Tunnel - Saturday 10/9 and I had no issues at all. The tires held up great no cuts or chunks missing, trackion was great. Trackion on the road is great also, they stick like glue (so far).. even in places where I would spin out with my Goodyear MT/Rs.

I will update again if I have any issues come up or when I get a few more thousand miles on them.

Nice to see another happy customer from Treadwright, I will be looking into them the next time I need tires. To many good reports not to.
