If you're looking for an inexpensive tire check these out. http://www.onlinetires.com/products/...+108q+owl.html
I've been extremely impressed with my 315/75/16's. They have been better than the bfg a/t's they replaced in every way except for being a little more noisy. Just my .02.

I agree with them being loud and awful in rain.
but they were only bad in rain with my sway bars removed (on pavement).
holy shit they kick ass off road though. ALL terrains imo.
I would recommend these tires to a friend.

|1jeeplvr||My other choice is Kumho road venture MT tires,both china or japanese stuff|

I doubt it. They are what they are. Manufacturers of mostly low cost and mostly low quality disposable items.

Ive looked & havent seen anyone who has had a prob.Theres a few tires I was considering,good name brand but there also made in china or overseas so does a overseas tire automatically become no good because of that? Just wondering.
Example Kumho,China South Korea.
Nitto,well known off road tire,made in Japan.

|SEAICE||Would like to buy American when possible, but you never know anymore where tires are made. A few years ago, I knew Coopers were still U.S.-made, now not so sure. Even within brands, place of manufacture differs from tire to tire. They're all DOT approved, so I wouldn't worry about safety, but there are big performance difference among tires and I'd shy away from Chinese tires unless they're well-established, which Nankang actually are.|

Ride great with both rigs, and the IH is a 9000 gvwr pickup. No louder than MTR k's, and both have had them both.
They are not bad tires. What they are are benchmark MT's that are competitive.

My TJ had 32x11.5x15 Nankang Mudstars when I bought it.
Had no problem with them - only took them off because I wanted to run 33's (Didn't know Nankang made Mudstars in 33")
I then put the Nankang 32's on another 4wd where they continued their service.
Nankang seem to be a bit optimistic with the tape measure though - not sure how they are measured but I'm sure the Nankang 32's were a bit smaller than other 32's on the market.
Tires would start hummin, at 25mph on the dot.
And oddly, I found them to be very good in sand (beach/dunes).

So, yeah. It is what it is. Even 2007-up JK's have chicom rims from the factory and they are 750k strong.

don't skimp on: brakes, steering, tires
- This goes for anything of substance.

|Atthehop||If they are Chinese then I personally would stay away.|
