Soft 8's and Hercules Trail Digger MTs

33x12.50x15 Hercules Trail Digger MTs mounted on 15x8 (3.75 BS) Summit Racing Soft 8's



Two of the tire/wheel combos didn't require ANY weight to balance, the other two took 3 oz each. Not too shabby. I've read many good reviews about these tires, otherwise I was planning on going with the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs.

They aren't as loud as you would imagine a full MT to be on the highway, just as many of the reviews stated. And their road manners are just amazing. I haven't had a chance to get them offroad yet, (this pic is roughly an hour old) but the reviews I've read about them say they're amazing offroad. I'll update this thread when I get a chance to test them in the rocks/mud/etc.

I have Hercules tires on my Cherokee and have been very happy with them. Interested in your thoughts after you have had yours awhile.

Absolutely. I'll be sure to update this thread as time goes on and I get a better idea of how they're working.

I would have liked to see your new tires on your old rims.
