    Just wondering about how you like them on and off road.

    I assume you are talking about the MT's.....I know a couple of people who have ran them and like them. But they have only wheeled MI trails, nothing hard. I don't know how well they would do in the UP or Canada mud, or how strong the sidewalls are. Plus the couple people I know who had them didn't complain about them, but also went to another tire the next time around.

    I know they just redesigned them a little, but its really hard to tell what they changed.

    I personally think Yokohamas, Kumhos, Toyo, etc should only go on foreign rigs like Toyotas, Nissan, etc. :P

    Still leaning toward the XTerrain...good road wear and good off road. Just gotta find a good price. Can't find a set of lightly used swampers anywhere either.

    As far as the tires in the ad not shipping until March 1st......could be a good reason why. Maybe he&#39;s running them on a DD and his new tires won&#39;t arrive until then? Dunno.....just a thought. Might not be a scam necessarily&#33;&#33;

    As far as the Geolanders go.....if you&#39;re talking about the MTs.....one of our former club members (Timberwolf&#39;s son) ran a set of 33 x 12.50s on his ranger. Ran &#39;em all the way down to the wear bars&#33;&#33;&#33;

    They did really well on just about everything he ran &#39;em on. Even made a trip or two to Canada on &#39;em. He drove &#39;em every day on the road too. He didn&#39;t get a lot of miles out of them....they wore pretty fast on the pavement, especially for a radial. MUCH faster than a comparable radial such as a BFG or a Goodyear MT/R.

    As Mike stated, they have changed the tire since he had his set. The changes aren&#39;t really noticeable....mostly a slight change to the tread and a compound change, so the tread wear might be slightly better now.

    Oh....and while our club member had them on his rig.....the Trolls affectionately referred to them as YO YO MAMMAS&#33;

    :haha:

    Oh....and one more thing.....

    If you want to check out the way they wore, the next time you&#39;re at Vic&#39;s...he still has them in the garage&#33;

    I resemmble that remark&#33;&#33; Well, I did. I remmeber the quote "Jap truck, Jap tires". I had Yokohama Muddiggers on my old &#39;Yota. Aweomse in mud but they were absolutely terrible in sand. They wore ok from what I remember. I had seen a set wear bad but that was caused by overiflation on a heavier truck.

    I recently found the newer Kumho Road Venture MTs. I am pretty sure about running these soon. They have a similar tread pattern to the Yoko MTs.

    BFG is owned by Michelin which is based out of France.

    We run the load range E Geolander all terrains on the back of several of our dually work trucks. They wear like steel, but I&#39;ve never had a traction problem with any of them.
