They're already running the Hammers and doing well. Available in most sizes already but the dealers I've spoken with are quite proud of them and asking for full retail...

Hammer X right? Try tirefactory.com if you can see a dealer with that tire. I think they are for hammers only (wild guess).

yeah I see what you mean. I think the long side lugs might be a little more open than the BFG. They look like they'd do pretty well in mud.

Here's a side-by-side:



New MT/R's next to my old BFG KM's (that I wish they still made).

interesting rear axle on that rig. I thought there was a pinion angle issue but the drain plug is at the bottom. what kind of housing is that?

also one side of the rig has to run the tires in one direction and the other side has to run them in the reverse direction. Or they can run them in the same tread direction but the allterrain area will be on the outside of the tire instead of the inside. Not so sure I like that.

Rotate the tires in your head; the AT stripe is always toward the inside. The first time I looked at them I assumed they were directional too --- they're not.
What makes it look weird is that it's not a mirror image from side to side; it's mirror and then reversed...
Takes some getting used to but I kinda like it.

For my needs I'm thinking more toward GY's other new product, the Duratrac.
