Futura Dakota RVT tires, they are a good looking tire, and the price is right!

I had them a couple years ago. 33x 12.5r15's.

They were a great tire. Fairly quiet. Wore exceptionally well. Realy good road manners. Very inexpensive for a good AT tire.

I bought them for @ $89 mounted and balanced, put a bunch of miles on them and sold the set of 4 for $300 when I put the stockers back on to trade my truck for my first TJ.

They arent the most aggresive looking tire, but looks aint everything and they worked well for me.

My friend has them on his XJ and loves them. Not only are they decent with traction for an AT, but if you puncture one, your not going to spend a crap load to replace it. I've had BFG ATs which were great, but were I go, I ended up popping 3 of my 4 tires. Not all at once thank god, but I spent to much on that crap.

Wish I knew about volcanizing then

I tell everyone looking for a A/t tire to buy the dakota's. They ride and wear great. I have had two sets and no complaints. I wish they made them in a 35.

Hey now watch it... I work there.... I ran some 33 Dakotas on my fullsize bronco for almost 5 years before replacing them. They are some extremely good tires. Just some inside info, Pepboys is going to start carrying BGF, Goodyear, and Michellin tires soon. They have already stopped carrying the Enforcer MT. Im not sure what is gonna happen with the Dakota though. Oh Yeah I do work with a lot of morons but am not one of them.....

I've run those too, best all-terrain I've even used. Much better than the BFGs in mud, about the same as them in sand and on the highway. Before it gets hot down here I'm gonna have to buy some new 33s for my dodge and these will probably be the ones.
