Too good to be true? (Nankang Mudstar tires)

I just read the post about the Nankang Mudstar tires being inexpensive, so I looked them up on Unsertire.com, and 33x12.50 is only $115, with free shipping!!! Does anyone else have them? Do you like them? Do they last?

Also, beware: 4wd.com website says free shipping on all orders over $198, so I was going to get bfg at today, went to checkout, still said free shipping, called and asked about shipping, NOT free on tires. They tricked me. I beotched them out. That is why I am looking at the nankangs.

Reviving the dead...

Anyone have any further input on longevity? Looking to purchase some new m/t's and the price can't be beat.

Well, while driving to school one day. I hit a curb pretty damn hard due to the reason that this lady doesnt know how to drive on narrow roads and cut me off. But anyways, Hit it pretty hard with the sidewall, nothing happened, so the sidewall is pretty firm. im rocking 5k miles on them. And i expect to get 40k atleast highway miles. But someone that is a little bit easier could definetly get higher milage. Im 17, how do you expect me to drive?

Thanks for the input!

Btw, don't thank me. I'm just a paper pusher in an office with no personal options in work clothes

I have a set of 31 mudstars ive had for almost a year and a half cons: they are a little lumpy on the road cause of manufacturing but knock on wood ive never had a flat a couple of nicks here and there and they do chunk a bit if doing logging road driving soft rubber compound and the side walls seem quite exposed when you air em down below 20psi they suck on ice. Pros hook up on eveything else but hard snow and ice clean out with minimal spin quiet on the road price seem to wear pretty good. Good for weekend wheeler that you drive daily. I will buy another set when these wear out!

What do you mean by lumpy? Out of round, or rough riding??
