now i gotta find a place that doesn't wanna rip me off for mounting and balance ..i just went to a place and they said 40 bucks a tire because my rims are special ? wtf the 12.50s should actually mount up easier on a 9 inch wide rim ...the tires i have now are stretched on my rim
I saw when you said you paid 150 for them. They look kinda bald in the pics what is the tread depth on them? New they were 21/32nds.

Yeah, I've seen new Mud Grapplers in person and these appear pretty bald. Pics can be deceiving, but these look 25% or less tread...

there probably more close to 40%

they will get me through the winter.. in the pictures they do look alot less than they actually are

but they are in much better condition than my tires now which are slicks on the sides and that is mostly why got these tires ..another reason is its extremely hard to find tires for 17s around me ...you either find 33s or 35s for 15,20,and 22inch rims

got the tires put on today ..and they sure do sing hah ..they also gave me better handling because there wider so i dont sway and have the wind blow me around witch is a BIG plus

they rub a good amount so im gonna have to cut and bend my pinch welds so i can make a full turn ..not too worried about flex right now just turning ...ill make room for flex when i get my new lift kit
