New Shoes and First Impressions [pics]

I went with the Mud Kings 32x11.50x15 based on price ($119.00 per tire out the door ) and reviews. I like the tires alot. They ride so much better than my Goodyear A/TS THAT I had before and they are very quiet on the road. The tire shop had them aired up to much at 45psi so I put them right at 32psi.

If I was to order them again I would get the 33x12.50 x15 and still use my 7" rims because they do run narrow and small for there size. The true size after the install is 31 " tall and the tread measurement is 8" across. Maybe I should call the tire company and ask for the 33x12.50 . What do you think?




Now I have to install the 4.56 3rds I have sitting in the garage.

Those are some aggressive treads! You got a nice clean rig. I am not a fan of white lettering on tires, but with your white truck it looks good!

thats weird they measure 31"....my 31" BFG A/T I had on my Jeep measure 31 1/2"...I figured most tires measured up a little...the same went with the width...but I think the measurment was exactly 10.5 like they were supposed to be...

I would call and inquire if I were you since you are kinda stuck with that size until they wear out.....

Man, this is the first time I have ever seen those tires new! Most of the time I see them they are about 5 years old and have NO tread on them what so ever. They might as well be drag slicks. I never knew they were so aggressive. They remind me of swampers. Looks good!

I just went and measured and they're 8" not 8 and a half sorry bout that.

I'd like to get a set of cheap mt's next though just to see how I like mud terrains cause the tire I have now (bfg radial long trails) is the only tire I've put on the truck so far..
