How big are you talking? My brother ran 38.5" groundhawgs on his '79 F100. They were phenomonal tires for mud, those paddles could really sling it. Easily one of the loudest tires I've ever heard though going down the highway. Sound is near the level of boggers. He didn't drive it a whole lot on the street so I can't really answer that question. For a street mud tire I would run the toyo open country m/t's without question. Excellent off road manners and awesome road wear.

i used to run 44x18x15 on my old 83 and they wore fairly decent if i remember correctly i think i got like 30k out of them and they still had tread on the sides they will wear in the centers due to being a bias tire.

I ran them most recently on a 84 Toyota with a 454 in it and they were awesome!!!! I ran 38.5's as well and when I sold it they had about 30k on it and still enough tread to unearth baby trees..... Also ran them on a 59 F250 when I was 16 and those were equally as good.

Thanks guys, i have a reg cab 03 f-350 7.3 with a 10 inch lift and I want 40's, I have 40 TSL's right now and it was a bad mistake cuse they prolly wont last me 2 years and my next tire will be groundhawgs. I would love to have a good lokking tire with some lug that would last me 30,000 since i dont put to many miles on my truck a year. But now that you guys like them i can focus on them and i do not care if they are loud as long as they wear good since its my daily driver. Thank god I only have to drive 2 miles to work haha.
