New tires

Before:





During:



After:






Cooper Mud Claw, wasn't looking for mud tires but they were less expensive then the BFG All Terrain I wanted to get since I liked them. Moved from a 32'' to a 35'' they rub a little but only when the wheels are FULL turn.

Thanks, we were walking in to order the BFG's and they were just putting this tire away, and the Manager asked if I liked them. They put one on to see how bad it would rub and then we bought them. We bought 3 got the 4th free so it was a nice deal. It does look better with a bigger tire.

I'll have to check exact size, I believe there is a leveling kit from before I bought it, planning on a 2'' - 4'' lift soon though. D load range, old tires were E but I never really tow or haul anything extremely heavy.

Never had problems on wet roads, until recently when the tread was so far worn down it didn't get any traction if you put the pedal to the floor. But didn't hydroplane at all going 70 in the lane that has deep ruts.
