Ah yes nothing says BA like a New set of GoodYear MT/R's...$1000.00 well spent in my opinion!

I just ordered BFG all terrains as my "street tires" and picked up some SVX rims from the UK. Cost me my left nut.

Well heres a funny (or not so..) story about the wear (on my old MT/R's)...I picked up this truck in Co. and drove it to Va., as soon as I jumped on the freeway about 15' from the on ramp two praire rats were running across the freeway! thought I missed them...four days and 1800 miles later in my drive way I was pickin meat chunks out from under the truck!!

I know the previous owner did some rock crawling with the old MT/R's and they have slightly redesigned them so they should chew rock and road (kill) just fine...

Dead Right! the PO mounted his CO plate like that...its a Great idea...I always worry about someone taking off with it, especially since I have a bumper smart tag on it. Good thing I can throw it in the 90 pretty easy!!
