I always search for these on ebay, internet, etc. and this popped up yesterday.

$280 per tire though?

Height "should" be 7.5+16+7.5 = 32"

Width "should" be 7.5"

Note any more ..

Had them and now I dont and like my BFG MTs alot better. My rover came with a brand new set from the UK and I did not like the narrowness of the tire nore the look of them. Not the best regarding handling and the fact that they are hard to come by, that made the obsolete for me.

They melted away within last summer.

My 0.02 $

Yes but they are truly near indestructable.

For that they can take alot of punisment. Specialy rocks, I was suprised how well they resisted sidewall attacks from very very sharp rocks.

But I would not buy.

But hey that's me.

I run the 8.25's and they sure can take a beating, but really don't shine outside of that.

I think I'll go back to BFG M/T's after these. At $250/tire it really isn't worth it for what I use my Defender for.
