Just bought a set of 33's and have a few impressions. They are very very quiet on the highway. They balanced very easily, and look very nice. As far as treadwear i havent had them for more than a few hundred miles. Anyone heard anything positive or negative about these tires??? They are very cheap too at about 120$ a tire for 33's.

They look alot like the maxxis buckshot mudders...

found a pic of them. Looks very aggressive.



I like those. What did you pay for them? If I may ask.

I have been looking at these, locally for $80 each installed.

i got them with some 15x8 eagle wheels for 250$. They are very new and were only ran for like 500 miles before i got them. got them from a local member of another board.

I priced them here locally and they were only about 120 a tire for 33's.

Ill take a look at that review when i get home. Damn firewalls lol. They seem like a nice tire so far, and they arent very loud. Hopefully they will stay that way as they wear.

I can't speak for the compound that they use on the off-road tires, but I had some NS2s on a car and they wore extremely fast. The major pro is that they're cheap. I bought a set of wheels for the car from WheelsNext.com and got all 4 tires almost free with the deal they were running.

Yeah their tires arent very expensive. Hopefully they last for awhile. If they do good ill be buying another set when they wear out, which shouldnt be for awhile.
