Size Tested: 33x12.50x15

Cost:
between $120 and $200 each depending on size

Time of test: 6 months

Test Terrain: Ice, deep snow (1-2 feet or more,) mud up to 1' deep, pavement, rocks

Pros: For a radial these performed really well in the rocks and mud. I had open diffs at the time and I was able to idle my way through deep mud and they seem to grip pretty well in the rocks when you air down to about 20psi.

Cons: These suck in the snow and ice, to be perfectly honest. However, mine are not siped or studded. I think they would perform much better if siped. They are also fairly loud but any mud tire will be.

Final Opinion: I would buy these again. They perform great for most of the wheeling I do.

My Rating: 4/5

Had a set of the ext's. Decent tire at a decent price, although not a good hiway tire, a bit soft and fast wear, and what ever ya do...dont curb them. Sidewalls are a tad weak, still a good tire for a toy.

i almost bought a set of those. a guy had them on craigslist. 4 31x10.50r15s for $400. he only put 5k on them. said there was nothing wrong with them, just wanted a bigger set. the only reason i didnt buy them was because i would have had to drive to jersey to get them. would've been a 2-3 hr drive one way.
