About a week ago, I purchased a set of Traction King Plus all terrains. They are a fairly aggressive all terrain, decent lugs, with a good traction patch in the middle. 10 ply with what I have been told is a very high wear rating. I went with a 235/85R16, trying to maintain the idea of high pressure on the contact patch. I promptly decided to get some mud on the tires (shameless brad paisley punn) and they did fantastic. I didn't go mud bogging, because really, a stock ranger with 32 x 9.5's is not really a mud machine. But I went everywhere i normally go with absolute ease. They held on really well on the dirt road, with a little rally action and what not. On road they are not terribly loud, only a slight increase in road noise over my old Wrangler Silent Armour tires. One thing i did notice is that they are not over confident in corners. All though I am 90 % sure that this is to do with the tall and skinny profile of the tires. Oh, and these are also a snowflake rated tire. I am very happy with them and might report back in a couple months with some wear / snow ratings. Overall 9 out 10 for an all terrain.

HEY Do have any new pictures on how the tires are holding out ?? I just got Some aswell and there studded Not much siping on them so I sprayed them down with soapy water and made 3 , 1/8" deep cuts per lug on the 2 inner rows for even more ice traction. I hope I did the right thing and they are not to mushy I am going to use them as drive tires and I have 2 new bfg comercial traction going up front Cant wait for snow 235 85 16 . Please post more pix if you have them. btw 265 75 16s fit with a small tt and you can gain 1" with monroe max air rear shocks. :icon_welder: :icon_cheers:
