I saw these things today on a 2500HD with a ?" RCD lift. WOW!! What an aggressive looking tire. This guy was running 315/75/16s and it looked great. I wish I hadn't jumped into the Big O XTs so quick, but there still probably less noisy.

Are you talking about the Good Year MT/R's or just the M/T's. The MT/R's are the newest tire from Good Year. It's a really good rock crawling tire bc it has a puncture resistent side wall, and it's a very aggressive tire.I was looking in my Jan '02 issue of Four Wheeler magazine and they tested the MT/R. The rating goes like this....one * being bad and five * being great

Mud ****
Rocks *****
Sand ****
Street ****

They are a all aroung good tire. They also said the handling on pavement is superior and the road noise, is quite low.

I run 35/12.50/15 GoodYear MT/R's on 15x8 Weld Racing wheels...and I LOVE em'!!! <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/bigthumbup.gif"> These tires are awesome all around...and for being such an agressive tire, they are considerably quiet on the pavement! I'll probably buy another set once the ones I have now wear down, but the 37" version. You can see a picture of my truck on my homepage: <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif">

Nice!! It was in fact the MT/Rs I saw. They look good on your truck. Will you do any height adjustments when going with the 37s? What about gears?

Im going to research the actual height of the 37's. The Skyjacker lift can accomodate up to a 36" tire, and the 37" MT/R are actually 36.something?, so they may fit without any height modifications. The gears I have now are factory 3.91, but if I go with 37's, I may have to go with 4.56 gears.

I guess it also depends on the wheels. I'm running 16" Eagles and I think there is a 37" tire(or two) that fits a 16" wheel.

I've got 4:10s on my Offroad and I have not noticed any power loss due to the 315/75/16s (34.7).

Hopefully by the time I'm ready for new rubber, more 16" options will be available.

Any rub with those 315s? They're my planned upgrade from the 315 BigO XTs. I have 16x8s, though. I should probably go out and measure those BigOs, so I know what I have right now.

How did you measure that 35.2? measure circumference and / by pi?

Thanks,
