Hey!
How would tractor tires work for a samurai? would they be as good/better than a swamper off road? I'm thinknig somewhere in the 29/12.5/15 range. Has anyone actually run them and what do you think??

Thanks

there was some 31/12.50s for sale on bc4bi4 a little while ack for $300. loked pretty sweet and they would probably do pretty good in the mud

How bouts for rocks? I dont' really do tons of mud so they wouldn't help me much there.

Thanks

take a look around, there wmight be some good ones for rocks, but the ones that i have seen are like paddles for mud.

ya, most tractor tires seem to do well in the mud (like a beefed up bogger) but on rocks and that not quite as well. i am wanting to go tractor tires one day, but none yet so nothing off hand :(

I know a guy that ran bobcat tires and he hated them.

A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says: "A beer please, and one for the road."

Tracktor tires have heavy sidewalls and would not flex under zuk. That would translate to suckage![2]

Tractor tires are usually bias ply, and not rated for anything more than 50kph...
