some people i know are saying that the street locks are kinda good cause the lip size is increased to keep the bead seated better than a regular tire, i dont know if this is true, i cannot picture what they are saying, maybe you guys can better explain that
get radials, either the SSRs or the TSL radials. what kind of wheeling do you do? i am assuming mud since you are from the south. i would go with the TSLs if you do mostly mud.
streetlocks? all those are are just fancy looking wheels, unless you're thinking of something different than me. they won't do anything that a regular steely won't do, and their looks don't fool anyone.:shrug
For just an everyday tire I'd say the SSR's...the tread pattern isn't as eggresive but enough so that it should still be a decent mud tire. Trust me Andy's right definitly go radial regardless...I meant to order radials when I bought mine I just forgot to say radial at the end of my order and ended up with regular TSL's, as a daily driver they are a nightmare!!!:banghead
the bead is on the inside of the wheel. how would having stuff on the outside of the wheel help the tire stay on. the only thing i would believe about them is that the lip of the wheel is marginally stronger because there is more metal there.
thats what i was thinking too, mtr's. My delaership's got 37's for 189.00 each. No shipping Plus my discount i'll get em for like 160. i've seen em in action, seem to do well all around and wear a lot more than swampers. then again i'm running at's so what do i know:shrug
Well if I'm to go with your poll I would say Il ike the plain tsl radials and they handle pretty well on road and last a decent amount of time. However since you didn't say how many miles you are looking to get out of your tires I would venture to say the good years would be a feasible suggestion if your not into real gumbo type mud.
I've heard rave revues about perneli jones (SP) if they made 'em big enough for my rig I'd buy a set. The guy I buy my tires from localy is runnin a set and he loves his! He said they ride as good if not better than BFG A/T's...now thats smooth!
I have 35" M/T's now but was looking to go to 38" tires as for gears I already have a 4:88 for my 9" just got to get ready for the 44. As for the street locks I heard that the were made thicker than alot of steel wheels. The ones I have now I bent the crap out of them and they can hardly be balanced I am tired of shaking when I get out of my truck.
MTR's...There is a thread on POR, I think it was in the toyota forum. Somebody had bought 37's for $160 each and somebody else posted another receipt for 35's for $140 each. I printed the receipts for the 35's and took it down to the local wally world. They matched the price and my tries should be here in a couple of days. Just in time to get my sh!t together and install the lift by the end of the weekend.:beer

In response to BikerPepe's comment :goodfinge on my lack of "randomness" in the Random pic thread, I figured I'd start this one to post some of the old Ford pics (not originals or mine) I've seemed to have accumulated over the years. Not sure how far this will go, but hey, at least I know @...
I've been looking for over two years for a manual transmission FSB that isn't completely banged up and rusted, and haven't found anything good in SoCal. Did all the manual transmission Broncos die in cash for clunkers or something?
