Well I jst couldnt leave well enough alone........ I went and cut up my rock lizzards last night. First off I should say that some of the tire combos I seen here look awsome. I would like to see a clip on how you guys take apart and create the monsters, some of this stuff is top notch:bowdown: I just took out some of the center lugs. 2.25g per tire for a total of 9g's overall (if anyones counting:drooler:)Hoping they will clean well and still paw the rock good. Going to my secret canyon right now just waiting on the sun up factor. Will let you guys now how they fair I think they should do well. Out here Im into the mud-sand thing with alot of rounder rock (big river rock) Along with good tires I stil need abit of wheelspeed ........... I will be kicking it up to a 20-30 tooth pinion after this run.

You rock for rippin em up, :rock:, BUT :picsorban:

Obviously, nothing in this sport is "well enough", either. Everything changes.

Well hope theres a pic here LOL Nothing compared to what you pull off but they really worked great IMO I spent alot of the time in the water so they stayed clean and really worked! Played in the dirt ant they cleaned well too. Im happy and of course there will be others.
Would someone be able to point me in the 40series direction or any tires in a larger diameter than5.5 inch?? Id like to get those 7 1/2 inch mudslingers but what other choices would I be able to look into? I'll change my pinion after I run the bigger tires.Thankshttp://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg127/Glenik/The%20BOLDER%20BUZZARD/DSC01766.jpghttp://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg127/Glenik/The%20BOLDER%20BUZZARD/DSC01762.jpg

Yea razor is all. Doesnt hold mud too much I figure it was well worth the effort. Wanna get taller tires and see how that goes. I wish i could put a tire together like some here. I will have to search for tire builds just always short on time

I think these tires work really well. I havnt gone through a ton of mud but they do clean well and still work well on the rocks. I spend more time under slippery conditions dealing with wood sandy gravely mud. For a rock tire these are a great all around IMO for my conditions. Glad I could be an inspiration of sorts. Are you using those in the rocks only or an all around?
