Heads up on some tires

Just a note I have some tires listed in the classifieds if anyone is needing a used set at a great price. 315/70/17 Mickey Baja MTZ's.

I bought the Interco Vortracs again. 35/12.50/17 E rated. Kind of pricey but I figured why not. I got a guy coming to look at them Saturday afternoon. Gotta ride down to Macon Saturday morning to pick up a trailer and then haul but back to get the tires put on and then get to the house and keep cleaning/painting/preparing for the realtor. Im also ordering gauges soon so will need a wrench day when they come in.

Yeah they are true 10ply E rated. I think they are rated at 3600 lbs a tire. Paid way too much for them but, in that size you arent going find them much cheaper. They balanced out ok but took like 7 oz each! As long as they dont go out of round Im good. I got the full replacement warranty and had to pay shipping so thats why it cost so much. Nobody in town had them in stock. I can tell you one thing, the ride is much better than the MTZ's as far as noise.
