^ he has a 3 inch body lift and t bar crank like me as well.

I have them and for a MT I love them. They do good offroad for not being a full crazy lug MT, and they have good onroad manners for a MT style and look really good. My tires hook like crazy, and do VERY well on the street in the rain. Thats honestly what I thought they would have the biggest problems with but ive yet to even hydroplane or have that feelings even one time, and thats running 75 in pouring down hard rain, not just alittle mist. Not saying thats the smartest thing to do, and granted my tires still have less than 10,000 miles on them but still. The seem to be wearing pretty good and if I was going to buy any new tire again, itd either be these or the BFG MT's. I got a great deal on these thru work and just couldnt pass it up. All 4 with unlimited balancing, rotations, lifetime road hazard, and shipping/installation out the door for like $748 so I honestly couldnt be happier. On to pics.

2006 Ford Ranger Supercab 4x4 XL. 4.0 5spd. To much to list-SOLD!

Ill be back

If I had to have a complaint with the tires, it is when tey get close to the wear bar, they go really fast. My rears were on the front w/ a bad alignment for almost 6 months (I wasnt driving it) and it chewed up the centers, rotated em to the back and have been fine since, but I noticed that they were about 1/4" above the wear bar, and in the last 3 months, they have worn down pretty fast. All that said, I do take em off road a good bit and beat on em pretty hard, but the fronts aren't wearing nearly as fast. I'll probably buy another set once these finally are worn out, but I'm not super happy with how they wore under the conditions they were in.
Still all in all 9.5/10

I should note that I have put about 20k on the tires since they were installed, and the ones that were spared the poor alignment abuse, still have a long road ahead of them (75% tread left anyway). The rears (the ones that were scrubbed to death) still have about 5/16th left on em and will probably be okay until winter.

I currently run them and do not like them, if your looking for a great off-road tire go with firestone destination m/t's the best all around tire I've ever mounted on any vehicle and the ranger is fixing to get some next week


The bfgs are to soft compound and will wear out very fast and they are loud as hell on the road
