yeah i know. i have first hand experience with 33x11.5 and 37x13.5 so i expect the 33x12.5 to be some where in the middle. I have straight pipes on my truck so i doubt i'll be able to hear them and i have subs in my truck that aren't always turned up but even at low volumes they will most likely over power the tires. Plus, lol, i don't mind hearing my tires

EDIT: heres a video if anyone is interested in what these things sound like

If you plan on driving your truck everyday with those tires, I highly suggest not getting them. Get something like the BFG KM2's. Much better for daily driving. I'm not saying that because of sound, I'm saying get the KM2's because the life of them is better. You'll wear those Mud Grapplers out FAST

thats really the only thing holding me back on these tires.. i'm still not 100% on them because of that reason. i don't really wheel my truck that much and its driven on the road i'd say 100 miles a week in the city only (no interstate).
The BFG KM2 is probably my second choice but i see them all the time. I like the unique factor that comes with the mud grappler. I know in some places everyone has mud grapplers but around here there is only 2 other people i know that have them. I see BFG KM2s driving around all the time :/

awesome off road, have a good howl and shorter life span than other mud terrains. Get the new MT/R's if you want to have a tire that few have and will last

Good tires, but the price is outrageous. There are a lot better options for mud tires, for a ranger. imho. I do like the wheels tho, just in a smaller size. I like having more sidewall.

18 is the smallest they come in.

Wrangler MT/R is a nice tire but i would get BFG KM2's before i got those

I've considered the Nitto Trail Grapplers but 1. i dont know how they would look on a ranger and 2. i dont know if they have the right size

What about the Hankook Mud Tires? i know Tre had them at one point. What do yall think about those tires? I like them because there unique and look nice but i have only seen them in a 35x12.5 so i'm not sure how they'd look on a smaller truck and a smaller size.

thanks for everyone's opinions

see thats the thing...i would make it awhile on 20,000 miles... its only gonna be 200 miles to my college and i'm a junior right now in highschool and i only drive on average 100 miles or less a week. I could make it all the way through college on those tires i bet...

if i had to guess i'd say they'll be the last set of tires i buy for this truck because i'll probably get something new before i ever need to replace them... thats why i'm thinking why not just get the mud grapplers...
