Another Tire story


having 4 off road trucks needing tires costly. So even that Im a china parts hater. I got 4 mud tires 35/12.50/15 about 185.00 and 5 bucks to mount and bal. This pre runner only sees few miles pavement a week . 90% off road tested work great on road loud like a fire truck. Will try to post picture and name of brand. When I got my pre runner 12 years ago it had new mud tires china man tires. Sure did not last long as I may only have 5,000 miles on them. Surly less then 10,000 miles. Of course truck is spinning and power sliding whole time. I got them in Ensenada.

China stuff isn't too bad I buy stuff from Harbor Freight all the time. However it will be interesting to see how well the tires hold up.

Antares? Antara? I can read the "Deep Digger" model name, not the brand.

What brand tire?

Aggressive looking tires for sure. Thanks for the review! Hope you continue to see good service from these tires.

John

That's a good looking tire and for that price you don't need many miles to get your money back! Hope to catch up for a ride with you next year!

HAAA John Ok Antares Mud tire Max Load 2535 at 36psi . Ensenada Store Econollantas tel 646 172 4075. Again tire size 35/12.50/15. Will get some action shots of dust maker pre runner. As a side note on my other truck the new bfgs mud tires very short life. The old bfgs Alt lasted 50000 miles still good . So far at 20 psi today good run I will lower to 18 psi maybe try 15. On this pre runner they used the 4x4 frame and front hubs. Sad to say they remove the 4x4 for long travel. This ride not rock crawler . Any deep sand or hill climb speed is your friend. It does have a Locking diff 80% dirt with 5.40 diff gears manual 5 sp.

DK, thanks for the link for tires. The Anteres mud terrain that B.T.R. bought was offered for $160 or so in my size. The also have an Achilles mud terrain for a heck of a lot less.

Anybody know anything about these? https://simpletire.com/achilles-30-9.50r15lt-mao309515-tires
