Now you need a little mod list and some details for the Reader's Rides thread :)

Looking good! Are those the Duratracs? They are pretty aggressive like the MT/R's. I'm on my 3rd set of MT/R's and have never had a flat or any other problems. IIRC the Duratrac's are made the same way as the MT/R's. Kevlar in tires is a great idea!

They are Wrangler Authority's... 31/10.50/15's. I'm not happy yet. I have one that is out of round and one that wobbles side to side... I know it's not my rims as my old tires rode smooth. I will take it back next week to see what they are going to do...

Where did you get the tires? Are they a store specific model? How much $ did they cost? They look just like the Duratracs.

I think I read on this site that those are a wal mart exclusive. Meanest tire I've ever seen at Wally world. Did you have to sign a waiver saying they aren't liable if you crash into a bus load of nuns on the way home because the computer says the tires won't fit an s10? I did with the yj. I told them if they rubbed, id go buy a sawzall, some blades, and a hammer. They stopped questioning me.... I actually told them if they didn't want to put them on, that I'd load them up and take them else where. Wal mart and auto zone are both terrible stores....

They are a Walmart exclusive tire... I had no problem getting them to install them. I get a discount at Walmart so it's hard to beet there price.
I got them with lifetime balance rotating and road hazard new valve stems out the door for just under 600.

Less than $600 is a great deal for 4 Goodyear off road tires! I paid about $800 for my 4 Goodyear MT/R's!

If you rotate them every 3k miles or every oil change you should get at least 40k miles out of them. I've managed 50k before, but they were almost slicks at that point!

These tires have incredible traction in mud and snow when aired down to 14 psi!

Well after going back five times for balancing I made them give money back...
I don't care how you try to balance a tire you can't balance an egg shaped tire.
I now have Nitto tires. They are round and have little weights on them. They ride sooo good.
I went with 265 70 16's. I put on the Trans Am rims my friend gave me.
Now I'm looking for a steering stabilizer because with the 1.25 spacers in the front I feel the bumps in the steering wheel. I run a lot of dirt roads that are like a wash board.
If you go slow it will take you all day to get where you want to go. If I run 40 to 50 mph it's smooth..lol

I like that look... When I finally get done chasing my tail on things breaking down, that's the look I'd like to get on mine.

I'm really starting to like the look of the GMC grill, headlights & hood better than the S10 version. It looks much cleaner and simpler to me. The GMC crew cab looks great in black!

Thanks Steve.. It took me a long time to find a black GMC... Then I removed all the chrome off it. I replaced the grille with a painted one so I could paint it black too....
