I'm getting soooooo many conflicting stories.......... I know for a fact that a co-worker had them on a 1/2 ton chuby and only got 12kish out of them.....BUT he had 35x14.5 on a 15x8" rim and aired waaaay down. all of the tread was gone and one finally blew out. another co-worker has them (same size but appropriate wheels) on a wrangler and has over a year of daily driving and no noticable wear.

So if i would get 15x10 Mickey Thompson Classic II's with 4" of backspace and a set of 31x12.5x15 SSRs........rotated, aired them properly........how many miles could i realistically get out of them??????? some people say alot, some say none............

would i have any rubbing issues?

should i just eat it and stick with 31x10.50 mtrs????? they also make the ssr in 31x10.50 but don't figure they would last any longer than the wider size......just fit easier.........

sorry if this has been discussed before........

do you mean no more than 30k or more than 30k? If 35+k is what i'm looking at then they would be what i go for so long as they don't rub the flairs.... they are certainly a much better looking tire than mt, mtr or buckshots.......but the wear has me concerned.......

hey man,
if you're deadset on a mud tire in a 31x12.50 just get a BFG MT. However, I had a buddy w/ some 33x14.50 SSR's on 15x12's, and they wore excellent, they were on a 2 dr Tahoe. They're not gonna last as long as a BFG AT or anything, but they'll last about 30k or so. Hell, most Buckshots don't last that long! Go for it, and post some pics when your'e done! BTW, I've got 31x12.50 BFG AT's on 15x10 MT Classic 2's! Peace, Wes

do the 12.5s rub anywhere?? if so where? if they rub the fenderflairs there's no way i could run an ssr........they'd rip the flairs clean off.

several of the tacos at work (i work at a toyota motor plant) are running 265/75. is the only place that they are in danger of rubbing the pinch weld? if that's the case may just go with that size in a lesser tire and be happy..........well be happier than the stockers.......

thanks

figure around 20-25k on the average Tacoma. no way you'll get 35k. They have a much softer rubber compound than most other tires.

that's where I rub is the pinch weld. If I were you, I'd get a lil bit of lift, at least 2", cause most swampers run large. Anyways, good luck! Peace, Wes

My friend had some 33x12.50s on a Ranger and got 30k before getting rid of them. He could of easily gotten 35 out of them but at about 20 he ran into a ditch and knocked his alignment out pretty bad and it wore the inside of the tire really bad. He did roatate them every 3000 miles and kept an eye on his air pressure. These were the regular radial swampers though. Most people are not very detailed when it comes to tires and when they switch form a hard compound tire that they dont really maintain to a soft compund tire like that , they wear them out. It just takes a little maintenance. My next set will be Swampers. Maybe theyll work for me, mayber not. If they dont, i will learned my lesson. But they are just so damn cool lookin and awesome in mud.
