    Today my buddy brian said he bought tires and he was going to go have them put on. I was like what are you doing with the old ones. he said trashing them. I said no i will give you $50 for them. So he said ok. They are 285-70-16 bfgoodrich all terrain k/o. They have about a years worth of tread on them. they are better then what I have. So for $50 I couldnt pass that up. I am gonna get them tomarrow on saturday. so I will get some pics tomarrow.

    Nice tires, I have the same ones on my truck. I don't plow or anything but so far they seem to do pretty decent in snow and they work real well in the mud, and for $50 you can't go wrong. Mine will need replacing shortly and it will be $1000+ for new!! OUCH!!
