Ourbaby, thanks for your reply.

How loud do you think they are, and how long has he had them on?

I will ask him about the mileage for you, they were typical mud tires very quiet until after about 1/2 tread then got loud but not too bad. I have boggers on my big truck so you dont know load till you own a set of those.lol

Caution, I am not going to get these tires like I was planning because I've read too many reviews that stated the tires tend to blow side walls on heavier trucks.

These tires are not made for hauling heavy loads but I have not heard anything about regular trucks blowing them. I am a big fan of Super Swamper so I try to keep up with them. I have seen all kinds of trucks running these and some much heavier than ours running them, my bros truck is an extended cab Ram 1500 4x4 and he has had no probs with them.

The tires will be seeing pretty much highway driving, city driving. The tires will see some MUD and Sand, but not much. Little bit of towing here. If anything, nothing more than just 2 sea doos. oh, they will also be pulling the two sea doos out of the water from the beach..

Like so...

they will do fine for you, we were also suprised at how well they do in the sand for a swamper. He can stop in the sand I cant without using 4x4 to get moving again he always laughs at me until we hit the mud then he stands in awe as the mighty boggers go to work.:gunz: :jester:

I have PC lift on my big truck and love it. I went stage II. If I were to lift my titan I would use PC again. You have to really ask yourself "Self how much offroading am I going to do or am I going to do this more for looks?". I dont know a lot about the CST but from what I read its a performance lift (people really use this one a lot especially in the dunes and desert running). If its for the occasional off road with the looks primary I would save the money and upgrade the PC for looks.

Its going to be a show truck. A show truck that has cajones! i figure, since the PC will give around a 5.5" lift, I will only have to add a few things to get the full 6" I want.

I just want it to ride smooth, and look great!

Just need to do some research on them go to a 4x4 store and have a look ask to see the pics. If you have a f o u r w h e e l p a r t s store around you go ask them to show you the No Fear set up.

I've had these tires on for a few months now and I haven't had any problems with blowouts, although I haven't towed more than 4-5,000 lbs. And they actually ride pretty decent considering they're swampers.

Can you give more info? How loud are they? Do they get bumpy or vibrate a lot at low speeds?

The tires actually ride pretty decent, they aren't bumpy at low speeds or anything. They're not loud enough to the point where you can't comfortably carry on a conversation or anything, but there is a noticeable amount of tire noise when the radio's off at highway speeds. As far as wear goes I wouldn't expect to get much more than 30k miles out of the tires. Also, I was very impressed with the tires in sand and mud.

Ya gotta love the old school Fords!!! My F350 on 46s
Very nice IMO. O to have a straight axel up front... Mine would be soooo much higher. I went 38.5x15 boggers instead of the 42x13 Iroks but all I could get out of her without changing the front end out was 8inches and some fab work so about 10 or 11 inches total.:crying:
