Hey guys, I really need new tires on my 92 W150. Any reccomendations?
I still have the stock 15" rims. I was looking at a set of Mickeys, the Baja belted. Anyone have any comments?
I want a good off road tire, good in mud and snow, and of course decent highway miles. I've had Perrelli norseman's on my 99 Ram, they were pretty decent. Wanted something a little beefier.

Those durangos look pretty beefey. I think I might break down and get a set of Mickeys, I've always wanted to try them out.
The Bfg's are good tires too. I hear alot about those.

Mickey Thompsons are really good but kind of pricey. I have ALWAYS had really great results with my B.F. Goodrichs 33x12.5x15 my first set lasted 12 years and 80,000 miles! The only reason I replaced them was the sidewalls had developed cracks parallel to the tread on all four tires. I replaced them with the same tire. Check it out! BTW the Yokahamas are supposed to be pretty good according to petersons 4x4.

Nice!! I like the BFG's, I like how the tread goes down into the sidewall, that's the reason I wanted the Mickeys.
BTW, nice truck!!! I'll post some pics of mine as soon as I wash it.

I've had bad experiances with the BFG AT off road..consitantly got stuck...great ride on the road though, BFG MT i like, had em on my 94 before i sold it...little road noise, good tread wear for how ever long i had em on (10 000KM or so) and great off road, i know 35x12.5R15's from canadian tire were $250 a tire from when i was looking at stuffing them on, not sure how much a smaller tire is worth though.

Very cool pics pond traveler! You use those Dodges as God intended! Sounds like you have some serious plans for that 81. What kind of cuttin are you talkin about that truck looks like it is in pretty good shape. I too run the truck avenger 670 and rpm airgap. Makes almost as much power below 5000 rpm as the old Holley 750 on top the M.P. single plane that was on it,(original 380 crate motor), I think that rpm AirGap is the best D.P. manifold ever!

gonna cut the frame once its 4-linked right up until the shock mounts, and cut the fenders so i can fit 38's without putting the truck to high up.

Dude, great pics!! Sucks to hear you had a bad experience with the BFG's I was leaning toward those.

Hey pond traveler, have you heard anything about the BFG all terrain TA/KO?
They boast "better off-road performance".
Has anyone seen or used these?
