new tires (sooner than expected) tomorrow

Well, Ive been wanting to get rid of these pirelli scorpions since i bought the truck, ( who puts street performance tires on an off- road FX4 anyway..lol) and plenty off tread left on them, so i was going to wait till the fall and get rid of them. Needless to say i was driving somewhere I hadn't ben 4x4'ing before and caught a peice of a broken metal stop sign pole sticking out of the ground. Tire was flat immediatly ( thank god for tire pressure sensor..not) so the truck's at the tire shop tonight waiting to get Hercules terra trac A/T 275/60/20 put on. should look a hell of a lot better with a little bit bigger tire and more aggressive tread. Haven't heard anything negative about these tires, so hopefully they work out o.k. anyone else have these on?

I know a few people running these tires on the back roads of SK, almost bought a set myself, until I heard that they arent very good in the mud. Aparently they grip real good otherwise, and dont hurt your milage at all.

yep, very happy with these tires so far, real quiet considering the amount of tread and agressiveness of them, havn't really hit much mud with them, other than the rainstorm we had last week and washed a couple laneways onto the highway by my house, the true test will come in winter..

Watch your sidewalls,the casings are crap and they tend to bulge.I havent managed to get more than 20k out of a set yet but they are on a medium duty truck not a pick up so it may be slightly differant.
