    I had a set of 2 old new tires with lows miles on a former truck I had that were dry rotting on the tire wall cause I wasnt driving the truck enough. I started to see a brown ring on the outside tire wall. Those were Bf goodrich tires.

    I like the looks of the tread pattern. I need highway/offroad tires in one. $140.00 ea plus 20.78 ea shipping.

    What is studding?

    You wanna talk outdated, I seen Dave say something about 16.5 inch wheels. I'd run from those things. Not that they are bad, just getting very uncommon and of course that probably runs the prices up. Even 17 would be cheaper than 16.5 I bet. BB knows I am not a fan of General tires, but I have never experienced the TA 2 tires. So being fair, the TA 2 may very well be a great tire. All manufactuers make a great tire, and they all make a horrible tire too. Example, I hate the Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires in T spec that came from the factory on GM trucks, but if you bought Tiger Paws from the tire store that were not a T Spec, they were much better. Not saying they were GOOD tires, but better than the factory tires. Also have had great luck withe Uniroyal Long Touring tires on the Yota. I bought then on closeout clearance at Wally World for $50 each, when they wear an $80, 80,000 mile all season radial. They have 20K on them now and still looking like new. Balanced easy, not radial pull, wearing evenly, quiet, and smooth riding. I bougth them cuz they were cheap without having much expectation, but I am certainly impressed and will buy them again.

    16 inch is still common and not outdated. 16.5 I am thinking was all over with by mid 70's as far as OEM vehicles.
