So i was looking over Treadwright.com for some new rear tires for my baja, but i didn't find any tread patterns that were calling to me, at least in the size i'm looking for.

My tire size: 31/10.50R15

I would like to keep the Diameter at 31" but i could go either way on the tread width, 9.50, 10.50, 12.50 i don't care.

MY QUESTION: Does anyone have any good tire websites, other than treadwright.com that may carry these tire sizes?

I may be interested in new front tires as well: 27/8.50R14

What tread design is calling to you? Hedrock just picked up some All-Terrains for his garage queen Razz They are good tires though.

Hey Daryll, check this out.
$80- treadwright.com/Tires-...T-P16.aspx
OR
$190- www.discounttire.com/d...mp;rf=true

SAME TIRES, SAME SIZE! i think i'm going to get these for the rear, what do you think? at first i thought they were more of an affroad tire, the tread looked too tall like it would bend on pavement, but looking at the other pictures of the same tire it looks like it would be a GREAT A/T tire.

Comments/Concers?

As for the front tires 27x8.5r14, that is what I run on the bus. You'll only have a couple choices. I opted for the General Grabbers. I like the tire.
A non-LT rated tire in that size is the 225/70r14. That comes in other brands, to include the Goodyear Wrangler, and Liberator. They're cheaper too, but I needed the LT for the bus.

Those would be good preston. As far as the fronts go, you are very limited if you go 27x8.50-14s and they are hard to find too.

The goodyears MT/R that treadright copied are a good tire, but if you need to drive in the rain much I would look at something else (they suck on wet pavement or rocks). Now the readright version might work well since its a different compund. Have you looked into the hankook dynapro MTs that Daryl can get? They are a good tire and priced pretty well.
