MChapin,
What did you decide on your tires? With it starting to warm up and event season starting, I'm looking at putting tires on the truck again.

Joel,
You seem to be quite knowledgeable, which NDT tire do you reccomend?

Buy the STA Brand 7.50X20 NDT
My SWB has them new + 3 New STA Spares, do not try to mix them with leftover new Denmans as Denman was way undersize compared to original GI Issue brands of NDT 7.50X20 tires.

900x20 are cheap, make better road speed, mount fine on stock rims and don't rub anything, and better off road, But aren't authentic. I'm happy with them.
