Good pics. I love off road carnage. Need a few more dents tho...
Looks like an Ok tire for road and mild offroading. I would still be careful offroad. Look at the terrain/ obstacle and learn to pick the best line avoiding sharp rocks.
When I think off road tires Its more like mine which I consider a minimum for my needs for a off road tire. Pro Comp 12.50 x33 x 15, 3 ply sidewalls. I would go bigger 12.50 35s but. I need to do some more work with my sawzall and hammer to make them fit. I don't want to lift my truck higher than it is.
I would consider dumping the running boards if you want to off road. The little rock kiss in the bottom of my driver door ( have a matching one on the right side too.) would have taken out a running board and got me hung up.

Yeah I know the Chinese is a gamble buuut I needed the truck now and don't have much cash right now. I payed 1100 bucks for the bfg and they wore crazy fast. Since I destroyed them, getting out of the park not gonna get the warranty prorated price to replace them. As for choosing the line couldn't see the rock formations in the water. FJ cruiser went in ahead of us way too fast and tore up the trail dragging more rocks into our line. He thrashed his entire truck. We were already in the creak an truck behind us was stuck so had to go forward. Probly would have been able to make it through if I had remembered to air down the tires buuut I didn't so they both had 50psi in them.

Whatever works. Id be more inclined to go with treadwrights if you are off roading and worried about wear, only time I've seen them fail is with age. You use your tires hard, they are going to wear quick. Might want a set of BFG Commercial T/A or Transforce ATs for the long tows.

Well two years later I love those cheap *** tires. Correction for the name big o sells them they are called "ling long" at tires..... My buddy works at a tire shop and said that he would never buy a Chinese tire but they are the only acceptable Chinese tire anyone could get. I know nothing about it but they have 60,000 miles on them now and still look great and they have towed a bunch of weight and been through some knarly off road spots aired down to 15psi. They are 10 ply e range 3 ply side wall.......


Here is a. Qoute from their site about us thing

About Us. Linglong Americas, Inc. is a subsidiary of Shandong Linglong Tire Co., Ltd., a Top 20 global tire manufacturer with headquarters in Zhaoyuan City in the Shandong Province of China. In addition, the company is among the Top 3 tire manufacturers based in China with global sales of over $1.5 billion in 2016.
