    Yeah...yeah I had another Brain Cramp on the BF Goodwrench spelling...already caught it from my son... LMAO

    I am looking into running a set of five BF Goodrich Krawlers for the ol 72' Gtunt.
    Size will be 35X13.50X15..... I know they are expensive, but I figured what the heck, have put away for these new treads for a long time and will go for it!
    Can anyone give some feedback on their performance? I have read the different magazine's feedback. but would prefer this Forum's Feedback for sure. Thanks alot in advance!

    They work great off road from what I've seen at Tellico and Windrock.
    Not sure I'd run them on the street though as they don't last real long on pavement.
    As you already said they are VERY $$$$$$

    I've been running them for 2 summers. They are great tires. Incredible sidewall protection. And they look bad to the bone. But, are they that much better than the Mud Terrains? I don't go anywhere now I couldn't go before with 33" MT's. 5 Krawlers mounted and balanced I paid a little over $1,800. Ssssssh! My wife thinks I found them alongside the road. I'm running the 35 x 13.50 x 15 They are the "Incredible Hulk" of tires. I figure by the time these tires wear out, I'll be too old to go wheelin anyway.

    Dude, the Krawlers are supposed to be pretty nice, but save some coin dude, seriously. Look at the Pitbull Rockers, SS IROKS, or the Maxxis Creepy Crawlers. I run the Pitbulls and have never looked back. They do freakin' awsome in every condition I've ever driven in, and they are what I'll continue to run. I've never heard anybody say a negative thing about them. The IROKs run just as good as the Krawlers, but are tons cheaper, but they only come in a 36" as the smallest. I run those on my truck, and love them just as much as my Pitbulls. I don't know how much the Maxxis Creepy Crawlers are, but all the crawler buggies are running them now, and the are awsome. I'm just saying, everone runs Krawlers, plus they cost a ton, so save some cash, plus be different, and get creative with a different tire choice. Good Luck.
