    Those were the "in" tire here in the Northwest in the late eighties/early nineties. I wore out a few sets, not hard to do with a tire that might make it to 25k miles. Awesome in Oregon slop, terrible on the road.

    It's not just the tires. Just driving a Land Cruiser by itself will get you stuck in some crazy ways and places if you're not careful:grinpimp:
