    The fire department here on the beach runs some Dick Cepek Kevlar tires. They look damn good, and they're functional for the terrain here in FL. I was wondering if anyone has run these tires and what the wear and tear life on them is.

    I asked the FD guys, but they run the HELL out of their trucks, so I figured I'd hit everyone up here....

    sand and snow, they rock. poor tread life, not the best sidewalls, not the greatest traction in other terrains. I'd love a set for winter tires, but wouldn't run them anywheres else.

    That's what I thought. The guys on the beach ONLY run them on the sand. They look good, nice and wide.

    Who knows. My best friends brother deals Mickey T's and he can hook me up. We'll see. I pissed him off when I went with the Swampers....hahaha.
