    I can't speak for that particular Cepek tire but I had some Radial FC's for a VERY short time a while back. They were BALANCE_PROOF :mad: . 345/65/16 tires, one had MORE than 14 ounces on it. The vehicle shook violently above 30 mph. I took 'em back as fast as I could drive without breaking the vehicle.

    So, to read between the lines, I don't care for Cepek tires. They do "Look Good" though :rolleyes:

    Cepeks are awesome snow tires, and about useless anywheres else. Plan on replacing yearly due to wear. Plan on them not balancing easily, if at all.

    but, drop them to 2-3#, and you will be hard pressed to get stuck in sand or snow...
