    @woody and I were there for that tire launch. It’s a well thought out tire but they skipped the 15-16” wheel market with it.

    Hi, I just wanted to pop in and say thanks for sharing my article here on ih8mud @White Stripe . Unfortunately, I have to agree with @wngrog in that they are missing a large part of the market, but they admitted they were going for the hardcore Ultra4/SRRS racer and big wheel, show-crawler crowd first. Hopefully they have received more demand for the 15- and 16-inch wheel crowd since my article and even the initial launch back in March. However, it's probably going to get harder for major tire manufacturers to look past anything with a 17-inch as that's no longer an upgrade on most new trucks and SUVs.

    Even so, I was rather impressed with it. I drove on a 40-inch version that was on a GenRight TJ with a five-speed, Atlas, and four-banger.

    I've typed long enough, so thanks again for the share here and I'll do my best to get more stuff like that.

    I liked them too. I went and got
    A set of the Geolandar MT2003 for my Land Cruiser in 235/85-16 and they are superb tires. Absolutely superb.

    Have to agree. The G003 are brilliant tires. I’ve put them on my Tacoma and 73 (LT265/75-16).

    If they do a media preview, I plan to be there.
