what makes them illegal. I have seen them on the overseas rigs, and they look amazing. How would they compare to the swamper radial.

I will post some pics soon. My cruiser came with these. It was imported from Africa. They are some mean looking tires and I have heard good things about them. It was soa when I bought it but I went back to sua and I'm running 33" tires.

I'm not 100% on this so please let me know, but just because something is not DOT approved does not make it illegal. For example beadlock rims.

It means, if you get pulled over by the DOT or whatever vehicle inspection agency, and they decide they need to search for a DOT stamp and cant find one, then you could have some fines to pay. Or maybe they deem your vehicle unsafe and tow it. How many DOT inspectors have you heard of checking for DOT ratings on tires. Its not going to be something they generally encounter as no dealer could get away with selling non DOT tires for long, so...

Sounds bad, but ive never seen or heard of this happening, I wouldnt hessitate to run them. Just because they dont have N.A. approval doesnt mean they will blow up as soon as you drive them.

The aussie's and kiwis ive talked to like them, but they dont get a ton of life on pavement, apparently they are a very good choice for the 4x4 comps down under though.

How much do they weigh each? Are they radial or Bias Ply? I think these would make a great set of wheeling tires...

$800 for the set?

Do you still have the tires, if so could you send me your location
so I can figure out when I would be able to drive your direction?
