    I love mine. But I'm using them on a heavy truck, which needs a stiffer tread, so the results on something lighter may vary. I like them a whole lot more than Trenchers.

    They do look pretty identical to trenchers besides no sidewall tread

    @super, IMHO and a future reference, you should learn how to mount your own tires, it may be a little more time consuming but easy to do and a few advantages

    I taped them before mounting, so they balloon a lot less. The carcass feels similar to the Trencher, but the treads themselves feel firmer. I have to tape any SCT tire I run on my truck, as it's a Tekin T8 fed on 3S going to just the rear wheels. Untaped tire on the left, taped Lockup on the right.

    Yea that's 1 thing I like about mounting my own tires cause you know it's done right and you can tape em which makes a big difference, dang a t8, how do you like it in that truck?
