Anyone have these tires?
I'd never heard of them until just recently. Appears they were released about 5 years ago.
The few reviews I've found look favorable. Size I'm looking for, you can't touch most "good" brands of mud tires for less than about $400/tire.
Cooper Evolution MTs were cheap last year, got a set for the old Jeep and they look/drive awesome (but mostly sit in the shop holding the rims up off the floor, lol). But those have gone up about $50/tire and now more than these Nokians.
These Nokians are literally priced about the same as the China bomb brands.
Don't need em for a couple months yet until I get the old GMC finished and new rims, but considering picking them up now, before they do the same as the new Coopers I was eyeing up.
$270/ea free shipping for a 35-12.50-20 name brand mudder seems like a deal.

Look at Milestar Patagonia's and Mastercraft too. Have the Mastercraft MXT's on my truck now and love them. Had the Milestar's on my old Tundra and had really good luck with them too.

Those MXTs look like nice tires! Thanks for the suggestion.

The Patagonias look superior for a mud slinger, but that tread design screams (literally) on the hghway. Akin to an Interco Swamper tread.

I've asked this question though, as I've never even seen a set of these Nokians in use.

Michelin LTX M/S are great for towing also.

I currently have those on my Ram but did not get the mileage. Still have some tread but truck is getting new shoes next week. I would say not worth the extra $$. Plenty of other brands that can get that mileage for less.

Michelin LTX M/S Also don’t look anything like the tires the OP is asking about.

I love the Michelin LTX M/S tires for all driving! Great grip in rain, snow, dry while quiet and long lasting. But it looks very humble compared to every AT tire.

I'm a Nokian fan, have some WRG4s on my Subaru. The Rockproof looks cool and has great reviews too. I'd try them if in the market!

Thank you....
Yes to clarify for the crowd, I’m figuring out what I want to run on this truck once I get it painted and back together.

I’m planning on running a wheel setup that looks very similar to this. 20x9 or 20x11 steelies with OEM GMC hubcaps.

I have time to decide. Truck is currently in pieces still...

But I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on tires when I find a deal given the current state of .....everything...

I’m going as much for looks as functionality.
Truck will be mostly a pavement princess, after I get done with 100s of hours of prep and paint and drop 2 grand on fancy rims, it’s not getting bashed through the woods any time soon! but I want a classic “white letter” look and the obvious choice is just go BFGs at $400/tire. General grabber X3 red letters look awesome too at $400. Firestone MTs are one of the best tires I’ve run in recent years for quality and tire life and traction. Those are $300+ but can be had in white letter.
And the Cooper evolutions and now these Rockproofs which have red letters seem like a bargain and cool lookin.

The Bighorns that are on it look good but don’t come in 20” rims. Mickeys would look cool, but those are in the $400 range but don’t seem to have OWL tires in most models.
