How soon do you need them? I have 4 of em sitting in the barn. 2 are about 65% tread, and the other 2 are not that great, maybe 35-40%. We have a Ram 1/2 ton that has 4 on it, and I got these others just for replacement, but really don't know if I'll ever use em, as the truck is hardly driven. So maybe I can help ya out. I'll see if dad has a use for them, and if not, we'll see what we can do, if you even want em at all.

I'd be interested in the two with 65% tread. My front tires (newer of the four) have maybe 20K miles on them. The rears are shot and need replacing. Long story, but when I wrecked and fishtailed, it wore two baldspots in two of my tires, hence the two newer tires. I don't need them right away, I still have plenty of tread left in the center, but on the edges they have seen better days. They were originally on the front of the truck, then the ball joints went bad, and you know how it goes. :wedgie

Yea I know exactly what you mean...Ball joints suck...I had 2 Cooper Discoverer A/T's go REAL BAD on a 300 mile trip because of ball joints...simply ate the entire inside of the tires. Well thats good to know. I am going home this weekend, and will ask dad if he wants the extra tires. If he does not, I may be coming out to MO in the next month or 2, and could meet up with ya and drop em off if that works.

Cause I can't afford $1300 for the 305/55/20s... but I do need two 16s. Plus, I'll be running the stocker wheels for the wintertime. I'd like to have four tires with good tread for the snow... not just two. :haha

Haha. Im thinking about doin that in my truck. I already plow in a bobcat but I can make more in a truck. If the lift isnt to high and the plow will work alright, I might just do it. But ofcourse it will be a bia to take the front bumper and winch and disconnect all the lights to be able to install the snowplow

I've got 2 about half tread left I think. Really you can have them real cheap if you want them from Houston.

I'll have to check if they are exactly that size, but they came off the 04 dually...
