My Mazda was built in Detroit in the same factory.
I custom ordered my Jeep Wrangler from the factory, which is in Toledo, Ohio.
The fancy imports may be faster, but I'm pretty sure I'll win if I get to pick the track
Against my pony? I think not. And if its off road I got something for ya too.
Oh no erocker, you've gone and imasculated the image of Mustangs! Quick, delete the post!!
What do you own for off-road MM?
Mustangs are one of the greatest cars ever. Don't you forget it. I got my Mazda 6 because I wanted a 4-door with stick plus I got a great deal on it. I plan on getting a Boss Mustang in the next couple years. I have to finish my project truck (Ford Lightning) and sell it. I'm also in the middle of restoring my 1982 Mercedes 300CD so I have a nice fuel efficient car.
1978 CJ5 with 900-16's on it.
your swamp buggy wont last 5 minutes in this northern clay
If it can take on Everglades mud, ocean sand and Georgia clay it can take on anything. Those are 900-16's son.
@MM : Bring it on !! lol
Let's take a little trip to Minnesota. Nice place called Iron Range Off-Road Park
We'll have a blast.
What's you're spread MM, you may have trouble up here cornering between trees.
Nevermind ... saw your link. Not a real wide tire.
Man I wish. I miss my Everglades. See the thing about it is in the glades power is usless. Its all about weight distrabution, staying light and keeping it moving. Big SUVs and trucks die quick. I pulled more then a few out in my lil jeep.
Heres an idea of "light" mud in the glades. Ill find more pics so you can see.
Heres an old trail I used to run. Keep in mind these dumbasses are out there in wet season.
I killed an 8 footer out there with a .45 one day lol
Heres a run on the "Gator Trail".
Yeah, we have lots of mud here too
Here's my new tires. Not 35's, but at 34.2" on 17" rims they are respectable.
(Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar TL255/75R17)
Have you taken them out yet? That tred looks to tight to me. How do they do?
If you ever can lift her a lil. Not much and get some 900-16. Seriously there is a reason the used that tire in the US Army in three wars. I had no idea how bad ass they were until I got a set.
Which model? I would love to have a Boss Mustang, love that car. The closest thing I have is a 1:43 scale model of a Blue '70 Boss Mustang 302.
There were a few of those here still running until a couple of years. Now, many must be rusting up in some garages, or scrap-yards.
I fail to see what that has to do with AMERICA, son.
Mines an 08 GT. I pull 11 But now Kreij has me wanting the outdoors! BAH!
No. Just got them on last Friday.
Center tread it tighter for lower road noise and better wear.
Outer tread (hard to see in pic) gap is a good 1+ inch for mud cleaning.
Have sidewall tread (also can't see in pic) for rock climbing, especially to cling to rock edges.
I'll get a better pic. The've gotten really good reviews and the people who have them in the Jeep club love them.
Plus the kevlar banding makes them a lot more puncture resistant.
The new Mustang is a very beautiful car too. Although I tend to overlook the GT version and jump to the souped-up versions.
I bet your Mustang would be a good car to take some corners on the dirt.
Here's a quick pic MM. That's a good 'ol US quarter laying at the bottom of the tread gap.
Sorry it's a little blurry, but you can see the sidewall tread too.
Any fool can drive on a road ... just sayin'
That's where I'm from!
I'm driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee though I dunno where it was made other than the U.S. of A.
The bench mark track is the Nurburgring for the most part and the good ol US of A makes he fastest Sedan, and the Fastest Street car. Whoever said American cars can't hit the corners has been proven wrong, and both of those cars run pushrod motors, who needs hightech wizardry of DOHC, classic muscle as gotten the job done and holds the records.
Those are what I am looking to pick up for my 91 Silverado, been shopping for a good price, will be getting 35x12.50x15's. They got killer reviews for on road mud tires.
The MT/R's are about as good as it gets for a mud tire that is meant for road purposes.
Cars, schmars, real men ride bikes, preferably with a Japanese engine and American design:
I never said they can't get the job done, I just don't like the style of the American cars. I do have to give them this; working on american cars is usually really easy compared to others. i.e german cars.
French cars are worse!German cars seem to not follow logic with placement of parts or types of fittings,but french and italian
I'm sure they have less road noise but for an off road vehicles that shouldn't be a concern.
I went through ALL KINDS of tires. One day my old man said F$#K IT and bought a set of 900-16's as he had a lot of experiance with them in Nam. We never looked back. The tred of them things don't hold mud so there is zero chance of compacting. Just look at the gap on the style tred.....
90% of German cars are garbage and far less reliable then American cars.
