Has anyone found a nice off-road tire for the stock steelies? I like the old-school look of the steelies, but I can't find but about one lame tire on all of tire rack that is a 13"er.

the 185-80-13 at sams club looks decent for mild offroad. you know, gravel, dirt, leaves and grass. it looks like it would do okay on snow, also.

goodyear marathon.

everyone has already gone over that subject/option, and over it and over it and over it.

atv tires are designed to carry about 200-300lbs each. at most.

even for a little brat, the tires need to carry closer to 700lbs, each.

pooparu used quad tires on his brat, and he says it works good. but he never uses them on the freeway. those are basically for trail only.
