Sedona Rockabilly 32 x 15.  Awesome in the mud, so far.  Bad rep on the road, but so far ( one trip to the parts store) okay. But I only do 35 max!

Keep the updates coming on these tires. I have been looking at them and I am curious how they do off-road.

Looks good. Do you have to adjust the the steering stops so they don't rub in sharp turns?

I didn’t adjust the stops, but I added wheel spacers.

Whenever I see the word "Rockabilly", I think of the old Twilight Zone episode with Gary Crosby where he plays "Floyd Burney, the Rockabilly Boy!"  That word is permanently attached to that character in my mind.

The episode was called Come Wander With Me, in case anyone wants to know.
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

Are you going to Aurora show? If so are you going to try out those new shoes Thursday at Southington?

Any chance you can post the first 3 digits of the DOT on the sidewall? Or are they not DOT marked?

I suppose I can look myself later this week in Aurora.
