Look like they are intended to be an aggressive looking street tyre I think. The side lugs get thicker towards the outsides. So more rubber on the outer edge will improve cornering and reduce wear on the edges. But that means the gaps have reverse taper so will lock the mud in to the tread instead of letting it get forced out the side. My 2c anyway.

Thanks for that, interesting observation about the edges and mud grooves, bit more meat on the edge might help the pootrol get round the corners. Ordered a set, will post a pic once they are on.


Also have the old 32x11.5x15 on trademe as a set of 4, three are 10mm tread, one is 4mm tread. $1 start
