    It's in the same ballpark as many other large mud tires. Anyone that misses the days of GroundHawgs will buy them. The problem is they started with sizes that really only appeal to people that don't even know what a GroundHawg is.

    I'll be spending the cash on a set when I can save up enough pennies.

    The falken wildpeak MT is less than half price

    I got a chuckle reading the ad for the new ground hawg, “three years of extensive testing and design “

    It took three years to make an exact copy of another tire ?

    You’re right about the sizes

    Although it’s getting hard to find a 15” tire now

    And they do look good on vintage trucks

    I wish someone would make a quiet radial version of some vintage looking mud tires with just some plain sidewalls
    I don’t like all the flames and designs and crap on the sidewalls
    That’s for the mall crawlers with the 20 chrome rims

    Coker tire is missing some sales here I think

    I won't argue that there are much cheaper tires available, but not everybody always shops for tires based on price.

    It would be awesome if Coker was able to offer a selection of period correct off-road type tires, but there's probably not a strong enough market to make it worthwhile.
