Who has them on their Deuce and how do you like them?
Thanks, Pat
I have Firestone T831 tires. They are very similar to the G177 but have a more aggressive tread. When you put radials on a deuce you will most likely have to increase the caster angle in the front end. I like mine they ride well and don't wear much.

Love love love love love love love them!!!

Wear like iron and ride so much nicer. I got lucky and didn't have to change my caster angle at all. Keep the fronts rotated out and going on 12 years they are still great. Put about 10k on them.

All my trucks have them now, trailers will get rotated to them when the pile of NDTs I have wear out.

Are those the tires you got from me? I did not realize it has been 12 years since you and your father were up here.

They fill up with mud. Not really an off road tire unless you own a mine. Do you have a locking carrier?

Will chains fit?

Yes, this was the set I got from you all those years ago! The wife and I broke them down off the 5 ton rims and mounted them to the deuce rims. We lived in an apartment complex at the time. They weren't happy lol.
