ok here we go
9.5x16 traction field and road
6ply,9.5"wide,33"tall,1.25"tread depth,43lbs,[email protected]

12.4x16 traction field and road
4ply,12.4"wide,37.6"tall,1.42"tread depth,66lbs,[email protected]

18.4x16.1 traction field and road
18.4"wide,44.8"tall,1.57"tread depth,155lbs,[email protected]
8ply

13.5x16.1 power implement
6ply,15"wide,41.1"tall,.73"tread depth,82lbs,[email protected]

21.5Lx16.1 power implement
8ply,21.5"wide45.8"tall,1.02"tread depth,190lbs,[email protected]

as you can see power implement tires are very heavy and shallow tread depth, a bogger has the same tread depth as these with less weight and you can get the same lug spacing by cutting out the third and smallest tread bar.

Any other questions or info on other tires etc just add to post and i will grab any info i can. ;D

They all use low psi also compared to street tires

Can you get the weights on the bfg's and goodyears and interco and a few of the other popular tire companies.

Many of these implement tires can be had in radials as well. Unfortunately none of them are DOT street legal, and neither are Boggers if you cut them. For a strictly off road only tire, they can't be beat in the mud.

I would imagine the 18.4x16.1 Goodferayear would be about the same as the Firestone 18.4x16.1,the 44.6 is the overall height,as for availability i do just about everything but goodyear,wheels i deal mainly through Canadian Wheel or Rimex.And yes i co-manage a Kal Tire shop up in Dawson Creek B.C. so i can probably directly affect a deal for you being as you are also in Canada.

Imagine living in northern Canada no air care,work is 5 minutes away all the 4xing you desire is 10 minutes away and if you want to cut out your boggers and run them all year round you can,the only guys with 4xs that get pulled over up here are the ones that mickey mouse there rigs and go down the road with fenders flappin etc.If all your lights work and your overly loud exhaust isnt used in town and youve got some attempt at fender flares you get left alone.Wanna come for a visit?????? ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Do you have any pics of the these tires? I am looking for a good mud tire, but one that will also perform well in the rocks and something that I can lower psi to get a good foot print. So I don't really want a very stiff non flexible sidewall.

The traction field and road is primaraly used in the maintained field as a rear drive usually ply rating is low because all it does is drive doesnt usually pack much weight or encounter rocks and stumps and other hazards mud traction on the 4x4 pickup would be exellent as they are used lots for modified mud bogs etc.i dont think they would be even as good as a tsl in the rocks because of no side lug.The power implement is usually higher ply rated and also shock fortified because it packs weight and drives also.Still no sidelugs so rock traction wouldnt be that great.I will try to scan a couple of pics under my members ride section so you can see.Let me know if it works.

I have never lived in Northern Canada, only as far as 100mile area and Prince George.
I liked the winters but hated the mosquitos and horseflys in the summer.

So do Rimex and Cdn Wheel stock an 8 lug 16.1 ag rim that would bolt onto my 3/4 ton axles or is that a special order item?
they are both in Port Kells pretty much local to me

hope this helps a little,so far no luck on bfg,interco,dick cepek,mickey thompson,i looked on the internet and also all the books i have at work but no luck yet with weights.All the other guys like kumho,marshall,cooper,hankook should be fairley in line with the specs up above,so should bfg come to think of it,interco and dick cepek and mickey thompson are all in a league of their own. ;D

I'm not sure about the bolt pattern from ag to pick-up i dont think it will fit but i should have a 8 lug ag wheel in stk to measure up tomorrow.Also i dont think most ag wheels are designed to accomadate a caliper or drum.Wheel blanks can be had if a guy has to go that route though.What exactley are you after in this combo?height wise,width wise,application wise? :)

I currently run 11.00r16 XL Michelins
I used to run 38.5/16/16.5 TSLs
the truck is lifted high enough for a 44" tire easily
with the XLs it runs the highway real nice now with none of the hideous downsides I encountered over the years of running the TSLs
amazing what a round tire that is designed to be used will do for ride quality/comfort/niose/vibration/harshness
now I want to compliment the truck with a real offroad tire pretty much like bgreen from alaska is running
so 42-46" tall with extremely deep wide spaced lugs
I was looking at 20" rims and big XLs but they are rare and $$
with real AG tires they are just $$ not rare
Rimex and Cdn wheel only had very heavy 20" rim shells and didnt really seem interested in being helpful last I knew
If you have an 'in' or know of a helpful person at either establishment that would be cool to know about
if there was an ag rim that had a flat enough mounting surface to be redrilled that would be nice to know as well
I guess I could bug bgreen on his website about rims as well
