Re: [MV] Road Rubber substitute for the 9.00x16

Go look at my tire pages. In particular, look at the page with the photos of
various tires that folks have mounted to the stock rims on M37 series and
civilian Power Wagons. I am running Michelin 900r16XZL on my regular driver
and had a set of 900x16 Co-Op Grip Spurs (very similar to the older tread
pattern Power King Super Traction) before I swapped then on a whim. A lot of
folks have been using a STA super lug as well. Along with photos, I have
some information concerning dealers, manufacturers and ride quality.

Tire photo page is located at The
main site with links to general discussion about tires that fit the stock M37
rim, tech page on the rims, and information concerning the Michelin/MVPA tire
deal is accessed through:

Good luck,
