Pit Bull Rocker Tires Review

Posted in How To: Wheels Tires on January 1, 2013

We all use our 4x4s in different ways, but we often need a single truck tire that will work in a variety of ways. Some of you are into rockcrawling or mud bogging exclusively. Others like camping, hunting, and exploring and need a tire to take them wherever their front bumper leads them. We find that a well-rounded truck tire can do a lot of things. For example, the radial Pit Bull Rockers are great for loose terrain, mud, rocks, and hauling a heavy load, such as four guys Bigfoot hunting on a weekend trip in northern California.

In case you’ve been hiding from humans in a cave, we’ll catch you up to speed. Bigfoot is a wild hairy manlike creature known to stand 7-15 feet tall, with red eyes for seeing in the dark. He eats deer and beef jerky, lives in every state in the nation (but only in the most secluded parts), has big feet, and generally hides from humans. At least that is what people who believe in Bigfoot mostly agree on.

If you are looking for the perfect set of tires for Bigfoot hunting (and we assume most of you are), then might we suggest the Pit Bull radial Rocker? We outfitted our 1-ton truck with a set of 35/12.50R17 LT Rockers that measured every bit of 35 inches tall. For wheels we scrounged up a set of used Dodge Power Wagon 17-inchers—some of our favorite wheels with their forged aluminum strength, 8-on-61⁄2 bolt pattern, and made-in-the-USA quality.

We figured that if we could find and possibly photograph Bigfoot we could remove any doubt, sell the photos for millions of dollars, and spend the rest of our lives goofing off and going four-wheeling. Our plan was foolproof, so we rounded up some buddies, bolted on some new load range E Rockers, packed up the truck, and headed to the north woods.
