    You are correct and the radial pull is an issue but more so once they start to wear a bit. I think while they are new they will be a good data point.

    I'd say it has more to do with tread pattern and/or wear pattern. I know it may not be the same comparison but we recently changed the front tires on our fire engine from an aggressive cupped tire to a less aggressive (still open shoulder design) and it tracked so much better and did not grab nearly as much.

    Well, that and they should completely changed their suspension so its going to handle. But he has run a myriad of tires so Im sure hell have some sort of input.

    Still a great observation and good bit of info. Unfortunately I have been doing tenfold highway over dirt lately so its looking like my next set will be Ridge Grapplers. Hopefully that will make a big difference alone
