H1 Military radial OZ tires

Hi, I am looking for opinions of these tires, pics if anyone has any, and overall impression. I would be putting them on a 92 ford F250 diesel. Currently the truck is not lifted but this summer I plan to do a Sky 3" shackle lift with superduty springs which should put it at overall 4.5" of lift. I am assuming that should be enough to clear the 37" tires. Sounds like these tires can last up to 30K and half the price of Toyo MT's. Only bummer is they are 16.5 inch. which does not leave many other tire options later on down the road.

Search, and you will be rewarded. IN particular, go to the vendor section and look for 406YJ-- he's selling sets w/H1's at great prices.

You get a pass because you're new, but search here first and save yourself the flames.

I'll tell you a bit from my experience. They are good on the rocks, ok in mud, not real good on slimy hill climbs, and decent on the highway at speeds not more than 55. My biggest complaint with these tires is that they will not balance out. I've taken them in three times, I'm running a combination of 18 oz. of beads and rim weights and the still shake the truck to death over 55. I'm pretty sure the ones I have are out of round but from my research, this is pretty common with these tires. They are built for ruggedness but not for speed. The upside is, if you can handle driving 55, they will last forever.

I run them, unbalanced on MRW beadlocks on my sprung over FJ60.

The are great on the highway up to about 70mph.
Rocks and loose dry they are great, add mud, and I might as well be running gatorbacks....

For the money though @ $95 each, they RULE!!!!

i've run several sets of them and they will last for 50k+. these are a tremendous value for a rig such as yours. they definitely leave something to be desired off road, but for a good all around tire that wears like iron on the street and costs 1/4 the price of new stuff, you just can't go wrong

I run a set unbalanced combination of hyway and Colorado trails. On the hyway pulling a trailer with camping gear and 100 gallon propane tank it'll run 80MPH with one hand lightly on the wheel with 65 psi in the tires. On the trail we generally aren't hauling the trailer and air done to about 20PSI since the 16.5 wheels I run do not have a safety bead, they do just as well as they guys running the high dollar tires. I am looking to get a set of bead locks soon.
