Goodyear Tires, Portland $400

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

While the terra tires will pop up for sale every so often, these tires are much harder to fine.  I've never run them so I don't know how much better (or not) they are than terras.

"two (2) 31×15.5×15 v-bar tires. Run them forward in the mud/snow/dirt or turn them around and run them backwards in the sand. These tires provide alot of traction. Rims are for a 15" tire and are 14" wide with 5 on 5 1/2 lug pattern(1/2 ton ford & 86 and older jeep). There is some surface rust on the rims but nothing a little elbow grease and some paint won't take care of. These are not implement tires (like on a backhoe). these are made by Goodyear and I believe they are radials. They are called super terra grips. They are not street legal/off-road only tires. call 503-458-7010 Chris Phone call will be best will deliver for the cost of fuel and a cheeseburger."

Unique set of Hurricane Rims (offer price)

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

Matt, who just sold me set of hurricane rims (thanks!) that match what I have, sent me this ad.  I believe these are actually Hurricane Rims rather than Turbine rims as labeled by the seller.   I've emailed the seller to get dimensions, however they appear to be wide enough to be 10x15s.  

"This is a nice pair of 5 lug Turbine wheels they are 5×5.1/2 bolt pattern which fit Ford & Dodge. the bolt holes are not washed out or damaged. This is the end of the line for these wheels if they don't sell they will go in the Scrap and that would be a shame, so if you can use them make me a offer, Priced to move."

Desert Dog Tires

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

This thread is being kept for discussion and information purposes.

Oldies but goodies…

“Hey you jeep racers I have 6 dogs 4 with tubes in great shape, and 2 in fair condition, 6 lug chrome spokes, mounted ready to go! only used on the weekends! with only 4 weeks till racing starts you need tires! or if your a jeeper who needs a good set of old school tires please write!”

Formula Desert Dog History

Anyone know the history of Desert Dog tires?  Apparently, according to the CJ3B Page Website (See comment at the bottom of CJ3B Page), “Louie says his Desert Dogs were the first out of the mold, given to him for testing and photographed for advertising in the 1970’s.”.   “Louie” is Louie Larson, aka Gopher 4×4.  By his comment on the same CJ3B page, it sounds as if he still has the same tires.

I’m sure I’ve seen some branded Firestone, some branded Armstrong, but most  are branded just Formula Tires. I have 3 kinds of desert dogs and all are branded Formula Tires.

Here’s info from a forum, “I have numerous old advertisements for the Desert Dog Tires and all say Formula on the sidewall and all over the ad, but down at the bottom in small print it says they are manufactured Armstrong. I do not know the specifics on the tires, but my guess is that armstrong may have dropped the Formula brand and rebranded the tires as their own. ”

And another comment from the same page, “We raced on Armstrong’s for several years. They were a major supporter and supplier of tires at the races. …. Armstrong offered several tires that we raced on at various times: Norseman, Tru Trac (sp), Desert Dog, and Desert Dog Formula. Later Armstrong started selling some of the tires under the Formula name. They were a good tire, and a lot of big teams raced on them. Back then there were several major tire companies involved (Armstrong, Goodyear, General, BFG, Yokahama, Cooper)”

Armstrong Desert Dog AT —  There are some All Terrain Desert Dogs produced by Armstrong that have the same type of lettering as the Formula desert dogs, but with decidedly different tread. Click on picture to see lettering.
