Not that I know of. I've had mine on order for about a month now!!! I was told they would be "released" sometime in January….so, I guess we'll see.

These got pushed back to Mid Feb at the earliest (fourth date I've gotten now) so I just ordered a second set of M&H fronts since I'm sick of waiting. Maybe the boat from china got lost. I'll order these again when they physically show up

Hmmmm, that's not good news. I can wait until the end of Feb, but if they're not delivered by then, I will cancel and go with the M&H too!!!

I talked with M/T today about their new radial skinnies that I have had on order for about a month now. They confirmed it would be late February (at the earliest) that I would possibly receive them. I didn't get a very "warm fuzzy" about that date either!!! I'm not sure at this point if I should just cancel and order the M&H, or wait it out....

I don't really even NEED the tires until the end of Feb.....but if they get delayed again after that, I'm gonna end up getting pissed off!!!! Hmmmmm......what to do....what to do????

I'm in the same exact boat as you. I think I ordered mine on Dec 19th. I'm trying to be as patient as possible, but my patience is wearing thin already. If I don't get some good news soon, I'll probably cancel these and just go with the bias-ply M&H's.

Thought I'd share my New MT 28" radials I received yesterday. Here you go! Now the WELD wheels wait begins.... May 7th couldn't get here any faster.

Also, found a GREAT place to purchase complete set from and best pricing anywhere I've seen even with the group buys. PM me if you want more info on where and who.

Don't quote me but I believe the price on these were just under $190 each with free shipping and no tax.. Received them 3 days later from order

While I'm posting the weight thought I'd show the M&H 325 as well. Also, the other 2 tires were within an ounce of each other..

Could you do us a solid and report what the max load rating will be? It should be on the side of the tire. Thanks.

Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/R 28x6.00R17 front runner Radial

MAX LOAD 1175 LBS at 50 PSI COLD

And the BORN on DATE was the 9th week of 2014 just in case anyone wanted to know when manufactured..

I had the max psi cold incorrect for these front runners. It says 50. NOT 60. Although still high I just wanted to correct. I'll post installed pics later.
