What are the pros and cons of non radials.I've herd they're lame on the freeway but thats about it.Also what are the pros and cons of directional tires,I've heard that if you use them your directional spare will only be good on one side of your truck.

If you have bias ply tires, when they are cold they will develop small flat spots until they have been driven for a while. The directonal spare thing is true, but how much wheelin' would you do if you are running on your spare? You could put it on either side until you get your tire fixed.

Why do they make bias ply tires and witch is better off road bias or radial.I'm pretty sure the US military use wrangler mt's that are radial and wrangler rt's that are bias and directional on the humvee.
