Any Wild Country tire experience/ if not sub $150.00 33 tire opinions

I found a great deal on some Wild Country tires, the only catch is that I have never really heard of them. Has anyone had experience with these tires?

If not what is a good 33x12.5x15 in your guys opinion, around $150.00. I have seen some general grabbers, some kuhmos, dunlops, bfgs, and what I like the most is the Yokohama geolander. All of those tires, ESP the Yokohama cost a Lot more than the wild countys.

Any help would be appreciated. TIA

I currently have wild countrys on my tj and I really don't have any complaints as far as on road handling. These are the first set I have ever had a lot of guys ran these when I was in high school. The po had these on when I bought it but I will be going to bfg when these wear out.

I had some 33" Radial TXR's gifted to me by the PO, and they were not good. The tread blocks were too big to do well in the slick stuff (snow/ice), and the voids were not wide enough to throw off mud particularly well either ... The large tread blocks didn't flex very well offroad either. All around I would never pay to own that design again. They were not good at anything but dry road, and even then they hummed as much as my KM2's do, lol.

I haven't really seen a tread design they offer that looks particularly interesting, and with the sidewall cord ripples I saw with mine I wouldn't be willing to take a gamble with anything else remotely close. To me they are a run of the mill brand.

I have had the all terrains on two different trucks and they were good tires. No rock crawlin with them though, just dirt trails and mud.

Wild Country offers a few different tread patterns. Which one were you looking at?

Goodyear Duratracs are $138 at Tread depot.
