Gateway Buckshot mudders

Has anyone ever used the GATEWAY Buckshot mud tire?
http://www.ok4wd.com/index.php/catal...ders_bias_ply/

The price is right, and they look cool. From what I hear, they have about 1" of tread depth, and have good traction. Any opinions? Thanks.

Nope, they are narrow....old school. They'd look perfect on a stock to mildly lifted CJ, and even more bad *** on a flat fender. The N78-15 is something like 30.16" tall by 9.80" wide. The P78 is more like a 33x10. I can't find any old school size converter that lists a P78. Anyone out there know?

This might be helpful :

This load-based system was introduced worldwide in 1968. The designation takes into account the load carrying capability and aspect ratio in the alpha character with aspect ratio and wheel diameter also included, for example: Q78-16

* Q designates the load and size relationship (with some typical section widths listed below):
o Letters for passenger cars range from A - N:
+ A =
+ B =
+ C =
+ D =
+ E =
+ F =
+ G =
+ H =
+ I =
+ J =
+ K =
+ L78/15 = 30x 9.5
+ N78/15 = 31x 9.5
o Above N indicates truck and severe use duty:
+ O =
+ P78/15 = 33x10.0
+ Q78/15 = 36x11.5
+ Q78/16 = 36x10.5
+ R78/15 = 37x12.5
+ R85/16 = 37x12.0
+ S =
o If this were a radial, an R would precede the Q
* 78 indicates the series, better described as the size relationship between the sidewall height (section height) and the sidewall-to-sidewall width (section width)
o A 78-series tire has a sidewall height whose measurement is 78% of that of the section width

Thanks for the info, southernbred. The N78 is taller than what I found on the google search. I think a 31 is the tallest I can clear with my stock suspension, so I'll probably get a set of those for playing off road, and a semi-aggressive tire for every day use.

Those tires are awesome. I ran them over 20 years ago on my Ramcharger. They make the new maxxis buckshots look like ATs.

Gateway Buckshot Mudders

I may be a little late for you but I have a set of 4 Gateway Wide Mudders mounted on GMC 16" wheels listed on Craigs list. I also have some comments about how great these tires work.

Thanks,
Conejos

I ran the original Buckshots on a full time 4wd Blazer back in the '80's, that beast may have gone through the tires on the highway, but it was unstoppable in the snow and mud.

Last time I looked about 9 months ago there was no longer a current manufacturer for these excellent tires. I did an exhaustive search on the web and discussed with local tire stores and they're just no longer to be had, unless you find some NOS but then you have to be concerned with age (sidewall cracking, etc.)
I ultimately went with a full set of BFK KM2's and they're nearly as aggressive as I recall the Buckshots I used to run on my old Blazer

Gateway and Denman were the same company, but each had their respective tire. Denman Groundhogs, and Gateway Buckshot Gumbo Mudder. When Interco bought them out several years ago, they dropped the Mudder.

They still make these tires. Well they are maxis buckshot mudders. Great tires I have put around 30k on mine and still have tread left.
