Gumbo Monster Mudders. Old School but maybe almost as good?

I have a set of 38.5x15x15 Gumbo Monster Mudders 95% tread. The tread pattern is almost like Swamps but minus the TSL. Does anybody still wheel on these tires or should i upgrade the next chance i get?
Thanks
Dusty

I had a friend who had these tires on a pickup years ago. They worked great!! I don't even know if you can get them anymore. I would use them if they were in my garage.

You can still find them out there. There are still a great tire. There is a chance that they will be on the jeep for my next tire. Being my jeep is being built for a hunting/muddy trail rig.

Don't use those tires! Send them to me so I can properly dispose of them.

How old are they? I wouldn't use them if they have any dry rot on them. but they are a great tire if the rubber is still good.

There about 20 years old 85% tread. No lie. They have dry rot but hold air and pull good. Just one problem they dont have 3-Stage Lugs so sidewalls are kinda exposed. Not getin rid of them unless u want to trade TSL's

I would love to find a set of gumbos in 40's, can only find the 38" radial. I'd run 'em!
