They are supposed to do about 40,000 miles. They have a soft compound which means better traction as well.

I just love to go where no man has gone before.
Rock climbing, in marshes, atv trails, mud, tundra etc.

Mud Tires

Saw some stuff on mud tires. Thought i would post.
I just bought a set of 33x12.5r15 cooper discoverer STT. Have only had them for a few days but man do they look sweet! I have ran the BFG's MT before and they are nice but everybody has them. I did get a lot of mileage out of them though but I wanted something new and the coopers were great price and look great!
Ill post when i take them out, so far on street they are quit and work well in the rain!

I was also looking at the Kumho KL71 but they were on a 2month back order. Look Good though guess few people have them, hard to find a review on them.

Looked at the Dunlops guess they wear pretty quick

They are very smooth on the road. They perform fine at high speeds.

I don't have much experience with mud tires, but I did a lot of thinking before I bought mine and I am very happy with them thus far.

Pro Comp Mudders and 1079 wheels

Hello All,
I just ordered 5 ProComp 35"x12.5x15 tires and 5 Pro Comp 1079 wheels, mounted , balanced, lugnuts and caps for $1447 shipped to my door from Sportztrailers in Albaqueque, NM. I have seen the tires offraod on my friends Jeep and the wheels look like the Baja wheels from American Racing. I will be mounting them on my 2005 Ulimited Ruby. I can't wait to get them and will take pics when they are installed. I will have a liftkit on it's way soon, too. Ron

Anyone mount the Toyo 33x1350x15 on a 15x8 wheel? Would I need to go 15x10? How does it perform on/off road on a 15x8 wheel?

I was told that it can work. I have the 33X13.50 Toyo Mud terrains but on 15x10 rim. This setup works perfect for me

Get 16 inch rims and get 1200 or 900 Tractor tires..
Real popular here and we have a red clay and in "rainy season" we have 5 foot+ mud holes
But the max speed limit here is 45...
This is just getting in the trails


This one has 900s the smaller ones

BFG m/t or TrXus MT? Main factor is price and life. I'm a poor college student and can't afford to replace after 15k, and I can't swing $$$$$$$ a tire. I live in upper Michigan with over 200 inches of snow a year, so I'm thinking trxus mt's. I do switch out to winterforce tires in the winter so I guess it's not a huge factor. They will see 65% off road and 35% on. Noise/vibes don't bother me.

I'd say trxus mt's. What do you guys think?
