I had Buckshots on my Yukon for a little while (right before I sold it). They were good wet and dry. I didn't see a lot of offroad action with them but did run through some shallow stuff a few times and they did fine and cleaned pretty well. Noise wasn't bad until interstate speeds, and even then it was acceptable. They were relatively cheap as well, so I would reccomend them.

I put a nice 3-corner slice all the way through mine on my trip through Sledgehammer in Johnson Valley that took 30+ tire plugs to finally get it sealed well enough so I could limp back to our campsite.
you cant stick a knife through the sidewall. trust me i have tried.
Kevlar re-enforced and the tire also runs on a huge run flat mechanism if it is shot out. This tire only requires about 15 PSI as most of the space inside the tire is solid. Not because of the runflat but the increased sidewall thickness and tread thickness.

The military version is a different case to the regular MT. Also these MTs were specially made for the VAMTAC T7, a hummer copy for deployment in Iraq in 03. VAMTAC complained to GY about the poor sidewall performance and they got a small production run of the new tire for testing. A set which found its way for me to test as I am a dealer for the H1 lookalike.

You have a valid point though because the standard MT has weak sidewalls. They are notorious among the civilian H1 community. Most are replaced with 'like you mentioned' MTRs! The civilian H1 finally got it right this year with the H1 alpha by selling it with MTRs

Toyo Open Country M/ts- 3 sets all JUNK.. WE coulud not get them balanced well enough no matter what we did. We had 12 tires 12 different rims and tried to mix and match them. They all would not balance. Worst tire i have ever owned.

Do they still make the older looking Goodyear Hummer style mudders? Where Can I find them at?

You may want to throw up the IROKs and Interco TSL/SX's, which are available in wider sizes than the TSL Radials.

Denman Tires

Are the Ground Hawgs any good. I've heard that they last a long time on the road due to the hardness of the rubber

I'm running a set of Pro Comp MT's. They are great tires but they don't last long. I only got a little over 10k out of them and now I need new tires. I'm saving them for playing and getting some AT's. That is unless there are some MT's that will last driving down the highway. Are there any MT's with like a 40-50k tread life?

Probably way past due, but I was just looking at the Toyo Open Country MT and it has that feature.

Wow, what are you doing to those PC MTs that they need replacing after 10k miles? I had ~20k on a set that was only 1/2 worn. I sold the truck they were on so I won't be able to tell how long they'd last, but I'd venture to say they'd go up to about 40k before needing replacement. Just my opinion!

Your kidding me right? We have 4 rigs running the 35x13.50 R 15 versions here and they are the best balancing MT we have ever seen. (and the best the tire place has ever seen.

My worst tire took 4.75 ounces to balance and one of them only took .5 ounces.

These are the best tires I have run on my Jeep. I feel they outperform my 35" MT/Rs in every respect and I really like MT/Rs.

I've got the TSL/SX. Great tire, but so far I have had three sets of interco tires and in extreme cold the side walls have all ed. They offered to send me a new set, but even if I do that, I know they will again. I think it's because the compound is to soft. No matter I am still staying with them. It sucks though.
I had them sipped as well and that helps a lot in traction all year round.
