I don't have any personal experience, but I know people who do. If anyone is intrigued by these tires I'd be glad to ask the guy I know who runs them (and he does run them on a Jeep).
Just bought a set of 315/75/16 and they are awesome.

Pros:
Smooth ride, Cleans out better than any other mud tire I have had (Procomp M/T, Toyo Open Country M/T, Mickey Thompson MTZ)

Cons:
No sidewall lugs, but with how they clean out, you really do not need sidebitters.
Bead protections- There is none

My '05 Rub came with a pair and I don't like them. The hard compound they use is not very good when things get cold or wet. Still had MTR's on the rear and when I did a rotation the traction difference was noticeable immediately, as I spun out on wet pavement where the MTR's had no issue. And I take this same corner every day on my commute to work. I'm planning a lift & 35's so they'll be gone soon.

FWIW, I've had numerous friends & family members 'love' their hercs; because they saved some cash. They may be great tires where temps are warm & dry; and they wear like iron. But here in Canada where we actually have to deal with lousy weather I don't recommend them to anyone as they lock up and skid out very easily. I joke with friends that 'I wouldn't let my wife ride in a car with those tires unless her life insurance is paid up!' And as an ex-tow truck driver, I loved them (and all cheapo tires) for putting cash in my pocket.

When making a tire decision, don't try to find the cheapest tire. Find the best one you can afford. Any tire company can make a cool looking, cheap tire from a hard compound that will last a long time but it takes money and engineering to make a tire that performs in various conditions. Any cash you saved will be gone the first time you hit something, which a better tire may have prevented. And while I'm here, the same thing goes for brakes.

Driving a 98 ZJ Limited 5.9L. It has the stock 16" rims on it and I think for now I just want to get some nice Mudd Terrains of some kind. What is the max tire size I can go up to. It has 265/70r16's on it now. I'd prefer it not to rubb, and if it does I'll have to get spacers.
Any info would be great.

just got my first set of KM2'S a few weeks ago, really good on the street for a mud tire, haven't really done any real off roading with them yet but from what everybody says they are one of the best you can get.

I'm now torn between 3 for my next set, leaning toward a 3rd set of Kumho KL-71s, 2nd is BFG KM2, third is MT/R-Kevlar. 35s this time

I've seen them all perform great wheeling, now inflated height is going to go far in making my decision. I drag the diffs too much for my comfort.

Street manners mean pretty much nothing to me this time around...for long wheeling trips, the ZJ is a trailer queen. Slickrock and Colorado granite for me

What tyre size should one have for the Simpson Desert? Would 265/75R16 (31.6") mud terrains cut it?

I want to smash it in my ZJ with a torqued up engine and upgraded transmission (upgrades in progress) and show up those toyotas and nissans for the slow coaches that they are
