I've always run MUD KING XT's for a mud tire. The A/T version Sport Kng is also a long life tire that handles well on and off road. Currently I have Pro Comps A/T on the TJ since they were on it when I bought it, though I don't really care for em.

My tire guy is tryin to get me to try out Maxxis new tire the Bighorn



I may try these for my next tire.

I'm trying to decide if I want Cooper STT's or Dunlop Mud Rovers for my DD/weekend warrior Cherokee when I lift it. 31x10.5x15 is the size. What do you sudgest and what is cheaper (but still ok)?

I have had 3 diffent sets of Mud King XT's, 33-12.50-16.5, 32-11.50-15, LT235 75R15, they all rode good, not bad on noise, and wore very good. I got 45000 miles out of the 235's.

Hi Guys,

I am up for new tires and maybe new rims.

What I currently have.

Centerline H/T 15x10 rims
Bridgestone Dualer ATs 33x12.5

I dont do rock climbing, non down here in south Georgia, but there is a lot of bloody mud!

Should I drop down to a 10x8 or 10x8.5 rim? I want to keep the 33x12.50 tires but thought about Cooper MTs or TrXus MTs. I have a lead on some Centerline H/T 15x8.5s, with the same design I have now....that I like!

What ya think?

Looking at BFG M/T's or MT Baja Claw Radial's. Which has a better tread life with highway driving? I'll be getting 31x10.5R15 but I don't know where from yet. Waiting till I get out of the military in July.

I'm also looking into these if anyone has and info/advise on them.
Is the rubber soft? (like Cooper, Pro Comp, and Nitto's?)
or a bit hard (like BFG and GY?)

Thanks

Not too long ago, I was at a party. A friend drove up with 37" Toyo M/T's on his diesel Dodge. Got stuck. Zack's dad drove his stock '83 Jeep CJ-5 completely stock with street tires around his truck through the mud and pulled him out with it.
Mud? Go with TSL's if you don't do much highway. Sand? Go with an all-terrain-type tire tread. Rocks, well, we don't have any here in Florida. But we know exactly what the mud is all about.
