If you are looking for a tire to just good give traction in mud, I would suggest the super swamper boggers. They are literally giant claws for mud. Or you could try TSLs.

Most people on here are not looking for traction in mud, but rather traction in the rocks.

As said earlier also, the km2 is not a bad tire, cheap too.

Edit: jb said it right. Bogger or TSL

X2 thornbirds are crap

good year mt/r's arent a bad choice either.

When money allows I will be going to pit bull rockers.

Anything real soupy and red clay will be hard to get tires to clean themselves. Even boggers will "gum" up however they are the best tire for that stuff. If you want a mix of onroad/offroad you will have to weigh your options and give up a little on both. Sinces it's a DD you'll sacrifice in the mud terrain department if you want them to last awhile, so a km2, mtr/k, ss trxus mt, ss ltb, mtz........etc are going to be your best bet for middle road dd/mud tire. Bias ply gives you better sidewall protection however usually wear faster than a radial.

The link in post #6 has many members recommending Cooper STT's.
If they are considered a good mud tire than I suspect there just is no really decent tire in mud!

I love my STT's but they fill up and are useless in the mud. I spent last weekend in mud (far from my favorite thing) due to heavy rains..... and I looked at everyones tires. they all clogged up and spun with poor traction on wet muddy trails and climbs. None of them cleared till out on open road where they could get up some speed.

Anyone up for spikes?

Bogger:


Tsl


Both are not the greatest on the road but in thick mud they are hard to beat.
I used to have TSLs, but I wanted better ride so I got bfg ATs.

Rockers are a stretch too.. Get better tires for the money.

Boggers or TSL's for just mud.

KM2's are ok on dry rocks

My KM2's have done ok in mud. In clay and thick mud I can see them having trouble cleaning out, but thats any tire. If anything find sometjing that does ok on road and try to avoid the real nasty ****. A locker up front helps too.

Depending on where you live you could probably use the TSLs. I had to get different tires because I was going out to the trails enough to deal with them on the streets in rain.

So if it doesn't rain too much where your at TSLs could work well.

$250...Procomp are almost always on buy 3 get 1 at 4wp...not sure if these new ones are yet, but they gave me that deal at a grand opening event here in my town.

I was looking at catalog recently and saw they come with a 40,000 no questions warranty...which I purchased as well.

Wet traction is great, dirt traction is great. And rock chips seem to be comparable to KM2s I compared on my buddies rig last weekend.
