Need help with mud tires

Im looking to get some new mud tires soon and need some help deciding between options. I have had mud kings and loved them, they did everything i wanted them to! The 3 tires im stuck between are the mud kings, gt radial adventuro MT, and federal couragia MT. So far all the reviews iv read for the gt radials and federals have been pretty good. My question is from fellow jeep wheelers what would be essentially the better of the 3?

Are you on a tight budget? None of those are popular tire choices.

4 wheel parts has their buy 3 get 1 free going on again right now. I just got a set of Pro Comp xtreme MT for around 900 with the road hazard. btw, 35x12.50-15
I have run their regular MT and the Xterrains before and have had good luck with them

I bought a set of the Xtreme MT's on a truck I had during their "sale", worst set of tires I've ever bought. I worse through the siping on two of them in less than 3-4k. The reason I say "sale" is their "buy 3 get 1" offer is just as bad as their tires. By the time you pay MSRP, and all of their other happy horseshiet I can get a better set of tires shipped for the same price.

The Xtreme MT's are a sad excuse for a Toyo ripoff anyways. So lets see, a set of Toyo's to my front door the same price, or go to a 4WP and deal with the mouth breathing idiots that's work there and take it in the shorts...

yea i do like the mud kings but i was thinking about maybe trying something different if there was something near the same price give or take. but ill check out the pro comps, the only thing is i feel like from what iv seen is the big name brand expensive tires wear out alot faster than the cheaper tires (just from what iv seen coming into my shop). i have thought about the KM2s but not sure if i want to spend the money. whats your guys thoughts on the maxxis bighorn?

I don't know anyone running those so can't offer any useful info there. I like the looks of the Trepador for a DD but will be going with the Creepy Crawlers on my trail rig.

KM2's properly rotated with suspension/steering components in good shape will last a very long time on a vehicle like a wrangler.

Hankook Dynapro RT03.Its a hybrid MT/AT but its more along the lines of a mud terrain. great highway manners although they are a tad loud. amazing on rock and in mud. what i was worried about the most when i bought them was wet pavement traction but they havent hydroplaned at all. Ive got roughly 21,000 miles on them and still have over half the tread left. When i bought them last year they were $184ea from discount tire.

Another way is to sit on the pot, reach down and grip the bowl with both hands, and push against the floor with your feet.
