Mine are great in the rain. 13 inches is too little to challenge these tires!

I wouldn't worry about a Mudder in the rain, the lugs are so deep there is little chance of hydroplaning and the soft rubber has good grip.
I've been running some sort of mudder on my work trucks for 15 years now and the only complaint I have is the noise once the tires are worn.

If you're looking for action, you gotta have traction.
Get the mudders and don't look back.

Now I have to find a set of 17" wheels and tires for my machine.

The BFG muds really aren't bad in the rain.. Some slippage around tight corners with too much speed.

I've heard people complain about them in snow but mine have been fantastic.

So far no rubbing has been noticed.
How did you trim the ball joint stud
