Good Mud Tire?

hi,

after the last weekend i need a 2nd set with Mud-Tires.
i slided around very much and didn´t have enough traction in deep mud. my friends with cooper STTs and BFG MTs were better but that wouldn´t be enough for me.
now i´m searching for a real good mud tire.
which one would you buy?

what´s about the mickey thompson baja claw?



or the simex extrem trekker?



i need to drive over public roads to come to the offroad parks. that´s why the tire needs an "E" sign on the sidewall (tested in europe). the baja clay and extrem trekker have this sign. interco tires don´t.

thanks in advance for your help.

go for the claw out of those two choices. I don't have any experiances with the latter, but by the looks of the lug design they don't look very streetable.

I love my BFG/MT's! Every time I have done the mud thing, I have yet to break traction, except when I wanted!

the price isn´t important. i´m looking for some really good mud tires with good traktion and good directional control.
but they need the "E" sign because i have to drive them on public roads on the way to the playgrounds...

out of all of those i'd go with the simex's.

here's another tire that's a copy of the extreme trekker that supposedly has more space in between the lugs
Silverstone MT-117 Xtremes

My personal choice: Interco Super Swamper TSL Radials 33" x 10.5" (on stock rims).

They are excellent in the rain and unbeatable in the mud. Air them down for the rocks.

all interco tires don´t have the "E" sign on the sidewall. they aren´t allowed on public streets here in europe.

I understand the requirement, but that's ridiculous! I think the EU thinks too much about requirements sometimes. I have to deal with FDA and EU all the time and I'm baffled how EU comes up with such nonsensical - impractical requirements.

I was looking at a set of these a couple of days ago. They have a side wall so soft you can push your fingertip and make a noticeable indent from the opposite side.

http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT..._Geolandar.htm


i don´t know if i buy some yokohama M/T+ for the summer or some silverstone MT117 foroffroad use only.



but i have some time to think about it. the tires/wheels will be an x-mas gift from my whole family.
