Bfg ko's and mud :/

hit a back road and went through some mud mix with small gravel. geez these are not the best tires for this mix it was so hard to get off even with the power washer at the car wash it took me a long time to clean each tire and cost me lots of quarters lol

I used to run those on my old blazer. Great all terrain tire, but not quite enough open tread for mud. Best tire for light wheeling, logging and fire roads, dirt and grass paths ect. Never had good luck in the mud though.

Mine weren't the best in mud either, but I never had too much of a problem with them. I never got stuck and I was in some thick soupy crap. I found that they perform in mud a little better when they were slightly worn because they clear out easier.

I haven't got stuck yet but the small gravel was stuck in the tread with the mud and I had to pull some out with my hands and I was dirty and the Jeep was clean after I finally finished lol

That sounds about right. They are an all around great tire, just a little below average in mud. They were amazing in the sand dunes though. Now I must say, I bought MTZs to replace my KO's and its a huge difference. They clear out like crazy and sling the stuff everywhere. They are great on the street too. Just something to keep in mind when its time for a new set.

Oh and when you drive all gravel rocks are slinging all over the bottom of my tub! POP, PING!!

Actually these were brand new installed by dealer for free, today is actually my 1 year anniversary of owning it. So I'm using these until they wear. the spare is a dick septic fcII so that tells me the PO were running these, I read they were pretty good in the mud.

I believe the Fun Country is considered an all terrain right? They do pretty well in mud though.

It's their AT tires, I did some research and seen many saying they are really good in the mud for an AT tire. Since I already have a spare I would rather just match up all my tires. the tread looks wider than the bfg's

This is the one reason I won't run KOs or General AT2s anymore. The interlocked tread sucks out loud if you live in this part of the country where we've got mud everywhere and snow in the winter.

Perfect tire for this, yet quiet on the road and will last longer than an M/T tire.

Anyone know how big of a tire you can use on a yj without needing a lift kit?

30 x 9.50 on a stock YJ. 31 x 10.50 should fit with extended shackles or a 2" spring lift.
