I know they don't. But just bought a truck with them and I was wondering about if anyone has had them before.

Good. I got online and read a few reviews and they might have mentioned wet performance as being not so Great. Is this true?

Yeah I hear that about a lot of Mud Terrain tires as far as wet conditions go. Most block style MTs don't do good in wet conditions, it's the ATs and car tires with more rubber touching the road and the siping that helps.

So I also had a friend who says he used to run them on his old mudding truck and he said they wear out way too fast. faster than an other MT he's owned. Anyone else experience the same thing?

I ran them for 8,000 miles as stock equipment on my Rubicon (10 years ago). Great traction. Some 'shakes' at hwy speeds above 40 mph, though. Loud as 'Swampers, but get great mileage overall.

That's them. https://www.treadwright.com/p-41-265...dog-m-t-p.aspx

For the record, Goodyear still makes the old style MT/R, but it is sold exclusively to the US military in 37/12.50/16.5 only. You can get them anywhere from brand new to bald thru gov surplus/liquidation. Same with the BFG Baja T/A's.

Seems as if they only sell up to a 33x12.50 in a 15 inch rim size. I need at least 35" tires probably 37s honestly

Last time I checked their site, they had discontinued anything in a 33 12.50 15. Sucks. I would have bought 5 of them.
