Who's running Mud Terrains?

Who is running Mud Terrains?
1. What are you running?
2. How do you like them and how do they wear?
3. How are they on snow and ice?

I am! They were on the Jeep when I bought it 3 weeks ago.

1. Goodyear Wrangler MT/R
2. They are loud on the highway but are awesome off road. (in my experience) I don't know how they wear because I've only had the Jeep for 3 weeks.
3. See above.

1. Toyo MT's 33x12.5x15

2. They are very very heavy. But they do ok off road and on. They are about half tread left and I have had them for almost two years. Was a daily driver until about 3 months ago, now a garage queen/toy. I have not blown a bead, yet, and I air down to 5 psi in the snow, 10 in the summer.

3. Pretty good on snow. Nothing is good on ice.

Would I buy another set? No, due to the weight and the fact my next set of tires will be 35's. I will be getting Goodyear MTR Kevlars. The 35's weigh less than my Toyo 33's.

I'm running Baja Claw Radials by Mickey Thompson. I love them. They're somewhat loud on the highway, but no louder than the average mud terrain, even with their more aggressive tread pattern. They balanced easily and wear really well. Here's what they look like.....

I just got off a set of Firestone Destination MT's and they were great. They wore right around 50,000 and I only rotated them once. If I had taken better care of them they would have gone longer. They were great on all surfaces and in all weather.

I ran Interco TrXus MT's on my YJ and absolutely loved em. They are super quiet and are a fairly soft compound and had a very very nice ride on the road. I was running a 35x12.50x15. I thought they did pretty well in the British mud too. DistortedTJ is still running them on his TJ in a 33".

Here's an image of them


And on my YJ.

I run BFG Mud Terrains, 33x12.50x15. They wear great and are not ridiculously loud on the pavement. I haven't had them for snow yet so we will see about that. But I love the aggressive look.

I have ran @ different sets of M/T since lifting my Jeep TJ.

1. I first put on the TRXUS M/T because of the price and the aggresive look. They were tough to balance, having wheel weights on the inside and outside of the rim. Here's the kicker though: While riding around on the farm, I was right next to the woods and apparently hit a very small stump that punctured my sidewall right on the curve of the tire. I didnt know that then, but the next day I went to ride around and tire was flat. I called 4WD Hardware to order a new one but Super Swampers were on backorder for like 3 months. So I got pissed off and ordered a whole new set of Mickey Thompson MTZ's.

2. Mickey Thompson MTZ's - Excellent tire so far. I have about 7000 miles on them. They balanced with half the weights of the TRXUS M/T's and right much better. They dont look as aggresive in some aspects but they are still mean looking. The only drawback I would have to say is that they pick up a lot of small gravel after driving on a rock driveway and when you speed up on the highway causes them to fling out all the rock. This drawback though only goes to show you how good these tires grab and pull you forward.

All in all both were great tires with the TRXUS being cheaper by about 40 bucks a tire.

^^^^I know what you're saying. My Mickey Thompson Baja Claws pick up some massive rocks in the tread voids. Doesn't really bother me though.

I have the mud terrains, they are a good tire although I don't like them for snow. Mud, they are good & rocks, water they seem ok but if it is ice or snow forget them. As far as wear they seem to last & havn't got any louder as the wear has progressed like some on the highway.

Anyone else running the Procomp's. I have found them for almost $50 a tire cheaper than the BFG's that I was planning on getting.

BFG MT's KM1's

LOVE THEM! Why did they switch to the KM2's??? WHYYYYY

I purchased them on the jeep. I have a hard one for BFG anyway so its either the KM2's or the MT/R w/ Kevlar for my next tire. I've seen too many swampers get dominated by stobs and stumps to put them on my rig.

I was wondering the same thing, I love my tires but for my next set I was thinking about going over to the pro comps which are much cheaper. and they look identical, I just don't know how they wear.

Im running the new GoodYear Wrangler MTR-Kevlars!! They are sweet, they look agressive as hell,especially the sidebitters! I have only had them on for about 2 months, but i did tons and tons of reserch on tires before i decided on these and people get long life out of them. They do great offroad and on road, not to loud or to quiet. Also the Kevlar sidewalls are cool, knowing you basically have a bullet proof vest in your tire is reasuring in any terrian lol. A gpood looking and performing Mud/offroad tire!!

Here is a pic from google and 2 pics of them on my Jeep:







Not the best pics of them on my Jeep but thats what the Google pic is for

I'm running Kumho KL71 M/T's and I like them a lot so far.
They are not super heavy compared to some of the other tires I have had.

So far, the wear has been very even and slow. I only have about 15k on them though. Road manners are great, and not very noisy at all.

As for Ice and snow - Snow they do great in. The tires clear themselves nicely, and seem to grip quite well in most depths and conditions.

Ice can be a little more tricky, but they did pretty well this winter - no worse than others I have used.

Mud, sand, rocks etc... - excellent. They clear themselves out very nicely, and grip like a mountain goat
I like them better than my Baja claws that I used to run on the YJ.

Decently priced as well. I would suggest them.

MTs here too, my last four sets of Jeep tires have been MTs. I'm currently running what I believe is the finest/toughest MT tire currently available, Goodyear's new kevlar reinforced MT/R which makes its sidewall nearly bulletproof. Before them, I ran two sets of the older non-kevlar MT/R which was a superb tire even without the kevlar.

Aside from the tread, that tire sure looks like a BFG Mud Terrain T/A to me. Is that a retread on a BFG MT carcass.

May be a dumb question but does MT in your post refer to Mud Terrain or Mickey Thompson?

i have the dunlop mud rovers and they handle the snow and ice better than i thought they would, i call them the "poor man's swampers" the tires hold up well with little wear.
