Dunlop Mud Rover Q?

I just ordered a set of 30x9.50 Mud Rovers for my TJ and was wondering if anyone else has used or wheeled with these tires?
I mainly do light wheeling and plan on taking a trip to Black Mountain this year on a trail ride. I just want to make sure the Jeep is up to the task and hope these tire will do better then the crappy Goodyears lol.

Haven't run em on a four wheel drive, but I used to run them on the back of my baja bug and they did pretty well offroad.

I had them in 31's on my old lifted ZJ. Wheeled them 1 time before a tree fell on it. I had no problums keeping up with my some well built rigs on 35's. Good on the street, snow, and mud. I would buy them again.

Got em on early! Seem to ride really nice, some sidewall flex and noise. Should be trying them out saturday on the farm to see how well they grip.

I wheeled in Baja, Mexico over Thanksgiving week 2011 with this Jeep, and he did GREAT!



Not a single tire failure. In Baja, you can't second guess your tire selection.


Rock crawling was a breeze for this Rubicon on Mud Rovers.

This shows the true test of the tire - lateral stability.


Here, my worn TrXus MTs slid like crazy. I had no control! The Dunlops and the MTRs did just fine.




He slipped just a little bit here, but so did everyone else on the trip.



The best thing about a Baja 4WD run...MEXICAN FOOD!!

^^^^ Nice pics!
My last set were the Mud Rovers and I have no complaints. They do sing on the highway, especially once they start to wear, but that doen't bother me.

I agree...awesome pictures! I had some on my last TJ before I traded it. I can't complain about the tires at all! I think you made a good choice.

Took them for a trial run today and the done great! Plenty of bite in the mud and even on a some rock ledges I tried to climb, really need a locker now. Im going to Black Mountain this spring so I will really see how well they perform on a good trail ride.
