Those are the only Open Country M/Ts I know of.

My brother and his friend run them on their trucks. He does a lot of go-fast desert stuff and apparently they do very well there. As far as mud goes, I wasn't impressed. It may have been the weight of the vehicle but his brand new tires on his Ram 1500 turned into slicks and had him stuck spinning all four wheels where my Duratracs, which aren't even a MT, plowed through. Same story with his friend's F-250. Not to mention they are very, very heavy. He sold his old set that had a 1/8" tread to a guy with a CJ, and the guy with the CJ said they did very well in the snow even without siping and that he was able to drive around it a foot of snow easily. As always, YMMV, but I wasn't impressed.

The stuff we were in was very, very thick so i may have had the weight advantage of just not sinking down.



Maybe someone with them on a wrangler will chime in.

they seem to run great in snow, mud and rock so far and i'm running in a jeep wrangler '06, 33x12.5x16 4" lift with rock sliders, src smittybilt front and rear bumpers and a fifth tire (mentioning all this because of weight).

I ran them on all my trucks, but have not had experience with them on my jeep. I LOVED them on the trucks. They never failed me.

KM2's are the way to go. Same design as Krawlers but half the price. If you want any mud tire to perform offroad you need to let the air out. When a tire is at low pressure it can flex and stretch as it moves over things and that is what really helps a tire shed mud. Just ask around, you will see the majority of people that really wheel their rigs are running bfg's or swampers. Toyo mt's are just too stiff to really perform offroad.

Look at the Cooper Discoverer STT's. Very similar in looks, I love mine. I've never had a traction issue except for my first time out when the side walls weren't broken in.

All sounds like Good information.. Have a lot of work this summer to get her ready for next Fall. Now I can move on to thinking about steel vs alloy rims

Alloy all the way. I put steel wheels on my tj and I regret doing it. They are heavyer then crap and are not that cool. At the time the price sounded good because the tires were so spendy, but if I could go back and change my mind I would in a heartbeat. Go with procomps, they have some good looking wheels.

Alloys if you can afford it. Stronger, lighter, no downsides
