Good tires for South florida mostly mud
 
Hi i drive a 2003 jeep rubicon completley stock. Just wondered what would be a good lift kit and good tires for mudding and also driving through dirt rodes? I use the jeep to get everywhere. Also thinking of getting a snorkler but where do i buy one?

Thx guys :D

what size tires and lift are you looking at?
ive had great results with my 33" tsl radials down here. but as scout posted, you cant beat a bogger for mud(except for ag. tires :D)

Ya, my explorer window was acting up with the paste feature last night. But the tire one should work. I was linking a 4" Skyjacker sus lift with Nitro shocks from Quadratec.

I dont know how much you have to spend, but those toyos are priced close to the superswamper SSR's which are decent in the mud and onroad http://www.tirepackage.com/partlists...69&ptID=100013
you really cant go wrong with a super swamper(interco) tire(except for the thornbirds and truxus)

I have them, and they are great in the mud( not as good a super swampers) but they are better than super swampers because they don't wear like race car tires, and they are dead silent on-road. Well worth it for a DD.

If you are off-road more than 50% of the time, and don't mind quick tire wear get Super Swampers. They are the best by far off-road, but suck on road. I have the Toyo m/t because they handle good, are quiet, and Jeeps can get over 50k miles on them. Plus they dominate in mud. Had to pull my friend's 4runner with a/t tires out of the mud hole i made it through with no major loss of traction.

pro comp xtreme mud terrain have same tread pattern and what looks like more siping better(driving in rain and flexibility)... The price would be alot cheaper too. I would go with cragar soft 8s as rims off of summitracing.com it will save you alot of money and everyone loves steelies

acopsy88 11-14-2007 11:43 PM

of the toyo tires sorry

tobycat1 11-15-2007 12:08 AM

If you try them, you'll realize how good they are.

if your gonna go with the toyos, might as well save your money and go with the BFG mud terrains or x-terrains. Im in the south florida mud every weekend and i used to run the x-terrains and they did decent. The toyos wont have a chance.

hey, were in miami are u located. me and lost are both in miami. come wheel with us:punk:

tobycat1 11-15-2007 12:47 AM

Guess it depends on the driver:) I get through stuff my friends with either of those tires can't. I didn't like my cousins BFG's, they don't do as well for me. Tires are a personal choice, everyone does better with one or the other. I think you should have some friends let you drive their rigs to get a feel for the tires.
