Best Mud Tire?
 
I am currently running 31x10.50 BFG all terrains and there are just not cutting it for the type of wheeling I want to do. I am thinking about 32 or 33 inch mud terrains. I have heard that TSL'S are terrible on pavement and that throws them out of the option because i do drive my TJ on the roads at least 10 miles or so a day. The only set back is i have a 2.5l with a 2.5 inch rough country suspension lift and a 1 inch body lift but im regearing when i get the tires. I have heard good and bad things about the BFG KM2 but im just looking for some long term jeep owner feedback. Any help or tips at all is very much appreciated.

Dynapro M/Ts or Discoverer STT, end of story. I don't know why everyone is so hung up on BFGs, they are overpriced and don't clean for shit for what they cost.

tlucado 09-16-2010 10:49 PM

Thanks man. Ill look into them for sure! Yeah ive heard a lot of mixed feelings about the km2's so that solidifies me not getting them

I think a lot of the popularity of the BFG's is that they are available in so many sizes... Idk, just my guess. That being said, I love my GY Duratracs, but they aren't a true mud tire, tho we take em mudding often, and have never gotten stuck with them.... :D

I'm considering the yokohama geolander mts in 31x10.50 they seem to be a mean tire.

jayc 09-16-2010 11:23 PM

I'd say look at the maxiis bighorns, dick cepek mud and country, and the mickey thompsons those are the 3 I'm looking at when I need new shoes.

The big selling point on BFG is size availability and softer HWY ride. The Maxxis Buckshot Mudder, Or Cooper STT would do you well. As far as the Swampers, mine are 38X12.50X15 and it 37 miles one way to work. A litle bumpy for most folks, but if I see a trail or get a urge on the way home Im ready. You may also want to look at the Kumho KL71. We have been moving a lot of those with no complaints.

I have the km2's and I'm loving them. I have went through quite a bit of mud and they have cleaned great. I had ssr swampers on my expedition before so I know a good mud tire. My km2's are 35/12.5/15. Excellent on the road too!

You may want to check out Hancook's line...I know they are made in China but I recently changed from Cooper (made in the USA) because three out of the five tires were out of round and could not be balanced.

be careful i had the regular geolander, not the mud version, on my jeep when i got it. they were literally the worst tires ive ever had.

Dick Cepek Mud Countrys!

Mud, rocks, highway, trail, creek runs, you name it - they perform!

NHEric 09-17-2010 10:36 AM

I have Trxus MT's. Love em. Great tire in all conditions!

You went mudding in an expedition?

XtrmTJ 09-17-2010 11:50 AM

What, ... No one likes Supper Swampers ? The S/S Bogger is a good mud tire. :D

Hankook tires are Korean and are excellent. I had a set of street tires when I lived overseas and the roads were worse than some trails I've driven, they held up excellent. I'm talking potholes that break CV's when you hit them type of stuff. I'm sure their offroad stuff is just as good if not better.

Rubicon410 09-17-2010 04:21 PM

I run dynapros and love em, I think they look tougher than the BFG's
And the price is so much better, bought my rims and tires through discount tire.
So if you are looking for both they ship the
Mounted and balanced already with free shipping.

BEST MUD TIRE = Boggers but if you drive on road then no.

I've had many from BFG and Mickey's to Dunlop and Discover stt's

For the money I liked my stt's

But my Fav tire of all time was the Mickey Baja Claw radial. Quiet and rode good on road and lasted a good little while.

cru9 09-17-2010 04:28 PM

Bfg km2

IndyJeepMan 09-17-2010 04:49 PM

I wouldnt get mickeys for alot of on road driving. All of their tires wear really quickly because of soft rubber compounds.

tlucado 09-17-2010 06:22 PM

thanks everyone. I appreciate everybodys feedback on the topic!

redneckpilot 09-17-2010 06:38 PM

Haven't seen anybody comment on the Dunlop Mud Rovers yet. Anybody like those?

doughenry 09-17-2010 06:45 PM

If you cant swing the price for the km2s that dont give you any reason to hate on them there bad ass,Ive had baja claws and if your not going bigger than a 35 they suck until there about gone. BFGs km2s compared to claws theres no?km2s rock,mud,road.

andres080 09-17-2010 06:52 PM

What about the Pro Comps?

gooseofdeuce 09-17-2010 08:52 PM

Mastercraft m/t's. I had'm put on my yj in march or so. I love'm. And for the price, 600 installed for 31x10.50 not terribly priced. That was out the door price btw. My jeep is also daily driver except for when working, then its free crown vic, gas, tires, everything.

Tackelbarry 09-17-2010 08:53 PM

I have to agree with Infernogirl. I have the GY Duratracs on my 09 dbl cab 4x4 Tundra and have had it, all 6000 lbs, in 10" mud and not gotten stuck. They just keep churning. Plus, they are one of the few that are actually snow rated with the symbol on the side wall. Important to us because we spend a lot of time in the mountains. I just bought another set for my 2000 Sahara and really like the way they ride. Hope this helps.

doughenry 09-17-2010 08:57 PM

How about the goodyear mtr with kevalar I know when shopping for tires it was either km2s or mtr with kevalar ive heard good things but never seen them in action

tlucado 09-17-2010 09:26 PM

Well if you are looking at those then go to Retread Tires - Buy Retread Tires, Cheap Tires, Off Road Tires, and Retreads Online and look at their version of the mud rover called the Crawler MT. Bought a hundred a piece depending on the size. Kick ass tires I run the guarddog which is the MTR knockoff.
