    Default opinions on mud tires

    ya'll havent let me down yet for advice now lets see opinions on mud tires.

    I am only looking for info on mud related, not rock related. Note, this is for my wife's rig/DD that got no more than 1900 miles put on it in the entire year of 2008. She isnt picky in regards to noise or comfort. She runs GYW MT 33s right now. Semi-okay off road but def. not up to standard on wet pavement. Honestly, a little disappointing for overall cost.

    I say pitbull growlers I got my set and love them. They call them all terrain plus but I would call them a mud terrain. But when you look at their mad dogs their mud terrain you will understand the allterrain plus designation. Down side is the growler is their only radial right npw the rest are bias tires. I'm not 100 positive but I believe the only size radial 31x10.50. Google them and check them out but the pics don't do any justice at all.

    I don't think MT's of any company will work well on wet pavement. My CJ came with Wild Country RVT's, and I'll never buy them again. At 20 mph they started to roar, and at 65 they were almost unbearable, literally at 1' away you would have to scream to each other just to try to communicate. If going under 15 mph, the front end would 'pulsate' from side to side, and not the delightful way. If traveling on wet roads, it was a very scary thing to try to handle, especially in a short wheel base vehicle. They did good to great off road, but like I mentioned, on road left a lot to be desired. BFG MT's get regular thumbs up from people I've talked to that run them. For now though, I'll run their AT's, great on road, and moderate to okay off road.

    I've been running BF Goodrich mud terrains for over 20 years on just about every type of 4x4 out there and they have never let me down. They are a quiet mud terrain compared to most and I've gotten long life out of them.

    I like the BFG Mud Terrains, however, the Mud King is almost the exact same tire and is cheaper. I have run a set of them and really liked them.
    I saw a link to a site on another thread that was talking about them and they were from Summit racing.
