could you please tell me what are some of the best 35" mud tires that have a long tread life and are at a reasonably good price.

Re: what is the best 35\" mud tire at a good price

I'm running Super Sport Radials HT's 35 X12.5 from Wal-Mart. They were only $118 per tire and I put certs on them for and additional $10 per tire! Ya Certs, Rotation and balancing and if I screw them up offroad, they fix them. They are prorated for wear and do have a disclaimer saying they won't fix a tire that has been cut in an accident or abused. Yet they are selling this tire for offroad use. I thnk they would have to stand behind the warrenty. Most places do not offer certs on off road tires. $643 got me out the door with 5 tires, tax and certs!

If you are looking for good cheap tires then the newspaper is the place to look. Lots of people have good used tires for cheap. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if I ran on used rubber forever. There always seems to be a deal out there if you look for it.

I found a 4wd place near me that swaps tires. They'll give you $$ off a new set in exchange for your used set. That's how I got my new 35's. I'll probably go back after about 20,000 mi. on these to exchange or buy a decent used set. Call around to local shops to see if anyone near you does this.

I would say either Goodyear MTR or Ground Hawgs are the best 35" with long tread life. Swampers are by far the best, but the tread life isn't so long.

Re: what is the best 35\" mud tire at a good price

I am sadly going to have to replace my dunlap mud rovers next week. They have lasted 5 years eventhough my bronco is my daily driver! They have worn evenly and just recently became noisy. I have been quoted $140 a tire to replace them, but I'm pumping the good ol' boy network and should be able to drop that another $20/tire. Gotta have friends in all the right places! [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] They are great mud tires as far as road manners are concerned and are quite capable in the gooey stuff. As stated before - swampers and boggers can't be beat as long as you stay off the highway, but if you drive on the blacktop as well then the mud rovers may be a more affordable alternative to the goodyear MT/R's. All depends on how much you have to spend. Have any of y'all seen the new dayton mud tire that looks just like the MT/R's but with sidebiter-looking lugs extending down the sidewalls? They don't make 'em in 35's though - I was going to try 'em. The choices in 35's are growing slim. Is something going on in the tire industry? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
