Remington Mud Brutes???

OK, i know this tire questoin thing is being beaten into the ground, but.... I haven't heard anything about the Remington Mud Brutes. Anyone have any experiance w/ them??? Milage, sidewalls, rock performance (dont get to play in the mud much in So Cal), etc. I've heard about the Cooper STT's, BFG Muds, Even the Dunlop Muds. Any other tire i should consider?? FYI, I'm looking for 33ish tires preferably on the wide side (sorry tex).
Thanks for the help
BJ


BTW, Buckshot Q78's are like 36" tall right, do they make any 33-34" tires???

to hell with it, lets go wheelin'

Re: Remington Mud Brutes???

<font color=purple>I've seen some locals with Remington's, but not so much in action. We had one guy come to a race with a set, but they were well-worn & didn't do well. Surely would have done better in new condition, but how much, who could say? And again, this is mud, so no real reference for you anyway.

As to the Buckshots, P78's are basically a 33X10 & there is a radial version (I want to say 275/85R15) that approximates that size as well. No "wide" Buckshots. Oh, & the Q78's are actually listed as being 35.5X11 with a true height of 35" (so, taller than a "35", but shorter than a "36").</font color=purple>

Re: Remington Mud Brutes???

I currently am running 33x12.50 Remington Mud Kings, These tires seem to be working very well in mud and rocks, and about 18" of fresh snow with about 6 psi. The only draw back to these tires that I see right now is the 2 ply side wall. As soon as these things wear out, (I have to keep replacing tires due to sidewall damage) I will go back to the BFG Mud Terrain. The Remington also has a good tread wear and long life, (for the ones I have not had to replace). I thought I would try these not for price, just a few $$$ different from BFG, but they looked like a good tire. For mud and snow I guess they are just a weak side wall in rocks. They clean very well and the noise is not bad for an aggressive tread style.

Re: Remington Mud Brutes???

Thanks for the info you 2. I like being the 1st person around to try something, and EVERYONE out here has BFG's, so it looks like the Remingtons, If i can get a good warranty, or those P78's (Jeep on stilts). Anyone have more suggestions???? I'd love some SSR's, but my wallet doesn't like them right now.

Thanks Again

Re: Remington Mud Brutes???

Right now I have 31x10.5 Mud Brutes. They are great tires! The sidewall isn't extremely flexible, but really strong. The mud performance astually leaves something to be desired. In wet mud, they do great, but clog up with dryer stuff really fast and take alo tof spin to clean. The road performance is very good. Mine were on the Cj-7 when I bought it. I think ther is something like 20k on them, and they are holding up really well. I haven't had any problems at all, but they are a might loud.
About the rocks, Mine have never touched a rock bigger than a dime, so I'm not sure. The rubber is pretty hard though so I don't think they would be too good.
I haven't ever seen anyone else with them or ever seen them for sale. Hope this helps.
