Mud tires

I am going to buy some 235/75/15 mud tires in the next couple of weeks and am looking at some tires in town that are very similar to BF's M/T but quite cheaper thn the BF's.

My question is if TSL super swamper radial tires are alot more agressive than BF mud terrain's ??.

The tsl's are a little more expensive and are about 4 hours away from home.Just wondering if it is worth it.

Thanks

Steven

Re: Mud tires

TSL's are great for offroad but they do wear down faster on the road. I have some boggers on mine that I use for the trail and some BFG AT that I use for street use. Just my .02

Re: Mud tires

the interco site says the TSL radials are "the most agressive small truck radials ever developed" or something like that.

Other than that, just compare tread patterns and decide for yourself.


are these tires actually for mud or what?

Re: Mud tires

I have run two sets of General Grabber MT's on two different vehicles with great success, both sets cost about $20 less per tire than the BFG Mud terrains.

Also check out the April 2004 issue of 4Wheel Drive & Sport Utility magazine - they have a tire & wheel buyers guide.

Re: Mud tires

Bridgestone's Dueler MT 671's were the first mud tire I ran . They lasted forever and I even gave them to my B/L for his S10 pickup . I bet they had 65k before he let the air pressure get low and destroyed them . They always did have great traction even until almost bald ....

Re: Mud tires

I agree with Sarge; I had a set of 31" Dueler MT's that were both cheap and great on and off-road. Considering of course. I only got rid of them to make the move to some 33's I had collecting dust [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Mud tires

These are the tires that the local dealer has at a good price.They are Kumho Venture M/T's.I'd geuss to say that i drive about 50/50 street and trail but i love the look of an agressive tire.Since i drive alot on logging roads i need a tire that is flat proof.That is why i am leaning more with the local dealer,if ever i blow one up i will not have to go far for another.

Thanks for the help.

What do you guys think of this tire ??

Re: Mud tires

I have heard alot of good things about those tires. What kind of trails do you run? Nothing will beat a super swamper in the mud holes though. I assume since your only going with 235's deep mud isnt your thing. So those tires probably would work great.

Re: Mud tires

I've got nothing but good things to say about my Cooper Discoverer STT's. They aren't even half worn after nearly 3 years of daily driving and trails ranging from mud to rocks (This is on a light Samurai however).
The traction when aired down is great and the road noise on the street and highway isn't all that bad considering it's a MT.
They are also cheaper than BFG's in my neck of the woods.
HTH
FWIW, I know a couple of guys who've run the Kumho's and really liked them>

Re: Mud tires

You won't be disappointed with those Kumhos. Two of the guys in our group run them, one runs 31's and the other runs 35's in the MT. They pull very well, wear great, they're not that loud. Really good tires, especially for the price.
