Mud King Tires

I was wondering if any of you have had experiences with Mud King tires. They look similar to Super Swamper SSR'S. I called Northwest tire [a local dealer] and they stock them in a 285/75R16. Do they stock them in a 295/75R16? What kind of road characeristics do they offer [both on and off]? I am seriously looking into getting a set for my truck, as I live down a seasonal road. I don't mean a gravel seasonal road either. I've sunk my truck up to the bumpers driving down my road. I usually haul fire wood on our 40 acres, and other's property. I may run them year round, or I may get another set of AT's for the winter. I can get the tires for about $120 with mounting them myself. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Mud King Tires

Mud Kings are great tires. I had them in 265 on my truck. I got over 40k by keeping them maintained and taken care of.

Re: Mud King Tires

I have a set now on my Samurai and have several buddies who have had em'...seems I remember my one buddy getting about 40k out of his too.....and he wasn't real easy on them.

For the money I think they are a good tire and would buy them again....

Re: Mud King Tires

They are a good tire for the price. It's been many years since I have run any, but I ran at least 2 sets back in the early to mid 90's.

Re: Mud King Tires

Anyone know if they make them in a 35x11.5-16? A buddy of mine has some Mickey Thompson Baja claws on a '91 K2500 w/no lift. Yes they clear no problem he ran out of gas on a hill out back and parked. I went out and checked it, and no rubbing at all. If I did this I was going to do a 2" body lift too. Any other suggestions? Thanks.
