re: Best mud tires for the price


The mt claws and whatever that all terrain version is, are directional, very soft compound. I had 35" had to rotate about 1 time at lease every month and they still got all out of wack with regualar road use. Liked the tire, hated the wear and road life

not going to find many cheap anymore unless you go with a aftermarket knockoff, some of those are good but there are not any web sites to do research on before, more than likely you will have never heard the name of them before you buy them, Interco has the swamper line that has alot of different options and sizes that can go from one end of the price spectrum to the other, a biased ply tsl might be cheaper but you may not get much road life out of it.

running those now, if it wasnt for the price tag I would consider getting more in the next few months when I have to replace them.

I don't like the new KM2s on hard packed wet clay roads. Slide all over the place. Not the biggest fan of them in straight mud either.


Mickey Thompson MTZs are cheaper than KM2s from what I just looked up. You can always get SSRs. They are some serious tires. Ride well on the road, pull hard in the mud, but are just loud

Currently I am running 33" BFG's. They have little over 20k on them with plenty of tread left. Will not buy them again simply because of the price. Thinking about going to General Grabbers. I can get them for $197 at Tire Rack

Mine will be wearing those for it's next set if I don't have something else to drive. If I do have something else to drive, it's getting boggers

Maybe I had bad set, but mine were terrible. I got maybe 30k on a 1/2 ton Chevy and I kept them rotated/aligned. I had a few chunks of tread break off too, but that was probably my fault.


Have about 25K on mine and they are just about finished. They were rotated ever 3k. Now very loud tire. But, one hell of a pulling tire in the mud. Jeep Cherokee that is very lite.

IMHO, the TSL tread pattern is better than Boggers in everything except going straight in clay. I was extremely happy with mine and I had them on a V6 Tacoma. Pick them up in Rayne for prices cheaper than anywhere, and they will mount/balance them for free. Weird thing was the main Interco hq only had floor jacks to change tires, and the building looks like a big shed.


Here I am the week they got their first shipment of 54s. I am about 6ft





Am I the only one who barely rotates tires? My last set got rotated once in 40k. I had BFG ATs that got rotated twice in 75k. Always turn out with perfect wear

BFG ATs. I actually got tired of them and game em to a buddy to put on his work truck. He used them for another 10k and gave them to his grandpa. He used them for another 3k and someone stabbed the sidewall.

Originally on a single cab 4cyl Tacoma that weighed about 10 pounds

Quit hot roddin everywhere showing off.

I have a 7500lb truck and get more out of mine with softer mud tires. Probably 3k was pulling trailers in excess of 12,00lbs. Around 5k was off-road though

re: Best mud tires for the price


If you're gonna pay upwards of $300 per, check out the Dick Cepek offerings. Can sometimes get em for 225ish in a smaller size like what you're getting. Most quality mud tires won't be available in anything smaller than a 31 or 33 inch.


I had some Cepeks and still got a decent price when I sold them. On my Bronco I'm running the Kevlar MTR's. I've been happy with them, I'm gonna have to buy a new set if it gets really bad this winter and I'll probably go with them again.
