Mud tires? I drive on paved roads and it doesn't snow here. No need for mud tires on my Tacoma.

Look at the Trxus MT tire by Intercore. I hear they are excellent, and not that spendy either.

I run Goodyear Wrngler MTR's. They are NOT really mud tires.... since true mud tires must not load and be self clearing.... but they work. Most of my jeeping buddies run BFG MT's cause they last a while and they are cheap.... but they (like any dedicated mud tire) are noisy on road and dont last as long as an AT.

Good tires. Pretty decent on the street too. Loud, but they don't flex too band and they are pretty grippy. Not very expensive as mud tires go. Not good for thick mud or mud bogging though, they pack up tight. They also last a hella long time, for that kind of tire.

33x12.5x15 Interco Thornbirds on my '88 Wrangler.

Great road manners with a nice hum on the highway. Great tires for mud ruts.

I'd like to try out the Swamper SSR's, but they are pricey.

One thing to add about BFG MT's.... on slick roads... like wet/oily/icy.... they suck. Like sliding on oiled glass.

Goodyear MT/R on a Cherokee, el Grande. They have about--no shit--50,000 miles on them, but they've gotten louder, and have ridden rougher the more they wear. They look like they'd go 10,000 more miles, but they RLAMF right now.

They do ok in mud, but they are extremely tough.

Very true. I locked up once on a wet road and though I was gonna die.

That said, they make a very nice sound when chirped.

Last year I had ProCrap(Comp) mud tires on my truck.

I upgraded to BFG all-terrains and actually get better traction than I did with the stock street tires and way better than the procrap tires.


BFG all the way. Baja proven.

BFG A/T KO's for the street. Awsome grip in the wet, snow, and ice.

Kumho Venture MT's for the trail. CHEAP, tough sidewall (lotsa sharp rock here), grippy on rock, plows through the mud, and CHEAP. I treat trail tires as a disposable item with the rough use I give 'em, the only trail flats I've had were from nails (A-holes dumping trash).

Wheel it like ya stole it!!

Well, this seems like a good place to throw out a question...

My '99(newer body style) Silverado 4x4 is cutting off on me constantly whenever I go through a somewhat large mudhole. It's the electrical system getting soaked in muddy water and corrects itself after a day or two when it dries out real good. BUT, every time I get it wet it cuts off 5-15 times before it will let me get moving for a good distance, very annoying. Any sort of way to protect my wires and distributor before I go 4 wheeling? I've even considered a snorkle but it wouldn't get me anywhere as the electrical crap would stop me even before I'd have water pouring in the intake.

FWIW, GMs electrical engineers should be taken out and shot.

+1 on the Goodyear Wrangler MTR's.

Over 30k miles on them and they've still got about 1/4-1/3 tread left. Not the quietest meats in the world but definitely not the loudest.

Outside of thick mud (think Georgia clay mud-holes) they grip like frog-feet. Only down side is the lugs don't clear as fast as a true MT. Handle standing water pretty well too.

Cooper Discoverer STT

Very good in the mud, and surprisingly good tread life..

Very noisy on the road, especially after they get some miles on them.
