Default What is the best DD mud tires?

Going to have to get new tires for my 85 Ranger 4x4 soon. I have Powerkings on it now but they are old and were already wore out when I bought the truck.

I was thinking about getting Maxxis Buckshot tires if they make them for 29 x 15lt rims..



Any ideas what to get?

My bad shoulda read that. Im not sure if you can get these in that size. And for some reason i think the smaller sizes are more expensive then the larger on them anyway

Michelin LTX isn't a very aggressive tire, friend had 3 sets of them on a nissan 4x4, and 4 sets on a ZR2 S-10 he off roads often... but the seller is he got 80,000 miles per set.. now that's awesome...

There's really no "best dd mud terrain" because everybody has their preference.

What are you looking at spending? That's a good way to start shopping for tires.

30x9.5R15. They will fit. It's hard to find 29s.

Nitto Dune Grapplers. got 3 friends with them on thier trucks (a ranger, titan and f-250) they look sick, handle amazing off road and on the road, nearly no "wawawawawa" sound. if I had the money, they would be on my truck.
