I have mud kings and they are HORRIBLE! Bad wet traction(hydroplaning) due to no siping. They go well in mud and the tread lasts a long time...just farewarning the wet traction part

in all fairness not many mud terrain tires do very well on wet pavement, to sipe tires like that means they will chunk if you spin your tires on rocks or even rough pavement. siping can be good for some cars, but not trucks that wheel.

there are a few tires with some light siping or more like grooved tires lol, but not what people need in a mud terrain. the bfg does well on wet pavement, but its not the highest performing off road. its a good medium. and believe me im not talking down on them, i have them and they hook up really well.

Maxcis is in ur family n u like them just check out yhe new trepador. Its a pretty a gressive vtread design. Lots of reviews on it. I personnaly hae buckshots. Lasted me 6 months if that. Cooper discoverer stt is a good lasting tire the kuhmo kl71 wears real quick. The bfg km2 is great all around. And you get em around 200. I'm curious tho how do u like the bighorns and wat kind of life u get out of them.

ima stick with bighorns when i size up. im on a tight budget, so im tryin to minimize spending. heres wat ive laid out: 4 bighorns (285/75/r16) from jegs is about 732 bucks total, flowmaster original 40 is bout 80 bucks, 150 for a bl, and 20 bucks for a turndown after the muffler. in total its about 982 bucks. that aint too bad of a budget plan if ya ask me
