Default Mud Tires

I am wanting to try some mud tire on my truck and i started another thread about Toyo MT's. I want a mud tire that i can drive on the highway during the week but can also 4x4 on the weekends. Also i probably would only run them 6 months of the year. So whats the best choice?

BFG KM2s are probably your best bet. They last long are amazing in the mud. The Toyo MTs are also verrry nice tires and will also last long on the road. Stay away from any superswampers.. stay away from Nitto Mud Grapplers. Mickey Thompson tires are good but dont last quite as long as the others or so they say

I had a set of Mickey Thompson Baja Claws / Radials at 35x12.5 and they were a dream. I also didnt have them balanced and they were perfect on the highway, I wanted to see how far they were out and only 3-4 oz per wheel! I would and will get them again! But I'm going bigger

yeah Mickey Thompson Baja Claws are badassssssss IMO... my local truck shop says the wear fast but my friend who has 37x13.5 baja claws on his Rubicon Unlimited Jeep says they don't wear down bad at all... i dunno those are sick tires tho. You can't go wrong with BFG tho.. they might run a little more than everything else but you can find deals on them

I bought these Goodyear Wrangler Territories back in September and am really happy with them great off road traction, shed snow and mud really well and aren't overly loud on the pavement. I find them to be almost in between a mud at AT tire. You can only get them at Canadian Tire, but I see you live in BC so you shouldn't have a problem there! They go on sale every other week as well so you can usually pick them with a buy 3 get one free deal.

They look sick but like the terra grapplers come in a horrible selection of sizes, the dont make the for 15". I was going to buy a set of terra grapplers at first but couldnt use my alcoas so i went with the ones I have. These might be an option when I go to bigger wheels, they are really nice!

I bought some of the nitto's way back when they made a 33 for a 15" wheel, then had to road hazard one and found out i couldn't cause they were no longer available. Made discount swap all four for some mud rovers and haven't thought about at's since. I've had great luck with my maxxis buckshots. Work really well and last a long time for an mt.
