Try the new Bfg km2. Looks clean, and respond very well in sand mud or rocky terrain. I use my ranger mainly for guiding hunters. I can't afford to get stuck 30 miles from the nearest paved road. These km2 have never let me down.

What are you looking for in a tire? Mud Terrain or All Terrain?

If you go with A/T my vote(s) go for either the BFG or the GY Duratracs

If u go M/T, my vote is either BFG KM2s or GY MTRs

Those Cepek Mud Countrys are pretty good tires I hear...though pretty spendy.


If they made 'em in my size, my next set of tires would be the Goodyear Duratracs. Studless snows/traction tires with a good mix of it being an aggressive a/t, yet mild m/t at the same time.

BUT...you can never do wrong with a set of KM2's. BFG's are among the most popular and widely used mud terrains out there for good reason....Im on my 4 or 5th set of KM's right now actually.
