Tolerable "cheap" mud tires...

Postby WD » Tue Jan 19, 2016 1:43 pm

Had a set of LT265/75R16E mounted up. Truck in 2wd went through 10" deep mud, a seasonal creek full of water, and up a 30* inline without issue or any throttle pressure.

Adventuro model radial gt mt. Would prefer a USA made bias ply, but could get these on my farm account with the local co-op.

No idea on highway manners, truck has a bad transmission. Will run 65 in 2nd gear but prefer not to do that. May find out tomorrow, supposed to snow here tonight. Only a couple inches, but folks here have enough issues on dry pavement. The tractors won't start when it is this cold, so the truck has to be the wreck dragger for my neighborhood.
If I didn't build it, it ain't mine.

Looks like a very good tire for off-road, will be interested to see how they behave on highway...

I had a set of those on my Jeep before some upgrades/updates, never got a chance to truly test them, but they lower cost, rode well and looked to be a good choice. Glad they do the job.

Can hear them over 3" true dual exhaust running cheap glasspack mufflers... And with an extra tall air filter and flipped lid. :pale

Wife can hear the exhaust 1/2 mile from the house. She can hear the tires from a LOT farther away.

Transmission shop owner said he could hear me coming for 5 minutes before the truck was in sight. :lol:

Good farm tires. Atrocious on the highway. At max sidewall inflation, they still squirm. A lot.

Next time I'll order either Gateway bias Buckshots or STA Super Traction bias ply mudders. Just have to choose whether I want 31", 32" or 35" tall.
If I didn't build it, it ain't mine.
