Anyone got any opinions on hankook mud tires


Got a guy who might trade my 38"x13x16 rims and rubber

For hankook mud terrain 37x12.50x17 rims and rubber. At 90 percent




Do to poor planning on my part my build is going as fast as i would have liked.

So the tsl's are just not getting the use they should

They kinda look like non directional claws.

it is a more "streetable" tire if you are doing longer trips in the burb

I sell them, and I don't get many repeat customers. I think they look aight, but, meh...Not as cheap as you would think for an offshore tire. Never drivin on one, so can't give you anything on that front. I bet your TSL's are more valuable, but that Hankooks probably will ride better on the road.

TSLs are definetly worth more....the Hankook is one of the cheaper tires in that class....

Your swampers will probably last longer and still be worth something when almost bald and your truck looks bitching on them
So calm down and be patient it will come together

Didnt people tell you in the first place not to bother with the TSLs, as it is a daily driver and will see an FSR once or twice a year :dontknow:

Ya its a tough call really love the tsls.

The hoe will never see the tight root trails the jeep did

And im not a mudding fan.

Just thinking if fsr / pavement and the odd trail is all im going to do maybe i could enjoy a round tire that doesn't shrink on every trip

Why not think about Toyo/Gdyr/Nitto/BFG? They will all last longer, and ride better than that Hankook. Hankook has come a long way in the last few years, but still not a "4x4" tire I would run. I put the car tires on my mom & dad's car, as well as my sister's, they are a decent brand, just not a "4x4" tire I would run....yet.

Im pretty confident i could get 1200 for my tsls.

I think i payed 13 something + tax

I would be surprised if they have more than 2k on em.

If i got that it would only be 300 more to go bf muds in a 37

I wound go with the Hankooks either the MT tread compound seems way to soft



I'll shoot ya a price on the MTR if ya want but it's a 37 in a 17" rim they don't do it in a 16

Or there's always 40s in a 17 too :D and I believe a 38.5 as well but all 17"

I don't think the claws will wear as good on a heavier truck though
Seen them on a short box chevy daily driver weekend wheeler
Be done in a year

I bought some nitto trail grapplers and I love them they have a E load rating and are ten ply. they might be worth looking at!

Just stick with the swampers and get the truck done at your own speed , nothing beats the look of a swamper on a lifted truck :D

I had the MTRs on the avalanche and I wasn't impressed that's why I went with the toyo's this time . The older version of the MTR's were a much better tire IMO

I had a set of them on my duramax, I somehow peeled a big chunk of tread off one of the tires, so I got rid of them, I have the
Dynapro a/t's on my ford and I like em,

For u tuna, I would run the A/T's since u never auctually do any wheeling, :D

Or donk that hoe, 30" rims with low pros lol

My buddy had a set of claws on his 97z71 step side , bought them brand new, never really wheeled with the truck and they wore out after about a year and a half of 150k a day driving to and from work :dontknow:

The Baja Claws are a great tire but all the reviews state they wear very well on I lighter truck but not so well on a heavier one . They state in the reviews with heavier trucks expect about 30,000 to 40,
000 KMS max if your doing a lot of highway commuting mileage may vary.

I had claws once. Sucked unbelievably hard in snow, and rain. Definitely not a good daily driver tire.

Think of the sidewalls, those hankooks are gonna get slashed on the first trail you take your beast on. Keep the TSL's or sell them. I got 35's in the MTR flava for $1400 installed from Dalton @ Tires Plus
