Decent tire. the only complaint I have heard about them is price and sidewalls. Tires are a hell of allot cheaper in the states even with our piss poor dollar. No envirofees too.

I would not use them. 2 of my friends have them on there trucks (F350 and a Cummins 3500) and they are both complaining that they wear FAST!!! I have been using 35" Mickey Thompson MTZ on my daily (3500 Cummins) and they have been a pretty good tire I have had them on there for 2 years and around 50K and they are now at 25% tread. They are also alot cheaper than the BFG's so I will be using Mickey Thompsons again.

any mudder on a 1 ton diesel wears real fast... 30,000km if lucky.. thats a pretty shitty measure of a tire performance... we see the same tire get 70,000 plus on LT's and Suv's... one of my cust runs em on his 2500 dodge gas 8inch lift gets 45,000 out of em,, id say thats a good deal for $860

i was reading four wheeler and they did a test of 3 tires, the hankook dynapro atm rf10, toyo open country a/t, and bf goodrich all terrain t/a ko, now i know u were asking about a mud terrain, but this lil test four wheeler did said the hankook dynapro atm rf10 was the best tire, dunno how much they are though, just my 2 cents

does it have to be a mud tire? if you want a tire that lasts long look into the michellin`s (SP?) 14 ply tires, but there not good in the mud or rock, otherwise i would run a ltb on my dd,

I have them on my Cruiser in the 37" flavour. They are just about 1 year old, and look almost brand new. Yes, I wheel them, but it's on my daily driver. Very quiet on the street, and I never did bother to balance them. I've cut the sidewall on the old style before, but these ones I haven't had a problem yet.
So far, I'd buy them again.
