That would be a big NO!


They may be a decent rock tire, but I witnessed today that they dont work in mud. They dont self clean at all.

Just a observation Shocked

Having a tire with a similar pattern, I can tell you that mine suck when trying to back up in less than optimal conditions. Confused

Forward or backward thoses didnt do well in mud. The guys entire setup was terrible. To bad too.....it was on an 03 Rubi w/3" longarm BDS lift. I dont know how something so common could get so screwed up. His BDS was professionally installed and didnt appear to give more than a couple inches of lift. And due to some vibes, it took almost 2" lowering of the allready horribly low Tcase "shovel" skid....yes 2"......shyikes! to remove the vibes. I didnt get a pic of that, but it was sad. The poor guy got stuck alot in places that I just slogged my way through. Neutral

Cripes man Shocked , that's some muddy buildup. I don't think the tires on my old Daytona gunked up like that when I ventured down a some muddy fire roads rofl . I don't do much mud myself, but like to think I'd be able to get outta something if I needed to with the BF's I'm running.

You know, as much as people say that the BFG MT is an old pattern, I still think it's one of the best mud tires I've seen that were still very comfortable on road. I've wondered about those particular tires because I keep seeing Pro-Comp tires on all the rigs in the magazines and websites but no one ever says whether or not they're good in the mud.

Boggers on rocks=bad (see below). boggers in mud=excellent.
XT's on rocks=excellent. XT's in mud=iffy (See below).

Have both. Run both, depending on what I'm doing. Boggers can hold well on rocks, if you feel like either paying the money or taking the time to sipe the treads. The default tread pattern has no lateral grip on rocks. As for XT's in the mud, it depends on the mud. I've never had a problem in really wet mud, but in thick, heavy mud they don't self clean well enough. However, I don't go for mud all that often.
