i over heard a convo with two guys saying they need to get summer tires because the hot asphalt in the summer time will eat up their mud tires(wear down the tread), will it eat up my tires really bad to where i should get a set of summer tires or would it not be that big of a deal and i can run the mud tires all summer?

As long as you're not running them underinflated on the highway and they're not made of an overly soft compound, I don't think they'd wear much faster than anything else.

I have never heard that one before. This ain't NASCAR. Wink

Ditto on what Code said. The same would be true of most street tires. The only exception I could see would be a street/strip tire. The compound in those tires is softer than most, but still not as soft as a straight racing slick.

The only valid reason I could see for swapping them out is that MT's do wear a little more unevenly than an AT or straight radial...but that has nothing to do with road heat. Rotating them more often solves that problem. Rotating the spare in helps even more.

so the buckshots do have a softer compound than say the trxus m/ts or the BFG m/ts?

ok and the heat doesnt have much of an effect on them gotcha

would it be worth it to upgrade to the trxus or the BFGs if they last longer? now im paying $445 for all four buckshots the 265/75s and they mount and balance em too

I'd hate to see the mileage on the Buckshots if the Trxus supposedly wear better. The Trxus are made with a soft rubber and you can really only expect to get 25-30 thousand on them. The BFGs wear great and routinely pull 40-50 thousand with proper balance, alignment, and rotation.

I'm close to 50k with my MTR's and it doesn't even look like I've had them on there for two years!

I call BS. MTRs are a soft rubber also.

I've seen them...they're worn...not worn out, but worn.

When I go to lunch I'll take a pic of them of course it will be with a camera phone so don't hate me over the quality and also I'll try to find my original invoice and find out how the exact mileage on them. I'm getting close to 50K
