    I have heard MTR's suck in the mud, although I may be wrong and thinking of a different tire.

    I would say BFG mud terrains from your choices but if It was me I would go with the TSL radial or SSR both in a 38x15.50.

    MTR's suck in mud. This is as per peterson's test this month, and my own expierence. Go BFG MT for trails with mud, or TSL's if there is a lot of mud.

    I can't tell you which tire is better, as I have never owned any TSL's. But, I have owned the BFG MT's and Goodyear MT/R's. My MT/R's are only 2 months old, and the ground is still frozen, so I can't tell you yet how they do in the mud. The BFG's did quite well.

    In the snow, my MT/R's grip way better than my BFG's ever did. I was pleasantly surprised when I mashed the gas and the Burb just launched rather than spinning like the BFG's used to.

    As far as Petersen's tests go, here is one that tested at least the 3 you mentioned. The MT/R beat the TSL and the BFG MT. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    After some research and the 4 Wheel Off Road article, I'm planning to go with 35" BFG MT's for the '73 project K5 Ugly. I'll probably put 31" MTs on the Tahoe when the soccer mom Dueler ATs wear out. The combination of good tread, quiet ride and plain old good looks make the MTs the choice for me.

    as far as the test go they said the 31's sucked but back a few months they rated the mtrs 3 in a 35 inch the other two were boggers and tsls
