    It's spelled Regul. I had a set of 35 inch Regul Trail Blazers on a truck about 20 years ago. They did awesome in the mud and held up very well. I found some pictures on the net at http://www.4x4shop.net/WebSite/Regul.htm . It doesn't look like they offer the tread design that I had back then, but the M/T looks pretty similar to a BFG Mud-Terrain. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I know of several jeeps that run them in S.C. They never had any problems. I called a friend up to see how long he has had his and its been 3 years. His only comments was that they are fairly hard...and he has to keep them aired way down off road. He also said that if you use them in rain, Sipe them. Hope that helps. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I have had mine for over 3 years and put over 30,000 on my
    33x12.50x15's. Great tires! I never rotated them like
    you're suppose to, also.
    Money well spent!

    We really push the Reguls hard down at the shop. They are a great, inexpensive tire, which makes them so appealling to our customers. After all, most of our customers drop a lot of change lifting their IFS trucks (parts plus labor).

    We have had no problems with any of the Reguls.
