    anyone run buckshot mudders on their 16''rims? I run 36supertsls and i can air down to single digits without busting a bead. Could a buckshot mudder do this? Do they last long? they are cheaper than swampers and come in a 36 or so metric.

    Who carries them (can't seem to find a place)? Just wondering cuz I was thinking of new tires on the spring and this brand caught my eye (I saw a set on a Bunco that looked way cool).....

    I had PR 78-16 Buckshots. They are the same as the 265-85-16. They are a true 33" tall when new. I had them on a trashy set of white spoke 16x8" with no safety beads and I ran 20 pounds in the mud without ever losing a bead. Probably could have gone lower. If' I'd had safety beads, I am sure I could have run 10 with no problems, maybe less.

    What size are you going to run? that is going to have a lot to do with how low you can go on the pressure.

    Well if I can find them in town cool. But no way am I doing the mail order thing. Don't wanna pay shipping and I don't like the idea of being able to go to the shop if there's a problem.....

    Those Buckshot Mudders are a narrow tire.
    I thought about them, but they'd look silly on the truck.

    I saw the 36er's on 16x10 rims on a Ford F250 in Off Road and in 4x4 Power (same truck) and I thought they looked pretty good. The price seems pretty good too, and I've heard they do last fairly long.
