    I have run them. They are shorter than most 35's, but wear good on the highway. I would buy them again for a rig that saw alot of highway use.

    I have heard they are a pretty decent tire, except for the fact they don't measure the true 35" or fairly close. I heard they are actually around 34" or so. I was looking into running them, but I need the full height. Other then that I would have bought them.

    I had some 35-12.50's, they seemed to be a pretty good tire, but I only use my truck off-road and they didn't have an aggressive enough tread pattern for me. What will your truck be used for mainly ?

    I read an article in one of the four wheel mags awhile back saying the Dunlop mud rovers were terrible in the mud.

    I ran them once on one of my rigs. I was not too impressed with their mileage/wear, plus I seemed to always get flats with them. They were also louder than my BFG's. The sidewalls also seemed a little weak.

    They performed well in the mud for me, but they had their problems.

    My .02,
    John

    The mud kings i had lasted for a LONG TIME. i had the truck for about 20K (80K to about 102K) before i sold them and got these. The tread on the Kings are HARD! So the do not mold on the rocks. I did not try them in Mud but i do think they would work good.
    If i would not have found a good deal on these 35s that i have, i was thinking about getting the 35 Mud Kings.
    Last i did know a guy with a Heep that put 65K on a set if Mud Kings (33s) and did most City driving. They are a good CHEEP tire.
