    Mudzilla's I'd like opinions on these tires. I know they only make them upto a 35" tire, but I might have to settle. I'm looking at the 35x13.50x15LT 's. Nebraska Tire ( 402-791-5862 ) out of Lincoln, Ne. quoted me a price of $179.99 each. What's y'all's opinion ???

    They don't look bad. 13.5 wide is kinda cool.
    I didn't look on their site, is that the same maxxis that makes ATV razor?

    their creepy crawlers look nice too, they are coming in 37x12.50 but not till closer to the end of the year and my tire purchase isn't far off. Oh well.

    [/ QUOTE ] The guy I talked to said they'll out last Superswampers. He said they sell those as well, and the Maxxis last longer.

    How long have the Mudzillas been available? I doubt long enough to make this statement. They would have to have been out for 2-3 years to support this claim; I believe they are <1 year old.

    Mabey that guy drove with Swampers on the highway for 20,000 miles and then drove the Mudzillas 20,000 miles and Zilla had more tread left on then the drag slick swampers... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    I'm aware how to compare tire mileage/longevity, but thanks for the refresher. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I question wether or not the Mudzillas have been out/on a rig long enough to wear them to a point where a legitimate comparison can be made. Or better yet, several sets of Mudzilla on different rigs.

    I don't think they have adn that was the first thing I though of when he said that. Could have had the tires for a bit now testing too though. Still don't think its enough. Could easily have put on enough miles to wear out a set already though.

    I'd have to see the wear characteristics of several sets on a couple differently configured rigs before I started selling the benefits of their longevity in comparison to another mud tire.

    That's just what the guy said. I do like the look of them. Just wish they came in 37's.

    Just wondering if y'all think the Mudzilla LT's would be good in a mountan/forest area. Lots of mud and rocks.

    Maxxis is the company that produces Buckshot Mudders. Buckshot has a reputation for good mud slinging super skinny tires that wear like iron. If these new offerings offer that same thing, I dont know, but it'll be interesting to see.
