    Depends on what you run. They are not all that good in the mud compared to almost any Swamper.

    They are great for sand and snow, not much of a deep tread for mud though. Also Mickey's daughter had a speed shop here in Eugene and one of his trucks was in it, it was one that had burned.
    I would love to have the M/T classic II's for my jeep. too nice a rim for the Willy's,LOL

    Had 35x14.5's for almost three years. They were great tires off-road. took me everywhere I needed to go with the right amount of air they went through it all. If you drive alot of street miles though they will not last!

    I'm running the 38.5 claws and absolutly love them. They are the best rock tire i've run. Yes even better than Boogers. They do not however mud as good as Boogers. They are still quite good but thread isn't wide enough to sling the mud out really good.

    Watch out for irregular tread wear, other than that, they are a great tire that's actually pretty quiet.
