    Has anyone run mud king tires :dunno:

    I just picked up a full set of them , 33X12.5 X15"s thet are about 80% tread and was wondering how they were on a 4X4 for daily driving / mud trails

    It was too good a deal to pass up because they are on brand new 15" X8" white spoke rims , with centres and locking lugs :grin:

    All with a full size spare for $90.00 :woot:

    My burb had 33 x 12.5 x 15 Mud Kings on it when I bought her. They only had about 100 miles on them and I've prolly put close to 90K miles on them in 3 yrs and still have better than 1/2 tread. They hardly wear, but are a soft ride and I haven't had any troubles with them in the little bit of wheelin that I've done.

    I had bought a set from a shop CHEEP someone ordered them never picked up, I ran them on a 69 chev 3/4 ton plow truck, tow rig and daily driver. I ran these hard could not were them out. I just wish they made them bigger.

    They are on my DD/weekend wheeler, on the road I run mine around 40psi and aired down to 25ish psi for the light wheeling that I usually do.

    I have the Sport Kings , same , just AT . This brand of tire is made by BFG , as a generic brand for smaller vendors ( or so the 4x4 shop Desert Rat says so ) .

    These things wear nice , and after a year looks like new :D

    My brother had some 31x10.50 mud kings on his rig for 5 years (It got rolled and put away for 2) and they lasted a hell of a lot longer than i thought they would. Respectable performance off road and they wear like iron. There were a couple times where i thought they shouldn't have gotten stuck but still a good tire.

    When I went to EJS this past year, the guy I was riding with had 33" Mud Kings on this Jeep.... I gotta admit, they didn't do bad at all!! I'd pick up a set if I could find 'em (I need a set of used 33's for my DD).

    man i thought mud kings were pieces of crap. i've never run them, but they looked like just another cheapo mud tire. i figured they'd wear real bad or something.

    you guys have me totally turned around on them. i'll prolly buy them for mud tires on my sammi. i like that they wear god. that's a big factor for me. my truck is light so that'll help too. can you guys give me a link to a website that has sizes and prices for them?

    Just another vote for the Kings. I had a set of 35s on my Blazer and they did quite well, even after they were wore out.

    Yet another vote for them.
    I ran 31x10.50.15 Mud King's on my Jeep for 2 years (then my Jeep got stolen) and never had any problems with the tires. More than once, I ran the sidewall against a rock or a tree and actually cut the sidewall, but it never leaked or had
    any serious problems. I had put roughly 10k miles on them, rotated them 3 times in that 10k, and all 4 tires had only worn about 2/32". Spare of course, was still brand new.
    I got a set of 5 of these from a small local shop for $395 + tax. Not a bad deal considering BFG MT's in the same size would've run me about $600 or more.

    yup, a couple of buddys of mine have been running the 35's since high school and they are still on the same set and they still have alot of tread left and do respectable in the mud, plus they are cheap :thumb:
