    I heard that BFG is coming out with a new mud tire somewhat based on the Krawler carcass. It's supposed to have tough side walls like the Krawler, an aggressive tread, and be priced like a normal offroad tire (unlike the Krawler which is premium priced). Any heard or seen anything about this? Sizes?

    I've heard they are switching the design to be more like the crawler too. If you look in the 4WP cataloge they list a mud terrain tire and it looks almost identical to the crawler. I hope it's just another option for the Mud Terrain. I love the current design and wouldn't want the crawler style for a daily driver

    MountainMan,
    Thanks for posting the pic. Now I can see what it looks like. Hmmm......I kinda thought it would be more aggressive looking. It will be interesting to see how street friendly (especially for longevity wear factor - Krawler is very fast wearing on the street from what I've read) they are and how they perform off road.

    I really don't like the new design. I've heard them building up the sidewalls and side lugs like you said but I think the current side lugs look better than the new. My whole feeling is if I wanted Krawlers I would have bought Krawlers.

    Yes, that is the new pattern for the MT's for larger size wheels. We had a set of them for 22" wheels for a show last March. I'll see if I can dig up some pics of them. They were big and heavy. Last word from BFG is that they were ONLY for the large size wheels (20"+) and everything less will stay the way they are. IIRC, the smallest they make works out to a 40" tire.

    Actually kinda reminds me of a Geolander tire.

    Better sidewalls are a definite improvement. I don't like how easy it is to slice 3" long holes in the sidewalls of BFG Muds.

    It would be cool if they offered it with the older style aswell. That way you could try the new one, and still have the older style to fall back on. And if you think about it, it might just lower the old styles pricing.
