    I need to know if any of you all have tried either the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R or the Dunlap Mudrover Tires, I'm trying to decide on which of the two, I want to purchase. (35x12.50x15) for my 78 Chevy K-1500 4x4. PLEASE HELP!

    Hey ive got the mud rovers and i love them they give a good sound on the road they are pretty loud nuthin to a swamper im sure and they dig good and clean wheel as long as you keep up a good amount of speed. If you wont some pics i got some in my webshots. Oh yeah they run kinda small mine are on 15 10 and i think they measure alittle over 33. I love them though not the best on the street either but what you expect.

    In that class of tire, you might want too look into what Cooper has to offer.

    MT/Rs do come in 40s.

    Me personally, I'd get the Mud Rovers. Mud tires wear fast anyway, and MT/Rs cost a lot more than the Mud Rovers. I'd much rather buy two sets of Mud Rovers and have fresh tires two times than one set of MT/Rs and have to run them longer. Just my personal opinion anyway.

    To me, all radial mud terrains are about equal, and seem to work about the same. MT/Rs work slightly better than most though, and are a very well designed tire.

    Best post I've seen you make in a while. Cooper STTs are a decent tire and cheap too!

    I've got the MT/R's and am VERY happy with them so far. They work GREAT in the snow (not a concern in AZ) and as soon as the ground thaws I will see how they do for me in the mud.

    One thing to consider is the side wall plys. The MT/R's have 3 and use a puncture resistant compound....the Dunlop's do not AFAIK.

    Do a little searching on the 'net......I got Summit to match a price of $166 each on the MT/R's. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
