    I am considering buying 35x12.50R15 Pro Comp mud tires. If anyone is running them please let me know how you like them.

    Hell, I'll answer it.

    I have had them for over a year now. They arent too loud (cant hear over exhaust) and ride pretty smooth. I have only had them out a couple times, as I have a lot of down time on the truck, but in sand they did well, on the trail I went on they did pretty good. The trail was mild with on small hills and a few rocks. In mud they packed up fairly easily and cleaned up fair after a good mash of the skinny pedal.

    I have the 35x12.5R15 and may be upgrading by the end of the year.

    2 of my friends run them. Both have 33"s, one is on a crewcab longbed Dodge with the Cummins, the other on a '90 K5. They both have been real happy with the tires, and they seem to get good mileage out of them. I think there's a thread in the vendor forum where one of the vendors was gonna run the buy 3, get 1 free deal in March (plus free shipping).

    I really like the mud terrains. Great all around tire. I had the x terrains nice tire till it snowed and then the were a little scary. But the muds are great.

    A guy that works at the local 4x4 shop told me the exact same thing today. Said his were almost brand new but he replaced them with MT MTZ's after the first time he ran the X Terrains in the snow.

    I've been running them for a few months on my 89 'burb and I love em. I have 33's on 16's and they have been great for towing (42psi), snow wheelin (8psi), dirt & mud trail (12psi), DD (35psi) and sand (10psi). They are wearing good. The only problem is I ran 10psi on the road for like 100 miles and the secondary lugs on the outside of the tread on the fronts took a beating. I rotated and aired up to a sane pressure and I think they will recover.

    I am planning to go to 35's on 18's this summer if I can afford it. I like the look and the load rating of that tire for towing. And that is what this DD 'burb is used most for.
