    I ran them for about a year on the street with no problems. I had their 35x12.5 mud brute. Really quiet and smooth on the road but never had the chance to take it offroad.

    No personal experience myself with them... but I have seen a lot of Jeeps around here with them..... I looked into gettting a set but got the mudkings instead because they had them in stock that day. But most of the Jeeps I do see all look like they do off-road. Not just some pavement pounder someones daddy bought for them for a graduation gift... I know Jeeps are a different species but I thought I'd mention that at least I have seen people who have them and seem to off road with them and they must work because they still are running them....

    Yeah, the Mud Brute is basically the same as the Dunlop mud rover. I haven't had any, but I have had a couple sets of the Wide Brute RV's that I've been happy with. I used to work for a distributor and don't remember hearing any complaints about them.

    I have the Wide Brutes on mine and the only problem I have had was some torn side wall threads on the front tire. But I thing that rock over there, that I hit doing about 20 mph, had a lot to do with it!! I am very happy with them and plan on contenuing to run them.
