ever watch top truck challenge?
those yokohamas have some of the crappiest sidewalls i have ever seen. they tear extremely easy. i wouldn't run them on anything bigger than a mini truck.
mickey thompson makes a hell of a tire, and has always made some of the toughest tires you can get. the reason you see so many of a certain other brands tires on extreme wheelers, racers and comp rigs is because they have a strategy of racer support (read: nearly free tires) as a means to dominate the market. it works, but that doesn't necessarily mean there aren't much better choices out there. i just wish mickey thompson offered a broader range of sizes in the big tire range, i have been more than happy with the performance of my ATZ plus tires, the Fun Country IIs my dad has, and all they mickey t/dick cepek tires i've seen on the trail.
My point. And to be honest, They are 54" Baja TTC's. Jesus, if there was a wrangler mtr in 54" i'm sure it would pull through some shit too. or even 46" baja claw bias. they are 46". None the less its still a mud tire, I'm not saying its a crappy BFG A/T, but again, certainly much better choices out there. sand, snow and rock sure baja claws are awesome. For mud, no doubt would I take a 44" tsl over a 46" baja claw anyday. Probably even the 54" TTC claw.
here is a pic of the TTC (which no lie, if I had a crawler rig would be my better choice between this 54 and a 54" bogger but only because of the sidewalls, and extreme amount of voids, though not all are that big)
now compare to a 54" bogger, for mud, look at these lug voids - the size from 3rd lug to 3rd lug is about 18" by my guesstimate. compared to TTC's which are about 9"
not downing TTC's as a whole, but just because they sponsor top truck challenge doesn't mean diddly dick. I'd take boggers over the TTC's anyday. TTC's still use a 3-stage lug design, but certainly isn't as wide voided as boggers. You can see they clean out, but not well....
89 Eddie Bauer - 6" RC Lift, 35" KO's, 302/c6 swap, Ford 9"
79 F250 Ranger Lariat - 9" Lift, 40" Ground Hawgs, 400/435/205, D60/D70 LOCKED
