Hey guys im in need of some tires, and I was wondering what ones I should get, I have a qoute from goodyear for 588.03. the tires theyll be getting me are Dunlop Rad MUD River 31-10.5 R 15 I liked the tread on em pretty nice.
Most of my driving will be street, but I will be taking it into mud/snow.

Give me some reccomendations :thumbup

The Mud Rover's are good tires, but if these are for the street why get a mud tire? A BFG AT would be a good choice for a 80% Street/20% offroad. A better choice would be a knockoff of the BFG AT like the Street King AT. Cheaper and basically the same tire. Great mileage out of the tires too.

Just my thoughts though.

i just got some mud rovers yesterday for my 78. 33 x 12.50. they are awesome. i have not got to use them in the mud yet though, but i've heard they do pretty well. they arn't too loud either and a hell of a lot cheaper than bfg mt's.

i paid 140 for mine before mounting and balancing. my truck is stock and the 33's dont rub at all, at least just driving on the road. 33 is the height of the tire and 12.50 is the width

I bought 285/75/16 mastercraft at's for my chevy. They were 115 mounted and balanced each.
On my bronco I bought 35/12.50x15 mastercraft mt's for 135 mounted and balanced each. I have 30k on the at's and they are wearing great and around 5k on the mt's and they seem to be holding up well also.

I have 31X10.50r15 dunlop mud rovers on my truck. They are about 1 month old. Got them for 470 with tax, mounting, and balancing for the life of the tire @ Sams Club. I am very happy with them. They still work great on the highway and roads even with the aggresive tread. They work great in mud and in rocks, have tested them a lot already. They are pretty good in snow. They arent too loud, and they ride pretty smooth. They are a really good value and even if you are 80% road and 20% offroad i still recomend it. Youll have more fun during that 20%.

Check out www.tirerack.com, they have the mud rovers for $101 a tire. Maybe goodbeer can match it, discount tire usually does.

I'm beginning to hate AT's, I can't return to having MT's. I about got stuck on a muddy level B road tonight (in 2WD mind you, and my light flareside bed doesn't help), which would have been easy with my old MT's I had. Glad I have these just for the winter.

I've got 4 Dunlop mud rovers 33x12.5/15's all about 60-%70% ones got a hole in it near the side wall between the tread blocks if anybody wants them $200ish would make them gone and I'd deliver anywhere in WI/northern IL. They're awesome in the mud no doubt but snow leaves something to be desired.

I'm hoping to be driving out today through snow and ice to Chicago to grab FoMoCo's 35's he has for when I do my SAS. And 33's with 3.55 gears would suck worse then 31's do already lol.

i have kumho at 825's i keep on the bko (33's) when not off roading (i dunno how they do off road, i swap over to mtr's for that). you can't beat their performance/price ratio - 31's are around 90 per tire at tire rack. stangmata runs their mt tire and he loves it, and he probably does most of his driving on the street.
