Buckshot or MT/R?

I'm torn. I'm about to order some 33x12.5R15 Tires, but I cant decide on whether I want The Buckshots, or the MT/Rs. I do alot of everything, Mud, dirt, and Concrete. I know several people (most notably zabeard) testify thier hearts out about the buckshots, and they are cheaper than the Goodyears. And I've read they last a LONG time.

Anyone with expirience with any of these two (especially the MT/R), what do you have to say? I've aready read alot about the Buckshots, so I guess I really need someone to point me in the right direction.

The mt/r's have become the the "BFG A/T" of m/t tires. Everyone will praise them, as they are a great tire, but just like the BFG, there are alternatives. And the Buckshot has started to become a well known one. Either way you go, im sure youll be happy.

i thought i read somewhere on here (or another ranger site) that the buckshots didnt perform too well. they flat out suck in snow, weren't that great in heavy duty mud, and only had their price going for them. regardless, they'll be my next set of tires, lol.

I was lookin at the latest 4wheel mag I pucked up at wally world and half of the vehicles in the mag have the MT/Rs. Now I'm considering getting a pari of MT/Rs... But have you heard of Mud Dawgs?? Same tread, low price, but I'm not sure about performance. There's a dealer around here that sells them, I'll get a quote for a set of them and see.

Because I kinda wanted not not have to driv with the b!tch tires on, you know, the little 29" tires with a 3" lift and not gap guards? Lol. I was going to get some tomorrow, actually. I've got some thinking to do, I guess.

I love my buckshots. Been through many a bean and corn field to pick up deer and have never had a problem with them. Half the time I don't even spin. I've crossed ditches, climbed steep, muddy hills and I've even had to hook to a few Toyota & Chevy trucks to pull them out in those same fields.


I'd go with the buckshots, they've lasted me around 3 years so far. Got to change them this spring, it's my fault they wore out so early. I was too cheap to get the front end aligned and let the road eat them up pretty good. I probably could've gotten 5 years out of them if not for that.
