I might do that, any suggestions on a good cheap M/T, cause I'll be needing tires soon.

I used to have the Radial Rovers on my old truck (not mud rovers) and they were the best tire I ever owned. Tire Rack's review of the mud rovers is excellent too.

NO! haha

There are better cheap mud terrains, they got to be as loud as my swampers and they were not good off road for a mud terrain.
I could crawl up stuff with other mud terrains that the mud rovers would spin and not get any traction.

Didn't you just get those DC's not to long ago?

How many miles do you have on them?

i like them but i never had a brand new set mine were half worn when i got them and they still did really well. I might get another set. they are different driving in the rain you just have to be careful. I loved them in the snow


also they are alot better off road around 12lbs of air they suck at 35

that is another thing. In the rain no way, they really like to slide around.

On the plus side though, they seemed to hold up well to abuse.

still would never own another set.

Maxxis are expensive, the millage I got might be my driving and the crappy *** roads around here, I'm talking to DC bout that though. Right now I need cheap and decent.
