sucks in the mud, good in the sand. no one buys them because they suck at balancing and they dont lsat very long.

crazyasnedge had them on his truck before he flipped it.

well interco has always had balancing problems which is not a big deal if its strictly off road but when your goin down the highway getting multiple concussions from the shaking lol. Ive always been fond of the Interco Thornbird and the TSL/SX tires. The Thornbird has great tread wear while offering a smooth ride for an off road tire. I know a few guys around here that have them on some Yotas and love them. They also look tite as hell. The SX is a lil more shaky but great in the mud.

yea i think they are the SST. Alabama power uses them on their work trucks. They are relatively inexpensive and great all around.

those tires wear out fast and apparently suck in mud, maybe think about a mickey thompson baja mtz radial, i have been hearing good thing about them lately, someone posted about mud grapplers, lately all i have heard about them is how loud they are and how they fill up with mud and don't clear out

i love the look of the nittos. It would seem like they would clear out well due to the space between the tread. Thats what i hear about the BFG A/Ts they fill up and never leave until on the road. Never been a big fan of them myself.

Cooper S/T = All terrain
New Cooper STT = Mud terrain with siping, 3 ply
Older Cooper Radial STT = Unsiped mud terrain

I have these: Mickey Thompson MTZ. I've posted a bit on them here. They've been great at everything so far. I can't say enough good about this tire for a mud tire. Except for being slightly noisier than an AT, they have both on and offroad grip that is more than adequate including in rain. I'm not sure they excel at anything -- but they sure do well in most things.

Buy American if you possibly can. Interco, Cooper (which includes ProComp, Mickey Thompson, and Dick Cepek tires), and BFG in particular are American owned and made.

if you're looking at Mickey Thompson's go with the MTZ's! i absolutely love mine and i'll put them against mud terrain, short of a bogger...and i got mine cheaper than you can get the cooper STT's....
