They are soft (which is great offroad) but they are bias ply, not radial. Not recommended for daily use really. If you park them for a long time, they get flat spots that take a while to get out.

But for a cheap part-time wheeling tire, they can't be beat. Very affordable.

They work great offroad. I have a neighbor had them on his F-150 (1978) and they tore up on some mud the one time I saw them in action.

Nay. Down the road you'll spend MORE money. Save up for some Mickey Thompson MTZ's, or some ProComp Extreme MT's or other siped mud tire. Get something with siping on the tread blocks so you don't slide in the rain. I had some smooth block mud tires and they were awful in the rain.

Good tires. Can't remember if they're siped or not. I still recommend siping no matter what anyone tells you. Unsiped muds are fishtailing waiting to happen.

Not sure what the cheapest is. Get an offroading mag and ply the ads to find what's going on, then hit the internet and see how well you can do and check if they're siped or not.

the "new" BFG M/T's (the new style tread, the old tread design isn't sipped) are sipped and since you have 16" wheels, you should be able to get them.......they are great tires and work well on and off road...you should be able to get roughly 50,000 miles out of them if you rotate and keep the air up...

see how the tread is smooth in this picture of the "old" BFG M/T tread design? The old design was not sipped:



see the small "cracks" in the "new" BFG M/T tread design, those are sippes:




sippes allow the water to escape from under the tread, decreasing your hydroplaneing and increasing your wet traction.

(lifted97)^^^^ and that is why my next set of tires will be the new design of the BFG Muds (KM2) siping helps out a lot on wet roads. Especially when you only get rain once every few months during certain times of the year. Then all those road oils and crap make the roads treacherous. I was driving with my girlfriend in a 99' 4x4 Dakota with new BFG Muds and if you got on the gas a little to much it would slip all over. Siped muds make a big difference.

I had a similar experience and took out someone's mailbox. I've been arguing for siped mud tires every since, lol. Even earlier in this thread in case you didn't read it all. I can't think of too many folks who would argue either.

I could tell you but they never made it out of the back of the truck, but I wouldn't get them for a DD like everyone else said.

I second the Buckshots, lots of people around here love them in the mud and get good mileage with them as well.
