i'd say no. go with a BFG a/t if you want a good life great all around. if you want a great cheap mudder get Mud King XT its made from bfg m/t compond. also the buck shot mudder is one of the best millege and off road capable mudder

Dean tires are a line of tires manufactured by the Cooper Tire Company and sold under the Dean name. For any given type of tire (all-season, MT, AT, etc.) and model of tire within a type of tire, they usually look like one of the Cooper tires of that type of tire. Opinions vary as to whether they are as good as the Coopers.

BFG A/T's. I got 86,500 miles out of mine. Best tire for the money.

I love my BFG A/Ts! I will probably get some SS TSL Radials once these wear out in the next few YEARS. If you want a cheap tire that's pretty strong, the Buckshot mudders are very popular and affordable. Also, the Dunlop Mud Rover is a great tire too, though be careful with their sidewalls if you do alot of hardcore wheeling.
