    Talk to me about Mud Terrains

    Looking for a set of muddies in 265/75/16

    Current short list is

    - BFG KM2

    - Federal Couragia

    - Maxxis Bighorn

    As usual I've read positive and negative reviews on all 3.

    Federals are ahead at the moment because they're $425 cheaper for the set than the BFG.

    Anything else to consider?

    Anybody know of any good deals in Brisbane?
    No. Driving an esky along the footpath will be the end humanity. This must be stopped.

    BFG's > Chinatown.

    Hacketts are cheapest in Bris by far. PF member too I believe. Not sure if they are parallel imports or not, but fuck it, get amongst it...

    Bighorns are good quality but typically noisy and overpriced compared to what they used to be. Too dear to choose instead of bf's now.

    I'm on my second set of bfg's now and have done some decent trips and have never had an issue. First set did 70k km's which I was happy with.

    Paid $350ea for 315/75/16 so not exactly an expensive tyre anymore.

    Ok 200 per tyre ive been selling them the last year without a negative feedback. Only 1 guy that ripped them up in shale in the nt.. do a search on them . Best value for money in my opinion.

    I got less than 20k out my Buckshots (predecessor of BigHorn) before they were completly fucked. A mate who got tyres at a similar time went with the BFG, he's done 110k on them, tread is now no good for off-road but recons he will go another 15k on the road before swapping them, so probably 6 times the life I got, I saved how much a tyre? :S

    I have Achilles Desert hawk M/T on my Amarok atm



    About $200ea fitted

    I am a massive fan of the BFGs, but twice the price, and for what and the KMs I do these are just fine, and they look tough as fuck down maccas.

    They are nosier than BFG M/Ts

    If traction is what you are after then get silverstone ex117. Noise is fixed by wearing ear muffs when driving on formed roads



    Having said that, on my current toy car I have kumo kl71 tyres and am very happy with them.

    The last set of A/Ts I bought (a month ago) had USA stamping.

    I'll look more closely on our KM2 equipped work trucks...

    Average life of the BFG appears to be double the others so for 1.4x the price I'll go with them. Will give Hacketts a ring this week sometime. I wonder if Bob Jane will honour the 10% price beat guarantee?

    Yep, had many sets of BFG muds and would buy again in a heartbeat. Great tyres, and massive mileage if looked after with rotates and pressures.
    Awesome in standing water on road too

    FWIW, ive done nearly 10k on a set of maxxis bighorn MT764 (the new ones). fairly impressed so far. still look like new, were cheap, handle suprisingly well on the road. are quite noisy though.. they were on my 89 pajero, so no MT tyre would be quiet on the old clunker.

    I've used a few sets of Kumho KL71 and liked them. probably don't last that long though.
    Maybe also look at Goodyear Wrangler MTR. Will be my next set.

    I've had big horns and bfg's.

    Big horns a great tyre but are noisy and getting a little expensive.

    Bfg's are great. Reasonably quiet and last ages. Would bang again.

    I have wrangler MTRs the kevelar ones on my work car, did 20000km last year. The car has a constant load 400kg over
    stock gvm, gets driven quite fast, often 140-160kph and prob 50% on dirt and another 20% no road. They are holding
    together pretty well but best of all is last year I only killed one tyre when people I work with have killed up to 4 on one trip.

    MTR is a great tyre, only thing i've ever run on my Hilux but I wouldn't consider them a Mud terrain. Far from it, aggressive all terrain at best. The MT/R stands for Maximum Traction / Reinforced. I had always considered MTR to mean Mud Terrain Radial. The side wall lugs are nothing to write home about and the spacing on the lugs is so close together that they struggle to self clean.

    They are just getting too expensive now so I went for the Duratrac. Really solid tyre, never let me down. They are less agro than the MT/R so no use here.

    Kumho and federal wear out in a hurry.
    Bighorn are noisy and get good ks.
    Km2 are good tyre, good ks, narrow tread width for their size.

    I run MT/Rs on our Pajero - They are a great tyre.
    They only see usage when we are specifically heading away - done about 6,000km -but had them for about 3 years. Can't fault them..
    Calling them an aggressive AT is selling them short I reckon, they have performed just as good and even better that other guys in our club on BFG KM2s, Bighorns and Kumho KL61s

    the old bighorns (762's) are noisy. the new ones (764) are acceptable for a M/T. no Muddies are going to be H/T quiet.
