Mud Tires: It's the Season

Thursday, April 26, 2012 by Alex Mouroulis

With the temperature getting warmer, it's time to get your rig ready and hit the trails! The following tires are a few of our best sellers and would be a great fit for this year's mud season.

The Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 is inspired by BFGoodrich's extremely competitive T/A Krawler competition tire. It's a much more civilized ride with very good mud-clearing capability. TriGard internal construction and chip-resistant compounds both contribute to sidewalls that resist pinch flats at low pressure and produce sidewall cords that are 33% stronger than the previous Mud-Terrain T/A KM tires.

 

Firestone Destination M/T tires bring a very civilized road ride for such an open and aggressive tire. The tire features UNI-T technology and provides great wet traction capability. Long Link Carbon, a special form of molecular re-engineered carbon black, helps to resist sidewall cuts and abrasions on the trails. Not only does this tire work well on the road, but its tread pattern is the most aggressive of these three options. This tire clears extremely well and really shines when digging and biting into sloppy, muddy conditions.

 

The Yokohama Geolandar M/T Plus features a highly directional tread pattern - a design feature the other two tires lack. This allows the tire to provide excellent hydroplaning resistance. When running oversized, extremely wide tires, the bigger footprint is very subject to lift-up in deep puddles at speed; which the directional pattern can certainly help with this issue. The less aggressive tread patterns are very effective in sandy conditions. I have been dune jumping using the Geolandar M/T Plus and it's definitely up to the challenge.

 

Whether you're driving on the trails, the beach, or climbing slippery rocks and boulders, don't let anything stand in your way. All three tires are up to the task!
