I thought the mud kings were made by BFG. I remember seeing adds for them in off road magazines a few years back.
If you live in hot climate then definitely do not get the Geolanders. I've read countless reviews of owners saying to avoid hot highway driving at all costs. The hot roads eats away at the soft compound too fast.05TRDOffRoad said:I was thinking the Geolander might have a softer coumpound than I need and is too agressive for what I do. I have a Prerunner and I live in the flattest, hottest place in the country. I'm in South Mississippi and we don't have hills, rocks, snow, ice, or any other really treacherous terrain. All of my offroading is on realatively level trails and dirt roads with clay and "gumbo mud," which is why I'm getting a mud tire instead of an AT.
I think that is a great option, search around and you'll find them on quite a few trucks...One red truck comes to mind from a few weeks ago.have you thought about flipping the MUD KINGS around to have no whitewall.How much would 10% over cost be for those Toyos?05TRDOffRoad said:Okay. Sorry for all the confusion, but I just found out that my uncle has a good friend that is a Toyo dealer and can get me a really good deal on the Toyo Open Country MTs(probably about 10% over cost). Does anyone have any opinions on these? Even at regular price they're $5 cheaper than the BFG.
I'm not disagreeing that they might be a good tire. But, I've heard the guy at the tire shop complaining about how hard they are to balance. So this might be something to keep in the back of your head when purchasing.jedi said:ONE: Mud Kings ARE BFGs according to multiple tire people I've spoken too. They're even listed as BFG Mud Kings on Summit Racing. So as far as quality goes you can be assured they're good tires... whether or not you want giant white mud king letters is a different story.
TWO: The Toyo Open Country tires are great tires. I had a set of the ATs and then moved up to the MTs with excellent results. The tread wear is great, and so is the traction. Toyo is a great company and most places offer really good warranties because of it. I've always wanted BFG MTs but because of the price, shied away. The Toyo's are a great alternative.
