Mud Terrains

Postby QuackAddict95 » Tue Oct 23, 2012 8:35 pm

I am looking to buy a set of mud terrains for my truck. I want a set of 225x70R14. Does anyone know where I can find any?

hes not going to find a Nitto AT in a 14in wheel the smallest wheel they make them in is 16in, they arent really that great either... more of a glorafied highway terrain.

this is probably going to be your best bet, or a good snow tire for that size. mud tires are VERY limited for that size.

might be able to fit a 28x8.5x14 super swamper TSL if you can find them, let me guess you drive a ranger?

That being the case, you could probably step up to 15" wheels pretty easily, keep an eye out on CL. Rangers have the same bolt pattern as most jeeps so there's a lot of options out there. With a 15" wheel you might be able to run a 235/75/15 which is about the same size as 2500HD suggested and there are a fair number of options in that size.

I have a single cab 2wd Colorado with the 4 cylinder and I have 31x10.50x15s and it turns em good and they've lasted a good whole now. I only paid 700 with shipping that's if you go with a 15in rim.

if you are looking for cheap wheel there are tons of 5x4.5 wheels in a junkyard also depending on what year ranger you have and if it is 4wd then alot of the late model jeep (factory) wheels wont fit because of the 4wd hub. and unless your ranger has a small lift (2in or less) then the largest tire you can fit is a 30in or 235/75r15. this is all for rangers for 83-89. after those years you can go up to a 31in tire with out rubbing and im pretty sure that jeep wheels wont fit on a ranger till 96 or 97 when they dropped the TTB front end and went to a IFS. i can tell you my little bronco2 loves her 31in boggers.

I'd upsize to 15 inch rims for availability.

For pure mud terrains I have found the following tires to be very good offroad.
Firestone MT
Buckshot mudders
They are pretty well mannered when new, but get appreciably louder when used.

For overall trail capabilities and fairly easy cleaning.
Goodyear Duratrack
Cooper STT
Good all around.

We have a good bit of clay like soil around here so AT tires just ball up and get about 3 inches larger. ATs are good in sandy soil though.

I have BFG Mud Terrain KM1's on my Chevy, in 235-15's. Great tire. Not exactly cheap.
You'll need to go to a 15" wheel to get a decent tire....as the others have said.

honestly, probably even a 16 or 17in wheel... not as many people run 15in wheels any more! hard to find a decent tire for a 15in wheel

Surely, you aren't saying that the BFG Mud Terrain KM1 is not a "decent tire".
It was when I put them on my Chevy two years ago .

God no! they are much better than the km2's I think. But the km1's are near impossible to find now that they are discontinued, other than the 285/70/17 that jeep puts on OEM Rubicons edt. jeeps.

I just checked this out, and you are 95% correct. They offer this fine aftermarket tire in only one size at this time: a 255/75R17. :sad:
I'm glad I bought a full set several years ago, for my Grand Cherokee, that have never been on the ground yet (235/75R17's).
