Doc:

If you are pertaining to the Geloandar M/T's and the Dunlop MT2, I would say that these tires are a notch or two above the Savero with respect to performance in Mud.  Have seen and personally tried these 3 tires and those were my findings.  The Geo M/T was very competent in the mud as was the MT2's.

The Savero has a slightly harder rubber compound and actually wears better than the other two if used on paved road.  the other two tires have a softer rubber compound.  The Savero also has a very decent ride because of the softer sidewalls.  This of course, is not an advantage on the trail when it comes to durability but it does have an edge on the comfort aspect.  hope this helps.

Is the Dunlop MT any good? Prices where in the prices Wolf quoted last quarter of 2002, for 32s that is.

Doesn't Kits carry the Simex tires?

MT2s are great.  I use them on our Trooper and MOJO uses them on his box-stock Sportrac.

Plain Dunlop MTs are a notch below.  However, they are affordable and still quite competent.  

MT2s are available only for 16-inch rims.  The 265/75R16 (32-inch) size is priced in the mid-P6,000.

speaking of  cheap M/Ts, do you have any feedback on the Maxxis Buckshot Mudders?

nic

Can you recommend stores that sell these brands. Thanks!

Denman used to make Buckshot Mudders but Maxxis, famed motocross tire maker, has since bought the company.

Great reputation with U.S. mud boggers but  I've never tried a set.  Design is old but tried and tested.  Can be noisy on the highway.

I like its aggressive military-like tread design.  Available in both radial and bias-ply for 15-17 inch rims.

When Maxxis bought Denman, they bought the company's 2 designs, the buckshot and the groundhawg.  Both of these design are a little long on the tooth but still effective for most applications.  The buckshot is an effective mud tire but does not have the added benefit of side traction because of the traditional practice of concentrating on  surface grooving and not lateral grooving.

Part of their charm and popularity in the U.S. is due to their durability and relatively inexpensive price.

I've heard that there's also this Mitchelin 9.00 x 16 tires that is cheap.  Have anyone use them.  It seems to me that this tire was made for construction purposes due to its High ply rating (14PR).

Wolverine

No personal experience with the Michelin though I remember Dale Abenojar selling something similar.  In my opinion, a 14 ply tire might be a little bit too stiff for light truck use.  That sidewall will be stiff and may not be as effective on the trail. They would probably last a long time though for regular use and have a tremendous payload capability.

Blasphemy! :)  They were made for military purposes-- not construction.

I've never had them on my vehicles but I've seen them in action and have ridden a vehicles equipped with them.  Yes, Dale Abenojar did use them when his Range wasn't a Reover yet and it still had passenger seats and a body.

A couple of LRCP boys also run them on their LRs-- one on a Defender and the other on a 109.

Bill Swails of EarthRoamer.com used to run Michelin XML 9.00-16s on his world travelling Dodge but has since moved to 325/85R16 (38" tall, 12.5" wide) Michelin XMLs.

My friend who ran the 9.00-16 size on his Defender conquered a lot of Mt. Maarat, Aurora and Mt. Pinatubo trails with those Michelins.

4Wheel & Offroad runs 42-inch versions on their Ultimate Superduty and so do many Unimogs  

They aren't the best mud tires but they won't let you down a long expedition.  Their radial construction makes them great all-around tires.

I'm a big fan of these tires and I was going to run a 9.00-16 set on my Canter but I found their 36-inch height too tall for my truck's wimpy 3.6-liter diesel. engine.

You can find complete specs of these Multi-purpose Tactical tires on the Michelin commercial tire website.

There's supposedly an armored vehicle builder/supplier who sells them for less than P6,000 each somewhere in Q.C.  That's a bargain!

 To all offroaders,
