Default how would these tires be in the mud

anyone ever used these?



"The Roughrider M+S is designed for maximum traction off road in mud and snow resulting from deep, self-cleaning, aggressive open block tread."
* Perfect tire for serious off road driving
* True on/off highway light truck mud and snow traction
* Aggressive open block tread offers maximum traction in mud and snowy conditions
* Deep-self cleaning computer designed tread for optimum mileage and even tread wear
* Available in some P series and LT series


the price is right, about $200 less for a set(canadian) than BFG A/T. Any thoughts? should i try them out?

The tread looks alright, the only questions I have are what kind of tire is it and how thick is the side wall. If you want to mud make sure you have a thick side wall otherwise that rock your driving past could be the end of your new tire.

no but there's no telling whats in the bottom of that mud hole your going through. Thin sidewall tires are especially prone to tearing after you air them down to go play in the dirt. Also I wasn't questioning the manufacturer but the type of tire (radial, bias ply ect)

haha, sorry I'm an idiot, too busy looking at the meats rather than the side wall. That tire should do ok in the mude. Depends on how hard you want to push it. I mean it's a radial and it has steel belts in it so even when it's aired down it's not going to conform to the terrain very well. But I'm guessing you have a stock ride height blazer and drive on the road the majority of the time and off road every now and again that should do fine. Most important thing on an off road tire is the self clean capability and sidewall thickness.

BFG all terrain is a good all around tire. Basically the best all terrain on the market right now if you ask me. I had em on my durango and I can't recall having a traction problem ever. Except when they got bald but that's more of my fault

I have to agree about the BFg All-Terrains. Mine have never failed me.

Make sure you get LT (light truck) tires, they have a thicker sidewall. More cords, which resists damage. Rocks aren't the only thing out the there to damage tires, trees can do some serious damage to a tire.

I'd be careful with the Canadain Tire brand All-terrain. They are made for Canadian Tire and my buddy had to have two changed due to bulges. Can't go wrong wth th BF Goodrich. Toyo also has a great All-terrain/Mud tire. A bit more money but a great tire according to a neighbor of mine. He has a set on his Trailblazer. I have the Yokohama and they are not so great in the winter. I think I'll change to Toyo later this year..
