BEST MUD TERRAIN TIRES
THE BEST MUD TERRAIN TIRES
Picking the best mud-terrain tire is not easy. And there are a lot of different reasons to consider different tires. So take a look at our list below where we’ve given you some outright best picks, our number one pick, and a selection of other mud-terrain tires that we highly recommend, depending on your budget and needs.
TOP PICK: Cooper Discoverer STT Pro
This selection might shock a few of you, but we stick by it. Cooper has long been developing fantastic off-road tires and its most recent updates moves the brand oh-so-close to being a Tier 1 tire manufacturer. It’s Discoverer AT3 lineup of all-terrain tires are almost unbeatable and the STT Pro mud-terrain tire brings a new level of innovation to the segment with a totally unique tread compound that delivers outstanding off-road grip with a touch more on-road civility (and performance) than you’d get elsewhere.
With amazing durability and a huge selection of sizes, we just can’t say enough good things about this Cooper Tire.
ALSO CONSIDER: BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3
The successor to the amazing KM2, BFG’s Mud Terrain T/A KM3 delivers 5 percent better mud traction, 8 percent better rock traction and, perhaps best of all, is 27% more resistance to punctures thanks to even stronger sidewalls.
If you don’t believe us about the Coopers above, you can never go wrong with a set of BFGs.
Best of the Rest #1: Falken Wildpeak M/T
There’s not one area that makes the Wildpeak M/T stand out compared to the other tires on this list, which is why it’s in our best-of-the-rest section. It’s still outrageously capable, from a top quality brand, with a big selection of sizes. One way this Falken does help stand out is its civility on-road with very reasonable noise levels.
Best of the Rest #2: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar
Off-Roading is practically synonymous with Goodyear’s Wrangler brand of tires and this one stands out for its technology. Infused with Kevlar, Goodyear claims the addition of this bullet-stopping material reduces the likelihood of a sidewall puncture by 35%. We can’t verify that, but we can say that owners swear buy it.
Best of the Rest #3 Toyo Open Country MT
The Toyo Open Country MT is yet another solid performer. Off-road grip is near the top on this list, with a slight edge in snow over some of its competitors. We really like it’s ability to self-clean with large bars in the void spaces designed to clear out mud and rocks. Perhaps what makes it the most special is Toyo’s commitment to the aftermarket with a huge selection of sizes, many of which are oversized, ranging from 15- all the way to 24-inches. There are also plenty of options for 3/4/-ton and 1-ton trucks.
