October 9, 2004well i would have to say wide tires as well. i had a set of 11.50 super swamper ltbs on my truck for a little while and they did great in the mud, i guess i am more partial to the look of them.
October 10, 2004so what happens if your about to go through a mud pit that is always wet and always muddy, it has no bottom to it basically. well so your skinny tires sink, and sink and sink. you wanted them to do that but before you know it your up to your body in mud. I like to float myself.
October 11, 2004In my experience which isn't that long only 5 years, but I have found wider tires are much better than narrow tires in the mud due to a few reasons. One narrow tires dig strait down not saying all wide tires don't but the wider the tire means wider the surface area of the tire you have on the ground. Also the wider tires have wider and longer tread patterns which help the tire "clean" themselves much easier than narrow tires that have narrow tread patterns, making tough mud difficult to roll through... So take my opinion as just that an opinion but wider is better, GO AGGIES!!!!
October 13, 2004Well the opinions are unanimous (sp?) guess wider is better...tractor tires..hmmmmm anyway, i have watched a lot of mud bog events and seems to me that a combination of what all of you said makes sense any thoughts on width (how wide)? as previously mentioned that's a lot of weight sticking out there! an axle upgrade is required. any opinions?
November 6, 2004On my 76 blazer I ran 38x12.5 swamps in the front, and 38.5x15.5 hawgs in the rear - dont ask how the combo started, but it seemed to work pretty good. My issue was gearing - only had 4.10s at the time -- ran a few mud drags with the setup.
November 7, 2004I think the overwhelming majority have voted for wider tires...
February 4, 2005where I live its a matter of what kinda mud you wheel in, muskeg is bottomless black goo, if you sink you'll be there for the rest of your life. If its clay mud, then you need the gripiest tires possible (cut boggers are my favorite). I've seen alot of guys running in the bogs around here use agriculteral tires, they work good but they're really heavy and most of the guys running them break before the end of the day. I run 39.5x15 TSLs and they work decent pretty much in every situation I use my truck in, I started with 38x12.5s and the bigger tires work alittle better.
February 5, 2005I run a narrow tire.I do alot of trail riding which consits of alot of tight turns,and the wider tires don't steer well,Now depending on what kinda stuff I get into down here in Ga I may need to go to a wider tire.My truck is nicked named Diggers Revenge for that reason,it can dig through some serious stuff
February 5, 2005depends on the mud you play in as much as the truck you have the fastest truck through the mud pit where we went last year was the one with narrowed and cut tractor tires like skinny tires...on the trails arouns here you get three inches or so of mud and skinny tires tend to dig through but the wide tires tend to slide around depends on what you want... we go to the beach so I like to float on the sand and in deep mud witha a soupy watery type of a hole the wide tires do fine and I run a 4.3 v-6 so it has to do with what you want what type of mud and what type of playing you do....I like mud kickin up on the truck so I go as wide as possible...
