There is no "best overall" tire, each one has it advantages and disadvantages.

1. Maxxis Creepy Crawler
I have seen this tire in action and i have to say i'm not impressed, did not really well.

2. Pitbull Rocker
I had this tire at the eurotrial in San Marino and it worked really, really well there. Mud is a different thing, this tire does not really shine in the mud but it does OK.

3. BFG Krawler
Really shines on rocks and hard surfces, the looser the surface gets the less traction, does not like mud.

4. Bogger
My favourite, extreme traction if you cut the small lugs out, but you need some big axles, they break axle shafts quicker as you can get off the gas pedal. Uncut they are a very good overall tire.

5. IROK
I know, a lot here run IROK's but i don't like them, if you run low tire pressure your vehicle tends to jump around because of the flexy sidewall of the tire.

6. TSL
A good all around tire, performs well in all conditions, would prefer the SX.

This is just my .02

you also have the super swamper LTB and the maxxis trepadors which should be considered. I loved my iroks, but didnt get to test my ltbs before I sold my truck.

hi,

for example, i saw that jeff and bob tried the maxxis creepy crawler.guys, how did they work?

and the spiderman, lars dahl, has used the tsl a few years. he became ET-champion with them. so they couldnīt be so bad.of course, the main reson is, that he is one of the best driver i know :shy::smokin::shy:

is it right: the rockers were build for heavy trucks?

I have testet some tires trough the years... I must say that I really loves my IROKS... they are competible on every surface, and the never let me down... I agree that the could be bouncy,,, but still they never stop impressing me...

Your right Marlon - we used the 35" Maxxis creepy crawler on our old portal car in Eurotrial Norway but the steering broke on the first section :laughing: even with that small test we did not like them as they are to hard without much flex for rocks. This year with the new truck we have bought the Maxxis mudzilla as we like to try new things and not follow all others Thefinger

The tyre we did like for the rocks was the Pit bull Rocker in Finland the tyres worked really well it was the rest of the car that kept breaking :laughing::laughing:

I have to say for a good around tyre listen the expert Kjell - Boggers is the way :shaking::shaking:

Weaksauce from what I hear, gotta a buddy that runs em on his DD / beach XJ.
As for the other tires.
I've never been much of an Interco fan. Never been that impressed with the bogger - it's lack of lateral traction on off Camber muddy trails is alarming.
Iroks just seem to fail in general. Poor life, average offroad, crap on the street. The new MT/R's seem to be real winners.
Personally, I love the pitbulls. Ran the bias ply on my TJ & am planning a radial set.

Off camber and mud is alarming for every tire, but the bogger is one of the better tires for this. You never drove a cut bogger i assume?

BTW, street driveability is not an issue here, he is looking for tires for his prototype that will never see any street use.

New MT/R's & pitbulls sidehill fine.
Admittingly I've never driven a rig with cut boggers, I have seen plenty & have been less than impressed. For a comp tire, considering how much mud y'all see - I suppose their a viable choice.
Whatever you choose - make sure to post pics :smokin:
