Not with the Mud Country, but I have a close friend who has had excellent reviews of their all terrain tires. For whatever reason I'm having a brain fart and can't remember the name.

I would expect a high quality tire with a somewhat "proud" price tag. They are made by Mickey Thompson who makes a killer tire.

Hopefully someone can chime in that is running them. I can't think of someone off the top of my head to refer you to for first hand information. :) :beer:

I had them and they wore out FAST!!!! They also were loud. Other than those two factors, I liked them a lot. Now the wearing won't be as much of an issue on a JK... I had them on a Chevy Silverado 2500HD Duramax 4x4 that weighed 7000lbs. At the time that I bought them, they were one of the few load range E aggressive tread tires around. Under the weight of that truck though, they wore out quickly and in an odd choppy pattern that I hadn't ever seen a tire wear that badly in before. But, like I say, that's under a 7000lb truck and towing about 7-8000lbs often. That quick wear is too be expected though from any aggressive tire put under that heavy a truck, the only tire that ever lasted under that truck was Michelin LTX M&S!

Overall, I'd say they are a good looking tire with good traction in mud (got the truck in mud that wasn't deep but was very slick and they did great) drove great on the street. Just had the usual mud terrain problems: fast wear and loud noise.

So under a 3700 jeep they should be fine, i drive 8 miles to work and then 8 miles back home and drive to see my girlfriend about 2 times a week and that drive is 34 miles.

Driving that little yeah, they should last you a while! ;)

When I had them, I was averaging 36K+ miles a year so, they only lasted about 6 months, LOL! :bawling:

I'd still wait and see if anybody chimes in about their offroad performance before I pull the trigger if I were you! I can only comment that they were good at digging in mud! :D
