Walmart Mud Tires?

I was in walmart today and saw some pretty agressive tires that they had on display and I was wondering if anyone has tried these? They look like truxus MT/s. I picked up a booklet on the tires they carry and found out they are called Super Sport HT. The ones I was looking at were 35x12.50x15 load C for just $132 a piece! So if you have them or know anything about them, post up.

I personally havent heard anything about 'em, but for the price you could get some, add the warranty, and beat 'em, and you could tell us what YOU think of them......

Remember most of the time you get what you pay for. Im sure they are like all the other mud rover generic mud terrains out there. If you get some lets us know.

I've heard that they were made by Kelly Springfield or Cooper. Both of those companies have been around for a long time and make quality tires. $132 a piece that's a pretty good deal. I've always bought tires based on their offroad performance ie. BFGs (I won't buy those anymore, too many sidewall cuts ), MTRs and my latest set of TrXus M/Ts (which I really like) but, lately I'm more concerned about how many highway miles I can get out of them (tires are getting really expensive) as my truck, is also my daily driver and work truck and I can't afford to shell out close to $1000 a year in tires. Yeah, I put alot of miles on my truck .........Hans

I had them on my 90. It was my first wheeler and I was young but they went good in the snow and mud. Never had them on the sand. For having open diffs they worked really well. However, I did get two flats in the same mud hole but I think it was full of trash or something because they had a bunch of pinhole leaks.

I dunno man, sounds kinda sketchy. Like someone said above you get what you pay for. Just save up a few more dollars and opt for some quality tires. I mean, would you buy a bullet proof vest from wally world if they sold em? Just my $.02

heres a pic of them


Personally, I would toss a set of BFG at's on the truck for now, and save up for another set of wheels/tires you run when your goin wheelin, on trips, etc. The bfg's will last 70k if you take care of them, and still work great offroad (if you can keep the sidewalls in one piece).

So thats my opinion.

They also look like coopers to me.

tires

That tire design is the same as the Big O MT's. Very close to the old style Good Year MT. If you want a set of cheap tires, go to tire rack and buy the Dunlop Mud Rovers, they are about $110 each for 33"12x15. If you have the funds, but the TOYO OPEN Country MUD Terrains. That what I'm running. they are about $200 each. It'll last you up to 80K, that what I heard. Ran the CON, DEER Valley, Slick Rock, Iron Mt Road with 6'- 7' of snow with no problems. By the way, don't worry about the side ways getting cut. They are 5 plys thick. Not one cut in the last 5 trips.

x2 on the Toyo's. I ran the AT's for years and was thrilled with the wear, plus for an AT they didn't wheel too bad. My partner put a set of the MT's on about 6 months ago and they seem to grab really well. Plus I love the concept of not having to buy a new set of MT's every year! Worth the money!

A buddy of mine paid $750- for 5- MTR's 35x15's at Walmart the other day.
That's mounted, balanced, tax, road hazard, etc

Walmart.. hmmpf.
I'd "try" their tires - or might run one as a spare. I've had problems with my 35s when I got them. One wheel was out of round (thanks 4WP - they charged me a mount and balance on a bad wheel that THEY sold me) - and one of the Dunlops was out of round. It took 8 trips to NTB and a call to the regional representative to get them to take care of that dang tire..

Now - WALMART.. Ugh.
In my area Walmart has the absolutely cheapest prices for mounting, balancing, and road hazzard. They'll also price match. A good deal? Sure... I had mount and balance the tires on my SRT-4. First time they "forgot" to balance 'em. I had to wait another 2 hours to get it re-done. They're still not right, above 70mph, I've still got a problem.

They also have cheap oil changes.
A mobile 1 synthetic oil change is like $35 or something.. 5 quarts.
Basically almost cheaper than I can do it myself.
Last time, I took the SRT in - they left the oil cap off the valve cover. I didn't notice until I had oil coming up out of the front of the hood...
Stained the hood on the inside. Walmart sent someone out that picked up the car - I wasn't too keen on handing over the keys - but they did get it cleaned, washed, and detailed...

I'll spare you the story of how my 400 hp TA got hung up on one of their lifts and they basically tried to "ram" it off the lift under it's own power...
Insurance adjuster was reasonable though...

If you go to WalMart - double check your junk...

SuperSwamper irok!!!!

I just bought the SuperSwampers Irok's 36x13.50x15, these tires are totally awsome. I can't believe how great they work. Got them at 4wheelparts, found a 10% off sale they were having July 4th and got them for 156.99 each. Bought some used rims to mount them on, and just use them for when I go out wheeling, and have the junkers for Daily Driving. Anyone have a guess of how many miles there good for ?? I've heard 8-10 thousand ??

I have the 35x12.50x15 Wally world tires on my Jeep and don't have any complaints about them. I just picked up 4 35x12.50x15 Dunlop Mud Rovers from Discount Tire for $550.00 out the door which included mounting, balancing, etc. They ended up being cheaper then the Wally World ones.

I have had the 35x12.50 Super Sports MTs on my 85 Bronco for about two years now. I have had good luck with them. I have driven from Denver to Moab twice and around CO and they have worn well. I did puncture a sidewall last year on a inch to two inch root sticking up out of the ground on the side of a tight CO trail.

I am not impressed with walmart at all, Took me 4 months to get my MTR road hazzard warrantied because I cut the sidewall....Mainly that was a goodyear backorder, but about a month was because they never ended up ordering it for me....

Then when I finally do take it in, they destroyed my tube that I ran in there for a while so I could actaully wheel a bit with my tire....they wouldn't compensate anything for that because I was already getting a $182 tire for free..... what the fuck....I say just go to a different company, and see what deals you can get. For my next tire purchase I plan on getting tires from discount or a better reputable company...My neighbor worked at the store that I got it at, and he was telling me about the horrible training the kids that work there get. They don't know what they're doing...

i had the super sport HT's in 31x10.50

they were aggressive enough, but lacked sidewall tread. also, the sidewalls were rather weak. i had a 1/4" twig puncture one.

dont kid yourself about wal-marts warranty, its pro-rated based on the amount of tire wear. so if they replace the tire, they measure the tread and you pay for how much tread you have used.

A guy I wheel with had these tires and they had the worst sidewalls ive ever seen. When they get wet you can see air bubbling out of the sides of them.
Sweet.
