Dunlop Mud rovers

Does anyone have experience with the Dunlop Mud Rovers that ate 35/12.50/15. I did a search and caparison on tirerack.com and they actually rated them better than the BFG mt but not quite as good as the MTR's. They are only $111 a piece. I am going to be using them as a daily driver on my 72 FJ40, and weekend off roading. Just like to hear some peoples opinions.

Kick yourself in the head, then go buy some Krawlers. If you don't own a set of Krawlers, or Swampers... I believe it's technically illegal to post on this site.

Ok, seriously: Where will this vehicle spend MOST of its time? Road? Rocks? Mud?

I think the 35's measure in around 28.7"... (if you get my drift)

I had a set and loved them when they were new but they wore out faster then a swamper and at half tread didn't do as well as a wore out swamper.

a buddy of mine ran 33s on his cherokee for a while. They performed moderately on the trails, but lasted forever on the road.

They'd be fine for a DD that sees some mild-moderate trail use. Just watch out for sharp rocks on the trails......... sidewalls aren't real thick. I wouldn't run them on anything hardcore, JMHO

I have the 33's on my 85 4Runner and I hate them. The rubber is so hard they're lasting forever but they have NO grip. They're downright dangerous on the road since they're so damn slippery. And they're the worst tire I've ever seen or experienced in the snow. The only word to describe them is "awful." I'll be trying to give mine away when I get my IROKs installed.

I have a set of 33" At's. They grip great, and they are cheap. Thats all the good I can say about them. Mile for mile, they are the same price as a MTR or bfg mud by how fast they are wearing (30k out of em I expect).
Also today, backign out of a parking spot I hit a curb and took a chunk out of the sidewall. Now if that doesnt show you the hardcore extreme of these tires, nothing will.

The Dunlops last a long time for a mudder. Much longer than BFG mudders. They are horrible in the rain because of the hard compound. If you have a V8 look out cause you will not be able to recover from a slide when you go in to a turn a bit hot and come out hard on the gas!!! They are quieter than the BFG mudders and have a bit wider look (the section width and tread width are probably 1/2 to 1" wider). I'm using one as a bald one as a spare right now on my trail rig. Sliced them a few times on the Rubicon but the dozen or so plugs in the sidewall are holding air for now!

I have 33" mud rovers on my DD/tow rig. They have lasted a long long time. I never thought they would go this far. So the guy that said they wear faster than a swamper is smoking crack I also used to live in Oregon and would take my truck up to the snow and I would have to say that I was pretty impressed with what my big F350 could do. I could go anywhere my friend with a toyota on 33" BFGs and a rear locker could. So again the guy that said they don't work for crap in the snow has deff. not had the same experience as me. I would buy them again for a daily driver

I ran a set of 31" dunlops on my heep YEARS ago, and ran them out of tread in a whopping 17k miles. And that was with constant pressure checks, and the chalk test, and good rotation schedule

How could there be such a drastic difference? Did they change the rubber compound? I have 30 thousand on mine and they'll go another 10 easy.

I have a set of 35's on my 95 Doge 1/2 ton daily driver and they have lasted very well. I ran a set on my wheeling truck for a year or so and didn't have many complaints here either. I'd say they are a good DD tire and not too bad on the trail either. No, they are not swampers, but they work well for a combo tire.
