I had a set in the 35 inch variety in my old sfa s10. They did not see much mud but they did awesome in the sand and on trails.

I got them from my uncle with about 70% tread on them and they wore kind of fast for me. They were kind of shitty in the wet pavement too.

interco tires will have a soft tread compound, which means they will wear fast. they're also not very round. Stick to a larger manufacterer. I would say something like an MTR, KM2, baja claw, MTZ etc.

maybe rotate them, and try balancing them again? I have seen KM2s first hand run great on the highway

Truxes mts if its on a light vehicle. Used mine in the rocks mud sand and snow, loved them. The are radials and wear good if not on a full size truck. Only issue is the sidewalls are thin on some sizes

Yeah, I've been running the KM2's for a long time and they are on my DD/trail rig and they have been the best tire hands down I've seen in a long time. Are you one of those guys that run them at 55 psi?

Maxxis Buckshot mudders.

Buddy had a set on his Amigo, not bad on the street and hardly wore at all. Awesome in mud and sand (lowering air pressure a bit) and chewed through snow with ease.

Keep them balanced and they were relatively quiet too.

And if you're on a budget these for sure.

How about the Hercules Trail Digger M/T ?

I had a set of 31's , they wore well , good in all off road conditions , decent road manners , they can be studded and they have uncommon looking tread. My only gripe was that they were a bit loud , especially for a 31.

They were a decently priced tire when I bought them too.
