Time for a thread resuscitation!

Is anyone still running the summit mud hogs? How are they holding up? Would you buy again? If not, why and what are you looking at to replace them?

Thanks in advance!

I was seeing relatively low km examples popping up on Gumtree regularly.

My best guess would be that they're actually a bit shit.

I'm running them on mine currently, done around 50,000km on them I will probably expect to see around 70-80,000km out of them behind they are too worn. They haven't been terrible tyres to run, current issues is there wear pattern seems to throw the balance out at certain speeds. This is on a car that currently sees around 500kms on road every week. Offroad have served me well, no big cuts, nicks etc to note.
Would I buy again, for a weekend warrior or off road tyre only- maybe, price point was good draw card. I'll probably go up to BFG's or Maxxis next time.

So you don't have them and you're basing your response on seeing some for sale 2nd hand?

Ever thought of being a motoring reporter?

My JKUR isn't a daily driver which is why I decided to run 35" Mud hogs as opposed to the 285/75/17 Nitto's I was looking at.

Off road they have never let me down. Fantastic grip and very comfortable whilst aired down

I really like the grip they've given me in sloppy clay surfaces my previous MTZ's let me down.

A mate with Nitto's in a 295/70/17 is running them as his daily driver and with a 70% price difference he isn't going to get 70% greater life out of them.

As I said to a mate a few days ago who is currently running 35" MTZ's and looking for new tyres, these wouldn't be my first choice as daily drive tyres, but off road they are brilliant.

great tire i run them on the jeep as its more a daily driver, great kms outs them and no grip difference really, i run claws on one of my toys and nits on another so I'm comparing them to half decent tyres worth 500+ a corner, so for under 300 a corner i wouldn't be complaining, they are now under a different brand my supplier sold me called katora or something.

I'm sorry my blunt wording struck a chord but you said it yourself in your closing comment.

I'd probably be rolling on Mud hogs as well if the vehicle was primarily a weekend off road toy. Nothing more frustrating than driving a stick through your brand new Mickey T and being nearly $500 out of pocket the next week. All tyres wear out with age and off road oriented tyres especially decline significantly in performance as the tread wears.

But I can tell you with 100% certainty while I was shopping I saw more low km second hand cheap no-name tyres for sale than brand name. I reckon people fit them, use them for a bit and then get the shits when the tread gets a bit wobbly because they're not rotating them regularly enough. Heck I binned the Cooper ST on my Jeep when I bought it - weren't even 5yrs old and the rubber was rock solid, cracking between the tread blocks and when a 3.8L JK is able to spin them up in 3rd on the blacktop you know something is amiss!

good review here on a non Jeep, but a good review nonetheless. Honest and not biased.:
