Best Tyre for Mud and Rocks

Hi guys. Just about to get new rubbers for my old lady. I had some decent ATs and now I want to get back to Mud Tyres. What do you run? Mickey Thompson, Cooper STT, BFG? I want to run 35x12.5 R15 and I have about 1500 AUD that I want to spend (maximum) on a set of 5 Tyres. What to buy and why??

Sorry mate, but you won't get 5 35" tyres (in the brands you've listed...) for $1500... Won't happen... You'll probably be lucky to get ANY 35's for $1500 to be honest... If you go with a no-name or generic brand, you MAY get four 35's in that budget... Just the way it is mate... But if you wanna throw a few extra spoons and look at the brands you've listed, well you'll find they're all pretty good...
How well do you get on with your tyre bloke...? I got my 35" MTZ's for just over $400 each.. and I find them to be a bloody good tyre both on and off road...

Try this one here, Summit Mud Hog 315/75R16 for 289 AUD. I got the Mud Hogs myself since a year and they are pretty good. Very quite on road, good grip on rainy roads and pretty grippy offroad on mud and rocks. Even on sand they perform. Wear is pretty good too, have them since a year, drive a fair bit to work every day (45km a day at least + every second weekend a long trip) and they still have 90% of profile left.

It is worth to have a look in our 4x4 parts review section :)

I know a few people running the summit mud hogs now. Makes me wish I had have known about them when I bought new shoes for my pajero 3 odd years ago. Having said that the MTZ's have been a great tyre. They're at about 70% tread left as I don't do big km's and I have a set of road tyres :) They have a few chips in them now as I went a bit silly on some rocks one day but other than that they have been faultless.
pebbo OP

I acutally went with Summit Mudhogs and run them now since maybe 30,000ks. Great tyres, very quiet, great wear and no punctures at all. I spent the majority of my time on the highway but they do get their occasional weekend workout. Just remember to always lower the tyre pressure when going through dirt tracks then they will last. Next time I'll probably go for the new Summit ATs. They look great and I don't do that much mud anymore anyways.

Where's a good tyre place around Brisbane?
