Review of BFGoodrich Mud King XT tires

When reading the following it is important to note that BFGoodrich no longer offers Mud King tires,  and if you are interested in purchasing a tire of this type you might consider their Mud Terrain line which has different characteristics from this one.  

When one mentions Mud King tires, a phrase that quickly comes to mind is "jack of all trades, master of none."  This may not be exactly the most flattering summary of these tires, but it may give you the idea that while the BFGoodrich Mud King XT is capable of providing decent mud traction because of  the large voids in the tread spaced out enough to assist with the self cleaning of mud and debris there is little more to be said about them in a superior sense.

With lower air pressure the sidewalls flex well, however,  they are relatively thin and vulnerable because of their low ply rating and the lack of wrap around tread.

In snow and sand Mud King tires do a lack-luster job when compared to other mud terrain tires but on the highway we've seen reports of less than moderate noise level compared to othes yet, on wet or icy roads, the lack of sipes in the lugs results in lesser traction than might otherwise be available. Tread life is reported to be about average with the price being on the low side of mud terrain tires. These tires can be studded.
