Apparently you dont understand that you cant really have both. You either have something thats great in the mud and wont leave you in a field and something that sucks on the highway. Or you get stuck and run great on the highway.

Buy a 2nd set of wheels and swap out when you tow or split the difference with a tire like the KM2.

I run Dunlop mud Rovers, and they are good in the snow and mud... i have around 20k on them and still have a good bit of tread left... If i were to do it again i would get the Mickey Thompson MTZ... They are great street, mud, snow, and cow sh!t id imagine.

mtz, toyo mt, those cooper mt's...not sure if they come in load e in that size but im sure you could find one of them that does...good road manners and will still chew through the slop...too bad the ground hawgs arent in your size...those things rip and wear like iron cause the compound is pretty darn tough

The more aggressive the tire the worse its going to wear. A tire that does good in the mud isn't going to wear well on the highway. Personally I would stick to a more aggressive all terrain if the mud isn't that bad, it would have better wear characteristics than a true mud tire.

When I'm in the market for new tires I review The Tire Rack survey results as a source for additional information. Just go to the Tire Rack home page, then pick the category of tire you're looking for from the "Survey Results" link on about the middle of the page on the left and go from there.

Tried to provide you all a link, but it keeps getting hijacked...

My last two set of tires have been Bridgestone Dueler Revo's. Been great tires. Aggressive, but certainly not a mud tire. They don't howl going down the road, and I got 67k miles out of the last set. I end up backing a 16' trailer into some soft places when I'm delivering cabinets with it and they work well.

Its either one or the other man. The better the tires are on road the worse off road they will be. An all terrain tire will only work for so long. It will chew up the ground because they WILL gum up so you will have to spin the sh!t out of the tires to clean them. the first time you get stuck you will wish you got the mud tires. You need to have tires with some big deep lugs that will self clean so you don't have to spin them. Maybe you should look into some of the tall n skinny military tires. Or the Ground Hawgs, they are a tuff tire that are good in the mud and they have some heavy ply tires as well.
If it were me I would sacrifice the nice riding long lasting road tires for some noisy mud tires, I know how it is being stuck in mud overnight freezing my ball$ off. It ain't no fun!!!

Toyo MT in the 265-75R16 they come in a E rating and they are quiet on street with good manners, ive hauled trailers and hay with them no prob. You do notice the tread blocks flex a little under torque, i have 22k on them now they are rated for 40k atleased and they are a MT, do good in snow and mud. I like them and would recomend them, if youre talkin real deep nasty mud maybe go with a little wider size. Hope this helps man!!

We use the Toyo MT's and still get stuck. The last two winters we have just left the 1994 cummins feed truck chained up on all fours all winter unless we need to go to town with it. Been lucky and haven't stuck it yet with chains. Take ten minutes-then the chains are off. Just part of life around here-just the way it is. Or, like you said earlier-"there is always the tractor".........
