AAAHHHH!!! The "REAL" buckshot radial mudders!!!! They are GREAT tires!! Those new wannabe buckshot's are a joke. The "buckshot mudders". They wont hold a candle to the old skool "buckshot radial mudders" like you have there!! Looks Great on that truck too!!! Just watch though, they are a little soft, and will wear kinda quick. But not near as bad as a swamper.

Yep, we need to get Mark from Coaltrain and gather a bunch of us together for a M/G this summer. Since the sun came out the "nice" trucks have come out of storage around the area.

I don't believe they make the "old" buckshot radial mudder in 17's. Only 15 and 16" and maybe 16.5" sizes. I also wish they made them in 17's!

Those are made by Gateway Tire. The "new" buckshot mudders that you see around are all made by Maxxis Tire. They are a decent tire, but nowhere as good as the gateways were. I didn't know they still made the gateways.

Hey TEXS, where did you get them at?

I had a Grismer tire in Trotwood order them for me(ask for Kieth). National Tire Depot also sells them, I had a hell of a time finding the 305/85 R 16.

Texs, those aren't Maxxis tires though. They're Gateway Tires. Look at the sidewall.

Where is National Tire Depot?
