buckshot mudders in 16" (not Maxxis)

P78X16C (33X9.50X16) BUCKSHOT MUDDER BIAS PLY BSW - GATEWAY TIRE

Just thought I'd post these, and the price is unexpectedly low.

I'm actually kind of surprised that no national publication even talks about these tires. These are much cheaper than equivalent Interco tires and apparently are virtually bulletproof.

Wish I knew about these before I blew $300 a tire on SX's. Does anyone know why none of the establishment media outlets / internet pundits ever talk about these? Are they secretly terrible?

Apparently there's a harder compound version of the same tire called a "Grip Spur".

I think their disclaimer pretty well sums it up:

RECOMMENDED FOR OFF-ROAD USE ONLY!

These tires are street legal DOT approved but do not have any type of ride or balance warranty. These tires are great for off-roading but ride awful on the street and are near impossible to balance.

The old bias ply Buckshot has been brought back from the grave. The bias ply Buckshot was always a favorite for old Jeep owners and off-roaders looking for great traction in a tall, narrow tire but with no concerns about ride or wear.

I had a set of Co-op Grip Spurs in 750 x 16. They were awesome but still seemed to have very soft compound. They are still going on Lyle McMullens 88" I saw him running them at the MAR. They were awesome in the mud but sucked on the road.

Their on-road manners keep them from being mounted to most street driven trucks. Their relative small size keep them from being mounted to trailer queens.

a friend ran these on his International double cab pickup in a 9.00x16 and liked them a lot. They would develop flat spots if let sit for a while, but once the tires warmed up the spots went away and they had no trouble cruising at 60. If they are tricky to balance, you could load them up with air-soft bb's to reduce most of the vibrations.

I would guess no national publication talks about these because they are not sponsored to do so. I remember a "winch shoot out" in a 4x4 magazine where the Warn was the only winch to have a mechanical failure, but some how was still recommended as the best purchase at the end of the day ::

I have had several sets on my series trucks. They are great off road but they are noisy and will cup without proper rotating.
