I am running Firestone Destination M/T 315/70R17 and I love them. They definitely chew through the mud and get ya through.

BFG KM2, I as well as many others race on them. They're excellent tires.

Toyo M/T hands down. I have had several sets and have zero complaints about them. Well worth every penny....

Super Swamper TSL FTW!!!

The KM2s are good til you get them in soupy mud or clay. The Firestone's are a decent tire too, had them back in the day. Uses the same ol mud pattern that's been around for decades. The TOYO MT is a glorified all terrain......sad sad mud tire

Really depends on what you need it for and the type of terrain that's around you. If you really need a great mud tire and ok street performance, couldn't be a better choice than a Swamper.

Nitto Mud or Trail Grapplers, I have the Trails and love them so far, 15,000 miles and still look new.

If we could get some more guide lines....
Aggressive- Cepek Crushers, nitto mud graps
Long lasting- nitto trail graps, firestone MT, BFG KM2
I would stay with those because they toyo MT and cooper STT are more of an aggressive all terrain. I have used pretty much all of the conventional mud tires, back when the BFG KM was around. The best tire for the buck I would have to say Pro- comp mud terrain. Mine lasted 50,000 miles on a 3/4 ton that pulled quite often. Worked pretty good in mud and sand wouldn't go in any swamp but it is as close to the original BFG as I could find.

ive ran nitto mud grapplers, and loved em. currently running goodyear wrangler mts, and i love them as well. mud grapplers have a decent price as well. it all depends on what rim size you have tho, for price at least.
