Default Mudstar Tires Anyone Have Them?

they are listed as an economical offroad tire.... i got quoted ~$160 each for a 315/75/16 for the Stroke..... they look alot like a Buckshot Mudder to me.....

I loved the old buckshots. Don't know much about these though. I'd guess they'd wear fast for as cheap as they are but hard to say.

the old bucshots and the maxxis buckshots are different. the maxxis buckshots wear good on the road. I had them in the 35 size tire and they did pretty good in everything and were priced right

if anyone is still interested in the mudstars they are a good tire for the money not sure on towing or on a bigger truck but i had a set that lasted 27K with driving like i was racing in formula one on and off road never rotated them and bad front wheel bearings and spindles. and a ford 8.8 as long as they are cheap its a good deal

also they do ok in sand pretty good in mud and hard dry rocky stuff aswell but the road ride is the major downside of these tires
