As per title what is your preferred fun tyre and why? What size? bead locks or not? Do you like mud, rocks, sand or a mixture ?

As for me....... only tried 35/10.5/15 simex centipede so far and love em! No beadlocks and dont like mud but hate getting stuck in it even more!.

Nitto Mud Grapplers.
It's the most aggressive tyre I have run and still drives brilliantly on road, dead smooth can't feel any lugs and there is 50mm voids between some lugs, tons of grip on wet roads. True sizing and very easy to balance, great quality tyre.
35s
Bead locked
Rock is my favourite terrain, but enjoy mud and sand also.

Had some 35" Pro comp Xterrains (316/75x16) they were great in sand, rocks dirt, clogged up a bit in mud, good on road when new. But once they were half worn became noisy and horrible on the road.

Love my 36" TSL Swampers, on Beadlock rims. Dont actually use them all that often, as i have a set of Q78 TSL's that just wont die !!

However, every time i bolt them on, i get an over wealming feeling of joy !!

Theyre bloody noisy, handle terribly on the road, shake like all poo untill the autobalance kicks in, theyre great !!

I have Maxxis trepadore radial in the 35s, they are nearly 5 years old, they have a really strong bead and it takes a lot of crap for them to start loosing air.
I prefere rock and I think wet rock is where they really shine.
I have also modifed the tread pattern and so far I am happy with the changes

awesome in the mud.
not sure about rocks yet. think i need to play with lowet pressures a bit as i only gone down to 18psi.
on road there bad for under steer in the wet. just means taking round abouts with bit more caution
