Trailcutter R/t

I run a M/T tire now and want to get rid of the noise and vibration. The BFG is my first choice for an all-terrain,but the Trailcutters are alot cheaper and have a tread pattern close to the BFG's. Has anyone ran these tires? Good or Bad?Trailcutter Radial R/T

Never heard of them. Have heard great things about BFG A/T's. You should also consider the Nitto's and Toyo's as well.

i never ran a set myself but i have had sevaral customers that have run them and they all said they bite good in lite mud and get good miles and for the price you can't beat them,another tire that you mite want to take a look to is the Dean Wildcat SXT Dean - Light Truck Tires another nice one is the Mastercraft Courser CT Mastercraft - Light Truck Tires heres one i hear good results from Cooper Discover ST Cooper Tires. Don't Give Up A Thing. Ultra-High Performance, Passenger, Light Truck, SUV, Motorsport, Motorcycle and Commercial Tires oh and did i mention Cooper builds all these tire mentioned above and also the Trailcutter and any one of these tires will do a great job for ya..

I ran the Trail Cutter M/T's they were good tires, wore great. After the summer I might go back to them. But I am also very partial to my Wild Country TXR. But the Trail Cutter R/T's don't look bad at all either. They are actaully more then the M/T's. I like running off brand tires. They seem to wear better then those big brand tires. Plus they are cheaper.

Thanks for the info guys! I think I'll give them a try, as long as somebody didn't have terrible experience with them. I like off brand tires too and its good to hear other peoples opinion that have ran them.

Really, by running an all-terrain instead of a mud-terrain I was hoping to get away from that. Plus I live on a mile of gravel and it chews the crap out of the M/T's.

I just letting you know my experince. I know the tread pattern on the R/T's they are kinda more of a mix between an a/t and m/t. Being that the knobs are kinda wide spread you may need to rotate them. I say just follow what the tire shop tells you.

ya keep them rotated every 3 to 5k miles for best wear but the best thing to do is watch how the front ones are wearing and if they show any signs of irregular wearing rotate them..
