I have the Mud Countrys on my truck, there not bad but definatly not the best, they suck in the rain and snow unless theres like a foot of snow on the ground. They do ok in the mud but next set of tires deffinatly wont be DC's... thats my input on the mud countrys...sorry I didnt really answer your question.

Decent wear and typical all terrain traction. Not that great on snow and ice IMO.

I really like them

My last set lasted 85,000km (53,000 miles). I liked them so much I bought another set. They are a good all purpose tire that does well in the mud, snow, ice, and doesn't chunk out on gravel roads. Will buy another set when these ones wear out.

Do you rotate them every 5k? I'm debating between these and BFG AT.

I like my Bridgestone Revo 2's. But I don't require an aggressive tread, just decent tire wear, not too loud, good performance on snow, ice, and rain, pretty good offroad

I think I rotated my last set once.

I guess it depends on what you are doing with them. If you're mostly on the pavement, BF is good. If you take them on the gravel they will tear apart fast. BF has a little better compound for snow and ice as it's much softer. By the same token, I haven't had any trouble with the FC II's in the winter. In the mud, the BF's will ball up faster....just means you have to spin them more to keep them clean.
