John's Challenge - Part 2 John was lucky enough to be the recipient
of a tire test and a free set of
Green Diamond Tire
Icelander MT Mud Terrain tires.
However that meant that he was to be subjected to
some harsh testing and thrown into a few wicked mud
holes over the weekend up here in Leatherwood.
But John's not one to shy away from a challenger or
two (pounder) and he was very willing to get muddy.
We know this mud hole to make or break a vehicle or
two and this particular day, the mud in this hole
was more like the constancy of thick cement.
John's first attack on the mud hole or
trench was to slowly step down into the mud which
was a mistake. We quickly pulled him out to
take another shot at it. What he really needed
was a little momentum to get moving through the mud
and he got that on his second attempt. What we
discovered about these
Green Diamond Icelander MT
tires is that they could really throw
the mud around, meaning they were clearing the mud
out of the tread pretty easily and John was able to
move through the thick mud pretty good. What
was hanging him up was the lack of a rear locker.
The exit wall was about a 3 to 4 foot climb up and
out of the trench and he kept lifting the right rear
as he was trying to escape this trench of thick mud.
The next two pages and the video clips show the
fun he was having trying to get out of there.
We also summarized our opinion of the tires here:
