Review of the Dunlop Radial Mud Rover 

The Dunlop Radial Mud Rover is kind of your "middle of the road" mud tire that does "ok" in various conditions.  Its lugs offer decent mud traction with the help of large voids spaced out enough to assist with the self cleaning of mud and debris.  Aired down the sidewalls flex good however are quite thin and vulnerable with a low ply rating and a lack of wrap around tread.  In snow and sand this tire does about average when compare to other mud terrain tires.  Highway manners are better than expected from a mud tire with less than moderate noise level however its lack of sipes in the lugs gives it poorer traction on wet or icy roads.  Tread life is also better than average.  Cost is on the low side of mud terrain tires.  Available sizes up to 35".

Dunlop Press Release:

DUNLOP TIRES ANNOUNCES THE ADDITION OF 4X4 ENTHUSIAST SIZES

BUFFALO, NY – Dunlop Tires has announced the expansion of the Dunlop Radial Rover RV and Dunlop Radial Mud Rover product lines with the addition of three “4X4 enthusiast sizes”. The new LT305/70R16 D, LT315/75R16 D and 35X12.50R17 C sizes provide four wheel drive enthusiasts with wider, taller tire options for 16” and 17” diameter wheels. “We developed these sizes to meet the evolving demands of the 4WD Enthusiast market”, states Ed Shaffer, Dunlop’s Corporate Manager of Product Marketing. “These sizes are equivalent, in overall dimensions, to the popular trail running 33 and 35X12.50R15 sizes in 16 and 17” rim diameters.”

 “The new Radial Rover RV and Radial Mud Rover sizes will be ideal for both the true off-road enthusiast who needs maximum ground clearance and the Pickup or SUV owner who really wants to fill that wheel well”, adds Shaffer.

The Radial Rover RV is an all-terrain light truck performance radial that's ideally balanced for on-street handling, off-road traction and long mileage. The wide, aggressive all-terrain pattern features rugged tread blocks with deep lateral grooves for powerful off-road grip. The RV's variable pitch tread design breaks up harmonics for an exceptionally quiet ride while it's more heat resistant MEP tread compounds provide long, dependable treadlife.

The Dunlop Radial Mud Rover is for the ultimate in off-road performance and vehicle control. The Radial Mud Rover features a wide, super aggressive tread pattern that's designed to handle the toughest terrain. The deep grooves and lateral edges deliver maximum forward and side grip. The alternating shoulder scallops provide additional lateral grip and reduce understeer. And the Mud Rover's wide-open shoulder design provides exceptional self-cleaning capability. The Mud Rover also offers six full plies under tread for superior strength, stability and long lasting durability.

I used a set of the Dunlop Mud Rovers on my Toyota Pickup for many years and put a lot of highway miles on them.  Most the the wheeling was on old logging trails but they saw their share of mud and rocks.  Aired down they did pretty good on the logging trails and in the mud.  They did pretty well on rocks too as long as they were aired down to about 12 psi.  After a lot of highway miles they lost some of the offroad traction as they wore down but did well to the end when I blew out a sidewall on a pipe hidden under the water.  After looking at the gapping hole in the sidewall I realized the sideway wasn't too thick.  But then the pipe was a jagged metal edge and I think it pinched against the rim.  On the highway I didn't mind the mild noise however as they wore the balance of the tires degraded quite a bit (maybe I lost some weights).  The nice thing about these were the cost.  Pretty cheap compared to the other mud tires at about 120 bucks each when I got them.  When new they were impressive.  After the blowout though, I went with the Dunlop All Terrain since I had a Jeep in the works and the Toyota was to be retired from offroad duty soon after.

I put a set of these on my 97 Dodge 4X4 extended cab. they were 285/75/16. The same day i got them i went to a mud hole out at my cusins house and got stuck up the the frame. i could not open one of my doors. they did all right in the mud but i got stuck about 10 times with them. the lugs would not clear to well and would turn in to slicks mainly in clay and that nasty black mud. they got cuts and chunks tacken out of them somehow. on the road they sucked. the brakes would lock up when it would rain.I only got about 10,000 miles out of them. i got a 2001 dodge 0ff road and got a set of 33/12.50/17 baja claws and never been happer. i will never get a nother set of dunlop mudrovers, the only good thing is they were around 120 each.

I live in an area of Maryland with a lot of corn fields and woods and mud pits. Not to mention I drive to school every day. I have a set of 30 inch Mud Rovers on my 1996 Blazer. Yeah, I take them off road occasionally and they work GREAT! I would recommend these as a top 3 choice to anyone with a low budget. They are the greatest tire when compares to the Mickey Thompson's and all those high-pricers. I haven't gotten stuck in mud that was below my doors, but I'm sure I will eventually. They handle decently on the road with only a little sound/vibration. I dunno what that guy was talkin bout when he mentioned brakes, because I work on cars, and I honestly don't see how tires could affect your brakes locking... possibly your braking performance, but not your brake themselves. Overall, they're an excellent tire for the price, and they go perfectly with the saying "you get what you pay for."

People need to understand four wheeling to understand the quality of a tire. If your Dodge cant power the mud off of your lugs, don't blame the tire, blame your gear ratio, or drive train. These tires clean very well with horsepower, they are mud tires and are a noisy bunch. Dunlop Mud Rovers are the best value on mudders period. I have owned BFG's, Swampers, and Goodyear, (all mudders) and none of them lasted longer or served better than my Dunlop Mud Rovers, This is the first 35" mud tire I will be replacing on my K5 with the same brand. These are maximum traction tires intended for maximum off road use, and no other tire will do more for the price!

I put 305/70/16 on my 1999 Z71. These tires have worn down really fast. I have put about 16000 miles on them and they are starting to worp and they are really loud now. I would have rather spent the extra 100-200 dollars to get BFG mud terrains.

I had these tires on my 97 Wrangler for about 15,000 miles - I had 6 of them replaced due to punctures in the side wall - Every time it seemed I was out on a trail a stick or light rub would tear up the side wall. These tires left me flat. I don't like them and would not recommend them for anyone who drives off road. I lost two on the Rubicon trail and had to borrow a tire to finish the trail. The wear on them is awful. After the trip to the Rubicon I tried to have the two tires replaced under the Just Tires warranty - which is the worst - and they would not replace them anymore. I have been running BF Goodrich 35's since I replaced the Dumlops and have not had a flat tire since - all on the same trails. Don't waste your money on these tires - spend a little more - you get what you pay for - Oh yeah I paid $150.00 per tire for the BFG's. I have a new set of Goodyear MTR's in the garage that I am going to try next.
