Review of the Greenball Kanati Mud Hog Mud Terrain Tire


Though you may not have heard of the Greenball Corporation in the mainstream offroad community, Greenball is no stranger to offroad tires.  Since 1980, the Greenball Corp has been marketing ATV tires as well as many other specialty tires.  In 1995 the Greenball Corporation created GBC Motorsports to create an exclusive line of radical offroad tires for Quads and ATVs.  More recently in mid year 2011, Greenball released the Kanati Mud Hog to compete in an ever growing offroad tire market.  We spoke to a trail friend who has put a few thousand miles on a set of these tires and had seen a north eastern season on the trail and about 6500 miles of daily commuting in the Harrisburg PA area.


On-Road Performance


As with any mud terrain tire, road characteristics are not optimal when compared to a tire designed for the road, though easily tolerable.  The large lugs are fairly noisy with a decent amount of hum going down the road but as reported by the friend we spoke to, it was nothing he wasn't expecting with the purchase of a mud tire.  Handling though is very responsive with positive cornering and braking and true tracking down the road.  Overall happy with the road handling.

Off-Road Performance


The Kanati Mud Hog is a moderately aggressive radial design mud terrain tire that boasts 6, 8, or 10 ply tread construction depending on the size tire you look at.  Sidewalls offer 3-plys for decent protection from rocks.  The tread compound and pattern offer a decent amount of grip on the rocks especially when aired down.  After a few thousand miles of break-in time, we got some positive feedback about their trail manners over the rocks of Rausch Creek and so far the tires have held up pretty well with a few trips to the  rough rocks of the Creek with only a few small signs of being roughed up but nothing major.   The Mud Hogs have striking similarities to the first generation Goodyear Wrangler MT/R mud tire. The Greenball Kanati Mud Hog's offer a little more in the way of traction over the Wrangler MTR's with additional sipes in the center and outer lugs, which not only improve on-road handling and wet weather traction but helps to gain traction on the rocks.  On the sidewalls the Mud Hogs exhibit a rotational sidewall pattern engaging enough to catch the eye of an onlooker.  Though this sidewall pattern is probably not aggressive enough to actually propel the vehicle forward in deep mud as some other more aggressive mud tires do, it does have an interesting pattern that looks remarkably similar to the newer Goodyear Wrangler MTR Kevlar.  This extra rubber on the sidewalls add protection from sidewall damage aiding the 3-ply sidewalls.  Thanks to a decent tread pattern and large voids between the moderately aggressive outer lugs, the Mud Hog's hold their own in mud and have said to dug well in a few holes at the Creek.  Sand traction is apparently decent as well though our friend Mitch had not been to the beach with his Jeep.

Snow & Wet Weather Performance

On the road the Kanati Mud Hogs offer decent wet weather and snow traction thanks to a fair amount of siping.  A wet spring put the tires to the test within the first few thousand miles with overall very positive characteristics and decent wet weather traction.  A few snow events this past winter had our friend seeking some snow to dig in and he was happy with the aggressive traction the Mud Hogs offered both on road and off road where there was snow involved.


The overall summary of the Kanati Mud Hog was very positive after about 6500 miles and he felt they were a good value for the money.   The tread seems to be holding up well and road noise is still relatively minimal (for a mud tire).  The tires were rotated at about 5000 miles and are wearing evenly.


Feedback from Mitchell Lawson, Harrisburg PA - Vehicle 2005 Jeep TJ Unlimited.  Thanks Mitch.
