ATV/UTV MUD TIRES – Time to turn the slop    By the staff of Dirt Wheels


In the last few years, thousands of people have migrated to the southern states. Whether it’s for the lower cost of housing, a better way of life, politics or the weather, the move also comes with a change in riding culture. You see, in the South, the riding is not about speed; it’s about exploring forests and mud parks that dot the landscape. That type of riding takes a different type of tire. We have put together a list of tire recommendations for just such an occasion. The companies have written their best description of the tire for you.



The MotoHavok is like no other UTV mud/ag tire on the market. Innovating the best-in-class ag-style tire is no easy accomplishment. EFX combined unparalleled deep mud traction with a smooth, hard-pack ride quality to ensure no matter what terrain you’re on, they have you covered. They didn’t stop engineering after they nailed the tread.  The MotoHavok is the only ag-style mud tire to feature an ultra-deep wheel-lip protector, armoring your custom wheels from debris when in motion.  The tread is bulletproof, using a 6-ply carcass with an enormous 2-plus-inch lug pattern to give you ample traction in both drive and reverse.

The Interco Bogger is an absolute dominant tire upgrade for any ATV/UTV owner. The 47-inch Mega BAU boasts a tread design similar to the 38s and a nearly 3-inch-deep lug depth, and it’s set up for owners with a custom-built machine looking for a tire that will dominate any terrain it can handle. A host of companies have tried to emulate the Bogger, but there is only one true Bogger in the powersports market, the Interco Bogger ATV/UTV.

The AT 171 is a 6-ply tubeless tire that is offered for rim sizes 14–24 inches.

According to Braven, these tires use the same stoic-rubber compound  as they use on some of their off-road LT tires that have proven themselves time and again. The lugs have been designed using Fang technology that wrap down the sidewall and add extra strength and traction to the shoulder and sidewall areas. Radial tires will be available soon, while smaller 12-inch ATV sizes are available now.

Sitting on top of an 8-ply-rated carcass is a 2-inch center lug that’s increased to 2 1/4 inches at the outside edge to help paddle across the pits faster than the competition.
