Where to Buy
 

The Dick Cepek Mud Country is one of the few expensive specialty brand mud tires recommended by reviewers. Critics say its tough sidewalls can scrape through sharp rocks without getting punctured, and the tire impresses experts in a deep-mud test at Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road magazine. Still, we found few reviews for this tire overall and very little feedback about its on-road performance. The Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar (*Est. $210) costs less and impresses experts and owners just as much off-road, with capable on-road performance in all weather conditions.

Off-road enthusiast websites are the best places to find reviews for this specialty tire. Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road magazine finds the Dick Cepek Mud Country excellent in its mud-only test, and a hobbyist at the Herd Of Turtles Four Wheel Drive Society also finds it best in mud. JP Magazine says the Mud Country is the best you can buy for dirt and rocks. Owner reviews at Offroaders.com describe the Mud Country's long-term performance.

1. Petersen's 4 Wheel & Off Road

Based solely on deep-mud performance, the Dick Cepek Mud Country places second in this head-to-head test of five mud tires. The Mud Country never disappoints testers, but the first-place Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radial performs a little bit better.

"If dry terrain is your game, these are the tires you should be running," reviewer Christian Hazel concludes at JP, a magazine for Jeep enthusiasts. Hazel tests the Dick Cepek Mud Country on- and off-road on two different vehicles in sand, mud, dirt and rocks.

3. Herd Of Turtles Four Wheel Drive Society

British Columbia's Herd of Turtles 4 Wheel Drive Society admits its name is comical, but member Wes Rempel writes a serious review, testing the Dick Cepek Mud Country on pavement, mud and rocks. He finds it flings mud out of the treads efficiently, but it doesn't stick to rocks as well as he expected. On pavement, he says the experience reflects the typical trade-offs expected of mud tires.
