In the rocks we had acceptable results, though we feel the Rocker tread pattern would be better for traction. The Maddog's load range E probably didn't help, and the consistent tread pattern and large center lugs seem better suited for dirt and mud, so we got out of low range and headed for some dirt drifting in an abandoned wash. The Maddogs gripped excellently and supplied all the traction required for our tattered trophy truck.In the rocks we had acceptable results, though we feel the Rocker tread pattern would be b Pit Bull Tires has some new rubber for your wild animal of a 4x4. The MadDog, Rocker, and Growler are now available in radial construction. We recently fit a set 38.5x13.50R17LT Maddogs on Walker Evans beadlocks and took the pups for a walk around the block and up some dirt and rocky trails. Since Clampy isn't much of a street machine these days, we bolted the Maddogs to a friend's Cummins Dodge for a few weeks and quizzed him daily on his thoughts. The first word back was something about a full moon because these dogs howl. We went for a ride with him, and starting around 45 mph we definitely knew they were with us, but the noise isn't any louder than many other large mud tires. However, we did joke that Pitbull should co-engineer its next tires with the Dynamat noise control people.Since Clampy isn't much of a street machine these days, we bolted the Maddogs to a friend' The best way to describe these new radial Maddogs is by imagining a wild canine that you're trying to make into a house pet. It's possible you'll end up loving them, but not without a few sacrifices. They are built for heavy-duty trucks with a high load rating, and like any good hound they're not afraid to make some noise. All things considered, we'll keep them around and will surely put many more miles on them, but like a special needs critter they're not for everyone. We've enjoyed all the bias-ply Pit Bull tires so far, so we were looking forward to getting the radial versions in the dirt. After bolting them to our Toyota test truck, Clampy, we hit the dirt and found them great for all-around use.We've enjoyed all the bias-ply Pit Bull tires so far, so we were looking forward to gettin Once you overlook the noise, these tires seem to settle in as part of the family. In fact, our friend towed all the way to South Dakota with them on his Dodge and had zero problems in control, ride, or punctures. Plus the higher weight rating seems perfectly suited for this type of heavier vehicle.Once you overlook the noise, these tires seem to settle in as part of the family. In fact, The Pit Bull Maddog M/T radial is a mud-terrain tire with large tread voids, over-the-shoulder lugs for sidewall traction, sipes, and rim guards, and it is made from a tear- and chip-resistant rubber compound. We really like the looks of these tires (aesthetics are important in most 4x4 tire buying decision making). The sidewall design's gearlike imprint makes the tires stand apart from other rubber. As for price, we found them at various online retailers for about $380 per tire.The Pit Bull Maddog M/T radial is a mud-terrain tire with large tread voids, over-the-shou SOURCES Walker Evans Racing P.O.
