3' of mud and 35" tires you will be stuck instantly. 40" plus is the only way to go. I have the new 42" TSL SX2 and they are pretty sweet!

If the mud is sloppy and has a bottom, go skinny. If it pretty sloppy and you want to attempt to stay on top, go wide.

The reason I dont want bigger tires is I only got a 6 inch lift and I dont want to have to compete with people that have 10 grand in there motors. The classes are set up unfair if you run 35's you run stock class with mildly built motors any class above that in tire size you can pretty much run whatever except nitrous and blowers. There are guys out ther pushin 700 hp. I know I could turn em but I just dont have the lift for it.

Just do some trimin or even do a body lift because it's a mud truck and put 38's. I've seen 40's on a 6 inch lift and 2 inch body lift

if your competing its probably going to be some pretty deep mud, so skinnys arent going to work great for you. for skinnys there has to be a bottom that they can dig down to.
i would say if this is only a play toy i would go as wide as you can, lighten the truck as much as you can and keep the wide tires spinning as fast as you can. should keep you towards the top of the muck.
thats just my opinion though, everyone goes about mud a little different.

Hmm whats the different sizes? I found that 12.5 is a decent width. I agree with everyone as to they slice down. But, if your doing any trail riding or hill climbs you want a little wider set.

Check out this truck that 4wheels with us :rockin
