alot of people are going to tell you they are bad on the highway with no treadlife. but ive had a good experience when i had my mudgrapplers. i had about 35K on mine before I got something new. they did pretty good in the rain and were awesome in the mud! they would throw huge chunks of mud and i never feared of tearing them up. they are really loud on the road, i dont know if that bothers you, but i didnt care. i loved the howling!! here are some pics.

I love the tread pattern and think its the best out there. Loudest tire I've ever heard, decent in the mud but nothing impressive. Although I have used super swampers in the mud so its not as much of a comparison to a true mud terrain. I may get them again depending on what size tire I go with.

I love the looks and they are very versatile. I had the 35x12.5x17.

I just got mine installed about two weeks ago, unfortunately havent had time to take them in any mud. Was planning a beach trip this weekend but ended up changing my mind. Did a ton of research on tires and after driving a buddies truck and hearing / feeling them i was sold that very instance. I used to be into imports so i guess i got used to *loud* and after getting my truck I needed something. This tire definately was it. When driving it, I feel like im in an airplane with the sound. I love toyos but these (atleast here) are far less common so they stand out by far, and they look very aggressive just for the mud terrain. (minus swamper etc of course). Everyone I work with loves them, and every car shop been to so far loves them. I will take some pics tomorrow for you so you can get a glimpse of them on my truck.

The guy at the America's tires whos actually a buddy of my brothers got 30k on his first set.. and little over 35k on his second set. Another guy working there is rocking them and claimed he got 35k.

I did a ton of research on these tire and many people claim 30-35k.. (of course some higher) but didn't see too many lower than 30k.

Thats exactly how long mine have last me as well. Just depends on how well you take care of them too. That means rotate and balance them at proper intervals. Mine was every 3-5k with an oil change.

Do you need a lift with 35x12.5 mud graps or would a leveling kit be fine on a 05 f150

Don't take my word on this as my truck is an 03. I used to do research to see how big I could clear. From where I read 33 was the largest (my truck is 4wd, the 2wd said 31s). It also was saying with a leveling kit you could clear 35's. While I don't know how much these would rub and how they would treat the truck, I just went with a 5 in suspension lift and I clear them decently well. Turning in a parking lot if i counted my turn from 0 being straight to 100 being fully cranked. I would say 3% of that turn (around 60 degrees) I rub on the inside of my fender just for that 3% due to the inner bump on the fender wall. Thats the only time I rub though.
