Bud’s Tyres have the best cheap mud tyres on the coast. Muddies are something a 4WD owner simply cannot go without. 4×4 mud-terrain tyres are designed for a distinct purpose, to go off the beaten-track. In the off-road world you can go anywhere with mud tyres. The bigger the better. If you often find yourself driving through bush tracks, sharp slopes, uneven trails, jagged surfaces, loose soil, mud and sand mud tyres might just be for you. Mud tyres are ideal for the roughest of off-road conditions. Alternatively, all terrain tyres may be a better option if your off-road adventures are limited.


Mud tyres are designed for performance with a softer rubber compound, wide gaps and large tread blocks to get you out of every sticky situation. The construction allows the tyre to be more puncture resistant and durable. Muddies are recognisable with their aggressive tread pattern and dominating features including more tread which often speak to their size. They are self-cleaning to provide maximum grip off-road. On the shoulder (between the tread and sidewall) of mud tyres are side bites to bite into the walls of ground ruts and terrain. When you are crawling up tricky terrain side bites help to achieve a forward motion.

The Benefits

  • Self-cleaning as the tyre spins
  • Tread design can cut through mud
  • Superior traction and grip

The Disadvantages

  • Noise- mud tyres are loud when driving with them however are even louder on the highway and bitumen, particularly at high speeds.
  • Cost
  • Fuel economy
  • Longer stopping distance

All Terrain

If MT tyres sound like they would cater for some but not all of your needs, AT tyres might just be for you. If you occasionally go off-road but spend most of your time in the car on the road all terrain tyres are your match made in heaven. The design is varied from a highway terrain tyre in that it can go anywhere your 4×4 can go. This includes bitumen, sand, mud, rock and loose soil. The number one concern with an All Terrain tyre is compromising comfort and safety in your day-to-day life. With a Mud Terrain tyre- you will be without question. Ultimately, they won’t be as smooth as the best passenger tyre on the market but with todays technology they are pretty much just as good.

It is fair enough that you would still want durability, comfort, minimal noise, a good looking tyre, superior braking, safety and longevity. With the right AT tyre you can have it all… with very little compromise. For example, you may have to go a slightly noisier tyre if you were looking for a tough, aggressive and durable tyre.
