i just got some motorway tyres (the makers of monoform), BFG muddy rip offs, i have no idea as to how good they are, they should last 30k's. This means for the price you cant go wrong. Mongrel's however are only $100 cheaper than the real thing, so the value difference is not so easily seen. In terms of quality, i think they may be alright, some people say they blow up under pressure etc.. i will tell you if this happens to me.

Mongrel by name Mongrel by nature.

I think they are just remanufactured tyres. So the carcass of the tyre could be a BFG, Goodyear what ever and then they just put a fresh coating of rubber on it.

Which means if you get a good base to start with you could already have an 8-ply tyre plus the extra coating of new rubber now you have one heavy, thick walled and treaded Mongrel S.O.B tyre. Tuff as nails.

hi Rickster

i have been using them for a while. have not had any problems with them.

speed limit on the highway 120k's so you will be fine, just dont use them for road driving long hauls, they do tell you all that stuff anyway.

Craig Maxwell drove the Outback challenge with them last year and then had them changed to his MQ shorty for the last 12 months and reckons theyre a great tyre, only vehicle on the challenge last year NOT to get a puncture. They sound like the deal. Was thinking of some for offroad tyres myself

What kind of money are we roughly talking about with these tyres. I think I heard $168 while back.

Good bush tyre, dont expect to put them on and do long distances at speed or have any handling, but for the sticks, they are reliable.
