Hi,

Has the BF Goodrich Krawler Mud Terrain replaced the old Mud Terrain or are they both still available? How do they compare with noise levels?

Cheers.

This is the range so no they aren't replacing just an addition.

The website shows the Krawler which is a competition tyre. It does not show the tyre I am writing about.

The ARB LC200 has Mud Terrains that have the Krawler tread pattern but with sipes in the tread blocks. This can be seen in ARB advertising.

Cheers.

Yeah I see what you mean, maybe they were getting too many complaints about wet weather driving and have moddified the tyre for safety on the road. Other than the sipes, it looks virtually the same.

There is the original MudTerrain KM1 pattern and the new KM2 pattern which looks like the Krawler. They call it Krawler inspired.

Currently they sell the old version in 15" and 16" and the new KM2 in larger sizes. It is like a two step release. They will delete the old one in all sizes in about 6 months.

I have them and they a a bit quiter, but still not as quite as AT's. They are great on rocks etc and seem more open than the old ones.

They are supposedly 30% stronger in the sidewalls.

Next year they will also release

Not sure if they will do all of these in AU, this is from the US site.
