Side Wall
The new Mud-Terrains have an especially tough sidewall, virtually eliminating the Achilles heel of the older Mud-Terrain. BFG said that this is due to larger sidewall tread, a more cut-resistant rubber compound, and sidewall cords with a claimed 33 percent increase in strength. Our abuse of these tires was inhumane, stuffing them into narrow rock channels, scraping them against sharp brush and rocks, and climbing our heavy pig of a Jeep through obstacles on the sidewall alone. Though we could see some wear and tear, we never did hear the hissing of a puncture.
