    Crawler tyres.

    Over here in the UK were quite limited compared to the USA, no Pitbulls and some other brands but a good choice with Proline's, i have a couple of sets of Hyrax which i think are great, i'm looking in to getting some BF Goodrich Krawlers so what do you guy's think of these or would you recommend another tread pattern in the Proline range.

    Where i live it's mainly trailing with a good variety of terrain, tracks, hills, gravel bottom streams, tree roots and steep banks etc.

    I live in Eastern Pennsylvania in the US. Our terrain sounds very similar to yours. My top three tires are Proline Hyrax, Proline TSL XL Super Swampers, and Pitbull Rock Beasts.

    If you haven't tired the Proline TSL XL Super Swampers I would recommend those. They are now offered in the Predator compound which is great. I've been using the TSL's in G8 compound for years and I've been happy with them. Proline is having a Cyber Monday sale today so I ordered TSL XL's in Predator compound to try.

    Pitbull does make great tires, but they are super expensive compared to Proline and I'm not convinced they work any better. I think Proline tires are still the best out there, but it's a personal preference and very dependent on your terrain.

    You are welcome! I'm glad I could help.

    I hope you like the tires that I recommended.

    Another, new option to checkout are the JConcepts Landmines. They are newly released so I have no experience with them yet. I do have a set on order though. They look similar to Pitbull Rock Beasts.
