Kanati Mud Hog Tire Review & Rating
The Kanati Mud Hog is not a tire that a lot of drivers are familiar with, but it’s actually a tire produced by Greenball, which have been making quality ATV and motorcycle tires for years now. This M/T tire is designed for drivers of light pickups and SUV’s that seek superior off-road performance as well as dependable on-road manners.
A tougher and more puncture resistant tread compound is molded into an aggressive tread pattern that features deeper lugs and staggered shoulders. The tire’s higher voids are designed to provide increased traction in mud, clay, sand and gravel, which is an area this tire performs well in.
Added siping around the tread help give this tire added traction on hard-pack. It also provides better grip on snow and ice. A reinforced 3-ply sidewall offers superior resistance to punctures, tears and other damage you often encounter out on the trails.
A nice surprise on the Mud Hog is its self-cleaning abilities. It clears out the mud with the best tires in this class due in part to the alternating shoulder lugs.
Inside the tire you will find a 6-ply tread that includes 3 polyester, 2 steel and 1 nylon cap ply. A reinforced bead with a built-in rim guard is also included on this tire. Various sizes are available ranging from 15-20 inches.
- Excellent off-road traction
- Self-cleans mud very well
- Competent on-pavement performance
- Quieter than many other mud tires on the street
- Tread life is better than average
- Would like to see added sizes
Despite the fact that few people have heard much about the Kanati Mud Hog, it performs quite well overall. We like the aggressive looks, which is kind of like a combination of the Goodyear MTR and Nitto Trail Grappler.
Performance on hard-pack, mud, sand, dirt, gravel and rock is very good on this model, and the tires self-clean as well as most any tire in this class. Driving on the street you’ll find competent road manners and ride that is a little more quiet than other M/T tires, although it does put out a hum at highway speeds. We’re not saying there isn’t noise because there is, but it just isn’t as loud as many others in this class.
Overall, we’ve known Greenball for their well-built ATV and motorcycle tires for years. This new expansion into the light truck mud tire market is a big hit in our opinion. Sure, there are other tires in this class that offer a little higher performance, but we rank this as a middle of the pack performer.
