    Gateway Buckshot Mudders

    Howdy gang, with the roll cage project coming to fruition, I'm looking for Gateway (bias) Buckshot Mudders 31x10.5x15. I've found several dead links so far.
    Remembering when I ran these monsters on my '78 full time 4wd Blazer, that beast was unstoppable~! Mud, Snow & even ice, they never let me down. They did wander just a bit on the freeway, but 'Black Betty' stays off the big road.
    Any links I would be most grateful for.
    Thanks for checking this and a lift of the lynch lid.
    Gus
    Quick fixes are so named for how long they stay fixed.
    If you run out of gas, no matter which way you decide to push, the closest gas station will always be uphill and in the other direction. Corollary: The likelihood of running out increases when all of the nearby gas stations are closed.
    The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep.

    Found this, you probably did too but all the links are dead...

    It looks like Gateway Tire Company is now owned by Dunlap & Kyle but is primarily a wholesale and retail business. Doesn't look like they market their own tire...

    The Buckshot Mudder looks a lot like...


    Interco Super Swamper LTB

    I've seen posts on other forums talking about the Buckshot Mudders just a far back as Sep-Oct 2009 but can't find anything current.

    Maybe a casualty of the Recession?

    Yep it's much similar to that Interco, and the price was right on those Gateways

    Looks like you found 'em. I forgot all about NTW. But the price don't look all that spectacular.

    Re: Gateway Buckshot Mudders

    Thanks for the link phall but the radials don't share the aggressivness of the bias ply I've had so much success with in the past like these Gateway Compared to the Maxxis (among others) As you can see, there's a vast difference between the old school of these and the Radials

    Re: Gateway Buckshot Mudders

    Yep, I agree that if you can handle the on-road anomalies of a bias ply tire, they are just plain hard to beat for hard-core off road stuff. That's why I'd take a look at the Interco stuff. Although I've never ran their tires before, plenty of guys swear by them.

    Re: Gateway Buckshot Mudders

    I used to run Buckshot's back in the day, great tire. As many miles as I put on them they must've been radials.

    I run the plain TSL on the trail now, and up to a few hours on the road to get to the trail, definitely liveable.

    Re: Gateway Buckshot Mudders

    Ultimately I went with the BFG KM2's and, despite their agressive tread they don't seem to wander a bit on the highway. Have yet to try 'em off road as I was taking care of other issues.

    I haven't seen any lately even used but if you want and aggressive tread super swamper irocks are about as good as it gets the down side is the don't last long on the street (really soft rubber) if you want something cheap and still close in tread pattern as buckshots are medalist mud kings I had them on my 85 4runner I went everywhere

    Re: Gateway Buckshot Mudders

    Since I don't take 'Betty' out all that often, tire wear is of little importance to me. I just wanted that tread I remember from years ago. The KX 2's seem to be right up there so I'm going to keep 'em for now.
