Dick Cepek Fun Country...No Love?

Iím thinking of swapping my 285 C-Load KO2s with only 5,000 miles out for the DC Fun Country. I love the KO2 and have no complaints other than that I need a more aggressive tire for my muddy off-roading needs.

I have researched the Fun Country tire for some time and can find next-to-no reviews on them. They seem like a nice hybrid design without going full MT (Think Cooper ST Maxx). Anyone have any input?

ANYONE run DCs or have any experience at all? Itís a well-known brand in the Jeep world. Just wondering why no one runs them here.

If you need MT, why not run one of the latest designs like KM3 or Firestone MT2? I am sure they are much more civilized on road than earlier designs.

I just ordered a set of the Mickey Thompson ATZ P3's in 295/70/17 They seem to have great reviews, they're an aggressive AT, hard to beat.

I guess Iím trying to stay away from full MT because of the perceived increase in road noise and decrease in street manners, which matters equally to me. I also need a good snow performer and I havenít seen enough positive statements about MTs to make me confident.

DCs are made and owned by a reputable company so they didnít strike me as being a poor manís tire. Maybe Iíve got it wrong. Theyíre AT tires built on an MT carcass so it seems like the perfect blending for my needs and the needs of many. Maybe Iím in the minority since literally no one here runs them or mentions them.

That sounds interesting. Our lack of knowledge should not deter you... I think there was a recent thread where someone said they used DC for a long time but have moved on. Maybe do a search and PM that person to see why.

Bump.

I just came across a screaming deal on the DC trail country exp. It looks slightly more tame than the Fun Country but still plenty capable.

The price Iím getting in 285/70-17 is right on par with standard load Falken AT3W in the same size...and the DCs are load range E. It has me curious but again reviews are scarce.

I just went with the Nitto Ridge Grapplers. For a brand thatís been around forever and claims to be the ones who started the off road tire segment, the utter lack of reviews makes it hardly worth the risk.

Dick Cepek tires are made by Cooper in the USA. I don't really see that as a risk. There are not a lot of reviews, but I haven't found a negative one yet. So I went with the trail country exp. After the instant $100 rebate, they were comparable to the Chinese tire prices. I'll try to update after installing and riding on them for awhile.

Please do. Iíve long moved on but Iím not opposed to trying out a less known option. Different is good.
