Looking for Tires? Suggestions?

I am looking to get some 33's for my cherokee and was wondering what eveyone else is running and how they like them on and off road. I am looking for a mud terrain that will hold up ok on road. Jeep spends a good deal of time in mud but has a long paved path to get to it and i need something that will hold up. I was looking into getting Maxxis Buckshot Mudders because they are cheaper and i am poor at the moment but if they are junk i want to go with BFG Mud terrains and wait to get the rest of the money. Any suggestions would help or if anyone is interested in getthin rid of a set of 33's in northern ohio let me know.

I have run the Kumho mud tires on my Dakota. Great mudders and wear good on highway.

Have had good luck with Coopers as well.

ppppppooooosssssttt iiiiiinnnnn ttttthhhhhhheeeee ttttiiiirrrrrreeeee ffffffooooorrrrruuuummmmm



p.s. For onroad driving of a mud tire, roll the toyo open country M/Ts. hard tread = long street life

I'm running MT/Rs with much love and decent road wear

If you're looking for cheap, I have 235/75-15 all-terrain Liberators from Wal-Mart. Have done OK puddle-jumpin and a bit o' mud.

It's not a mudder, it's a snowmobile. OK, maybe a little mud.

I've heard a lot of good things about buckshots, about everybody has had a set at one time or another. I can't tell you about how long they would last because everyone I know drives full size Chevys or Fords. But they have a pretty good reputation around where I live.

I've heard a lot of good things online about the TraXus MT online, but I don't know anyone personally that runs them. I've heard they are good for 40K miles.

'96 XLT MANual Ford Ranger 151,XXX miles (113,XXX when purchased), mostly stock except for Cooper A/T tires and a CB
'85 Toyota Pickup 156,000 miles 22R, on 33"s

you know, I bought 33" baja claw radials in the fall cuz of a $150 rebate (not yet installed), and now I kind of wish I went with TrXus M/Ts. I see a lot of people running them

I don't know if you are interested but I have a spare 33in Remington Mud Brute... I am trying to sell for $50 in the sale section.... It would save you from having to pay full price for your fifth tire.. I am located in eastern Indiana.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=237374

As far as a recomendation I have always been impressed with Interco's tires. But if you are on a budget... Mud Rovers do alright too.

used to be a jeep guy... sorry I crossed over to the Land Rover world. Best 4x4xfar... ;p

BTT I like the suggestions and am keeping them in mind but most of them are above my price range. Has anyone had any bad experiences with the buckshots seems everyone tells me there is a better tire i just want to know if there is anything bad about the maxxis tire.

Go with the toyo M/T's they are around 100-120 and are a great tire both on and off road.
