i konw their not on your list but check out the Dunlop Mud Rovers. they are really good off road and decent in the snow and really good in the rain.....for mud tires. and they are pretty cheap on www.Tirerack.com

Me and my friends did acid in the woods, 'cuz there was much less chance of running into an authority fugure. But we ran into a bear. And that is way more of a buzz kill. I looked around and saw my friend swearing to prevent forest fires. Later, he came up to me and said, "Mitchell. Smokey is way more intense in person.- Mitch Hedberg

you may need to get a BB to run those 30's with no rubbing, before i put my BB on my 2000 i ran 30 x 9.5 Kumho MT's for a few days and it rubbed pretty bad until i got it up 2".

The tire u want is all gonna depend on what kind of driving/wheeling you do, mostly rocks would call for the goodyears, mud is gonna call for the BFG MT's, if u dont do too much wheelin than the BFG AT's are prob a good choice. As stated above check out the Kumhos and the Dunlops as a cheaper alternative to the BFG MT's or any other offroad tire for that matter

Hey..

I know everyone wants you to check out tires you dont have listed but....

I'd check out Firestone Destination M/T's. They look almost identical to Bridgestone Duelers, but have longer treadlife and better traction in all conditions.

But.. out of the ones on your list I'd go with the Duelers cause they are a good tire all around and look beefy, but if you dont do a much wheeling at all I'd go witht the BFG AT's... I had them b4 and they were kick A$$ too.

I'll second the Dunlop MudRovers. Make sure to shop around if you go with BFG. SAMs Club here in TX sells them pretty cheap, so if you know somebody that has a membership.......

Kuhmo is also a great tire that does not get the respect it deserves. Tire rack has them listed, and if I remember correctly they out score the BFG's.

Trxus 33-12.5-15, they work extremely well in the AZ rocks, have tuff sidewalls, and handle well on the street.

Not on your list, but if you are on a budget check into some retreads. I've been running 31" OTR muds on BFG casings and they are great. At $50 a tire you can't go wrong. I've only heard good things about them. They have pulled me through some pretty thick stuff and are wearing extremely well.

RETREADS

1995 Red Sport 4-door 4x4
5-speed manual ax-15
d30 front, chry 8.25 rear with stock 3.07 gears
Carpetless with new floors and Red Durabak interior.
31 x 10.5 retreads
Cragar soft 8's (15x8 w/3.75' backspacing)
RE6030 (full packs) with .75" coil spacers up front
JKS adjustable trackbar and discos,
Rancho 9000 shocks with in cab controls
Custom Skyjacker style t-case drop

Damn, you guys don't have my option, the all popular "Really crappy General Tire 215's that were on it when you bought it."

At some point I'll beef up in the rolling rubber department - if I lift this Jeep then 33's (MT/Rs or BFG A/T's), if I get the Scrambler I really want right now, then probably just a 30" on a 2"BB. But thanks for asking my opinion of the crappiest street tire EVER.
