give us more info, what are you looking for out of the tire? more offroad performance? better onroad ride? tire life?

IMHO, between a BFG and a Swamper, i'd go the Swamper route. I've had BFGs, and i couldn't imagine getting worse onroad wear than i have gotten with them. I've got maybe 20k on them and they are almost gone. Also, i think Swampers will give you a better offroad performance anyday. Check out the SSR if you are looking for a tire to last longer and ride better. TSL radials will throw mud better, but wear slightly faster on the road. Another to consider is the Goodyear MTR, this seems to be a popular tire lately, and is more aggressive than the BFG.

thanks for the info so far. I'm not worried about onroad performance or wear. I just want to know how a 33x10.50 looks on a jeep
and how well it fits. 33x10.50's will be my first set of tires because they will fit on my stock rims. I can afford the money for the lift and tires I just don't have the money for rims too. bigblueyj let me know when you get your url fixed.
thanks guys

thanks pantera on getting the photo to work! bigblueyj, did you get to test the tires? Did they rub or hit sheet metal when flexed?
