As for the the A/T KO, there are a really good choice for a daily driver. They are quiet, have decent traction and are long lasting on the street. Crappy sidewalls though.




These procomp? Crap.

MAN! I like the way your rig looks. The stance is awesome. Started my SYE tonight. Gonna run a flat belly skid. waggy leafs SUA. Got my spooled 9" for the rear with 4.88s. Going to be on 35" MTR/Ks. I cannot WAIT to wheel it after I work my magic.

Love my 31x10.5 Silent Armors. It's really a great A/T tire, one that does really well in all situations (unlike some A/Ts that do equally poorly in all situations).

At the moment, I run Falken HTS. The set with shiny new rims and 70%ish tread cost me $100 and my old rims with treadless tires. Before college, I either was the general grabber red letters or the general grabber AT2

33x12.50x15 Dunlop Mud Rovers.


They've been pretty good to me, they aren't the end all be all in the rain though. Then again I'm not sure how they stack up against other MTs in the rain since this is the only MT I've ever run on any vehicle I've ever owned.

I'd recommend them though, they're a lot cheaper than some other MTs out there too surprisingly.

I know it's been said before, but I'd like to reiterate one point for those who didn't read everything (cuz it takes too long:
The perfect tire comes down to what you drive on the most, and your price range. Those of us on snow and ice are gonna suggest an AT. Dry/wet territory, like mud, dirt and rocks will suggest an MT.
AT's are not very good for the mud, MT's are not very good on ice. Once you've got that choice made, decide how much you wanna spend. Cheaper tire, shorter tread life, etc. But that too comes down to YOUR driving characteristics. Throttle junkies go through tires.

I've owned many different tires/brands/types/patterns over the years
Mostly due to that fact that I have a small fleet of vehicles for our family of 6
Before marriage, kids and my present fleet, I have been through many different vehicles and tires since I got my license at 15
I'm not going to even try to list every vehicle I've had, put tires on & wore out - it would take up too much space here

To sum my opinion, BFG and GoodYear tires SUCK

I have yet to have a set of GY automotive tires last 1 good year
But because of this, I have never used thier truck tires
I never saw the reason to spend soo much money on thier truck tires when thier car tires suck soo bad

BFG tires are great when thier new
Before 3/4 life they turn to lumpy pieces of junk
For the same reasons as above, I have never used thier AT's that everyone raves so much about

The first set of tires I bought for my Jeep were some General AT2s, 30x9.5x15
They were a good riding tire but I didn't have them on long
Sold them to a kid for his Ranger
Probably put 20k miles on them

Next I bought a set of 33x12.5x15 Kumoh MTs for my Jeep
Again, they rode good when they were new
At 1/2 life they were loud and I couldn't seem to get the tire pressure right for even tire wear much less keep them balanced

I changed an old set of ProComp MTs in a 32x11.5x15
Offroad they took me anywhere I wanted to go without fail
Onroad they were LOUD but seem to ride ok
I have retired them to off road use only since the tire shop won't touch them due to thier age

With both of the above MT tires, I was scared to drive in the rain
No traction on wet roads

Today I am running Mickey Thompson Baha ATZ radials in a 305/65-17 on a 9" wide rim
I've gotten multiple compliments on the look - many have thought they were MTs
They're quiet on the street, have good grip, balanced out good on the first rotation, and excellent wet traction
These are the first Mickey Thompson truck tires I have dealt with so my final decision on them is still forthcoming but so far these things are fabulous

My oldest son took my Jeep down to the creek not to long ago - it was quite muddy after the rain
He forgot I didn't have my front driveshaft in but said he had no problems whatsoever driving around the other trucks that were stuck there
