Tires

I am going to get some 235/85/16 tires. I just want to know which you guys prefer BFG A/T's or Micket Thompson Baja ATZ Traditional. The price difference in only like $20 a tire. Let me know what you would recommend.

do you have a lift? I want to get the same size tire but I am worried about rubbing issues,especially during flex. I have the 2.5" lift. I think the baja's will have longer tread wear

Get the BFGs or the Bridgestone Revos.

My buddy has the Revos and loves them. My cousin has the BFG's and loves them. So I know people who have them both. And I read about the Mickey's on tirerack. The store I want to buy from doesn't sell bridgestone though.

Yep,

it's called the lifted pics thread. You'd be amazed that we actually fill ou the profile under our usernames so that newer non-members can find out what sizes of tires are pictured.

my friend hated his bfg at's. loud for an at, and sucked in the rain. they also got clogged with mud and dirt too. no experience with the revo's, but i only hear good things.

go with a 265/75/16 for a 4" lift.

235's are almost stock

go to sears or whatever is your local tire center and ask what they can order. normally if you order through them they will cover the shipping. the last time i bought new tires i did alot of research looking at many websites but the shipping always made it more expensive. most tire centers will order many other tires then what they stock on the walls. sears ordered my old kumho's for me.

MTs

If your buyin new get the MTs and forget the ATs unless you like stuck -look at the Brig`s Wrangler MTs or Firestone Destination MTs for cheaper or the Swampers or Hawgs for awesome but big bucks.
