I have a set of Continental Sportiva Ats and they are just as good as the old bfg ats i had their the same size and i have the same traction as I did the the bfgs. Plus I got the continentals at tires plus for 500 bucks mounted and balanced.
my friend has the procomp all-terrains and they seem to do pretty well...just another option if ur looking to buy all-terrains

Anybody have any experience/opinions with these tires. I am in the market for a new set of tires. The Mickey Thompson tires I have now have a tread separation issue that I have had on 2 different sets of MT tires.... The TrXus STS Radial appears to be a good all terrain tire, but I would love some first hand insight from someone that has a set.

The new Procomp AT tread is only in large wheel sizes like maybe 18" and above. As far as Mickey T, the MTX is more their AT tire but it has a real open tread between the individual blockes and I expect it to where quickly. Then, the new Dick Cepek FCII has a nice tread, real open on the sides and like the old Armstrong Norseman in the center. Will probably wear OK but its expensive, will be louder than a BFG AT for example but will be better in the mud.
I just put a set of Firestone Destination tires on my 05 Rubicon for the summer. I got a free set of 15" rims off of a new jeep and put the Destiation AT Floatation series. The tire is too quiet but unfortunately I got the 29.5 tall tire and I wished I would have gotten the next size up. I hope my milage will go up as well.

Anyone have experience with the TrXus STS radial? I was looking into a set. They seem reasonable, but I spend most of my time on the highway. I still would like a tire that performs when I do offroad. Any suggestions?
I did buy a set of Goodyear MT/R but got them changed as i use my Jeep for Sand and the MT/R are good but were very heavy and keep digging alot.
They couldn't be any heavier if they were made out of lead.

I love the offroad and onroad traction and look of the BFG A/T, but they are not that durable. I tore two sidewalls 5 minutes apart during one trail ride, it was brutal. i am looking for a tire with the same snow traction of the BFG A/T, but with a tougher sidewall. my LJ is my daily driver, so i want good road handling as well, that's why i would prefer to stick with an all terrain tire...
