Best Off-Road and On-Road Tire!

I am looking for a bada** tire for my Jeep. I want to run 35x12.5xR15 or R16. Which one would be better for me to get? I drive like 80% Highway (around town really) and 20% Offroad. I like these 6 tires cause they are different and there is Very Few around Jackson. Plus where can I buy these tires online and get a great deal? Shops around Jackson, Ms will rip you off.

There is 6 for me to choose from the following:

Maxxis Bias Creepy Crawler

Maxxis Radial Trepador

Super Swamper Boggers

Nitto Mud Grappler

Toyo Open Country M/T

BFG Krawler


Thanks
Anthony

Dang, what about the TrXus MT its a great tire not sure if it comes in the size you want but I have no experience with any of those tires, I can say no to the boggers though those would probably be the worst

Is this a serious question? At least 80% highway miles on those tires? Of your choices, the Toyo Open Country would be the best for on-road useage and be more friendly as far as mileage goes. I wouldn't run a bias tire on a DD rig-street use, as there's really no reason when the radials are so much nicer. Off-road, yes, but not on the street. At the expense-regardless of how "good a deal" you get on those tires, I'd want them to last as long as possible, and wouldn't want to subject them to highway abuse. If you have the money and prefer looks over function, then my vote goes to the boggers-they are a mean tire, and do very well off-road. In reality though, of the choices you picked, the Toyo's would do pretty well. I know a few guys running them who have had very good luck with them so far and are pretty impressed. Mileage has held up very well and they seem to do pretty good off-road too.

Anyway, Best of Luck,

Mike

might I suggest.........forget the Bogger if it's a DD......... Also might want to think about availability. It's cool to be unique and all but how much will that suck when you have to order a tire over the internet to replace those(I'd assume you'd get a spare). Do any snow driving? Good luck with an MT....it'll work but.......... I know its "plain" but I run BFG's and they are great for highway driving. ( I at first had the same idea of a bada** tire but threw it out the window for practical reasons)

I had a set of 305/70r16 (34") pro-comp xterrains on my old truck for about 8 months, and they almost still looked new, i had more than half a penny left..(maybe around 7,000 miles) and they were an aggressive looking tire...

Out of theose choices the only tire on that list that I would think would make it an entire year is the Toyos or the Trepadors.

Maxxis new trepadors are suppost to be a hot tire and have heard a few good things on them form some guys i know at Maxxis. I am unsure of the mileage but they said they wanted a great all round tire that performs well offroad and wont kill you on road.

The Toyo Although I had balance issues on the ones I purchased and had were the QUIETEST offroad tire on a vehicle. They were amasingly quiet. They also had very good mileage. I had 15k on a set and you oculd hadly tell. This was making numerous trips pulling my HUGE boat and pulling a car hauler form vegas to phoneix with two cars on it twice.

My chouce if you got money to spend? BFG Krawlers... thats what will be going on my rig for off road duties.

They were hating on them compared to BIAS tires. For a radial tire that you drive on everyday, they are a GREAT tire because they have aggressive grip and have good road manners.

Of the tires you have shown...for 80% highway and 20% off.....Id suggest the Toyo's...forget the Boggers.... and really a bias tire is pretty rough riding on road...the Krawlers wont give you the best miles....Ive heard nothing but good about the Toyo on and off road...they ride quiet, have strong sidewalls...thats the way to go IMO.
