I am getting some 32 inch tires to go with my teraflex 3t lift. What I want to know is which mud terrain tires are the best on the road because that is where most of my driving is. I go to my dad's every few weekends(400 mile round trip) and go about 55 all the way to school every day(about 20 miles away). As you can see, the jeep sees alot of higher speeds. I go offroad as much as possible and it rains alot around here so it sees quite a bit of muddy conditions. should i just ditch the idea of m/t's and get a/t's or should i stay with the m/t's? I need to know asap b/c the lift is going on this weekend. What are the difference between pro comp's m/t and bfg's m/t also? I want a good tire that will last for a while and also one that is the quietest (m/t) on the road. Please help and thanks in advance.

I have heard very good things about the Interco TrXus M/T. They are quiet on the road and very good off road. They also have siping so they excell in the rain and snow/ice. People say they are getting about 30,000 miles out of them too.
This is probably the tire that I will be going with

My friend has some 32x11.50 BFG muds, and they are some quiet tires. THey still have the big aggressive tred, they work great on and off road. I plan on getting a set of 33x12.50's as soon as i get my lift.
kumho mt's, cheap, quite, good in all terrains i have hit, not great in wet weather if u have a heavy foot and crappy shocks as they tend to slide a little over bumps. But for 80 bucks a peice who cares, just drive like an old man and ull be set
I've had the BFG and Bridgestone MTs. Both are really good on and offroad.

TrXus M/T's are great off road tires as far as a noise and performance compromise. However, they will wear out much faster the All Terrain tires. I drive 50 miles a day to work, and after7 months so far, I'll probably be looking for new tires by April or so.
If you want tires that will last you a decent amount of time, I would suggest ATs. You're likely to get 15-12k more miles off of them. But the performance off road is much better with the M/T's.....
Darn trade offs

alot of the replies are all good advice. to narrow it down ATs are great if you do most of your driving on road; they last longer and are quiter. most like the look of the MTs but depending on brand have the highway humm and wear out noticeably faster. the Dunlop MTs and the Kuhmo Venture MTs i'd put in the same category due to build and cost. although the Kuhmo's tread pattern looks similar to the BFG and Goodyear MTs, leaning towards those. for what your saying the ATs are the way to go, but the look of MTs are probably what you want. i was in this same situation and went with the MTs, don't regret it at all. of course MTs will wear out quicker. i have the ProComp MTs and they've lasted me about 35K miles. i'm going with the Kuhmos or Dunlops next or now as i'm buying tires in the next week or so. www.tirerack.com has lots of customer reviews on tires they carry. i suggest checking them out to help you decide. good luck.
BFG MTs, they have great tread wear and street manners, they are good off-road as well, especially in the east where mud is more of a factor. They have also performed real well for me on the rocks. I would def buy another set, except the next ones will be 35's.
