Ive never had a set of either 3 tires but i have friends who have and the federals were good tires. they gripped well and did great off road. but they did wear fasted than i expected and They also road a tad rough(for a mud tire) but that may have been the truck they were on. Bighorns are pretty decent offroad but were loud as hell and rough on the road. my best friend got a truck that had them on it. the tires barely had any tread on them and were easily still louder than my brand new mud tires. but i would recommend wild country radial mtx. I had them on my old zj and was very pleased with them. they did great off road and handled great on pavement. they were a little loud but not obnoxiously loud and after driving probably 50 miles on average a day with them for almost a year(maybe 20k, not sure) they still had half tread if not more. and in my opinion they were tough(i've blown out at least one tire from all the brands ive had except for the MTX's). i also got 4 of them brand new (32's) for 590 balanced and mounted.

Eldorado MTZ's. I know two guys with those that we sourced through Friend Tire (deals to shops only). Great tires but loud (who cares). That or Nexen Mud Terrains (maybe discount tire). Just a BFG mt km knock off and tread is kinda hard but they seemed to wear pretty good (even) on the ford I saw with them on it.
