I am putting on a 3" lift and want to upgrade the tires and rims as well. Already have the rims picked out, but don't know where to go with the tires. Want a nice A/T that won't hum, a little is ok, while driving. Also don't want to spend rediculous amounts. I was thinking pro comps because they have the best reviews out there. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

Used to run BFG ATs and was very happy with them. Quiet on the road. Good in snow. Tread lasted a long time. I thought better off road than people give them credit for.
X2, ran them on my Cherokee and my Tacoma and thought they were great. Just recently decide to try out the Treadwright retread all terains though. I got them with BFG side walls and the tread pattern is pretty much identical to the BFG all terain. I have only had them on for a liitle over 1,000 miles, mostly highway with a little snow and ice, but so far so good, and at $450 including shipping and tax for four 285/75/16 tires is hard to beat.

Don't go with pro comp all terrains they are not that great of tire. My friend had them on his super duty they were great on the road but pretty much sucked every else. IMO the best two AT tires out there are the Goodyear Duratrac, and the BFG AT the only down side to the BFG ATs is they are terrible in the mud or wet grass.

Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.

I have had a bunch of different ATs on trucks over the years. BFG AT KOs a lot. They ride OK on the road, are decent off road. But...they chunk like CRAZY in rocks. Then they suck after that.
I went through 2 sets of BFG ATs on my work truck in about 20K and less than a year. Put on a set of the Hankook AT/M, and night and day better. I have had them for about 8 months now, and on the same roads that tore up the BFGs, and they barely show any wear. They are quieter than the BFGs, ride better on the road too. And the Hankooks are cheaper by about $30 each.
Flexes like a boneless hooker on muscle relaxers.
I just picked up some 12.5 x 33 Firestone Destination AT's from Tire Rack. They get great ratings on their web site from people who both use them as DD's and some folks who get dirty. I've only got about 500 miles on mine so far but they are quiet, ride nice and have a fairly aggressive tread pattern. I'm expecting them to do well. Not as good as BFG Mud Terrain TA's I've run in the past, but this TJ will see mainly DD use with occasional trailing.
I've run the BFG AT's and agree they are not worth much in any sort of mud or on dirt/mud inclines. Not terrible on rock but that's not what I trailed on in Kentucky.
