I ran pro comp mud terrains in a 35x12.50 and I loved them... I picked them up used with about 70% tread and even wear.. They werent the best rain/ice tire but what mud terrain is? The were very smooth and quiet, more like an A/T with the aggresive look of a M/T..

For New england wheeling get the Truxus MT's great on just about any surface, and really good in snow.

I'm running 32 inch duratracs and must say I love them. They are an excellent hybrid mud/all terrain. They have excellent traction in the mud and on the rocks however I haven't been able to try them in the snow yet but I can't wait. They are wearing great, I have 5000 on them and they show no signs of noticible treadwear.

i would recommend the km2's for all year use, great performance on/off road/and good road manners. i went with 33x10.5s for many reasons. 1-i had a 4 banger on 4.10s and wanted a bigger tire than my 31's but less weight to push since its a smaller engine, 2-trail wise, if you ride on anything but sand, deep mud, and heavy snow, you're gonna get the most traction out of a more narrow tire bc more cubic pressure being put on the contact surface, 3-combine reason 2 with traveling on roads, with snow, that narrow tire will cut through the snow on the roads better than a 12.5" wide tire. 4-great wear and much quieter than my 31's and ofcourse my 36's too! but in all honesty, i put them on my rig last fall and sold my 225 studs, i couldn't have been more pleased with my decision. in 2wd, those tires were good, in 4wd, those tires were awesome, on storms i'd try to lose control and found it very difficult if at all. under 40 mph, i was fully confident in my jeeps capability and my own safety while driving in the storms. i sold that jeep to my father and have bought a subie outback this fall for the upcoming winter and better fuel economy. i'm keeping the jeep i own for fun only! off the top of my head, i can think of at least 10 members in our club that run them year round on their rides and love them.

ive had mine for a year now and they are amazing in all categories. of course there are better tires for different circumstances, but overall i would choose these over and over again.

I have 31" Parnelli Jone Dirt Grip All-Terrain Tires I really like them. They ride good, not loud and seen to wear good. Plus not every one has then like a bfgoodrich.

For NE snow and ice, DuraTracs seem to be the way to go. 33x10.50... Wider than that and you lose grip in wet conditions.

I've had 4 sets of ProComps (2 MT and 2 Xterrain, all 35s) and they were great except for life. I really like the Xterrains. But all of them wore out fast. 30-35k miles is too short for my budget.

My next new tires will be Duratracs. I just like the way they look.

I just got a set of the General Tire AT2's. Only 31x10.5 though. First real snow is coming down right now, and i can not say enough how good these tires are working. They do really well in the snow. I havent been able to really get crazy out in the woods with them yet as ive only had them a few days. But i would recommend them.

I've never heard of them. Of course, I'm curious, so I googled them. Those are some nice looking tires!

They seem to get pretty good reviews here, and here.
