lawl, Thornturds. You must have never owned any tire before that then. If your going to get a Swamper, get a TSL.If you want something that wears good, go with a BFG, Goodyear, even a Pro Comp. What are your plans with them? Some might not agree with this but when it comes to mud terrains, as long as they have decently spaced lugs and you can air them down, they all work just as good as the other. The big difference is how they wear. This is my experience.

Was just looking for that exact size tire for my girlfriends yj, ended up buying Goodyear mtrs w/Kevlar, paid 1275 with a 80 mail in rebate from tire rack, for five of them shipped to my door. All the reviews on them, people have said they love them, perform great off road, not to noisy, and last pretty long on the road.

current 99xj (5.5 on 36s)
past 98 xj (4.5 on 33s)sold 95 zj (stocker)sold

Got Mickey Thompson MTZ's going on this weekend. Highly recommended among my jeep club here including the winter.

MT/R Kevlars, and KM2s are some of the most popular mud terrains on jeepforum. Lots of good reviews of both. Cooper makes some nice tires that are generally a little cheaper, I can't remember what their mud terrain is called off the top of my head though.

I have dickcepek mountain cats on my Xj. They have a little hum on the hiway and at 10-12 psi they stick rocks like white on rice. My tire comes from the same plant as the Mickey Thompson Mtz. Tread is the same but the sidewall is different
