whats your favorite icecream? you might as well ask that question cause it is the same with tires. everyone has their likes and dislikes for one reason or another. you will get one person to swear by BFG while another will cuss them. i hate to say it but when it comes to tires, it all depends on your needs and driving habits, and everyones are different.

i have heard GREAT things about Xterrains, my friends dad has them, and he loves them. so like rusty said, its all about ur needs though. i love my Kumho Venture MT that i got in the 33x12.5 series for my 73'. i love them, and they only cost me 425.00 shipped to my house. www.tirerack.com check it out!

If u want one that will last forever get the bfg Mud terrain KM. On a jeep it should last about forever. My dad has 70k mi on his 33's on his F350 truck that pulls all the time and they are just about done. They look mean and play hard but that is just what i think.

I have the Pro Comp MT's on my CJ. I love em. They have great traction on mud, dirt, rocks, yes, I said rocks. Check my previous post on how my MT's pick up rocks. They are quiet on the road, and cost less than BFG's. I give em a thumbs up.

TSL Swampers... they're heavy, noisy, rough riding, flat spot in the mornings, don't last very long, and are expensive... but they kick *** on the trail and carry a cool factor of 10+

I've read that the BFG's last a little longer than the Pro Comps. The Pro Comps are siped which aids in the snow. They also accept studs for snow. The BFG's cost a little more and last a little longer. That's about it.

Just buy which ever brand makes you the happiest! It's just opinions.
