huh?
I just ran my 35" KO2's in the snow for the first time and I was much more impressed with the DuraTracs I ran last year and will be re-installing soon.
I did have the DuraTracs studded though... so there's that.

X2 on the BFG all terrains. I have a set of 33x12.5 on mine and have yet to get stuck in the sand or snow. I don't think toyo makes a tire for a 15" rim unfortunately.

I've run Goodyear MTRs (old style), bfg ATs, swamper SSRs, swamper iroks nds, Firestone destination MTs, and nitto Terra grapplers.

Bfgs sucked off road, MTRs wore too fast. Firestone's were great, I've owned two sets. They are not siped though so wet roads aren't great. I don't have but about 300 miles on the nittos as they came on my 'new' truck

Thanks everyone for the replies! I thought I would update this thread since I got new tires and sold my swampers. I ended up going with the Mickey Thompson MTZ P3's. Unfortunately all I have done with them so far is run at the sand drag strip, and that was only on the front because I had my paddles on the back. I have already noticed they fall into ruts a lot more and tend to pull the front of the truck around on the strip, but it wasn't too bad. I will have to get used to the look of the skinny tires compared to my 16 wide boggers I had, but the weight loss was noticeable! Come April I will be doing the Schuss Mountain Snow Challenge again and that will be the ultimate test for these tires in deeper snow. Main reason I went with these is because they are supposed to perform well in sand, and I got them for under $800 out the door with rebates and whatnot. Next year I will really be putting the tires to the test, and I hope they perform!

I picked these dirt commanders up on ebay and they've been good so far and a very fair price. 265/75r16 10ply.
These are on my GMC K25

It also doesn't hurt that there is a $100 rebate on a set of 4 of them right now, bringing them to $768.96 to my door... not bad
Wonder if these will fit 15x14 wheels

12.5 should be on an 8 or 10 inch wheel at most. A 14 inch wide wheel is huge and you'll bulge the tire out and pop it off the bead all the time if you wheel it.

I really wanted Iroks, but the 36's measure 37", and they would definitely rub at full stuff.
