What brand of 33x12.50

Long story short, I ordered new tire online at christmas and there still back ordered. So i'm looking to buy some again.

What brand and make of 33x12.50 tire are you running? My Bronco has Moog824's in the front which lifted it 2 1/2" so it's leveled out now. Don't want an A/T tire. Prefer the more aggressive look of the M/T's. I also have a set of (5) Raceline Rockcrusher 15X8 5x5.5 -32 I'm putting on it too.

Looking at the new Falken Wildpeak M/T01's, Dick Cepek Extreme Country's, Federal Couragia M/T's, and Mickey Thompson Deegan's.

But I'm open to other options?

Any feedback would be great!

After having nitto mud grapplers for the past few months I don't think i'll ever buy another brand of tire. Its amazing with the sheer amount of tread hanging off the sidewall of them, they hold 85-90 mph without so much as a shimmy with little to no weight. That being said they only sell them in a 33x13.50 so im not sure how well that would work with 15x8's, and alot of people dont care for the noise

I've got a friend with federal couragia's, for a cheap mud tire they look and ride pretty good. Never got them in the dirt but the tread pattern looks open enough to clean itself out and dig holes to china.

An extremely underappreciated mud tire. I've had two sets of them, one on a F350 psd, and one on a f250 460. They wear like iron, have great dry road manners and extremely good off road traction. They are not siped, so wet pavement driving isn't top notch, but very manageable. They are also pre drilled for studs. Got that f250 through a drained pond with 20" of soup in the bottom, up a 12k ft mountain where a certain Jeep was scared to go, and the 16 hour drive back to KS from CO.

When the nittos that came on my truck go bald, I'll be buying my third set.

I might add that I run swampers on my Bronco.

Been very happy with my Duratracs in 33/12.5/15
Got a studded set last year for the '90 and was driving through bumper deep snow on a poorly maintained dirt road without a problem in 2wd.
Handled the roads great too. My ol' lady liked 'em so much, she bought a summer set in 31's for her Yota.

I'll probably stick with 'em as long as they keep making them.



PS: This should have gone in the Wheel/Tire section.

I did notice, they seem a little louder running the highway on the second season of use vs. the first... but that could just be the studs or me, loosing my mind.

I loved my BFG All Terrains on my last bronco! I will be ordering another set of those for my new bronco once these tires wear out.

Anything made by Nitto should be good. I ran 40" mud grapplers on a prior build of mine (not a bronco) and still had really good tread after 30k miles when I sold it. the muds are the least highway friendly of their lineup (I think). only thing I did not like was the snow performance, but given the width of that tire, it was expected. im currently looking at the Ridge Grapplers for the Bronco (but they start at a 17" wheel and go up)

I know you said you don't want AT's, but B.F.Goodrich 33x12.R15's were on my 93 when I bought it. Going thru receipts that came with the truck, they now have 15,000mi on them. I really like them. They are QUIET and give a nice ride now that I've replaced the shocks. On a side note: I bought a new spare @ Discount Tire. They said they wanted $200.00 for the tire. I said, "don't make me go to Tirerack.com.". He said OK, "$185.00" You can haggle price! Probably stick with them also...

Firestone M/T's are out of my price range at $250 a tire!

They are a bit pricy, but so are Goodyear's, bfgs, nittos, Mickey Thompson's, swampers, etc.

I think you need to look at like big o or some other tire chain with "off brand" tires. I have a set of big o all terrains on my explorer sport and they are a great tire with plenty of deeper lugs for decent off-road traction. Granted they are 31" at most, they were under 150 each

I love them on my 79. I have a thread in the wheels/tires forum. Post #6: DC Extreme Country, MT ATZP3, or MT Deegan 38s?

I really liked the Destination MTs, and have never EVER liked BFGs I've had.

I know I said I wasn't interested in an AT tire, but the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W look like a good priced tire. They have great reviews too.

I just replaced my worn out Maxxis Bighorns with BFG KM2 mud terrains about a month ago. They ride much, much better than the worn out Maxxis tires. Quieter, smooth at normal and high speeds. Supposed to last a long, long time too.

The Maxxis had somewhere between 40 and 50K on them. They weren't completely gone, if I would have been coming out of winter instead of going in to it, I'd have kept them until next fall.

But, the BFGs were 250ish each. Don't remember how much the Maxxis were 6 or so years ago, but I think around 150 each.

Looks similar to the big o all terrain that I mentioned.

Another negative review of the bfg at for me. Hated the balloon look they had, and they sucked anywhere off road except dry hard pack dirt. Absolutely zero self cleaning ability. They did last a long time though, much to my dismay.

I hear a lot of folks really digging the BFG KO2 and before that the KO but I just got my '95 w/KO2's and I have to say, I was not as impressed as I'd hoped to be. I actually preferred the older BFG MT from before the KO models took over.

I was also a little bummed to learn that I couldn't get the Duratracs in a 35/12.5/15. Fortunately for me... the 33/12.5/15 is and w/only a 4" lift, I'll be happy with them.
They do look a little small w/the 6" lift that still on it though.



OK, I'm moving this one to the wheel/tire section where it belongs now.
