ok, i posted up on here before on what i should do with tire size, and i decided i want to run 35's for DD and off roading, so naturally that means a mud terrain. i'm leaning towards the bfg m/t, but i like the trxus m/t too, what do you guys think, what are you guys running and what do you like? thanks

What is the difference in price between the two? the tread pattern is close to being the same, so I would figure out which one wears and rides the best on the road, they should be pretty equal in the mud? , but thats just a guess

Im a huge fan of interco tires....The Iroks are great tires but wear quick...the Truxus M/T's wear good, and the Vortrac is great....I have run the Truxus STS in the sand before and there is no better sand tire other than a paddle

I started off with a set of thornbirds I got for free in 35x14.5, I never really got to use them offroad but I absolutly hated the onroad manners. I don't mind a vehicle thats rough around the edges with some handling "character" but those were pretty bad. However I did really like the width and the stance they gave the truck. Unfortunatly not many tire companies sell a 35" with a width over 12.50.

So I did a lot of research myself, here and other places and i found the toyo open country m/t. It comes in a 35x13.5..........I was NOT however going to buy this tirejust for the width and have a crappy tire so I read review after review after review. I could not really find a bad thing said about the tire other than the price. I found them pretty cheap online, got them mounted and bead balanced them myself. It has so far been a GREAT tire. The wear has been good, road manners are excellent, great look. I haven't done a lot of offroad because my gear swap is not done in the front but I did take them on a trail in the mountians last may. With just a detroit and RWD they didn't hestitate on steep hills and (toaster oven sized) rocks. I've been really happy so far, I think its an underrated overlooked option. Just thought I'd throw it out there.

The Pitbull tires are bias ply so the road manners and wear will not be as good as the BFG. Some people really like Pitbull and some people really don't. OF course the people who seem to hate them the most are people who have never ran them. Pitbulls have a very ridgid sidewall and take a lot of use to get them to flex off road. They are however a rugged tire that can take a lot of abuse.

There was talk of a Growler radial, but I do not think it has come out yet.

They do however have some cute models who I would be happy to let rotate my tires.

Toyo makes a very good tire. I think the M/Ts are made in Georgia if I am not mistaken.

How fast do you drive? On the interstatenot many. Higher speed = more heat = less wear. I think you would be lucky to get 20K miles if you did a lot of 70+ mph driving

If you stick to 55 hwys and around town you will get 20-30K miles. I almost bought a set of Rockers that had 20K on them and still looked pretty good (+50% tread), but he had them on a light weight jeep. Heavier rig will wear faster. He said they were too loud to cruise around town in with the top off. He is a mall cruiser and was prpbably scared to drive his old jeep faster than 45 mph.

Kumho KL71 Mud terrains are awsome
Ive had them on my truck for about 3 years now

www.kumhousa.com

they are very aggressive, clean out well, ride nice, on and off road,
mine have about 25,000 miles on them and have 90% tread left

i would be tossed between these and tsl radials (these are alot cheaper)
and last longer
