Hey yall, recently I have been looking for a nice set of 31x10.5x15 mall terrains. I have looked at quite a few tires. I like the GY duratracs a lot but they are a lil expensive. I was just wondering what yall might suggest for a nice all terrain. I will not get a set of BFGs though. I drive on a lot of dirt and gravel roads. probably in the 50/50 of on road and dirt/gravel driving. I would like yalls opinions on what you guys have used or would suggest. Thanks in advance.

been looking at tires for my 96 as well in the 31x10.5x15 range. But I cant stand to be driving a big beefy Bronco with tires on it that just look a little too small for that all around chunky look. So just today I went to my buddies auto shop and got a nice price for the General AT2 Grabbers 33x12.50x15. They have a nice square tread like the bfgs but they have a lighter price tag and are rated at 60,000. I have a friend who swears by these tires as he ran them on his old skool bronc for years. They do have a 31x10.5x15 available so you may want to check into them. Good luck with your decision.
TJM.

I want a more aggressive look though. I dont know what it is about that tread pattern but I hate the bfg at and the general ones

I suggest looking into the M/T ATZ's

the st/cs are still in my thoughts but the atzs are too expensive. and the only atzs that come in a 31x10.5 are the atz+s which I also dont like

Try the Cooper STT... they look and perform off road like an agressive mud tire but ride like a mall terrain. They are a great all around tire.

yea those are in the running also. I like those the cooper st, the mastercraft ct, those duratracs I mentioned in the first post, and quite a few more but some of those are real expensive. I have found these

and I still like those STTs they are just sweet looking tires

I dont know for sure if those pics will come up or not. If not most are just direct links to sites. I have found most of these around the $130-140 range but I need to check with my local dealer and see what he is charging for some of these

yea I could see they work well in most conditions that you put them through when I was looking at last months FSM. You got a beaut of a bronco. How did they do with snow and ice on the road? and do they throw a lot of rocks when on gravel? Thats my main concern is the winter and gravel. Most tires can perform just fine with rain and dry conditions

They are excellent on icy and snow covered roads, snow covered and icy roads was actually the reason I purchased and built the Br0-J and chose these tires (mud and sand also) but I haven't really had them in gravel so I can't help you there... Thanks for the compliment.

The TOYO A/T look awesome but SUCK in wet or snow weather. Had a set of 325/60/18 on my cummins ram and loved it for the looks but not performance. I'd look into Kumho KL78's. I'm on my 2nd set. First on a '02 F250 plow truck and now on my '95 Bronco DD. LOVE them.
