Tire Decision......hmmmmm

OK
Decided on a lift:
Billy 5100's & AAL

NOW Can't decide on a tire.

I'm going 265/75R16 on Mickey Thompson Classic Locks

This should be around 32" depending on tire. So which tire would you guys pick? I like aggressive tread.....used to have BFG MT but I hate the new tread design & the old one has been phased out.

Look forward to the results of this one.

i picked the terra grapplers..........a good a/t tire, but not as heavy as the bfg's........and it'll wear better than a mud terrain/wont be as heavy so your mileage wont suffer........good for all kinds of driving scenarios.

I've always run BFG muds, but I'm with you on not liking the new version. Regardless, I only have experience with BFGs and I have nothing bad to say about them: Ive dragged the sidewalls all over sharp stuff and thousands of desert miles with nothing more than the occasional nail in the tread. Great tires. Go with the BFG All terrains unless you need a mud tire. I know lots of dudes that wheel with the A/Ts and they are bullet proof from what I've seen, you can always trust them. decent mileagea and good road manners too.

I'm sure the others are good tires too, but I never see them on the trail so I cant attest to their greatness.

Oh, I am currently running the stock rugged trails (they won't die!) but the tread on them is super weak/they suck... haven't popped one yet though...

Personally I like the terra grapplers. I've also had bfg's and no complaints there. I think you will probably wish you'd gone with 285's, i did!

I am planing on getting Firestone Destination AT's in a few months. A couple of guys/gals on here are running them and they get good reviews on the web as well.

I like my Toyo A/T over B/F A/T. I hear the Toyo M/T are a real good tire if you want a meaner look.

I am looking at either the Micky T MTZ's or Cooper STT's, or the Super Swamper Traxus even though I have heard bad things about them I think I might give them a chance. Here is where I do my tire comparisons http://offroaders.com/ , they have reviews for mud tire a/t's and ATV tires.

For all terrains I agree. Dads had the BFG AT and The Bridgestones on his tundra and he said he'll never put the bfg's back on to replace the bridgestones. Of course, thats just his opinion and the tire fits the driving habits and enviroments he has.
