    Thanks for the the post with all the tires, I was more looking for peoples individual opinions towards the tires they use, but that's a good place to start.

    If you state your usage (highway, gravel roads, off road) and driving conditions (snow, rain, sand, mud, etc) then people would be able to provide much better advice. Intermediate tread tires is way too vague for people to comment on.

    I like using tires.

    Makes the ride smoother.

    Better mileage.

    Intermediate tire, like i said, a BFG rugged trial is a good example, I drive in gravel mud snow rain asphalt concrete. Im looking for a tire that will last 30000 miles not howl like a banshee, cleans out well, isnt a piece of crap in the rain. And wont cost me my first born child. Better?

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc

    pick one, howls and cleans well, or doesnt howl and doesnt clean.

    dont be lazy. go read shit. if you seriously write "but im too lazy to look for myself" in a post, no one is going to take you seriously.

    but on a serious note, super swampers seem like they fit your application

    A little better. It sounds like you want an All Terrain tire and pretty much all of them will last 30k miles, that's not a big feat for tires these days. Check out Cooper AT3's, Hankook Dynapro ATM, Yokohama Geolander A/T or Toyo Open Country All-Terrains. If you want a higher mileage tire, Michelin makes an A/T tire that's nice and quiet but a bit pricey. There are better options than the Rugged Trails in my opinion depending on what type of surface you primarily drive in. I'll see all of the surfaces you described throughout the year but I wouldn't buy a mud tire for the 2x a year I might go through something slick and greasy.

    I had some 33x12.5'' Cooper STT's on both of my last 2 jeeps and they where just as quiet as a BFG AT in my opinion. I could run 80-85mph with a soft top and you never noticed them at all while driving and where amazing off road. I've had the old style BFG mud terrains before and they where crazy loud. To me the Cooper STT is like a hybrid of a mud terrain and an all terrain. I'd either go STT or BFG AT for something your gonna daily drive. They both have good road maners.

    edit: would like to note I've never drove in snow. I live in the south so thats just mud, rain, sand, and pavement.

    i would recommend the duratracs. they are a good aggressive all-terrain tire. seems like something u are looking for.
