I would suggest either the BFG mud or the Goodyear mtr's. especially if its a daily driver. Toyo also has some really cool tires these days as well.

unless you got tons of horspower with drivetrain to back it up any tire fills up man. i personally dont like putting up with bias plye tires.

Last year when I had a 4X4 I ran 35 BFG Mud TA's. I think they are the best all around tire.The stave mud never stopped me till I diff out. For the rare ocasion that Boggers would have helped, by the middle of the season they would probably have been bald and useless with the miles I put on.

you also don't have to put up with the noise. it feels like a sesna is always chasing you.

swamper trxus mt's are the best daily driver/agressive mud tire you can buy. price is good too

in my opinion ... i'm on mys second set. i run them when i get sick of the shake and noise of my boggers

Boggers will wear quickly but the swampers are a lot harder and wear fairly well on the jeeps as they are light. You could also look into the radial swamper or the ssr radial swamper as they are still more agressive than the BFG and they are radials so they should roll well and wear pretty well or even the Trxus MT from interco (Swamper) TJ Rob runs those and likes em they are about the same look as the BFG but with a lot of siping and stuff which makes em a better off road and snow tire.

hey bumblebee just remember interco does not guarantee to sell you a round tire.

The radials are good its the bias tires that you have a crap shoot with but you have that with any bias tire.

cool web site thanx man [cheers]



ok kind of a stupid question but can some one explain bias ply vs radial does it have something to with steel belts ?

Nutbar
09-28-2006, 07:38 PM
radial and bias is the way they weave the belts in the tire not the material they are made of (the swamper TSL SX is a steel belted bias)

bias belts run horizontal ( acrosss) the tread and radial belts run with the tread...[cheers]

I'd concider the Procomp mud terains as well. They're also supposed to wear well.

i had some procrap muds on my 89 yota, they wore kinda shitty but they were awesome on the road and good for the off roading i was doing, have siping too which is nice
