Looking for some suggestions as to what kind of tires would be good to get for my Explorer. I want something that is good for off road but will still stand up to highway driving because its my daily driver too. It's just stock for the time being but I want to go up to a 31" to give me a bit more height. Any suggestions?

The sx is supposed to be good but i would think the baby in the center would cause a little hop at highway speeds.

I'm with B on this one. The Trxus MTs work really well in a variety of conditions and carry an excellent price point. I just put a set on my XJ and I like them better than my previous Yokohama MT+II that I was running. Considering they are a lot less expensive than the Yokos and seem to deliver similar traction, they make for a pretty good deal.

I spend far to much time with tires [16] like 70hrs a week to much

im personally not a fan,, but BFG A/T's seem to be a pretty good all around tire for a primarly on rd veichle but can still work well off road. a lot of guys sipe em. 5/32'nds for winter and by the time summer rolls around the siping is half worn and you don;t have to worry about the tires chuking on rocks,

as far a no name tires go,, they balance up way shittier than a quailty tire,, and in a 31 you can get a good ride still,,, but a shitty tire will give you unwanted shakes.

it's hard to get a tire to do it all,, but the bfg a/t or nitto terra grappler would not be a bad choice,, and luckley 31 are still pretty cheap

also the tire B. suggested is good,, but will suck in winter on the road.. other than that it's a good choice as well.

open shoulder, large lugs to start with.. they track like shit in corners and tend to get the plow affect, not much siping. maybe they are ok for costal winters but we do get some good peroids of snow on the roads up here.. but what the fuck do i know... I don;t sell tires on the FIBC forums nor do i have a pic of me leaning on a tire.

on second though, who the fuck am i to say... buy what B says he is the GURU

Didn't mean to cause any drama here guys!;) Anyway, do you work in a tire shop here in Westbank? I may come talk to you about it, cuz I need some advice from someone locally who doesn't know my husband:D Like I said don't need any more drama!

sorry had a few beer's didn't mean to come across that strong i guess ... [wako] have u seen a set in person or driven on them ?


i realize ur winter's are different than ours down here but still i put these on the wifes for the winter and they have really impressed ...

ask jakeranger about there sipping and amazing traction on the white and slippery stuff ...


but if u haven't seen /driven and it's not a brand u carry or have a good price point i get it .......


but for 150 bucks a tire in a 31 x 10.5 x 15 there hard to beat .

take a look at the pic above there's hella sipping ;)

I like the truxus .... I dislike driving in snow... alot... I like the truxus because I can actually stop when I need to instead of sliding all over the place... I have had several sets/kinds of tires and by far these are my favs...

but what do I know...Im no guru - Im "just" a girl....

Swamper Boggers are always my first pick but not everyone likes the tire howl like I do. My next pick is the Big O XT very nice aggressive tread but ok on hwy too. Awesome warranty. Here in Chilliwack Big O tires 604-792-8686. I have had the old tread design Big O mud terrains on my Jimmy for 4 years. Daily driven, mudded on weekends and mud raced as much as possible. Still about 50% tread.
