Wat Would you choose

Out of these three tires which would you choose

if it got the BFG MT that would be my permanant tire but they are expensive. The bfg AT is cheaper and a good tire but how are they off road and the trail busters ive never heard of them and they could be a good on road tire then i could swith to SS LTBs or somethin what do you think.....

BFG AT's are a great tire - run them on all my vehicles. They will outlast just about everything if properly taken care of. Offroad they are pretty damn good. But if you do a lot of wet stuff I might look into the M/T's

The MT's would be good for you, but you have to balance between on and off road. If you are going to be spending 90% of your time on road then AT's would be the number there.

I would stick with the bfg's, whether you choose M/T or A/T, they are both great tires, they wear well, and if you keep them rotated and balanced you will get good tread wear, 40 - 50 thousand on the M/T, and upward of 60,000 on the A/T is not unusual.

So are you absolutely stuck on the BFG line? Have you ever looked at the ProComp Xterrain or the Mickey Thompson Baja Claws.

Both are directional tires that will and do help in mud/sand etc....

Ah, gotcha. Yeup, you are narrowing it down pretty good. If you've said about your lift plans I haven't read them, but be careful in lifting your center of gravity too high and then keeping pizza cutters on the ground. The stability that a 12.50 tire brings on a lifted rig is worth it.

You might look at the Gateway Buckshot radial mudder. The 275/85R15 will measure out to about the same as a 33x10.50.

im gonna do a 3in suspension and a 1-2 in body. the only reason i dont like the 12.50 is the rubbing i think whats the pros and cons to having a 12.50 or 10.50

Unless you are gonna use the stock wheels you will have no rubbing issues with 12.50's. Even if you are using the stock wheels you can run a spacer then you eliminate your rubbing issues that way. I have a 2 in BB and a 1 in BL with 33 12.50's on stock canyons. I run 1.25 inch spacers and have no rubbing whatsoever!!

ive decided i think that im gonna go with 12.50 now it says i need an 8.5" -10" wide rim what would happen if i rode an 8" rim and what would be the benefits of a 10 rim. Also what is the proper backspace needed to make it either not rub or rub as much as my 10.50s on stock rims?

You'd be fine on an 8 or a 10" rim for what you are going to do. Just make sure you stay between 3.25" and 3.75" of backspacing to keep from rubbing the bigger tires on your control arms.

So if i run a 15x8 with 3 3/4 backspacing on 33x12.50 tires i would be fine. What do you think of spacers...

You'd be fine - no spacers
