Personally I love my BFGs, nice tread pattern and much quieter on the hwy than a lot of other brands.

I've got BFGs they're ok, but not great in wet weather, or mud. I'm going to Good Year Duratracs 265/75R16 discounttiredirect.com or tirerack.com

x2 for duratracks, I had them out today in some very, very soft sugar sand. They pulled right through without any problems. I have only had them about a week but I am impressed with their road manners, and the sand today.

If you're going the AT route, you can't go wrong with the Duratracs. Awesome tire for an AT.

All Jeeps should roll on a load C tire for the best ride. A D tire is ok, and E is pretty hard on the back and shoulders.

My JK is a pig weighing around 4500 and it's ride is nice on C range tires.

AT's will do fine in the trails. Trust me I've ran my almost bare (I dont even know the brand) AT's at the badlands and have never got stuck. Just dont go in any crazy mud holes.. They would great on rocks, sand, dirt and light mud.

Go to you your local tire store. Not Tires Plus or some chain store. Buy what he recommends for your Jeep. You will make a friend who will help in a pinch and you will be helping your local economy.

A lot of times you can get a great deal, if you do your research before hand from a chain store. You're right about the good advice locally, but all businesses provide local jobs and most are owned by local people as franchises.
