I'm just curious, since you've been doing the researching, what is the difference in price between a ProComp mud terrain, and a ProComp Extreme mud terrain? They are totally different tires, built in different factorys by different companies. I have the ProComp Extreme MTs, and they work very very well, everywhere I have had them. I have not heard good reports on the ProComp MT.

I've got the MT's and I hate them. Less than 3000 miles and 2 wheelin' trips, 2 of the tires are missing chunks of rubber. And if you live in the snow they are terrible on the ice. I run them at 37psi, at the reccomended 43psi, they ride so rough, my wife would not drive it.

For about $1000.00 for 5 tires, I think you would be happier with something else. I know I would have been.

No way - You shouldn't need to run them any higher than like 30psi. I'm surprised you haven't worn the centers out.

Im runnin the MTs now theyve got 30k miles on them and still better than half tread.. as far as wear goes Im satisfied. My tires also perform well off-road just be prepared to sling mud, topless is a bad choice lol. The road noise is noticeable but its fairly quiet low hum. Good tires I recommend them.

The prices seemed comparable to companies like BFG and Goodyear when I was looking. I would go with a reputable TIRE company and let Procomp stick to making wheels.

Give a look at the Cooper STT's.

Good tire and it's what I have.

Not to be offensive, but why are you running that much air pressure on a TJ?? For a vehicle of that weight, you should be down in the 28 to 30# range.
Want proof? Go to any reputable tire shop and ask them to do a chalk test on your tire tread to see if you have the proper pressure. It will give you the best indication of what pressure you really need.
Your wife will love you for it.

pro comp mud terrains

Because I don't know what kind of Jeeping you do, take this with a little gentleness.
I run Pro Comp ATs on my Rubicon. I run Moab, Ouray, and the Colorado high country all the time. The AT works as well as any tire I Jeep around, which covers just about every tire you can ask about.

The only place the AT is not as good is in deep mud. When they are new, they do well, not real well in mud.

On snow, ice, rocks of all kinds, slick rock, and the hwy, the PC AT will perform as well as nearly anything else you can run. You won't have the road noise the large lugged tires will have either.

If you run in mud, go with the big lugs.

I'm glad someone uses there head there bud. I laugh all the time at the people that come into my store with "mud" terrain tires on there trucks. Unless you are in MUD ALOT there just a waste of your money. People buy them for looks and a good AT tire will last longer and perform just as well 95 percent of normal wheeling. This is coming from someone who wheels in the Poconos and Pine Barrans. And for those that dont know what the Pine Barrans are, its a huge swamp with alot of MUD CLAY and WATER. I'm currently tire shopping and MT's are not even in my vocab. Unless most of your driving is offroad MT's just look cool and wear your wallet as fast as the treads. My buddys son only buy MT's cause they look cool on his useless lifted Chevy PU and goes through a set every 12000-15000 miles. THe only time that truck sees dirty is when he turns into his driveway. Nothing against everyone and there MT's but I think we all know there not needed most of the time.

I agree, with said above. I have Xterrain on mine and they are good for both off road and daily driving. I've had them for over 30K and still have plenty more miles left on them. There is some road noise and they have a beefy look to them.

Very true. When I replace my tires I'm getting an AT the Xterrain is my favorite if I can afford them. I dont need MT's I don't go mudding that often and there are no trails near my house but the MTs were on my Jeep when I bought it.
