Tire Reviews

Looking to for some 35s and would like to get some feedback. What you like or dislike about what you are running. Uneven wear, tread life, wet traction, snow, mud, rock, sand, ride quality, etc...?

Looked at so far:
Nitto Trail Grappler
BFG Mud Terrain
Toyo Open Country M/T
Goodyear MT/R
Nitto Mud Grappler

Thanks in advance!

Four wheeler magazine did some good reviews not too long ago. Check out their website. All you will get here is a great review of whatever someone is currently running.

x2... I'm a duratracs fan. Guess what I have ! haha.

I've seen a lot of terra graplers and km2s recently though. Their owners always recommend them

I love my cooper discoverer stt. They get great tread life. They are good on the road with low road noise. They also do really well in the mud also

^^I've always referred to this site for opinions on tires. I had 33" Dick Cepek Mud Country's before and they were great in all conditions, on road manners were good, and in the mud they would dig to China, all the while moving me forward. So far I've liked the 32" stock KM2's that I have, even in the snow they've been great. I'm considering moving up to the 35" KM2 once I do my lift.

I believe the Mickey MTZ and maybe one of the Pro-Comp MT's share a carcass with the Cooper STT, might want to check out those as well.

Since you mention snow, hybrid-type tires like the Duratrac and ST Maxx also come to mind, not sure about size availability.

I have the Nitto Trail Grapplers. 315's as the 35's wouldn't fit on the stock wheel.

The do fine on the street. Not a lot of noise. I have them at 30 psi after several chalk test. I air down to 18 for off road. Mainly trails with some rock crawling...nothing overly aggressive...yet.

Not ideal on wet roads but for an MT tire I think they do fine. Stopping is fine but I feel some give making sharp turns.

They are heavy though and the spare takes effort to get off the carrier.

Mud graps are supposed to have better wet traction than trail grap

Wouldn't fit on stock wheel? Tire shop tell you the rims weren't wide enough? Thanks for the feedback.

Yes. Discount Tire. Had something to do with how the tire mounts on the rim.

If you look at the specs the 315 is actually wider tire overall.

I might run into this as well with Discount Tire however there are a lot rigs with 35s and 37s on stock wheels.

Mickey Thompson BAJA MTZ!
Great road manners, BOMBPROOF sidewall, Great Flex, hooks up on everything!

OR

If you prefer an overrated tire known for a weak side wall...there's always Duratrac.

On the highway they seem to be fairly quite for a mud tire, but I have a 2013 JKU hardtop running 3.73 gears. They do good in soft snow but I don't know of any mud tire that does great on hard packed or ice. I rotate them all (5 tire) every 5,000 at discount tire. The guy checked for wear at 10,000 and said it looks like I should get about 50K out of them. I highly recommend these tires but I am sure others would recommend what they are running.

My favorite is the Pitbull Rocker. This is my third winter on this tire (55,000klm) and they still impress me in the snow and winter roads.

Getting tire advice from a forum like this is useless. Somebody likes every tire. Every tire is amazingly awesome from their perspective. It helps to validate their purchase.

If you want any real feedback, ask only for negative opinions. Looks to magazine, websites, etc. that are more unbiased.

That sounds familiar. Perhaps because I said it in the very first reply?

I have 35x12.50x15 Pro Comp MT2s . They work great everywhere ! Excellent on rocks! But ,the big BUT, They are very loud and are wearing out FAST!!! Im an extremely maintenance freak. That being said I have rotated these tires every 3000 miles! I check and maintain the air pressure at 20psi (used the chalk test) regularly. I have little over 11k miles on them and are over halfway wore out! Have had Cooper STT on my old rig and loved them ! Cooper STT will be my next tire choice!!!

What part of Northern Arizona? I go to Flagstaff every summer. How is it with the 3.73s?. That's what I have for now.
