33's for a DD.

What's a good brand of tire to go with for a daily driver? The size is gonna be 33x12.50x15. I havent deciced if im gonna go 8" or 10" wide on the rim yet. I'd also like to hear pro's and con's on the rim width. Thanks guys!

How much and what type of off-roading do you typically do?

For a daily driver I would go with either BFG MT's or AT's. They are aggressive, yet wear well and have very low road noise. For the rim width I would do the 8" rim. The wider rim, the more hydroplaning in the rain.

I'll usually go off road on the weekends. So like 4 times a month. It will consist of trails and some mud. Nothing crazy, I cant afford to break sh*t on my dd.

Then as was said above BFG MTs or ATs are good. I have personal experience with the all terrains and loved them, I am getting Mud Terrains here pretty soon.

It's geared, so the gas mileage really isn't all that great.

I like the looks of the mt's better. I just wonder how they'll hold up compared to the at's? And yes, I get plenty of snow with these wisconsin winters so it's gotta be good in the snow!

I use 33x12.5x15 BFG A/T KO's on 15x8 rims on my DD. They work very well on and off road. They have almost 30k miles and still have plenty of tred left.
