I have always thought pro comp tires are over priced. Also not sure how you can have an extreme all terrian tire.

RUN RUN FAR AWAY from pro-comp. They are a re-branded tire. Check out Firestone AT's (aggressive tread style) Kumho makes a outstanding AT too I believe the number is the 78. BFG have gone down hill (now your really just buying the name) Goodyear duratrac's are among the favorites. Can I ask why not a full on M/T? Really the new MT/R with kevlar from goodyear is about the best tre on the market right now. It does well in everything. Last your 60k or so in miles if you rotate them correctly.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Have Pro Comp Xterrains with over 12K miles on them with plenty left. Work well in the clay-mud we have around here.

The X-Terrains are a whole different animal than the Extreme ATs.

I was more refuting the bad opinions about Pro Comp than commenting on the AT's.

Ah, gotcha. Reviews of the X Terrains and Extreme mud terrains I've read haven't really been that bad. And IIRC the Extreme ATs have like a 40K warranty. Pro rated of course, but still..


Probably not a bad tire for mostly street use and light trail.

I have Pro Comp AT's and am really impressed by them. As said they aren't the best mud tire but to me that's great I HATE MUD! On the trail they throw loaf of bread size rocks and don't throw chunks of tire. They grab large rock and pull me over and are wide (Short for a 32x11.50x15 they fit my 2000 TJ without a lift) to take me through loose gravel where others have trouble. I see lots of very opinionated people whineing about things. It's why they sell Jeeps in different colors, to each his own. I like mine. And if they are Chinese rubber I guess they do better with rubber than they do with steel that they put in the Smittybuilt crap.

I have Pro-Comp XTerrain in 325/60/R18s, and although I am no Mud Expert, the tires look aggressive and ride ok. We'll see just how far they go the distance in wearability. But when they need to be replaced, I am down-sizing from the 325s to something more practical to offset the poor gas mileage I am currently seeing.

I looked at a lot of tires in 315/75/16 sizes and decided on the Xterrians for my 05 rubi. I didn't want Goodyears after the MTRs that came on the jeep were just about shot at 22,000 when I installed my RE LA lift kit, and damn noisy on the road. I just liked the look of the tread and the claim that they are quiet on the highway. After running a lot of the tough trails at the Moab EJS last spring I found they performed as good as any other tire brand and better than several others. They were easy to balance (Procomp 1079 wheels) and drive great on the highway at any speed up to 80 mph and pretty damn quiet for a heavy lug tire, much more quiet then the MTRs from the factory on the rubi. Got about 2,000 miles on them after a summer of 4-wheeling the Colorado trails this summer. I run 8-10 psi on the trail and around 20 on the highway, did run 25 psi on last trip home to see if they rolled easier ( better fuel mileage). Mileage seemed about the same as did performence. Every one has an opinion, be it lift kits or whatever. I'm very happy with my Xterrians so far.

PS, I've been in the truck and auto repair business for 40 years and we've sold every tire brand, ever made for cars thru semi trucks so we've seen what wears and performs and what doesn't.

Sorry to disappoint you man, but I just checked my Pro Comp Xtreme AT's and they definitely said "Made in the USA". I'll post a pic larer, but I'm not sure you can read it. BTW... I'm happy with mine.

Having specified many sets of ProComp tires for custom Jeeps and trucks I had built for new car/truck dealerships since I worked at the time for ProComp's parent company, I can only say in my personal opinion that I would never install ProComp tires on my own Jeep. Again in strictly my personal opinion, they wear too fast, I had plenty of dealer complaints about the Xtreme wearing quickly especially, and their sidewalls are not all that tough either.

In fact, ProComp offered me my choice of free tires to run on my TJ when I was working for their parent company and I turned them down to continue running my Goodyear MT/Rs which really pissed off my manager. In hindsight I should have accepted them to reduce the street wear on my MT/Rs but I didn't want to be caught running ProComp tires on my otherwise well-built TJ by anyone I knew.
