I have 32 x 11.50 x 15 Pro Comp mud terrains for about 1100 miles now and they seem pretty good so far.

I ran a set of Pro Comp MT's on my CJ and they were good. This is at Tellico before it was closed. I flat towed the Jeep from NM to NC and back on these tires.

In my experience having worked for ProComp's parent company, they wear faster than many other popular brands... especially when compared to a tire like from BFG. I received a lot of complaints from automotive dealers we sold ProComp tires to who had many wear complaints from their retail purchasers.

It is usually works out better to ask opinions on something before buying it than buying it and then asking for opinions.

This is usually the best way of buying things from my experience as well.

I had pro comp mudders on a 86' silverado I owned about 10 years ago. As Jerry started, they wore very quickly. I am now running a/t's and surprisingly, they are doing great. I've put about 6k on them and they show virtually no tread wear. I was also impressed with how well they perform in the sand and the moderate offroad trails I've done with them so far. I had Bfg a/t's before on my z71, and these seem to be holding up equally as well... So far. Hopefully, they continue to hold up this well. I do think that it is strange that they discontinued the 33x12.5r15 in the a/t.

I have used their AT from time to time over the years on my daily drivers along with BFG ATs. I have found the difference to be a wash, no complaints, high milage out of both brands if maintained . Not all model PC tires are made by the same company naturally PC don't actually make everything they have their name on including tires.

I had some Xtremes for a while, just swapped them out for BFGs. Offroad they were great. My issue was wear, they are directional tires so I didn't rotate them like normal tires.

Thanks for sharing you experience and advice that is what I hope to gain when asking a question on this web forum. Those of you who feel I have put the cart ahead of the horse please note the tires are ordered and I have the ability to change the order if I feel the need. Your assumptions are poor at best you would better serve this forum if you would stick to the questions.

Pardon me, you won't be further troubled by any more unwanted input from me.

I've been running a set of Xterrain 315/75/16 Pro Comps for 3 years and find them to be a good tire for what I do. Mainly Moab stuff and all of our Colorado trails including Holy Cross. Got about 5,000 on them and the wear is ok so far, I rotate the spare in also. Mine is not a DD and sets inside during the winter. No more miles than I put on them, they may rot off before I wear them out. I run with several wranglers that have 35 inch Good Years and I feel my pro Comps do a little better on the red rocks in Moab. They are not to loud on the Highway, my stock Good Years that came new on my 05 Rubi were bad for highway noise and were worn out at 22,000 miles. You can't expect a rock crawling tire to last with it's design. If you guys want long wearing tires, go with Michelin. Over the years we've tried every tire made on our Tow Truck fleet and Michelin performs the best on mileage.

I would hope you would continue to give your knowledgable input to my questions. My rebuttal was not intended for your cute comment as it was the band wagon that jumped on it. I understand the icon you posted your comment was ment to be lighthearted fun.
Frisco, I could not agree more a good alterrain tire is going to start with a sticky soft rubber downside is its going to wear out faster, I can except that I'm looking for performance high milage is secondary to me. Thank you all for the positive input.

If you are looking for performance more than smooth ride and mpg you will be just fine.I have my second set of xterrain,s on .they do very good on trails of any surface.I run air pressure a little low even on the road trading a little mpg for a much better ride,plus they seem to to wearing better than the first set did.

I used to have 33" pro comp muds. They weren't bad tires, I had no complaints. Pretty indestructible, performed fine. I don't put many miles on the Jeep so can't comments on how fast they wear. They were on the jeep for almost 10 years.

Back then they were worth the money, but know they have gone up and price and are overpriced for what they are. Why would I buy Pro Comps when I can get a set of Goodyear MTR/Ks for CHEAPER? Doesn't make sense, and the MTR/Ks perform way better than the Pro Comps did.
