procomp tires

ok, heres the deal. i ordered some pro comp at tires and rims. what was sent was pro comp mt on the rims. my question is how bad will my wet weather traction and gas mileage and ride suffer with the mt's. i like the look better (more aggresive) of the mt, but i really like the warranty and severe weather rating of the at.


help the newb out guys. can anyone give me a comparison of these 2 tires please.

I would think that you would be much happier with the traction of the M/T's. There should not be that much difference in the wear, but definately a difference in traction. You won't get the fendor dents, from lack of good footing......lol.

See this thread......a little to rough this weekend

mt's are going to be a bit louder and wear a bit quicker. that's just the nature of the more aggressive pattern. i personally would go at's if 95% of your time is spent on the road. they perform well enough off road for the time you're there, but they'll give you the street performance and last longer. my $.02.

I can only speak from watching other Jeepers and their choices of tires, and watching them over the past year, or so. Also living in Texas does not give me much experience with running in rain. I don't think that one will be any worse than the other, as long as there is a good channel for the water to leave the tread. As far as road noise, you should not get much at all with the M/T's.

With that type of tread tire you wont see much of a decrease in wet weather traction. Only time you really see that is if your running tires like mine with a full blown locker in the rear. Swampers, claws, etc you lose some rain stability. I live in panama city and we get a bit of rain and i drive 35+ miles to town every day. Doesnt bother me a bit unless im trying to take a curve at 40 or better. Boggers dont have lateral traction for nothing. They all about goin forward, not sideways. As for the noise, i prefer my tires to hum and roar. And the mileage differences are minimal in that brand of tire. 40k compared to 50k depending on how well you take care of them.

keep the MT. the pro comp MT's are a pretty mild mud terrain that are pretty street friendly. keep the mud terrains.
