Tires

I'm looking to buy some new tires. Its a toss up between BF Goodrich AT,s or the Pro Comp AT,s. Any pros and cons would be appreciated.

I am a big fan of BFG's that is all I will run on my 4x4's. They have great all around traction. and are quite. they also last for a long time.

I would choose Yokohama A/T's over either of those.

But, if just between those 2, BFG's have a much longer proven track record in thier history. I haven't seen anything about the Pro Comp's that has impressed me yet, exept for maybe price.

i had 32" yokohama ATs before. they´re very good when it rains or in the winter. better than my old goodyear ATs.
but my actual 35" BFG ATs are better when it rains and much better off the road in mud and sand.

Interesting, I've had the opposite. I have BFG AT's on my wife's Sequoia, and in the rain we have to put it into 4x4 to keep the tires from spinning. In the TJ with Yokohama's, I have no problem with grip in the rain.

i have pro comp mud terrains now. can't find a shop that can balance them, they are wearing faster than i would like, they SUCK in the rain and they are a bit louder than some other mud terrains. off road they stick pretty good, but they lose chunks here and there.

as soon as these wear out i'll have BFG's, probably all terrains since i see more street than trail these days.

i love those yoko at geolanders too. but i hear they stopped making them and they now have a new tread pattern. those older style yoko at's imo have the most aggresive tread for an AT out there. great snow traction, and did very goodin all other terrain.

They did change the tread pattern



I had them on my Ford Ranger they were great tires for a truck that never seen off-road.

bridgestone dueler at's also do rather well both on road and off. But between the two you asked about I would go with the BFG, Ran a set on my CJ for a while.. good on road and decent off.
