Tires for TJ

i have a 99 sahara with a 2.25coil spacer lift. i am putting 33X12.50's on next paycheck and need some help with what to go with. narrowed it down to the Dayton Timberline, Maxxis Buckshot, Mickey Thompson MTX's, Wild Country RVT (had a set on my old explorer and am not for sure what they call them after the size goes past 31), and the BFG mud terrains. need to know about quality, tread wear, price, and how practical all of these are. maybe rank them 1-5. thanks for the help...

The only tires that I have any experience with are the BFG's, I got about 40,000 miles out of them on my YJ and was pretty happy with them on the trails. In hard packed snow they could get scary, but what doesn't? Other than that, no complaints about them. That being said, I got the same tread wear out of my last set of MTR's, and am much happier with them both off road and on...

well ill let you know when i get my bfg mud terrains mounted...if you look at one of my earlier threads you can see that I too was looking at wild country rvt but when i really thought about it the more i knew i should go with a good brand name reputable tire...especially since they will be on there for a while and you'll regret it if you get a tire that isn't what you want just to save a little cash...to narrow it down i would go with the BFG's, the mickey thompsons, or the buckshot mudders...oh and i think the rvt's are called mud kings past size 31...but the reason i went with bfg over the rvt's is cause although my tire man could get the rvt's for cheap i didn't know how well they would be and i read a review about them and the review said that the rvt's are SUPER LOUD and have bad treadwear...but you should know, you had them on your explorer...how well did you like them? if you didn't like them much i would go with the MT's, the buckshots or the bfg's...preferably the bfg's

the ones i had on my explorer were great on the trails and i lived in lake tahoe at the time, so i got them for the snow. they were loud as hell. they performed better in the snow than any of my friend's tires, but now that i am in TN i that really doesnt concern me. narrowed it down to the Mickey Thompson's or Maxxis Buckshots.

with 33s and only 2.25" lift you will have some tire rubbing if you drive off the road.

^ Nicolas is right - I'd prolly go with 32's at max... BFG A/T TA KO's are the best for the buck IMO. But with my next, I'm going for Mickey THompson MTZ's.

i have 2" BB and 2" BL and 32s. when i use the disconnects i still have tire rubbing at the front. thats why i installed some 0.5" bumpstop extension at the front.
with 33s and only 2" BB you´ll have to extend the bumstops for +2". that doesn´t really improve your offroad capabilities...

I love my mud terrains. They are quiet and have worn very well. And they hook up real nice over most terrain. Also, they are right about the lift. You want at least 3" to go with 33s. The 32s would fit though. My 2 cents.

tires

havent been on here in forever so i figured i would give an update. i went with the 32X11.50 Maxxis Buckshot's. i would recommend them to anyone. i absolutley love these tires, as they perform great on and off-road.

not all of us care

im running 33s stock and the fenders / fender flars have alredy self clearenced in about 6K miles



im not a fan of BFG ... many guys in my club have had trouble with cutting sidewalls ... procomp arent any better ... id go with super Swampers personally ...

if you dont see a lot of off road use ... BFG would be the best tire for the money

I like BFG's I've had them on all my vehicles the mud terrains are quiet and pull great and they handle well on the road in all types of conditions. 33's will probably be a real tight fit though.
