What tire should i run?

I have an 04 with 2.5 inches of lift and I will most likely add a 1 inch body lift soon, thinking about running either 32 or 33 inch BFG MT, BFG AT or Goodyear duratracs, what do you guys think I should I run out if these 3? My jeep is a DD but I do like to go mudding and hit the trials every once in a while, any of you guys have a luck with a different tire in the same price range as these? Thanks guys and gals

BFG MT is the best for mud out of the three
BFG AT will last the longest on the road
Duratrac will have great traction on any surface, and while not clearing mud as well as the BFG MT, it does better than most AT tires.

my choice is the duratrac or even the MTR depending on how many road miles they will see

I really like the duratracs and they will see quite a few road miles so I'm leaning towards those

I've had the Duratracs for a couple years now, and I'll probably buy them again in a couple years when I need tires again.

I ran Toyo MT's on my '99 for years. No vibration, fairly quiet, good all around off road tire, I'd air down to 5 psi offroad, good mileage/ wore well. I ran w/ guys who had Goodyear Wranglers & M/T's that liked the performance of those too.

I would say the BFG AT however you like mudding and this tire is horrible in mud. Everything else however is pretty great even the price.

My pick would be the BFG MT simply because its a similiar design to the AT with mud performance. Quite, great traction on most surfaces, great price, and great longevity.

I have a 3" suspension lift with 32" bfg AT I drive 70 miles or so a day, so i wanted the all terrains for that reason. They work well on the road, and fairly well off road. As stated, they pack mud fairly easy. You can see the amount packed in after a couple hours offloading. I ended up trimming my stock flares and I'm getting an extra 1.25" bl to accommodate more flex out of the suspension.

I dont run them but I know guys that do. They wear very similar to the ATs, very nice. Just do regular rotating and they will do you well

I didn't have a problem with them in the snow this winter and I would get out every time it snowed and head down back-roads that do not get plowed. I live on the eastern shore of VA so we only get snow above 4" once in awhile we got 10" this winter and I had no issues running in the fields and unplowed roads. they run great in rain great grip and no hydroplaning.

They look way better in person the pic does not do them justice. I have better pictures of them if you would like them.

sounds like a great tire especially for the price, there are a lot of great reviews and a lot of bad reviews on them so I will do some research, thank you so much for you help
