ok trying to figure out what tire to go with and I know someone has opinions about both of these tires here. what is the difference between these two? does one wear better, last longer, ride smoother?
help dazed and confused here.
Keepin the peace.
The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
I ran 33 claw radials for several years. They are alright, but if you get on a side hill, they tend to slide around. They ride a little rough, when i went to my ATs as my street tires I was amazed the difference.
My guess is the PC's will ride smoother because of the larger tread and they may last longer.
I hear PC might be having another buy three get one free in a couple months...

I've had the X-Terrians for about 5-6k miles and they've been a great tire. I use them primarily for crawling and they grip really good on rocks and loose dirt and they can take a beating. They ride surprisingly smooth on the highway as my rig is also my dd. The only thing to remember is that they are directional tires so it'd be good to get a non-directional type for the spare tire.
I have 25,000 miles on the xterrains
and a lot of offroad miles on them heavy rock use these tires take a pounding and they stick to the rock
they work great in the soft dirt, mud, sand,and street
for an all around tire the xterrains are great
My dad runs xtreme at's on his cherokee low road noise great for daily driving and they did very good in mud and on a hill climb that was like slick dirt very slick we couldnt stand on the hill because it was so slippery right now i run PC MT and they are great love him in the mud and on the street havent heard much of anything on ythe claws
Its a JeeP thing ... I Dont Understand!
I have the Xterrain 33 12.50 been on my jeep for 2 years or so. they hardly have any wear and are great on the hwy. low noise and a damn great mud tire. my buddy had claws on his jeep and he got stuck in places i'd just walk through. as for rocks don't know since theres no rocks worth climbin in the deep south. also the claws had a rougher ride and made alot more noise.
