Need to give more info of you will get a lot of different answers. I personally do not like anything that BFG has as the sidewalls are weak and cut easily. (I have cut wasted money on 2 different sets to have them get cut on rocks)
I have had good luck with Maxxis Bighorns for the money, but the composite is soft and they wear fast if driven on the highway a lot, but I have never had any cuts of flats with them. But I only got 20,000 miles out of them and they were bald on 2 different sets.
I have a set of Dunlop MudRovers, and they seem to last much longer than any other mud terrain I have had, but they have no side-wall lugs.
There are so many tirs to choose from.
Is this a daily driver for you?
Do you go offroad?
If so, what kind of offroading do you do?
How much lift do you want, and what size tire do you want to run?
All of this info. will get you better answers
wherever you go there you are..........
^Sorry, I just don't see how you can claim BFG's to have weak sidewalls. The KM2's have a very thick sidewall, I've seen people krawl up sharp sandstone with them with nothing but the sidewall gripping.
My personal favorites are the BGF KM2's, The BFG AT KO's, The Toyo Open Country MT's, and the ProComp Xtreme Mud Terrains'.
I used the Goodyear ATs on my 89 and they sucked in the rain really badly, next I tried BFGoodrich ATs for there better wet road traction. I used them till my 89 hit the GY. Honestly I don't know if i would recomend either.
This is a brand I tried out on my Expedition, I am highly pleased with both its on and off Road characteristics. This is a Daily Driver tire with more agression.
If your looking for strictly a mud tire with good street manners and have deep pockets I really like the Mickey Thompsons. I used these for my on my Jeep for 2 years when it was my daily driver. I got over 10,000 miles on my set.
Still have the nipples on them, I have run these tires through plenty of rolling trails, mud holes, and creak beds, they have held up well.
