h8nagn So I just picked up a set of used Bridgestone Dueler M/T's 33x12.50 R 15s, I was wondering if anyone has run these before?

98TJSahara Loved my BFG's (31 x 10.5's) i'd swear by 'em. They have 70,000+ on them and still have life. But am also surprised with how good the Pro Comp Mud Terrains (33x12.5's)are holding up on mostly pavement driving.
09-24-2008 03:59 PM
Bob the bfg's may cost a little mroe but they are worth it, they last along time for street use compared to others

whiteyj I've got Dunlop A/T's and they suit my rig well. Light wheeling and making a 70 mile commute run or two each week.

SocialD I have a set of Firestone Destination A/T. Love them. You can always check out tirerack.com, they have great reviews on that site.

x2 BFG ATs are excellent road tires and have a great tread lifespan.

BFG AT's are excellent all purpose street tire. Make sure you rotate them religously.
x2 31s are the max height on a stock TJ, you may have to adjust your steering stops though - if you experience control arm rub.

JeepGirl411 I love my Pro Comp Extreme MT. I have a 4 inch lift with 33s but I haven't had any issues and I live in Ct and have the snow and rain too and I love mine.

I only get a small vibe at like 40 mph for a second or two at WOT. I dont have any other vibes .That's not even close to "HORRIBLY".

I have over 4" of lift at the rear.

Timberman X2 on the BFG Ats.. If you are looking for moderate wheeling (no rocks or mud) then I would absolutely go with the Ats.. They are by far the best snow tire I have had on any rig.. They will last longer than the vehicle should you treat them right.. Plus, the ATs are quite road worthy.

Now, if you plan on doing any off-roading; you must (and I mean Must) go with the BFG MT KM (go ahead, start the flaming guys).. Discount/America's Tire will give you a great deal.... PLUS they will rotate them for free.. I have 22" wheels on my Yukon and they trade the stock for the deuces as much as I want and they don't charge a dime..

So, back to the KMs: Out here in Or-ee-gun; you will basically see two types of tires on the trail...BFG MT KM or Goodyear MTR.. I am a huge hater of everything goodyear, so of course you won't hear a recommendation from me on those.. I have actually seen a few rigs with the Pro Comps on as well and from what I hear, they are a decent tire for the $$$..

Also, don't go budget here. I have a friend who purchased 31X10.5 BFG MT KMs, but his first ride on the trail made it immediately apparent to him that they were too small. He clanked on every rock we tried to overtake.

Spend the money now on a 4" lift and 33" X 12.5s.. You can find many great lifts out there, but please make sure if you go this route to by the CV Shaft and Slip Yoke eliminator because otherwise, your rig will ride HORRIBLY!!

Ol' Red ive had bfg muds and a/t's and loved the mud terrains. heard great things about goodyear mtr's too
09-19-2008 12:14 AM
Triple88a I'd go with a 2" BB and 1-2" bl and add 33s. ~200-300 for the lift and then whatever for the tires.

09-18-2008 10:57 PM
Giancarlo go with two inch lift 32x10.5 tires or 4 inch lift 33x12.5 tires.. as for tires bf goordich at or pro comp x terrain

I thought I was seeing things. Thats odd.
09-18-2008 04:23 PM
ct-tj +1 for the Pro Comp X-Terrains. Ive had them for a year and they havent let me down yet. Ive also run BFG ATs and they are a great tire that will last forever, they just kept getting clogged with mud.
09-18-2008 02:29 PM
EnigmaMan I would suggest looking at D|ck Cepek FC II's or some Pro-Comp Xtreme Mud Terrains.

Awesome in the mud, snow and everything inbetween
09-18-2008 01:31 PM
mr4x4 you can get the new bfg km2 now the new sizes are out I had the coopers they chunked out so bad I only had them for a couple months

Look for BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 tires by size in the Las Vegas Area - Discount Tire Co./America's Tire
09-18-2008 01:24 PM
Darton I really like my Cooper Discoverer STT's they seem to be holding up to everyday driving really good. Also I loved the Cooper Discoverer ATR's I had on my Ranger they are an all-terrain Radial and they are AWESOME for an everyday tire with the ocasional off raod trip.
09-18-2008 01:07 PM
Reclaimer I'm looking into some Interco Truxxus AllTerrains..a little cheaper than the BFG's with a little more agressive look to them.

09-18-2008 11:38 AM
Jma20a for a stock suspension you can go as big as 31's but you may have some steering rub. i have a set of dunlop mud rovers 31x10.5 R15 and they rub a little but that is an easy fix.

MOz I grew up in Jefferson Twp....know it very well.
09-18-2008 11:21 AM
brode87 Morris county area, Denville specifically. Not sure if your familiar with the area.
09-18-2008 11:08 AM
MOz BTW - welcome to WF.

What part of Jersey you from?

brode87 Thanks. How about size. How big can I go w/o a lift?
