HkdOnJP the miscomunications i got mine mounted at a local tires shop and they ripped a 1/4 of the bead off put some liquid stuff in and gave me the tire and i didnt notice unitl i looked and saw the goop and a little peice of somethin so i deflated the tire and pulled out a peice of my bead that was about6 inchews long out needles to say i need to learn how to mount them myself
07-12-2007 03:51 PM
debruins im getting 35's and im mounting them myself so no problems there!!
07-12-2007 03:39 PM
HkdOnJP No problem what size are you getting the only other thing i recommend is getting them mounted black wall out i dont really like the white lettering and they would be black wall out but some people just dont understand what that means (the people at the tire shop)
07-12-2007 03:22 PM
debruins thanks your the first person to tell me about them and not suggest a higher priced tire

and it sounds like they are pretty good so i will get them,

thanks!

HkdOnJP Debruins i currently run procomp mt's 31x10.50 and i love them ive ran them for about to years they arent to bad on road noise wise they dont hydro plane to bad and i love them in the snow mud wise theyve got me through stuff i probably shouldnt have been in i had them on my cherokee which we didnt get aligned after the lift so the front wore reaaly bad the back has lost about this much tread --- thats a rough estimate
__
---
keep in mind when i first got these tires i was 16 and amazed by burnouts so i think this is pretty fair tread wear my friend dad in jan and at his funeral we all did b/o in memory and i had rubber dust all over the persons car behind bme and big piles behind my tires i love these tires i would highly recomend them

What do you guys think about thornbirds

MouthfulOfGrass I think the Toyo M/T is the coolest looking tire. I will probably go with that when my Yokohamas wear out.

I can't complain about the Yokohamas though. They are a very sticky tire for rocks. They are wearing a bit too fast for daily driver use though.

Second on my list of good looking offroad tire would be the Goodyear M/T's.

acostabj thanks for all the input here. sounds like the a/t's are probably bestsuited to me for what i do. lots of talk about the snow here but down in lower southern louisiana, snow performance ranks last on my tire demand list, lol. i really like the look of the toyo a/t and m/t too but they are a bit pricey so im thinking ill have to just drink a few brewskies and bite the bullet to get what i really want. i found the toyo a/t 35x12.50x15 online at a site called truckaddons for 174.50 eachand the same size m/t is $234 so im debating between those two now. thanks again for all the input here!!

killerisdead yeah i run 33...12.5 bfg m/t and love them so much more then the a/t if it was the least bit wet out and i hit a turn to fast i would do a 180 that just suck in the snow they worked all right better then in the rain but the m/t are by far my favorite ....but they are loaud as hell on the high way .....bit with the dog i guess........cameron

debruins how about the general tirs, grabber AT2 's???

they look pretty good
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....l=Grabber+AT+2

but otoh pro comp M/T's are only $15 more per tire

hmmmm
07-08-2007 08:57 PM
2much I'm new to the board. I currently run mickey thompson mtz's, road manners are decent, off road great. but for a daily driver, unless you deadset on the killer looks of a m/t, go with an a/t, i used to run bfg a/t's, they are great on road, look really sharp, and took me wherever i wanted to go off road.
07-08-2007 01:40 PM
mrbigjeep i run the bfg muds. they are fine for a daily driver that sees a lot of street.
07-08-2007 01:02 PM

If you look up the thread, it was the MTs that they said they didn't like in the snow. i agree, i like the A/Ts in the snow

cujocna 33"x15.50'.....35"x15.50"..........do I run the smallest tires ever? Man it has just become clear to me exactly how badly I need more lift.........35's would be sweet. Doubt I could go that wide on my 15x10 rims, but I could settle for 35x12.50's.

My buddy has BFG M/T 33x12.50 and he says they work great. Wouldn't know about the snow, I haven't seen it in years.
07-07-2007 10:13 PM
jeeps&comics just ordered 4 bfg ats!!! cant wait...

x2, my BFG A/T's were GREAT in the snow.

jeeps&comics well i was looking at the A/Ts, although the M/Ts look SWEET... i just will be using the jeep as a daily driver back and forth to school mostly, so i think for me A/Ts are the way to go...
07-06-2007 08:28 PM
debruins I think im gonna ge the pro comp M/T's so im all ears as well
07-06-2007 06:19 PM
AzTJ I believe pro comp tires are made by Cooper, and have heard good reviews on both sides... but it depends on which tire your looking at though
07-06-2007 04:43 PM
jeeps&comics any of you guys heard of pro comp tires? if so, how good do you guys rate them?
07-05-2007 07:01 PM
MouthfulOfGrass Problem was, if they don't do the install - they don't warranty 'em either.

Cost an extra $10 per tire for the warranty at the other place.

I ran into that too, so I just had the tires mounted and I put them on myself.

MouthfulOfGrass The best prices I've found with the best warranties are CostCo, then Sam's Club. But neither of them in this area will install anything but stock (auto manufacturer recommended) sizes.

Got tires at American Tire Depot, and the guy came down on price when we quoted him CostCo's price.

jjseel I searched for months on line and off, and in the end, Discount got my business. I could have saved 25 or 30 $ going online and shipping, and then hauling them to a shop, etc. Oh yeah, I love my BFG M/T's. Have them on both vehicles. Probably be better with A/T's, but I love it when my Jeep sings to me!

AzTJ BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO - FTW!

Seriously, if you don't off-road much but want the tires that can perform when you decide to hit a trail. These are the ones. The life of these tires have easily seen 80k when properly rotated and maintained. Out here they work great on the rocks and sand/mud. THere really isn't a better tire for a daily driven weekend warrior.

Best places for BFG's is DiscountTire... You might be able to find some deals at 4WD.com and 4WheelParts.com
07-05-2007 06:51 AM
jeeps&comics i hate to hijack this thread, but im looking to get tires, and do any of you guys have a place you get them at a decent price?
07-05-2007 06:36 AM
daddyjeep It sure seems like most of us are really happy with the BFG MT's. They do hydroplane and they aren't really good on snowy roads, but they definately get the job done.
