eagle223 BFG ATs are decent in mud, they do fill up with mud quickly and turn into slicks. I would go with more of a mud terrain tire. 4x4 garage has a magazine out right now that they've tested many different tires so it can give you a pretty good idea of performance in mud. I've heard good things about the MT/R and BFG KM2s and the Duratracs. And those all get pretty good tread life.

What kind of Yukon weighs 3 times as much as a Jeep? That would be 14,100 lbs, well over the GVWR of a dual rear wheel 3500 Diesel HD truck. That's one heavy Yukon, heard of H1's in that weight range with body armor and such but not a Yukon.

gregward93 BFGS km2's. Have 30,000 on them and could go for 10-15 thousand more.

the guy that convinced me to buy these tires had over 40k miles on his and they were almost 1/2 worn

great tire,I choose them over the BFG KM2s
Glad to hear you like these tires. I was thinking about them. The center groove looked kinda unusual, but I do like the tapered blocks. Good to hear you are that happy. Mabey need to see some in person.
Thanks. Do you have any pics of them here on the Forum?
Kinda leaning towards the Cooper SST's too. So confused!!

drl650 BFG KM2s. Very quiet and handle well on the street.Will try some mud this weekend but so far very impressed plus they are much lighter than the others.

JEEPIN98TJ Thank you for all your comments

Any word on the Pro Comp. Extreme A/T? They say their rated for 40k

Skol-Vikes I have the Copper AT3's on my Yukon for about 20K and do a lot hunting and driving in the snow plus highway miles. I have nothing bad to say about them.

The Kelly Safari TSR is basically a Duratrac and can generally be found cheaper. Goodyear is the parent corporation behind Kelly Tire.

40k and 50k is a great range that's what I'm looking for

And no i haven't looked at all at copper tires

I'm running the cooper stt's as well. They are awesome in everything I've had them in. Can't comment on tread life as I've only had them for about 4,000 miles so far. But for the price, they do everything that the higher priced brands can do.

DuraTracs rock. You can get 50K out of em, if you keep em properly aired and rotated.

Not good for rock crawling, though, because of the sidewalls.

4fit Have you considered Duratracs? They are more of a AT/MT hybrid than just an AT and they get great reviews, even in mud. Plus, you can sign up for treadlightly.org ($25) and get a $100 mail in rebate on them.

JEEPIN98TJ Damn only 30,000??? Gezz those are the ones I was really looking at too

Hey thanks for your comment

Thoughts on best mud tire for on and off road

More of a weekend warrior
(alot of road driving)

MT MTZ's: Milage? Performance?
GY MTR's: Milage? Performance?
Interco TrXus: Milage? Performance?

Or go cheap
BFG all-terrain's: Milage? Performance?

Those are basically what I'm wanting
