DarthLEGO Thanks to everyone's rousing opinions and suggestions, I just took the plunge and bought Duratracs! Which weren't even in the running when I started this. LOL

Now I just gotta wait a month for them to get delivered.

Clemson Just put a set of Good Year Wrangler Silent Armor. Outstanding off road handling. Really do well on our dunes and back woods. Very quiet at highway speeds but after taking MT off - big difference.

TJGill Id still go with Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's.. Got mine on the way. Cant wait!!

DarthLEGO Excellent and thank you for the update/feedback. It is most appreciated!

Mmmm Grabber or Duratrack. Who thought tires would be such a hard choice. lol

I did , there were a quite a few 8 to 10in deep mud holes that I drove through with lots of GA Red Clay that is super slick. I tried in one stretch of mud to lose traction but the tires grabbed and I got right through with no issues. So far I like them and they did well for an AT. I also added a photo of the trail ride, and one I found of the obstacle course, not my Jeep on course but you get the idea of the terrain I put the tires and Jeep through.

If you want a good all around tire I'd go with the duratracs! Stay away from BFg all terrains and the general grabber at2s if you want tires that will do good in mud and sand. I originally got the BFg all terrains because they didnt have the duratracs at the Dunn tire here. Had them for 2 weeks and got stuck in my gf muddy driveway! The mud was only a half an inch deep and had the consistency of peanut butter I was extremely upset and disappointed with them. Her drive way goes down hill to the back of her house and loops back uphill on the other side to get back to the street and I seriously couldn't get back up the other side with the bfgs. Now the general grabber at2s and the bfgs have great tred life the at2s in a 32inch tire have the 60,000 mile tred life guarantee but once you go to 33 it is no longer in effect and I think the bfgs have a 40 or 50,000 mile one up to 32 inch tire could be wrong. The at2s are good on the street and in the rain and average in the snow but no good in mud (my dad has them on his Durango) they are not terrible but I would still go with the duratracs. I can almost say that the at2s and bfgs are about the same in mud snow rain and street but duratracs are excellent in snow rain street mud. Idk about sand lol hope this helps

EDIT: forgot to say that I returned the bfgs after the incident with my girlfriends driveway and got the duratracs. It's a good thing Dunn tire has a 30 day return period because I was not happy being stuck in a driveway lol.

Rolf I run BFG AT.

Negatives
-Terrible in mud
-Not great in loose sandy stuff. If you deflate them far and run in dunes you have a big chance of debeading.

Positives
-They wear extremely well
-Great for a DD
-They are very tough with a very tough sidewall
-I find them extremely good on rocks and rocky terrain

I did the "easier" trail ride, and those hills were challenging enough for me, saw a few people get hung up. I am reasonably new to Jeep ownership and it was a day to enjoy a good trail with the girl. There are a few more mods I need before venturing into the dark

But to get back to the OP, I saw quite a few BFG's AT & MT, those people never really had issues that I could see.

This is my 2 cents and my experience, I will post picks of the aftermath of mud and dirt on the Jeep.
