Hmmmm...

I found a BFGoodrich in size 325x60-15 MT (KM)
this is a good thing (i think) They come out 30.3" tall and 13" wide. I might get away with 2" lift (maybe) or....

abw0004 Yeah get the Mickey Thompson MTZ's. I have a 3" lift on mine with those tires in 33's. They are quiet for a mud tire although all mud tires are going to be somewhat loud. They look aggressive and will last a while

Ibuildembig Have ya looked at an MTZ?

lancetkenyon You can run the Mickey Baja Claws backwards with no issues. They actually work better in the rocks that way, wierd, I know. If you do 40% off road, the Pitbulls will work great. If you expect 50K+ out of any mud tire, look at the GY MTR/K or the BFG KM2s. Both are only in a 33-12.50 though. I don't like Nitto's mud tires, but love their performance street tires. I do not know ANYONE running the Toyo Open Countrys on anything other than a Dude Bro Truck(Glamis tow rig). That might tell you someting.

I am betting with a 3" lift and 33-13.50 on a 10" wide rim, you will be rubbing sometimes. Keep that in mind.

Went shopping - CONFUSED (big time)

Could use actual Jeepsters opinion (again).....Finally decided to go with Pit Bull Rockers 33"x13.5-15 and Mickey Thompson 10" rims w/3" susspension lift and when i went shopping (to 2-3 local places) all the guys were telling me not to get those tires, they wear off fast, can't get ballanced and waaaaaay tooo loud....I don't mind noise (had Super Swampers before) and hope for something little quieter than SS but definately want agressive look. I don't want anything taller than 33's and want wider then 12.5's
One shop was suggesting Nitto Mud Grapplers 33x13.5-15 (still kind of loud but they have the look, other shop was pushing Toyo Mud Country M/T's in 33x13.5-15
I remember seeing BFGoodridge in 325/60-15 and did like the look ALOT!!! (smaller than 33's) My favorites are Baja Claw Radials but the fact that they are directional tires gives me headache when thinking about rotation....
I really don't want to go over 3-3.5" for the lift on my TJ. I will drive on the street 60% - trails, mud, fire roads/gravel 40%
Need agressive look that wears pretty good, not too complicated to balance, multi-directional thread, wider then 12.5, not taller than 33"
If you have done same numbers (or close to it) PLEASE, PLEASE, post some photos of your pride and joy....some comparisons from experience would be great...Really appreciate guys

P.S. o yeah, is there a good place online (any of the sponsors) to shop for all the goodies that someone can recommend? Thanks
