I was just wondering what tire people like on here. This isnt a debate. I am just looking for some feedback on how well a tire performs by an unbias person. I just wore out a set sof swamper ssr's. I loved the tire but no snow traction and they wore real fast.bout 15,000. I was looking at the dunlop mud rovers and the new goodyear mt with kevlar. Thanks for the imput

i've had the BFG all terrains which were a descent tire. the BFG mud terrains left a lot to be desired in the "wear" category. The kumho venture mud terrains were my favorite. they looked and performed like the BFG muds but lasted twice as long in the same driving conditions. the i have the Dean Wildcat all terrains on my cj and am very happy with how they perform off road. i currently have the kumho road venture all terrain tires on my tj. they perform well off road and last very long on road.

So far one of the best I've liked is the Maxxis Bighorns. I ran them for almost 3yrs and got about decent milage out of them for being a MT. I've also ran the BFG MT's but didn't seem to do as good wheeling wise vs Bighorn.
I'm currently running Federal Couragia MT's and doing a review on them since there are a few that think since it's a low cost tire and not a name brand that it will be crappy, so I guess we'll see over time. So far I have 2,000 miles on them and running great. They are amazing in the mud and this weekend will be finding out how they are on rock and sloppy mud since will be at the Badlands park and it's supposed to be raining the whole day while there, so should be very fun... *evil laugh* hehehehehe

I have the maxxis buckshots and they perform great in the mud. I can't say about the wear because I only have 1500 miles on them.
