Now that I have a lil bit more room in the fenders I want to put 31''s on my baby. I am having a tough time deciding between MTRs and BFG MT. I do mostly street driving and I like to go trail riding every chance I get. I play in mud and very little rock. I need something that will last, as my wife told me I couldn't buy tires every 6 months or so. I would Love to hear everyone's opinons and experiences.

i would get the bfg mud terrains...but i've heard that the MTRs last longer...both are decent on the road although the MTRs are probably better...but the MTRs are more expensive...the mud terrains aren't too bad on the road and they should last for at least a while...plus they do good off road too...by the way...you could go with 32's since you have the 2 inch lift...you should have clearance for that since you put 31's without any lift at all...but just a suggestion...you might have a better reason to go with the 31's

You're gonna where the hell outta your mudders on the road. Take it from another southern boy. When I was driving my Jeep daily, I was running through them.

I hate to admit this, but I've been running Hankooks. I bought a set when money was a little tight, and they have held up well. They do descent in the mud and aren't wearing badly.

I used to work for a polymeric company. BFG uses a high percentage of recycled rubber which makes them a little soft. Not as bad as Firestone though. We supplies to both of them and Firestone was really using alot of it. Remember the Firestone thing? They were buying that crap from the company I worked for.

yeah you should easily be able to get 30000 out of them...i've heard very good things about them...good off road but quiet on road with good tread wear

what about Maxxis Buckshot mudders?
I have seen these at the Co-OP and they are pretty inexpensive. They seem to be pretty durable and made of hard compound...

MTs are better in mud and soil and have a slightly stiffer sidewall, MT/Rs are better on rocks and sandy stuff and have a very soft and nice riding sidewall (yet still more durable)

I've ran th Procomp MTs (which are basically just BFG MTs, just siped and with a softer compound) as well as MT/Rs; I like the MT/Rs better because of the wheeling down here - both did about the same in regards to longetivity and road noise.

I have had a set of the Maxxis Buckshot mudders on my Silverado and I love them. Maxxis makes some other tires that I'm not sure of but they look cool. You will be able to get at least 30000 out of a set of the Buckshots. They are very good on and off road with the exception of sand.
