265/70/16 stock wheels NO lift
this 'puddle' in the picture was a good solid 30ft long, and almost 2.5ft deep of mud...
I went thruogh it 5x before I sucked water in a rut not associated with that small 'pond' and it killed my engine - didnt blow it, but soaked the filter to the point where the engine got no air.
It was hairy. Especially since my buddies POS jeep had no chance of pulling me out.
However, overall I am happy with the At2's.
They even handled 3400lbs of bricks, 70 miles with out a problem...
However soon, I will be testing the difference between BFG's and the AT2's direct comparison. since I now have both.
Like most on this forum, I dont do alot of offroading, but I like to have the ability to play in the mud. I have been lucky one could say, since after 5 years with the ranger, I have yet to get stuck. Though there was that one time in my driveway, in 4wd in 3 INCHES of snow with my Goodyeard Wrangler RTS tires where I needed to get the tractor to pull me out of my suckage... good thing no one saw me LOL!
Last winter, during a snow storm I hit up the local mall,'s back parking lot and drive thruuogh 3-4 ft snow drifts.... in 2wd... Iwas aired down. I run 24psi in the front and 22psi in the rear in the winter. Again, didnt get stuck, or even close to getting stuck.
My only real complaint with these tires, its it can be a real ***** to do donuts in the snow..
Another observation... One that caught me off gaurd when I first got the tires... the 'get up and go' traction is 'decent' not great, not awsome but decent... however.... more importantly, the stopping traction BLEW ME AWAY.... Step on the brake in snow covered roads or slush is like stopping on dry pavement.
