35" Mud-Terrain or All-Terrain?

Hey everyone, since I'm selling my 34's, I was wanting to get some new tires. I'm gonna get some 35x12.50x15 BFG Mud-Terrain or All-Terrain. Which would be better for my truck? I do more mud than sand or anything, but I was wanting yall's opinion on these tires... THANKS!

Brenton

if you do more mud dont get the A/T's there just that not great in mud just OK. and personally for the price I would contact Brian and get some buckshot mudders it will be TONS cheaper and they will last longer. I love BFG's but dang there wear sucks on the mudders

M/T's, all the way, my next set of tires will be boggers, but given the choice of AT's or MT's I would go for MT's and don't listen to anyone that says MT's make alot of noise because I have 35 MT's and I don't think thay make alot of noise at all.

Eh, Brenton I wouldn't recommend BFG Mudders to anyone after i've had them on my work truck. The AT's are amazing tires, I love them, but I would recommend getting some 35x12.5x15 Goodyear Wrangler Mt/Rs. A buddy of mine has 35's on his taco, man they look mean that big...

The ProComp mud terrains are nice because the center tread area (which is what mainly contacts the ground on the street) is siped and that will help a lot.

The new Cooper STT's are also -- but they don't come in 15" sizes...

I'm in favor of a mud terrain if you're prepared to deal with a bit more noise, and watch it in the rain and on ice more than other types. However, the siped mudders are pretty good.

Buckshots are Asian imports and not worthy of consideration.

I repeat my usual mantra: BUY AMERICAN!!!

Maxxis International, a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of high performance tires, recently announced its plans to build a new manufacturing facility in Thailand.

Maxxis made the decision to build the new facility in response to a growing demand for its passenger radial and light truck tires, which currently account for the majority of the company’s sales. When phase one of the multi-phase project is completed in late 2004, the plant will produce 10,000 units per day and employ 1,700 workers.

“The addition of the new plant will quickly enable us to continue our strong growth in radial automotive tires and will support our facilities in Taiwan and China. This move is concurrent with the expansion of our mainland China plant,” said Greg Rauth, national sales manager of the Automotive Division.

The plant will be located on 72 acres in the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate in Rayong City, south of Bangkok, Thailand. The estate is a 3,000-acre industrial site housing over 100 companies, catering mainly to the automobile industry.

Thailand is the ideal location for the new Maxxis facility for a number of reasons. The country is one of the world’s major suppliers of natural rubber, as well as Asia’s major production base for automobiles. More than 10 automobile manufacturers, including Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Toyota, General Motors and Ford Motor Company are located in the area. In addition, suppliers to the automotive industry such as Michelin, Goodyear and Bridgestone, have also set up production sites in Thailand.

The decision to build the new facility comes on the heels of several recent expansions due to Maxxis’ growth: an expansion of the mainland China facilities, the relocation to a new and larger distribution center in Rancho Cucamonga, California, and an expansion of Maxxis’ U.S. headquarters in Suwanee, Georgia.

Maxxis has grown tremendously in the last five years, and the new plant in Thailand along with the other recent expansions will facilitate that growth. For continued updates and developments, please visit Maxxis.com.


So Maxxis is international, but they are expanding here too.

maxxis is not american made, fellas... of course they have to have american offices...


I say IF ANYTHING of those choise, BFG. I think pro comps suck major butt and I dont like the buckshots so much either. But why are you downgrading from SAWMPERS???? thats totally illogical??


BTW, Im sure some of you are wondering why Im not plugging GY MT/Rs here. heres my reason. MT/Rs are best on rocks. In mud theyre good but only slighty better than the BFGs and it doesnt justify the price difference if you dont want to take em on rocks...
