Serisouly? You're gonna need to give a bit more info. What do you expect them to do? What do you want out of them? etc

M/T's sure look a whole lot better (actually ProComp M/Ts look ) Get BFGs or at least something with side wall thread! The Cooper STT (new design) or GY MT/R's. also come to mind. But they are gonna be $$$ and wear quicker than A/T's.

I've had PC A/T's, BFG M/T's & Cooper STTs
($)<---------------------------------Price ($$$) Coopers close to if not exceeded $200/tire (33 others were 31s)
Noise ------------------------------->(Louder) Coopers louder but were 33x12.5 vs BFG 31x10.5
Style ------------------------------>(Better IMO)
Offroad -----------------------------> Coopers and BFGs close. Coopers were 33s BFGs 31s.
<----------------------------Street (wet) A/Ts are better

if you had a set of BFG all-terrains wear out fast, you had other problems........i have had 2 sets of BFG all-terrains....the first set i replaced in 60,000 miles and the second set i took off at 40,000 miles and they still had 15-20,000 in them...........i am now on my 3rd set of BFG all-terrains(2nd set on my truck now).....if your suspension parts are in good shape, then a BFG a/t will last for minimum of 50,000 miles...heck they are warrantied to last 50,000 miles......

you will be disapointed with the Pro Comp's....

i had a set of the Pro Comp A/t's and they sucked....couldn't do anything with them in the snow, in rain they were way to slick, and they wore horrible.......

If you drive mostly on road, then you want the a/t's....any m/t is good on road, but they will wear faster than an a/t on the road....

I like my BFG Muds over the stock BFG ATs I had. Only thing I don't like them (muds) is on a sandy/gravel road. They don't grip as well as the ATs. Of course the ATs didn't do too well in mud, but that's why one's a mud and the other an all terrain tire. For the most part though, the muds have been VERY good to me on all surfaces.

This time next year I should be at 4.88s and 35 BFG ATs though. Noise wise these muds aren't much louder as my ATs were. Matter of fact I'd say they are equal. I wore my ATs out fast, but I attribute that to me and my driving habits. Factor in the off-roading I was doing with them and my driving habits and I'd say I got great life out of them. All but 1 still had pretty decent tread left. I have 1 of those 3 as a spare since the stock spare is a P235 (~29inch) continental.

But yeah, I can't echo enough about others' suggestions of the BFGs. I had P235 BFG ATs on my 2wd 93 and loved them.

every review I read said the BFG MTs weren't any louder than the ATs. So I went with the muds and don't regret it. 99% on road driving here too.

ive had both i had 31" bfg mud terrains which were aggressive looking but killed me on gas, ride sucked, and wore quickly, sucked in rain, slid around in snow. I just bought the oem sized bfg all terrains about 3 months ago and havent had any problems. Awesome traction in rain and heard nothing but good about them in snow. Id go with a/t
