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....
How do you know you didnt have other problems? lol, my Pro Comp a/t's were freaking GREAT in the snow...i got everywhere in 2wd last winter..


I have the MT's now and i like them alot, i can see where they are going not as good in the snow, but they look mean. I would reccommend them. Idk why everyone hates the procomp brand, cooper makes them..

I've yet to have issues with my MTs in the rain. I went from 31 BFG ATs to 33 BFG MTs. With the 31s I saw 22.6 mpg tops, low was 16.1. With the MTs the high I've seen is 19.7 and low was 15.4 mpg. EPA rates me at 19 HWY, 15 city....I can't complain! Of course I'm also on 4.10s

Back to the rain though. Out west it seem roads are a little more "slippery when wet". There appears to be lots of oil used in the laying of asphault around here. Even with that I haven't had issues with my MTs on the wet roads around here, in TX, and in AZ. Traction seems to be just a tad less than the ATs, but I attribute that more to me needing new brakes and having larger tires than OEM (33x10.50x15 vs 31x10.50x15) than the tire itself. Tread dept is also deeper in the MT than with the ATs. My ATs when I tossed em at ~38 to 39K miles were slicks on wet roads. I'm thinking the MTs should last larger to to more tread. Like I said, the only thing I don't like about the MTs is how they handle on sandy or gravel roads. And that's only when they're dry. Rucker Canyon rd in AZ + Labor Day weekend 2006 rain storms = MT FREAK'N FUN! Drenched soaking wet goopy sand road, OMG! ~3-4 miles worth of 50mph driving pure bliss! I even find the MTs to grip better on rocky surfaces. I've had a lot less of me spinning my tires in 2wd with the MTs and a lot less need to go into 4hi as a result than when I had the ATs.

i dont think that the pro comps suck i just think that they dont look as aggressive as the bfg cause they dont really have much side tread, i think the biggest problem im having with my decision is the snow driving with the m/t.....i dont do it alot but when i do drive back home up north in the winter time i dont want to die.....

I agree, i dont care for the sidewall apperance of the procomp a/t but i like the tread pattern on it alot more than the BFG a/t. Plus they have never let me down, thus why i would reccommend any Pro Comp tire.

Offroad, you'll be able to go places in 2WD with the M/Ts that you'd need 4WD with the A/Ts.

If you're going to be in the mud, a M/T is 1000x better. (Well duh!) It's also better in just about every type of offroad terrain except sand and ice/packed snow.

gotca i know for sure damn near my 32x11.5x15 will fit on my truck with the alcoa now that i have one in my hand but BFG run a little small on width. Procomp is more true to size so it might be harder to fit them

put it in 4wd and drive! i ran buckshots last winter and MTRs this winter. i really like driving with the mudders verses the ATs I had two sets of AT it allows you to drive in the snow better but not play in the snow.

I'd have to agree the PC A/T's did me well in the snow when I had them on and that's on a RWD truck. And at the time I was working in a hilly area. I did add some weight to the bed which certainly helped, but the tires did their job. They even have a "Severe Weather" Rating which from what I remember means they can be used without chains when chains are required... or something to that extent. I've never dealt with chains and snow, that's more for you Mid-west and Northern guys

im not sure what the prices are around you, but if you have your heart set on the procomps, you might want to check out a set of Mastercraft Courser M/T's they are also made by cooper and the tread pattern looks almost exactly like the procomps. i dont know if the price difference will be that significant, but i know quite a few people who always run other mastercraft tires and have never had any problems with them wearing faster than usual.

Procomps

Mastercrafts

Say what? I think they have a pretty attractive sidewall for a inexpensive M/T.

well i guess they just dont look as aggressive as the bfg m/t, those side lugs just make those tires, i went tire shopping today and im getting bfg a/t's for sure now, i didnt realize how deep the tread was on a brand new one......cant wait to get them....
