I have the standard S/T's which are a surprisingly good blend of street and offroad. The S/T-C's are the same thing, with a more cut-resistant compound.

I highly recommend these tires if you have to have good street manners and reasonable offroad performance. They are MUCH better in mud than the same size BFG A/T's -- I have pictures showing how they clean much better in the same conditions.

If you are strictly concerned about off-road, go for the bigger void tires -- but be advised they will suck on the street particularly in the rain.

Dude, threads like this are why i love this site. My dad used to work for interco in rayne, la cause we lived in port barre, la. These are his words. "Them damned old swamper boggers are softer than wet sh##, and they wear out like bubble gum on the road. the thornbirds arent worth a damn either and they just damn ugly." And for my father's great words of wisdom is why i got rid of my boggers and got the trxus STS all terrains. depends on what kinda stuff ur gonna get into. i get out of sand with these in my 4x2 better than guys in 4x4's with boggers. they are friggin paddles, and they look mean on the ranger. well thats my 2 cents.

BFG ATs are great in the snow and ice, they even have some kinda bad weather rating. the BFG MTs are a good choice but a lil expensive. the ProComp MTs are a good deal, have a siped inner tread and can be had for a buy 3 get one free deal. so far i have no complaints with mine and they are good in the rain, excellent in the mud and im awaiting a good test of snow.

i wouldnt touch a set of swampers if i had to, the thornbirds are a show tire...the radial swamps are alright but still not worth it.

I'm actually considering Revos now. They don't look to be as grippy as I was going for, but they have lots of sizes and seem to be a good mixed use tire. I'm also thinking about Dunlop Radial Rover RTs. Apparently they are a good tire, just a little loud on the highway (no big deal).
