I vote my Dick Cepek Radial Mud Country's -- I have ran them for a year now, rotated every 3000 miles - fantastic wear, most of my work and hangout driving is all highway - and I go off road all the time out here, fantastic grip, great traction on pavement whether its wet/dry/icy; bogs through mud, clambers over tough rocks, and keeps ya going wherever you need to go! :-)

I have 33/13.5-15 Swamper LTBs that I use ONLY for off road. They are incredible offroad, but I can't stand them on the road. They are nowhere near round and one of mine was 84 ounces out of balance. Over 5 pounds! They beat the hell out of my poor little truck.


Sooo... If you are going to run them on the road don't get LTBs. I run BFG Mall Terrains on the road DD, but throw on the swampers to have a little fun.

I'm in the same boat as you offroad wise and I think I'll get the MTR's. Unless my contact can't get them, then I'll get KM2's

No not yet. I was just throwin the idea around when I posted it. Once I park the truck for the 5.0/c4/8.8 swap in a few weeks I would gladly sell the 33" to somebody close by so I can upgrade. Im thinkin a set of 35's would work better with my c4 trans and 4.56 gears.

haha thats pretty impressive. i bet your wheel was bent though if it callled for that much.

i had to do roadforce matching on a set of 35 inch swampers with a bunch of miles on them. registered at 190 road force and was able to get them down to 100 or so. a good set of car tires has less than 5 haha
