How about Hankook DynaPro ATM? They are in the $500 to $550 range for a set. Discount Tire told me oilfield companies around here have been getting about 60,000 miles out of them.

My last set of BFG T/A's lasted 4.5 years with over 90,000 km/s on them (60k miles).....I just changed them out for a set of Good Year Wrangler Territories. There was some "legal" tread left, but having crap ball joints caused the inside of the tires to get eaten pretty bad.

The BFG's are good, but expensive. I just didn't have the extra cash handy this time around for another set.

Grabbers are BFG wannabe's...Go with a 32x11.50 too. You'll regret getting 31's.

I got them at a Deal at my Local Discount Tire. They are 30x9.5 not 31x10.50 wouldnt fit on my truck. I worry about hurting my engine or drivetrain with tires that size though although i havent really noticed any affects lately.

please go 32's and bfg's, dont cheap out, but if you must those grabber 2's look really nice, id highly recommend the nittos but they dont come in a 31 for a 15 inch rim

now hear me out......you can fit a 33x10.5r15 on your truck bfg and i dont think they are more expensive than the 31 or 32 iirc, just something to mull over

The BFGs are a fantastic tire, theres a ton of guys on here that run them and love them. Theres also a lot of cheap guys on here that will take the cheapest alternative possible.

265/70/16 stock wheels NO lift









this 'puddle' in the picture was a good solid 30ft long, and almost 2.5ft deep of mud...







I went thruogh it 5x before I sucked water in a rut not associated with that small 'pond' and it killed my engine - didnt blow it, but soaked the filter to the point where the engine got no air.

It was hairy. Especially since my buddies POS jeep had no chance of pulling me out.

However, overall I am happy with the At2's.

They even handled 3400lbs of bricks, 70 miles with out a problem...

However soon, I will be testing the difference between BFG's and the AT2's direct comparison. since I now have both.

Like most on this forum, I dont do alot of offroading, but I like to have the ability to play in the mud. I have been lucky one could say, since after 5 years with the ranger, I have yet to get stuck. Though there was that one time in my driveway, in 4wd in 3 INCHES of snow with my Goodyeard Wrangler RTS tires where I needed to get the tractor to pull me out of my suckage... good thing no one saw me LOL!

Last winter, during a snow storm I hit up the local mall,'s back parking lot and drive thruuogh 3-4 ft snow drifts.... in 2wd... Iwas aired down. I run 24psi in the front and 22psi in the rear in the winter. Again, didnt get stuck, or even close to getting stuck.

My only real complaint with these tires, its it can be a real ***** to do donuts in the snow..

Another observation... One that caught me off gaurd when I first got the tires... the 'get up and go' traction is 'decent' not great, not awsome but decent... however.... more importantly, the stopping traction BLEW ME AWAY.... Step on the brake in snow covered roads or slush is like stopping on dry pavement.

Damn, tires must be damn expensive in NC. 158x4 is still 632 bucks...and that doesn't include any of the added fees you get while buying tires.

Do they have any Discount Tire Company stores there? If they do, this is the place to go. They will match any tire price you bring them, even from the Internet. I will give you two examples...

I bought 33x12.50R15 BFG AT's for my Bronco a little over a year ago. Total cost, including all the extra fees, was about 650 bucks.

My buddy bought a set ot 35x12.50xR15's, Cooper Discoverer SST's, from discount tire. AFter all the fees he only paid about 820 bucks.

Those are both great deals.

just my 2 cents but I bought Wrangler TD's and have nothing but awesome luck with them. My buddy has a 77 F250 with super swampers and a 460 in it and I went where he went no problem. Quiet on the road, but will throw a rooster quite aways out the back.

I got mine for $400 bucks brand new from my local dealer.

Had theses tires on when I pulled a really stuck FJ out of wet clay and mud in 2wd!
