it depends on how you use them, Ive got a set of mastercrafts, i've had firestones, ive had bfg. . .its all on how you use them what you plan to use them for. Mine are strictly for off-road use, ive got another set of stock wheels/tires to run around town. Also M/T tires are a pite to balance they take alot of weight and most places like to charge more for that. In my honest opinion if you do alot of highway driving and go off road maybe everynow and then, grab a set of A/ts, theyll last longer and hold up to just about anything you throw at them. And they still look nice. Grabber A/t's BGF A/Ts Firstone A/Ts are all good tires that i recomend. Id try and go with something thats not a name brand, thats an off brand, generally better bang for your buck. just my .02

My driving is about 50/50, which is why I was looking at M/T's.

Whoohoo, DC is looking to see what they can do for me since they are so worn after so few miles. Oh, and I guess Mickey Thompson owns the,m, didn't know that.

Through my experience and seeing many of my friends buy cheap-o mud tires, spend the extra money now and you will be glad you did. Alot of my friends have ran Wild Countrys and Mud Kings and have went through set after set and keep buying them again even though they suck on and offroad. My friends cheap-o Wild Countrys were toast at the 10k mile mark. I have had my BFG Mud Terrains for 10k miles now and they look exactly like the day i got them and I offroad a fair amount in mud and rocks or what not. And the bfgs balance true, wear even, ride great, and do extremely well on all types of terrain that I have had them in. Trust me spend the little bit extra now. You will be very happy you did.
