Getting 35s, suggestions?

Well I'm putting a 3" body lift on in the beginning of June. I plan on later that week, to order a new set of 35" radial mud/AT tires. I'm moving to Arizona in August, so that's why I need the radial option. I could prolly use the All Terrains better in Arizona seeing as how there's not that much mud (from what I've seen. Someone prove me wrong here)

Anyway, is there any suggestions? I was looking at the Pro Comp Mud Terrain Radials ... 315/75/16 ...

Thanks

what are your reviews on the FCII's your running now? ive not heard many things about them, but what i have was good. Id look at something different than everyone else runs. MT baja atz's, nitto terra grapplers and dune grapplers, toyo open country a/ts.

I dont picture mud in arizona, does it even raing there?

I was actually looking at the nitto tires ...

the FCII's are pretty sweet, very very quiet on the road, and they hold their own offroad, but, I'd like something more aggressive ... I used to have 34" Super Swamper LTB's ... they were too aggressive (cant believe i just said that) for the type of wheeling i do ... it IS my daily driver, along with my weekend 'wheeling rig ... so I'm looking for something in the middle I guess. I think I'll check out the nittos some more and prolly toyos too.

Thanks man

nothing wrong with a procomp tire for someone whos not looking to see major performance out of them. Look at the new xtreme a/ts or m/ts. the a/ts are the closest all terrain youll get to a m/t. very wide voids in them for a a/t. the regular pro comp all terrain isnt good for much more than a daily driver tire with a better look. they dont perform for poo.

over priced. they are a well built tire, will last a while on the streets because they are of a harder compund, but you can get the same off road performance out of similar tread m/ts for a less price.

The new pro-comp xtreme mud terrains look sweet, much better sidewall than the regular M/Ts that i have.

where are you moving to in az that makes a big difference. if your moving in the phoenix or tucson area your right its mostly desert and at's would probably serve you best. however a lot jeep guys out here run the goodyear wrangler mtrs with a lot of success. if you end up living in the phoenix area i'll take you out to some wheeling spots. i can even sell you tires if you want i work at discount tires so i can get you a good deal.

Hmm alright I'll keep that in mind. I'm going to school at Embry-Riddle in Prescott. But I have family down in Chandler so I'll be around. and du510, I know I definitely and going to re-gear. Not sure what gears I have right now though, so I don't know what to go up to, either 4.10's or 4.56's ... ?

410s are definitely not worth it on 35's; go with 4.56s

have you looked at the goodyear MTR's at all? They perform great offroad and look really good as well. I've heard good stories about the "dura sidewall" they have. There are lots of rocks out here in the desert that will slice your sidewalls if you spin your tires on them.
