gonna get my first set of aggressive tires...advice

so I have finally given in to temptation/youth/impracticalness and decided I cannot avoid getting some more aggressive tires. I am currently on 31" street tires, and I am going to 32" AT or MT. Can you guys give some input?

I know there will be many votes for BFG AT, but what else? What other tires have you had good experiences with? I am on the road alot, I just can't stand the look of street tires anymore.... MT or AT...
anything welcome....unless I get tons of people just saying get BFG ATs haha.

and what do you think about Pro Comps???

I've heard bad things about Pro Comp. I want to get rid of my ATs now to go with something more aggressive. I LOVE them I just like the looks of a mud tire more.

I was looking for a mud tire as well, I just didnt want the loudness on the street. I have heard that the trxus MT radial is quite quiet though.

Nokian Vatiiva MT's



Cooper STT



^^^^ keep in mind MT's are useless in light snow...

I think BFG AT's are over priced.

If you want to look at some other good tires, check out the Bridgestone REVO's, Yokohama Geolanders, and the Nokian Vatiiva AT's......

How much are you willing to spend? Road noise, lost mpg.

i'm steering towards general Grabber A/T's :great on, off road traction, super light and heavy snow traction, agressive looks, cheap in price $136 per tire from the tire rack.

My first choice is the famous BFG A/T. I would also consider the Nitto Terra Grappler.

negative ghost rider on the pro comps. I'm running a set of 32x11.5x15 and the only thing i think they are good for is leaving black marks on pavement. BFG are a great tire and i would run those if i could afford them the a/t works as well as the toyo M/T junk piles he he yeah i'm never running pro comps again.
