I love the BFG A/T because I primarily drive my truck on the street. There is no on road noise and when I do venture off road, they have great traction. I like the way they look too (as if looks really matter)

looks always matter, isnt that why we fix up the exterior of our truck, but i will never stand by yokohama ats, they are like slicks in the mud, i would love to get a new set up BFG at but they are very $$$$$$ so i bought 5 buckshots with nice f150 rims for 300 they got something like 60-75% tread left, and i figured i can sell the f150 rims to make some money back

Cooper STT's Rock! I've had mine on for 6 months now and there doing great!

Cut threw the standing water on the road well without pulling the wheel.

and If your worried about snow STT's are partialy siped from the factory..

Up here a lot of trucks are running them in the winter without studs, just putting extra siping in the center lugs...

Looking for a M/T that will wear well on the street you may wanna look at the Cooper S/T.

BFG A/T's can kiss my A**. I had a set on my 96 and they wore out at 30K. BALD. had a really hard time keeping them balanced too..

Yoko's Geolander A/T did well on the 96 got 50K out of those and they cut threw standing water well... have to keep up with the rotation they tend to start cupping due to there long outer lugs..

hmm this is all sounding good. I am primarily on the road, so I think I have narrowed myself to ATs. The DC Mud Country's would be great, but if only in 32...

Matt, How do the MTZs wear?? I have never heard first hand about how MT tires are. I have always had the mtx in the back of my mind.....

I think I might just go ahead and be a tool.... I have a friend who is an assistant manager at discount tire and he layed this offer to me... tell me if you think it is worth going for...

32x1150 BFG AT
50,000 mile prorated warranty
life time rotate/balance

for $617

well...may not be getting the tires soon, although please tell me what you think about the deal....
I experienced the 'accident mod' on Saturday, and after talking to my father, sounds like he is pushing for me to pocket the money and NOT fix my truck, which OBVIOUSLY I am VEHEMENTLY against!! We'll see.... Basically I got rear ended and the other guy was at fault.... my rear bumper/exhaust/maybe tailgate need to be fixed or replaced...crap

yeah, I may go that route... I am still stuck in the 'i want it to be perfect' stage and every imperfection bugs me...but after all it is rusted like hell, so I am working on getting over that...
The biggest problem is I am so nit picky about it...

If you want a A/T give Toyo Open Country A/T's a look. They come in popular sizes & are cheap. I've had mine since 2004, they are wearing perfectly, I've never have had an alignment, they grip on dry, stick on wet (never broke traction in the rain before), and if snow is a concern last year we had 15.4 inches of snow and they only time they spun was on 2wd, uphill, open diff, and from a stop.

i love the MTZs, the front ones are toast after about a year and a half but the back is still about half tread. You have to remember I'm really hard on my tires.

between my alignment (camber) always being tweaked due to the saggy coils and all my time tearing up the tires on dirt roads i think they had a noble life

they are amazing off road. I've been running 2wd for the past year on and off and they have never disappointing me

If you want a tire that is pretty quiet on the road and really does well on road and off then look at these

http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT...Hankook-MT.htm

I got my first set 2 weeks ago, and i have put abnout 500 miles on them. I am pleased with them overall. Very easy on the street, and esp in rain. Off road they clean out really easy, they do pick up rocks pretty bad though. I have been a few places in my 2wd i thought i would have never made it, but they pull me threw them. I got all 4 mounted and balanced for $620, and from all the people i talked to, they said 40xxx miles or more out of them if rotated properly.
