Icon5 Mud terrains vs all terrains

I looked at BF Goodrich tires, and saw that there are 2 tires that i want, but i am not sure what one would be better. The BFG All-Terrains or the BFG Mud-Terrains. I was going to go with the AR Bajas as rims and size wise for the tire as probably 32". Will these fit ok or do i need to get something else. (I am riding on stock height)

Any input would be helpful!!

I would also like to see some pics of other rims on black rangers. :)

I off-road about 1 or 2 times a week and i like medium ride quality. Its not a big factor to me though, i would rather be able to get anywhere off-road! From what i read though, the mud-terrains are almost the exact same as thge all-terrains just a little more tread.

Yeah I believe your truck can only fit 30's maybe 31's, if you want maximum grip offroad get M/T's, if you want decent grip with a good quite (er) ride then get the A/T's. I have the a/t's. Haven't gotten stuck yet but haven't had enough ***** to try to either.

The MT's are crap in wet and snow conditions.

Not always true there are a select few that handle great in snow and rain.

I would go with the MT's. I dont have much use for an AT.

Im not a huge fan of the BFG MT's . They are a popular tire but just not my cup of tea. But thats mainly due to the type of mud an terrain around here.

I've had no problem with my BFG MTs in the rain. Seem to perform nicely IMO, A HELLUVA lot better than the stock BFG ATs I had.

Also M/T's will give you worse gas mileage than the A/T's... I don't know how many mpg, but my mechanic warned me about that
