A good mud tire will only get between 20,000 and 30,000. I have Cooper Discoverer STT's currently. Two of them are just about bald and have about 35,000 miles on them. The other two probably still have about 5,000 miles left. If you don't wheel too hard I would look into an all terrain tire. Probably the bet for you.

My buddy has a set of BFG All Terrains that have 115,000 miles on them and still have a little bit of tread.

Hankook Dynapro MT. Not bad on the wallet, and work really well offroad and on road. I commute 100 miles a day back and forth to school and the tires are holding up alot better then I thought.

Destination M/T's are pretty amaizing, I had them on my tj and could make it through much of the trails and mud in 4x2 and throw it in 4x4 for the real mud pits, but they are amaizing in mud and on the trails, they constantly clean themselves out while slingin mud. But they are not so good in the rain on pavement, I have slid a couple times in the rain with no excessive force on the brakes. They are good in snow, in a big snow storm last year the highway was all backed up people sliding everywhere, I threw it in 4x4 and cuised around them on the side lol it was awesome. Sick tire though, very aggressive appearance too.

How any of you buy or recommend any Firestone product is beyond me. I'll take quality everytime over individuality, especially when you consider equipment like tires that have a huge influence on safety.

Bfgs all terrains or either Mt (km or km2), highest quality you can buy other than michelin or bridgestone. Last a good long time too. Usually, when a lot of people use one certain thing for a long time, there's a reason. Which is why everyone has bfgs. Work good, high quality, comparable pricing. You know what to do!

swampers are not good on the road. Plus the are hard to keep balanced. BFGs are great, hankook has came a long way, summit mud dawgs are also very good.

I have the pro comp mud terrains. They do really well in the mud, not loud at all in my truck. I've only got about 5,000 miles on em so I'm not sure about how they last. I really like mine.

My vote is for BFGs. The A/T are a little cheaper and last longer than the M/T. Since youre young id go for the A/T until you get real serious about wheeling.

I'm going to go in on the MTZs as well, i love them. Never had an issue.

They are siped and i spent my first winter ever in snow driving around with 35x1250 mud terrains and didn't have any issues in 2wd.
