I have the procomp mts right now and im not sure if im gonna get them again becuase they seem to chunk alot(I have 2wd with locker so i have to spin to get up the trail). Will the x terrains do the same? And what tires wont do this?

Thx

on you on rocks? anything with a good griping tread will chunk on rough stuff. why? because the tires the grip the best, are softer compunds, and dont like hard rough sharp terrains. thats why super swampers are not intended for the street per-say. and then people compain because they only last 20k miles.

look into m/t mtz's. another nice tire to consider. the xtreme a/ts are pretty nice, but they come pricey. they have the most amount of voids for a a/t, which put it close to a m/t.

Ok well on that note i thibk im either gonna get the extreme allterains or the mickey thompson baja a/t. Anyone have anything to say about these 2? And im not sure if they would look good so a pic of them on a ranger would be awsome!

Do you have a fetish with Pro-Comp. There M/T's are not bad but the X terrains suck royal monkey nuts. Go with some Cooper's or Goodyear MT/R's!!
