Icon5 A/T tire help

Im getting new tires soon and i want some input on which all terrain tires you think are the best. they are going to be 32x11.5 and will be driven mostly on the highway but they also need to perform well while wheelin
Im thinkin either the bfg A/T Pro comp A/t or the mickey thompson baja ATZ I want to hear from those of you who have used these tires
If i get the pro comps i can get these http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/pts/582289341.html
tell me what you think
thanks Jordan

i like my pro comps on the street. have never lost traction in the rain. the treadwear is awesome on them as long as u keep the pressure good on them and rotate them. have over 15k on them and only lost 1/32 of tread. as far as off road they suck. they dont clean out verry well.

I personally don't like the way the Procomps tread looks and I've heard bad things about Procomp tires in general. That being said I LOVE my BFG ATs, there great for what I need. I haven't heard any thing about the ATZs so I don't know how those are, but it looks like the BFG have bigger tread sipping.

I vote for the BFG's It is the only tire I have ever owned a second set of. I love them, no complaints for what they are. Don't do suoer in the mud, but they aren't meant to. They do real well in the rain and are overall just a great tire.

My Nittos performed decent offroad but they were a softer compound and wore pretty fast on the road

im running pep boys dakota futura's. they have a similar tread pattern to the bfg a/t t/a and are a whole lot cheaper. have good wear, good handling and are super in the snow. not bad in the dirt but like most a/t's they dont self-clean like a mud-designed tire.Name:  93ranger013.jpg

So for aesthetics, and practicality like how fast they wear, BFGs A/Ts are the best I've been told, but someone told me about spektors A/Ts. Are these any good?

i got the grabber at2's too... and i havent rotated them in like 7 months.... they have like, 8,000 miles on this rotation, and they still look brand new. and in the snow and ice thier fantastic. Not the greastest in mud, but, push the lil skinny pedal a lil more and you shouldnt have a prob.... LOL

Edit: Oh ya, and I paid $410 for 265/70/16 on tire racked shipped, and then $60 to mount and balance

vs $800 with the BFG's So far i love my at2's. Prob is, u cant buy em local.

I don't know where you got your prices from but I hope those drive for you. My BFGs are 140 each, worth every penny. I just drove thru 8" of snow for the last 30 min no problems at all. Gotta love em

Pro Comp Xtreme A/Ts are a nice looking tire, most everyone over on f150online.com likes them.
