tire choices... opinions needed!

ok i got my body lift on i have some 15x10 mickey thompsons sitting in the garage that need some tires.(33x12.5x15)

ive been tossing my head back and forth which tire to get so many choices.

i drive alot, mostly highway but do get offroad every once and a while.
i dont care about noise and wear, just a good tire.

anyway here is what ive been thinking.

Trxus STS All-Terains 600$


Maxxis Buckshot Mudders 500$


and i keep hearing BFG All-terains.(i like them but i dont)idk 550$

I know you said that you aren't concerned w/ wear.. but the BFG's will wear (relatively) well. That will save you some big money in the long run.

Running MT tires on the street/highway is a complete waste of money in my opinion. Not that running AT's for strictly street use is much better..

What don't you like about the BFGs? I absolutely love mine, they're perfect for the types of driving I do. You said you didn't like them though, so I chose the STS cuz it looks cool and Trxus makes some badass tires.

I voted Maxxis. Kickass tire, but suckass in sand. I LOVE my BFG A/T's but I like the mudder look so I went with them and the Trxus look like they are for show...

i think trxus are ugly *** tires that arent going to wear that well. I say none to the above and if you are even considering a good of road tire go wth a goodyear MT/R. good in mud sand and especially rock.



but everynoe knew I would say that...

great tire if you have the $ to blow every year and half to get new tires...they wear to fast.

Zach mudders in the snow we have up here SUCKS ***** beleave me there has to be like 7" minimum before they preform good. the BFG A/T will be your best bang for the buck on millage and also you will LOVE them in the winter there the ****. my little 2wd i can hop around everywhere with them no problem. my cooper mudders was hell when it snowed....

i vote Cooper.. the ST or the SST. They are great. I've had a great experience with them (no on my truck) and they're pretty good offroading. COOPER!

How about the Goodyear Wrangler MT?, not the mt/r. You can find them in some places, they look mean, they go on military Hummers, must be great. One guy at my firehall has em on his s-10, they look awesome and like they would work well on road and off, never asked him about them though.
