Which tires?

I may be buying tires soon and was wondering which should I go with? I know most people here are biased to the BFGs. Im hoping someone has tried the others and have some info to share. Thanks :)

p.s I wanna stick with 30s cuz I had 31s on the truck when I rolled it so kinda scared still.... :( Budget is another issue cant go too expensive...

Super Sport HT 30X9.50R15L from Walmart @ $113.26 + $9.76 intallation & road hazard per tire


or BF Goodrich® T/A KO - 30X9.50R15 from Sam's Club @ $111.17


or Dunlop Radial Mud Rover 30X9.50R15LT from Sam's Club @ $100.84


Yokohama Geolandar A/T+II 30X9.5SR15 from TiresPlus @ $91.00 + $11.99 installation per tire

I got a set of BFG's a few months ago and I love them, Awesome traction, not very loud at all, all in al a great tire. I haven't had a chance to take them through the mud yet or even drive in the rain, but there day will come. Driving off-road like on trails they are great!

Depends on what you want the tires for? If you want a good all around, long lasting tire, get a BFG A/t.

I have had experience in BFG All Terrains and Buckshot Mudders. You may wanna look into them as well becuase they are cheap.

you may also want to look into firestone destination MT's, they have great traction on any terrain and they are a really quiet tire, plus they aren't too badly priced

What are your intentions? I guess these are for the TJ. You can't go wrong with the BFG A/T's. Esp. since you have the Wrangler and not the RWD Ranger. If it were the Ranger, I'd say go M/Ts. But with the 4x4 you can use a less aggressive tread and still get places and get better mileage (both in terms of longevity and mpg), less noise and better street (esp. wet traction).

Yeah they are for the TJ. I go trail riding mostly, the only mud ive been in was at rancho. I'm just looking for an aggressive looking tire that wont leave me stuck off-road. Thanks for all the replies.

p.s the Yokos are looking good too

personally i would suggest the mickey thompson baja claw tires are amazing for any sort of terrain. we used them in mud and liked them better then the swampers and boggers, and they were decent on the road

Please don't buy a foreign made tire so save a few dollars. Is that really who you are?

BFG's or Dunlops are probably great choices -- but the Dunlops won't be good in the rain.

Are those prices all apples-to-apples? Do they all include (as I think the Walmart price does -- don't remember) mounting and balancing? I've seen people buy on TIRE price and then end up finding out with installation it's more than they bargained for. I've also seen folks quote internet prices compared to the local tire shop -- then find out the internet tires are MORE expensive with shipping and installation.

Hey John the prices are per tire + installation prices on some of them.


I edited the first post again....

Guess no one has had any experience with the super sports? Is looking like BFGs :P

Although I'm no fan of the BFG's in the muddy stuff I end up in so much, I will tell you from observation of others running them that they are veratile, tough, and long wearing. If you don't need a "serious" mucky-stuff tire, it's hard to go far wrong with them.
