Icon5 Tires Opinion

Well I went to 4 wheel parts, and basicly left there pissed. But I was set on a few choices of tires. So maybe you guys and girls can help me out. What are your opinions on the Bfg's mud-terrains or the Goodyear MTR's

most of the sales people in mainstream companies are by the book. so if it says one thing, thts what they push. because really, we cant do much more than the manufactor says.

but i say neither bfg or goody. toyo mt's

i wont chime in with my opinion on any other tires but for your questions about comparing bfg m/t to goodyear mtr's i can tell you that the mtr's will perform better offroad in a wider variety of terrain. however you can expect them to wear faster than the bfg's so basically it depends on your budget and how much and how hard you go off roading

Just my experience, I just saw mt/r's get BEACHED in some nice fl mud. Don't run the MT/R's in the swamp.

Honeslty, I would try up a super swamper tsl radial or irok. Go different...everyone has bfg's (me including). Or look at the xtreme mud terrain (pro comp)

they don't make general grabbers a/t2 for the size he wants (i believe you said 35's??) for a 15 inch rim I THINK they only come in 31x10.50's. i have them and they are good but i want bfg's now.

I like my MT/Rs and everyone that I know that has had them has liked them too and everyone likes their bfg mud's. So I think they are both good tires and it's just what you want. But a lot of people are getting the MTZs now so you might want to look at those.

Go with a Maxxis Bighorn Mudder! They are very similar to the BFG's and Goodyears but they are a lot more economical and they even wear great. I have 45,000 miles on mine and they are about gone.

I completely understand If i was in FL i would have boggers or something to that effect.

I have wheeled in FL mud a few times I know what it is like. But my MTRs did great in the dunes.... How much sand is in the mud there? btw do you air down?

Boggers you can run at some crazy pressures...like 6-8psi...yes I always try to air down. You want a fat, tall tire for the mud. there is no bottom so you have to try to float.

Pretty much the sand is just like the mud, it's sugar sand, so you just sink down into it...boggers just dig down too deep unless your in 4wd w/ a lot of power, I was thinking about those 37x13 boggers again, just b/c they are badass.....and my truck IS officially paid off now...
