Which tires should i get??????

I have a 2004 Ranger edge 2wheel drive getting ready to lift it and going to need new tires.I use to have a 99 ranger and had 33' BFG All terrains on it liked them alot.

I will be driving more highway miles then off road miles.Therefore, I will need tires that are not going to wear on me so fast by being on the road so much...I liked the BFG Allterrains but just thought I would ask everyones opinions...Thx!!

If you had good performance with the BFG A/T's then I'd say stick with them.

However, some other options are Pathfinder A/T's (knock off BFG A/T) Bridgestone Revos, and now I'm having a major brainfart! can't remember the other one I was going to mention! BAH!!! -Mike-

No new pictures yet, I will take a couple tomorrow.

As for on road manners I have no complaints so far very smooth and great wet weather traction. I only have about 500 miles on them right now but if I remember correctly they are rated a 40,000 mile tire. My dad runs them on his 79 f-150 and has about 5,000 miles on them and they still look brand new(he doesn't drive it much if at all). The reason I like them better then the BFG A/T's is that they have larger voids between the lugs so they should clean out better then the BFG's. here is a picture of the Bfg's and the MTX's you can see that the MTX has a more aggressive tread pattern.
