I would get mickey thompson classic II's with BFG mud terrains. The all terrains tread pattern looks like crap.

I have a connection to get axis regulators at a good price... not sure exactly how much just yet. They are a 15x7.5 and can come in either silver or blue beadlock

the 10.5 means the width of the tire.. it will fit your sport fine.. hell you can run 32x11.5x15 with no issues.. get some 15x8...

like Shane said looking for alloy or steelies? black steelies run about $50 a rim... cheap and fast

The 10.5 is the width of the tire. I have Mickey Thompson Classic IIs with those BFG All Terrains in 32x11.50x15 and I love them! They look great and perform amazing onroad and off. They can last 40k miles if you take care of them.

I agree, the tread pattern isn't as aggressive as the mud terrain but its a lot better then stock.

I know, thats a 40k minimum. If you take good care of them they can last forever.

Mud terrains are not good in the snow, so if that is one of your traction interests, A/T tires would be better...

31x10.50R15

31 = tire height in inches

10.50 = tread width in inches

R = Radial

15 = Rim/Wheel diameter in inches.



Steel or Alloy?

Steel: Look at about $200-250 a set.

Alloy: Look at about $400 a set.

Jus throwing something out there.

I have always gotten BFG ATs on my turcks and theya re a great tires, but this time I did some research and found that the Dunlop Radial Rover RVXTs were as highly reviewed and about 1/3 cheaper where I live. Had them a week and have been through wet/icy/snowy roads and think they are every bit as good. Maybe better. Haven't been offroad yet--need to wait until spring...
Here's a pic of mine showing tread pattern, blackwall out, and stock size.

^^^The only thing that kept me from buying those tires is the fact that the center wears out faster than the rest of the tire, no matter what air pressure you run them at...
