    I run BFG A/T's. Not the best offroad (good trail/mild rock), but very good on the highway.

    second that. Had em on my blazer for about a year and a half and they have worn pretty good--still have between 1/2 to 3/4 tread left. I Use them for weekend wheeling trips and DD. They're a little noisy going down the highway but nothing like a swamper.

    bfg a/t are said to be bad in the rain since they dont really have channels for the water to excape to.

    I never had any bfg mud tires. But i can say i did not like the way a bfg at is at all. It is good on the road but that is it and seemed to wear fast compared to other mud tires i've had.

    Might check out the Goodyear MTR's.I have 37's now and really like them.They are very quiet on the street compared to quite a few others and work very well everywhere except the thickest,stickiest mud.Even then they are okay,they just don't clean out as well as Swampers.I'm going up to 40's when spring arrives.Check 'em out.

    where in so cal? Get radial tires for a truck you drive alot on street, and depending on gearing and what you do offroad, you could go smaller and may like the advantages such as punchier throttle responce due to lower gears.

    Ok I know of some tires not to get! my blazer came with tires called conti-tracks(they look like BFG m/ts). They were new when I got the blazer. I have put about 4500 miles on the blazer since march the tires are now less than half tread depth, And talk about CHUNKING! I havnt even done any major offroading and I am missing some big ol chunks from some of the lugs! One thing for them they do get pretty good traction. I think I might be better of with super swampers :doah:

    1. OK, slow down there son....Take a few extra momments to enter the periods (.) and commas (,) here and there where they need to be. It makes reading someone's post understandable and easier to respond to with the correct info. Don't forget good grammer either.

    2. BFG's are out, if you have 40" tires than you probably want tires that are the same size to replace them. Last time I checked, BFG doesn't make a 40" tires in anything but there rock crawler tire, which is out of the question on road.

    3. You probably have a set of Denman Gumbo Mudders. have a look at this because there aren't many options from any other tire manufactures with a size that large.

    4. There is no such thing as a 12b front axle, you have a 12B rear and a D44 up front, stock anyway.

    5. Blazers and Jimmy's are the same thing, just a different grille.

    6. Yes you can get a roll bar for your truck, there are tons of options.

    BFG's are good tires, but If you want to keep the look and ofroad ability that the truck has now, look at Super Swamper SSR's, Parnelli Jones Dirt Grips, or maybe even some of the new Pit Bull tires. You can get any of these in 38" sizes and they are radials. They will be your best compromise between and offroad tire with street manners. Also, Super Swamper Iroks have a 41" Radial you could check out.
