    I have a friend who has the ProComp MTs in the 33 12.5 15 size. He liked them - they are a lot like BFG MTs and Mud Kings, same basic tread design/tire design. Solid.

    Yes i have the Xterrains and i will say so far they are the best tires Ive rolled on. I ran some Mud tires for a while and Allterrains but so far the Xterrains have out done both of them. the X has the tread wear down of an allt, and better traction then a Mud, Plus they look pretty cool. I have friends with the Procomp Mud and they are a damn good tire too so which ever you go with of the Procomps they will kick a**. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif www.zombieoffroading.8m.net

    i run 35x12.5x15 procomp mts right now. IMO they are great tires. Very much like a BFG mud. Ive never had BFGs, but just from observation it seems like the procomps are a little softer/stickier (a plus for rocks, prolly not for mud) and have sidewalls that prolly arent as tough as BFGs though they may be slightly more flexible.

    right now if I had to get another set of 35s, I'd either get procomps again or MTRs.

    I have the 33x12.5/15 M/T's and they are great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I'd get them again. I do think they look small with my 4" lift though. There are lots of pics of the truck on my website if you want to take a look.

    as far as "looking small" i remember in a tire test in fourwheeler... they said the actual height on the 35" tire they had was 34.6". Not bad compared to some manufacturers where a 35 is really a 33. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    with respect to wear, its hard for me to say, I havent put many miles on my rig lately and my odometer is fubared so... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif i dunno. I guess one way to compare would be to look in my webshots album... look at the "my jimmy" album compared to the newest buildup pics... same tires.

    They wear pretty nice. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I am real pleased with the ride quality also. I drive about 30 miles a day on my 35's. Bought them in NOV and they still look brand new except for the wifes stunt. She tried to pull a tree stump in 2wd while I was at work. She filled the neighborhood full of tire smoke! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    When the UPS man dropped my 35s off, he said he had a set of 33s on a 1 ton with 30K miles on them and you could barely tell they had any wear. I love my MTs. They ride better than some all terrains I've had. They are also quiet on the highway. I have had them in mud this winter with no complaints. They do dig down pretty quick and you have to spin them to clean the mud/clay out, but they grip! Balance easy and are true. Definately recomend them!
