    BFG's M/T's are a better D/D tire than any Swamper, 40,000-60,000 mile wear on BFG's compared to 10,000-15,000 mile wear on Swampers! But hey it's your money! I've run both. I am runnin TSL/SX's now cause I just don't care about milage anymore just want off-road traction!

    Swamper LTB's have worse tread wear than regular swampers, I have heard. I have a friend that works at 4WP and he told me that they were designed as a cheap replacment for bias ply swampers and have a softer tread compund. None of his customers have been happy with them.

    I put a set on a chevy 1/2 ton just last week for a customer that was trying to save money.
    I test drove it and wanted to puke by the time i got back and i just went around the block.
    The customer had pretty much the same impression.
    they were more out of round than any other tir that i've driven, including 44 boggers. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    i guess this is why the ltb's are so cheap.i had the bfg a/t's and they didnt last very long at all.maybe 12000.ive had the ones i have on now i got from wallmart they are super sport from kelly tire(not sure exactly brand but ive been told that kelly makes them)and they have lasted almost 20000.i would buy some more of these but i think they are only sold in cali.out here in PA the biggest ive found is 265x75 r16.any one had the buckshots?they are almost as cheap but like i said i gotta have good tread wear.

    Buckshots aren't too great either. You get what you pay for.

    LTB look like a odd size tire to me but I dont much abouthen to me though a 34-10.50 is gonna look skinny but mabe thats what you want.

    What do you guys think of good year mt'rs & procomp x-terains compared to other tires
