    I am pretty well set on what tires i would like to get fro my daily driver. It is between the baja claw radials and the bfg mud terrains. Iether way, I would get the 35x12.50's. Mostly i just need to know peopls opinions of both, and see how long they last(still offroadable)with frequent rotations. Also pics would be helpfull of 73-91 trucks with 4-6" lift and these tires. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    You really have to ask yourself witch tire best fits your needs. I went with the Denman Radial Ground Hawgs II's because they wear like iron (Last along time with on pavement use), plus have a very aggressive tread pattern. Also, I wanted 36's. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Image

    I went from 35" BFG's to 38" TSL's on my Daily Driver K5... needless to say.. I'm going back to 35" BFG's for street use, and keeping the 38's for wheeling trips.

    Did the same on my truck although its not my DD, I'm getting another set of 35" BFGs as well. TSLs just don't like the road like BFGs do.

    Between those two, definately the BFG's. You might also consider the Goodyear MT/R's too! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
