    bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    which ones are the better for my aplication. most mud and light trails and lots of hitting stuff(like barrals and other things that my city puts in my way) so i can get the mt/r's for 150 and the bfg km's for 154.....both are 35 12.5 15r

    A friend of mine loves his MTR's. I think there tread looks more agressive too. Just make sure you stay a way from the ProComps. Even with the buy 3 get one free it's not worth it, you'll end up buying another one or two after you blow the sidewall.

    MT/R's placed 3rd in 4WOR's mud tire test and the rock guys all seem to be running them...Four Wheeler liked them too in thier test in this months issue.

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    I have both. MTRs on the Jimmy BFGs on the burb. Go with MTRs. I am getting ready to put the MTRs on the burb and put swamper on the Jimmy. The MTRs are alot stronger tires and work awsome in the mud. Yes we do get mud here every once in a while.

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    Last time I looked it up the MTRs were small for their listed size. I would check to see if that is still the case and adjust the size you buy accordingly. I know three people who have run them but two were on Jeeps. They work well in the SE.
    I have the BFGs and like them. They are a good tire for a daily driver/trail truck, which is what mine was when I bought tires. They last on the street and hold up being spun on wet rocks to get them dry.

    Anyone know who sells the 37x12,50R15's? Never seen that size before. I'd beintereseted in what they measure out at.

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    The 37x12.50r15 ar ethe ones the rockcrawling guys use. The bad part is they are 550 a tire. My 35 MTRs are 34" While my BFGs are 33 and 1/4.

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    Ahhh... so those are the "Bentover" model of MTR's that I heard about [​IMG]. No thanks... I guess it is still SSR or TSL radials... doh!

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    The reason I got my MTRs is because I got a warranty with them so if I destroy them I get new ones free. Also good luck with SSRs since they like to blow out at high speeds or down gravel roads.

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    You didn't actually buy the 37's at 5 hundo plus a piece did ya? I would love to try out the 35's. They look sweet and are priced great... the 37's... no way could I afford them.

    Yeah the SSR's suck... maybe they will get them sorted out in the next few months. . I was hoping that the 37's were immune to the problem but saw Chris from All Pro Offroad had a blow out w/ his 37's [​IMG].

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    I did not buy the 37s because of the cost I went with the 35s and love them. I had the 31" MTRs before and they held up to everything I threw at them so I went and bougth the 35" MTRs. Now I will be going bigger so I am going with the 38.5" SXs.

    Re: bfg\'s or mtr\'s

    I love my MTRs!
    Quiet on the road.
    Hook up HARD in the dirt.
    Balanced with minimal weight.

    Does seem to be a soft compound - wondering what kind of mileage I'll get.
