    don't know about wear but they look good and perform about as well as a mud terrain so my friend who had a set says. He liked them much better than his BFG ATs.

    I had a set of 33's on a k10 with a 6.2. not sure if the weight of the deisel or the fact that they were on factory wheels was the cause but they did not wear well. They worked just as good offroad as BFG AT in my opinion. I know others who have had great success with them. Might be a good deal for you if they are cheap /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    They are great off road, but ride really rough and as I stated before, they wear fast.
    Now if you are looking for cheap I would recommend new Kumhos from tirerack.com
    Check them out.

    I put a set of 35x12.50-16.5s on my '83 crew cab diesel. Handled great, quiet, never had a chance to use them offroad. But here is the downside now, I found out they quit making them, at least in the 16.5 size. So you wouldn't be able to find them if you blow one, something to consider. I think I paid about $125/tire new from discount for them. Had real good luck with the General TR series on my tow rigs(235/85s).

    Ron, Check out those kumhos that imiceman44 is talking about on tirerack. They are pretty sweet. they have good ratings and are like $115 for 35's.

    And I tried them, they wear very good.
    We had them on a hunting blazer for 2 years hi speed chasing hares in rough terrain rocky dirt type of terrain.
    They didn't puncture and the tread took 2 years to get to 50%
