    i bought a set of regul mud terrain about 120 each and i have about 7k miles on them and are wearing well and they do not roar on the road. plus they have a 40k warranty. would buy same again

    It needs a bigger motor.
    what's in it now?

    Hey, I'm currently looking for the same thing. I've called A LOT of different places looking for the same size you are. The best deal I've found is at Discount Wheel and Tire. They have 33/12.5/15's for $497.50 balanced, installed, and out the door. I still can't make up my mind though. I came here for help. I really like the Super Swampers (TSL -- $560), but I will be on road alot, so I'm not sure if that's the best tire for me. I'm also thinking about a set of Courser MT's ($699) and BFG's($715). I'm new to wheeling. I have 235 highway treads on now. I just got through adding an Edelbrock man. and carb. and headers (1978 400c.i.). Now, I'm looking at tires. I hacked up my fenders today (like on the link here). I have no lift yet. :(

    FWPW has the Pro Comp 33x12.5 buy 3 get the 4 free
    I did that 1 year ago and got the whole sheband for 400 out the door mounted and balanced, tires look good and I haven't had any problems with them yet, seem to work well in the mud and rocks both.

    Still a very pissed-off

    The BFG's are great. A little pricey but worth it. I saw a set of Procomp Mudders today and they didn't look like a bad tire. Personally I love the BFG's and those are going to be the only things on my truck.

    I just ordered a set of 5 (gotta have a spare) 33/12.5-15 General Grabber MT from Tires Plus. They'll cost me about $640 out the door including the lifetime balance and rotate and road hazzard warranty. So far I have not heard anything bad about them other than they're not great to tow a heavy trailer with.

    The Futura MT only goes up to 31" I think. The AT goes to 33".

    MultiMile Wild Country RVT has been a good tire for me. I think they are made by General.

    The Grabbers are good too.

    For price, you sure can't beat the Uniroyals though. Super cheap!

    Still Poundin' "pavment" after all these years!!! [​IMG]
