    Time for new tires and I cant make up my mind .I am primarily in mud and sand when off road but would like something that would work good at Uwharrie also. I will be buying 33x12.50/15's .I also drive a good bit on the highway also but noise isnt a concern for me.Whats your suggestions?

    BFG MTs. I just picked up a set the other day and I love em. I can't wait to get in the dirt and try em out. Most of the URE regulars I've wheeled with up there swear by em.

    BFG MT's are a good all around tire.

    Wherever it gets moved, MT/R's don't clean worth a **** and M/T's sidewalls are in need of help for serious wheeling. MT/R's aren't that loud on the highway and do fantastic in the rocks. M/T's are a better highway tire and clean better.

    I wheel with one guy that runs MT/R's and two that run M/T's, don't know jack about your other two options.

    I'm still a big fan of the Denman Ground Hawg. In mud the Bogger beats the Ground Hawg, just barely, but from what everybody has told me, the boggers don't last for sh_t if you drive on the pavement alot. The Ground Hawg wears like iron, so that's something too think about.

    sorry for helpin the tech in the lounge but I dont like bfgs at all. One of mine got a 8 inch cut in the sidewall from a piece of smooth metal layin in my yard. my fault for not payin enough attention to where I was backin up but the tires should be able to take more abuse than that.:mad:

    I wouldn't give you a plug nickle for BFG's. Not because of the tire itself. I had a set on another rig I had, they wore decent (comparable to the Goodyears) but had a blow-out with one around the 500-600 mile worth of wear. BFG would NOT replace it. Fought with them for months on it and they still wouldn't replace it. So I ended up mailing all 4 tires back to them COD. Never heard from them again and will never own another set.

    IMHO You are best off getting some 22" Kumos and a set of spinners.
    BTW
    Why is there no" I'm nekid" option? Not having a Nekid option is a huge No No in the lounge.
    Where is a Mod when you need one:D
