    Might suggest using the "search" feature and looking for them. There have been a few million posts about this subject....

    Mud Terrains are better on road but off road super swampers Rule! But ya gotta sacrifice something for something (makes alot of sence lol). It all depends on how much offroading you do.

    I have been considering the same issue for some time now. I think that I may end up with the BFG MT 35x12.5x16.5 tire. The BFG will ride better, and will provide much better wear. The only reason I will buy anything else, is if I decide that I have to have a tire wider than 12.5" across!

    You might want to check out www.4x4review.com click on product reviews and then on tires. They do an in depth review on the Super Swamper Radial vs. BFG Mud Terrain. They give you a good idea of what to expect from each.

    I will be using my truck as a daily driver, and must drive 20 miles / day to work and back. And the 454 is going to put some "EXTRA" wear on the MT's too!!!
