    iroks are a lot more agressive than the bfg mts, but just go out and wheel, cus that kind of trash talk is stupid. there are too many factors as to what rig performs better, including the drivers skill.

    BFG's are gay

    I have bfg's on my 87 and i wish i had two sets of them

    I loved my BFGs, but they're nothing compared to swampers.

    IROKs are probably the best tires Interco has ever made. The void ratio of a bogger, with the lateral traction of a TSL, and the price tag of a BFG.

    in the mud? Not my area of specialty, but...

    IROK is so much more aggressive than a BFG- the BFG MT's are "Pretty good"

    But I liked the old uniroyal MT's better.

    A full tred depth MT might do pretty well, but his 99 *may* do better, not due to to anything else other than the fact that I dont think he has a SFA with the drag.

    the MT pattern is really a blend of streetability and offroadability.

    Tell your friend that he can take all 4 of his BFG's and slowly shove them up his behind.....

    His dodge may be able out perform you in the mud from the longer wheel base and more powerfull engine. IF you hit deep mud I bet you will go where he gets stuck.

    Your friend sounds like an idiot. :D

    Also, how big/wide are these tires? That can make a difference too.

    Hees got 35x12x15 on a 10in rim

    Ive got 36x13.5x15 on a 10 in rim

    Right now hees putting his lift on and he clams he can "out wheel me" when he gets everything put togeather.

    He seems to think that a narrower tire in mud will sink faster to go to the bottom and find traction. Lol

    He's right, if the mud is 3" deep.

    It depends on the texture and thickness of the mud. In thick, heavy mud a wide tire is best. With the 2 of you it doesn't matter anyway....your tire isn't hardly any wider than his. :screwy:

    Once again you don't have a clue what you're talking about. Despite the size on the sidewall, that IROK is QUITE wide. The 14.50 wide 39.5" IROKs, aired down, are nearly as wide as my 16" wide TSLs.

    If ya had 8" wheels you could air down to 10 PSI and definitely have no worries. :)

    Curious, how tall do you tires actually measure? I would love to go with the IROKs, but I'm afraid they're too tall.

    Oh yeah, so my vote would be that your buddy his smokin' something he needs to share.;)

    Every time I think about giving Tim the benefit of the doubt and possibly ordering something from him, I read something like this.....



    Maybe it's just me, but I don't see Stephen Watson making any comments like this. I don't see any other vendor making comments like that. Seems like somebody needs to take a few classes on proper business etiquete. I dunno. Just a suggestion tho. I do know that regardless of how good his prices might be, I will never order anything from him solely on the atitude he displays here on ck5.

    My 2 cents.... Like it or not, I don't care....

    Yep, Timmy boy is just an angry, immature little boy(no really, he is little) and one day he might grow past 3 feet tall and learn how not to be a such a buttmunch. :grin: :p:

    BTW, I wasn't impressed with his prices at all...I got my billet grille, billet bumper inserts, and intenna for a lot less than what he quoted me.


    And Timmy,
    Big words from a little man like always but the 36x13.50x15 IROK is only 1.2" wider than the tread on a 35x12.50x15 BFG M/T. The difference in tread width between the two tires will make hardly any difference, it's the much more aggressive IROK tread that will out perform the BFG....not it's 1.2" of extra tread.

    Have a truely wonderfull evening. :)

    I just measured them and they are 14.5-15 in wide and about 35.5 in tall.

    Ok, I have had experience wheeling both tires, the BFG MT's and the IROK's on the same truck, the IROK's work about 100 million times better off road and in the mucky stuff, but they semisuck ass on the street. I will almost gaurantee your truck will out wheel his Dodge.
