    I have the same tires (size and everything)...I love mine...They are a HUGE improvement over the old 33" BFG AT's...The handle really well on the street and in the rain and snow...I have only had mine offroad one and it was a mixture of dry, loose gravel and rocks...but the did really well...Even though they only have a 2-ply sidewall, they are THICK layers...I was impressed out how 'solid' the tire was before I had them mounted...My only complaint is that they are directional and if you get if you have a spare, you may end up haveing the spare facing backwards if you ever need to use it...

    Mine are almost identical to my MT baja. I have been more then pleased with my X-terrain, low noise on pavement, good wear, BUT they are HORRIBLE in the sand unless you want to dig to china. They are great in our clay mud though ;-)

    bozowise have you tried turning them around in the sand. Put the right side on the left etc. The look like they'd work like paddles backwords.

    I think they are shorter than advertised, my friend has 33" tires that actually are about 31" tall. Very aggressive tire...

    I have a set of the 33" X-Terrains and they are 33" tall. I have nothing bad to say other then you can hear them hum around 40 to 45mph. Slower or faster, they are very quite. I have drove in deap mud and 8 to 10"s of snow with no problems. ( Well I had a hard time breaking traction when trying to do donuts in the snow.) They get great traction in the rain and wet pavements. I have put about 8,000 miles on mine and they still look like new.

    The only thing I'd be concerned with a ProComp tire is wear. My procomp MT's didn't last near as long as my BFG muds.

    They were a BFG's equal as far as traction, and quieter, but wore quickly. My 2 cents.

    If I'm not mistaken the x-terrains have a 30,000 or 50,000 mi warrenty.

    I know the AT's have a 50,000 mile warrenty, but I haven't heard anything about the X-Terrains. Anyone else know?

    I got a 40,000 warranty but I lost the paper, the sales manager wrote 40,000 mile warranty on it, if I cant find it I assure you guys I'm gonna be screwed.
