    Keep the 35 size. BFG MT is a good, all-around tire that has respectable road manners, yet works great off-road. I've been running them for the last 7 years and don't plan on trading for a long time.

    If your looking for a good on road tire that will get you pretty much anywhere you want to go offroad, I highly recommend the Goodyear MT/R's. You can get them in either the 35" or 37" size. I recommend the 37's. They handle and ride nicely on the road without a lot of noise, and they perform great offroad too. In my opinion, they give very good traction in the mud, and excellent traction in the rocks. They are also very durable and have a puncture resistant compound that allows them to be very durable in the rocks. This is what I am running right now, and will be my next set of tires too.

    I bought 36" Ground Hawg's for a tire that'll last for years.

    37" MTR's can be very hard to come by sometimes. That is the downfall to the 37" size. 35" are available every day of the week.

    I really like my MTR's. They are a great all around tire. I had BFG AT's and they are a good DD/light trail tire. I had BFG MT's. They are a little more aggressive and are a good tire too. I now have MTR's and love them. They will be staying on my truck for a long time. The only thing I might trade them for is a bigger MTR. They aren't the greatest mud tire but they do ok with some wheel spin but they do very well in the rocks. They aren't terribly load on the road either which is nice.

    BFG Mud Terrains are excellent tires. I have a set of General Grabber MT's that I like, only $120 each at Nebraska Tire. I bought mine on ebay for $440 for a set of four 35's.

    Mtr's are a popular choice for a good all around tire. I have 35" mtr's. What drivetrain are you running. If it is 1/2 ton stick with 35's. If you are 3/4 ton I would say bump to 37's or 38's. I like the Iroks, they are a good rock tire.

    I just baught some 36x13.50x16.5 IROKS for my DD they do make a little noise but not that bad. Man do they look good. I did have BFG AT and they last a long time, but do not do well on rocks and look stupid. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
