    i wish you lived closer. my buddy just bought brand new ones, and hes going down to 33's because of his gearing. problably would have been cheaper. good luck

    If you run bfg AT's and you see mud..... stay away unless you want to get stuck.

    They arent the worst tire for the mud out there. Not the best either. Nuthin can beat a swamper but i can afford to put them on it and its my DD.

    the bfg's are basically slicks in the mud because the treads are too small and don't clean but thats why they aren't a mud tire. I don't see why you would go a/t and be limited to the dry stuff instead of going tsl and get the best of both worlds.... or even mud terrain bfgs

    your choice

    I have mudders right now. I like them but i dont wheel a whole lot. ive been places with ats that i didnt think i could make it to. I dont really like playing in deep mud either. Just my thing. Also if you read above it a DD and i dont want swampers. Dont get a flame started im just trying to get pics.

    I wouldn't say that. Depends on what you're doing, and what moddle of Swampers. Personally, I'd take Ground Hawg's over Swampers any day. But that just my personal choice.

    I was just stating that. I know you are into hawgs. I think they look awsome. But opinions are like assholes everyone has one and they all stink.

    i would. IMO its not the best of both worlds, its a huge compromise on the street. nothing rides like a BFG A/T on pavement, its the "tsl" of the street:D
    every tire is a compromise. if you spend the majority of your time on road, then a mud tire isnt the best option. if there isnt a bunch of mud in your area , then an A/T isnt the best option. i get better traction in dry dirt with the bfg a/t than i do with a tsl. better footprint.more rubber to grab rocks. tsl's dig really easy too.on ice tsl's are downright scary.my BFG's are magical on ice covered roads. you can get 50k+miles out of a BFG, how many can u get out of a tsl? 20kmax?
    you can go thru shallow mud pits with an A/t. just need to keep momentum and wheelspeed. my friend has suprised the hell outta me getting thru alot of hairy section at the local mud pit, an he had 32" half bald a/t's. he couldnt stop tho, but made it thru.

    Here is the thing i can get these bfgs at a hell of a price. Thas what is helpin. I dont want swampers. How many times do i need to say that. I will buy me a trail rig and put swampers on it but not on my dd. I see maybe 10 to 20% of my time offroad. That is at most. I may go 2-3 times a month.
