    Get yourself a set of BFG M/T's. You will like them better, they wear better, are quieter, and are a better carcas.

    I had always had BFG muds on my trucks but when ProComp came out with their tires I tried some 33's on my 1/2 ton Ram. They were okay. I would rather have had BFG's again though. The only thing I liked better about the Procomps than the BFG's was that the Procomps have sipes in the center lugs. They didnt seem to help a whole lot in wet weather though.

    i run procomp MTs and totally dig em... not sure what people are talking about them wearing out fast... that hasnt been my experience at all.

    dont really see any advantages in BFGs, procomps seem to be a little bit "stickier" of a compound IMO.

    I have BFG's and my friend runs the Procomps on his jeep. They're pretty much the same performance wise but his has sipes...which are better in da rain...

    "Stickier" compound that doesnt wear out faster /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Must be some high tech NASA designed super rubber or something. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Widowmaker runs pro comps in the 35" flavor and he likes them. They've lasted several hundred burn outs with little tread wear /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
