    Tire opinion wanted on BFG mud terrain km's vs. pro comps mud terrain tire. The reason I 'm limiting the choices to these two are simple, I can get either of them to my front door $515. for 35's, so I 'm being a cheap sob....
    The driving type will be mostly DD and some mud but lots of snow and ice in the winter because I live in Minnesota. any experiences are helpful

    My friend and I run DD's very similar to each other. Mine is a '93 F/S Blazer with 33" BFG A/T's. His is a '92 1/2 ton with 33" BFG M/T's. Both work pretty well in mud and snow. My A/T's do way better on ice but his M/T's do a little better in mud and deep drifts. If you're driver is going to see very limited mud time I'd almost recommend an A/T, it won't clean as well in mud but that just means you've gotta spin 'em faster. :grin: But seriously, I've never been anything but impressed with BFG tires. I'd stick with 'em hands down.

    I have never owned the Pro Comp but have owned BFG before the KM's came out. They were a good tier for a dd that was a weekend warrior. It seems like Pro comp and their marketing ploys of the buy 3 get one free and rip you off the rest of the time is BS, I dont like that kind of busness.
