    I'm building my Blazer for some major off roading. I really enjoy exploring the forest looking for old gold mines and ghost towns. These are small mountins I'll be out in. The Blazer is also my daily driver. What tires would ya'all recomened ????

    A good quality radial mud tire would be fine if you are wanting to run 35's or less. Cooper STT's, Maxxis Buckshot Mudders, General Grabber MT's, Dick Cepek MT's, etc.

    BFG MT's are also good, but you pay a lot for that 3rd ply of sidewall you may never need./forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I love the look of the swamper "boggers" but don't know how well they'd do in the woods, or on the streets, it's for my daily driver.

    boggers are awesome in any terrain be it mud or trail riding. Sand they are good if you have enough motor to spin them otherwise they like to dig. On the street mine ride good, they wear fast and like to grab grooves in the road.

    Just get some BFG mud terains or some Mud Kings they wear really well on the road and give good traction off. Plus there alot cheaper then Swampers and you wont need to replace them as soon.

    i wouldnt recommend the bias ply tsls for daily use, go for the radials.
    i run em and really like em, but i also tend to make other people drive me around when its raining hard, they tend to slip and slide for me, my old bfg muds did the same once i put a new engine in, but they were getting pretty bald.
