    what do you guys think of the pro-comp mud terrains? are they any good? i know they're better than the bfg muds. but how do you guys rate them.

    From what I've heard, the ProComp tires suck big time. A few guys around here have tried them, and didn't give them very high marks. I personally prefer Goodrich, mostly because I know that they'll survive just about everything.

    If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all[​IMG]

    I've talked to others who agree pro comp doesn't quite do it. I run BFGs and have only been temporarily inconvenienced for short periods of time. But when I can swing it I would to get the Wrangler MT/Rs. I've only heard good things about them.

    I have had great luck with bfg mt's. They seem to last a long time even on vehicles that see a lot of highway miles. Just my thoughts.

    I've run procomps for 2 years and they do awsome on the rocks, ok in the mud, suck in the snow, and ok in soft dirt.

    Muddysub, glad to hear you like this site!!! Also glad you didn't just 'blow steam and left CK5' because of the Sub post problem. [​IMG] You are learning fast and doing the right thing posting on this forum. BTW, I don't have a Blazer either! I have regular cab K30's!!! Shows how much can be interchanged between the trucks, Subs, and Blazers!!! I have two K30 trucks and nobody on this site complains at all!!! I have never complained about the 'truck forum' either. I learned the valuable info is right here in the 'main forum'!! [​IMG] Since you already apologized about your recent posts, and not too many people are 'man' enough to admit their mistakes, you are cool in my book! [​IMG]

    I have Pro Comp Mt's and have had no real problems w/ them. They are still pretty new, but I'm surprised at how quiet they are... will see if they roar louder as they age like the rest of the MT's... most likely yes.

    I have the procomps also. I only have about 6,000 miles on them. I love them, They do great in the mud. And handle good on the pavement. I can't say anything about the snow. I live in CA. I don't get to see the white stuff very often........Dan

    Check out the Peterson's tire test. I don't know how the BFGs spanked the Pro-Comps so bad in the test given they're the same tread pattern, but they did. I'm VERY impressed with my BFGs. I've got 35x12.50R15 Mud Terrains.

    BFG has had years of testing and experience under some really extreme conditions - A good number of Baja 1000's were won on Mud Terrains before the Baja T/A's came out, as well as just about every other desert race. ProComps are fairly new, and haven't had much time to put into development.

    I saw that Petersons tire test too. I couldn't believe the new Goodyear M T s rated right up there with Super Swampers. Petersons also said a lot of good things abut them. I guess Goodyear has finally got their act togeather with off road tires. The pro comps were rated near the bottom of the 10 tires they picked out to test.
    But between BFG and Pro comp I would take the BFG. Just because I have had very good luck with them and they last quite a while.

    I was at a Tire shop putting on my Procomps when a guy pulled up in beat to hell 70's chevy pickup. and it had procomps on it. He said he had 36,000 miles on them. They looked like they had at least 50% tread left on them and had really even where. He was just there to have them rotated. He said he loved them in the mud too.......Dan

    I agree with you Pugsley on the BFG's you just have to lookout for the tree branches that are headed at the sidewall

    I tore the sidewall out of a Mud Terrain a while back - but it wasn't a tree. I was hooking it through a dry wash and found one of those barbed wire fence "T" posts buried in the sand with my sidewall - Thankfully I had a spare with me that day, since we were the better part of 100 miles from anywhere.
