    Not sure as to what 35x12.50x15 to get.... so lets poll
    I will be wheelin in on some local trails, some local farms,driving alot in the snow (upstate ny), and driving back and forth to school

    I have ordered my shackle flip, and will be ordering springs, and tires and other goodies for my truck, but just need some first hand advice (on road noise, wear, etc.)

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I have 33 BFG Mud Terrains and will be goin to a 35 in the summer. They do great on the road as far as I can tell so far-only bout 10k miles on em. There good in the mud too. The only thing I would be worried about is the winter driving. We dont have much snow down here in VA but they did alright for me. Ive heard others say a MT tire isnt good on the ice. Others will chime in on that Im sure.

    I selected "Other" /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I would put in a vote for the Goodyear MT/R's. I just got a set and love them so far! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have to second the Goodyear MT/R's. Been looking into finally getting some bigger tires, and w/ the road duty my truck sees, along w/ the different types of terrain I run (all, but more rocks if I can get my butt back to Dis.) MT/R's seem to be the hands down winner. This is after considering TSL radials, BFG's, Pro Comps, Dunlops, and every other tire under the Sun. I am intrigued (sp?) at the Nitto Mud Grappler, but it hasn't been released yet, so it may be a worthwhile option. My 2 pennies.

    As far as that goes, no tire is good on ICE unless it's studded

    i selected other as well, but not for MT/R's. have you looked at the General grabber MT's? had them on the toy, loved them. they were actually round too.

    I voted for the interco tire because I'm curious how they wear. I would probably get the 35x12.50 SSR. oh and I love beer too! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i agree with TonyP. BFG A/T are great unless you do alot of mud, I've got em and love em. plus they are severe weather rated.

    I'll definitely 3rd that one. BFG A/T. Great in the snow and for the road. Not so good off road...but save your money for some hardcore tires if you want to do a lot of offroading and you can have the best of both!!

    Goodyear MTRs. best all around tire you can buy IMO.

    if ur tryin to save some dough, the buy 3 get 1 free deal on procomp MTs from 4wpw isnt bad. either way you can get a 0-mile 100% new trail spare (35" procomp MT) from me for a mere $100 more. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Id love to get a MTR but the only reason why I cant is because they dont have a 16.5 rim size. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    The TRXUS come siped from the factory. That'll help in slippery conditions. They seem to be wearing pretty good on mine. Just my, .02 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And mine handle great in the snow! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I will 4th that I love my bfg ats, 6k miles on em and still have the nipples on the tread, so wear is good, and as far as snow 1.5 ft snow on a dirt road didnt bother them at all.
    Ice on the other hand, no non studded tire is gonna be great on ice, but I would put money on my bfgs against any other non studded tire on ice. (except blizzaks, cant get them in 35) They are quiet to.
