Default Which Tires?

This poll is to help me decide which tires to get. If you don't like any of the choices please suggest another.

Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radial. They are mean. Sounds like a tank driving on tarmac but will never let you down offroad. I drove for several weeks with toe out in the front because I bent a rod but the tires showed no sign of this.

Michelins are always highly rated. More expensive - but in my opinion - worth the cost

BF makes a good offroad/onroad tire. I tend to stay away from them for strictly on-road use though.

I had a set of Hancook's on my old Scottsdale and I absolutely loved those tires. After installing them, the Scottsdale was tough to stop in snow and did well in the mud also. No extreme road noise. Stiff ride though because they were a higher ply tire, but I loved that for towing and hauling also.

From the above, I'd definetly choose BFG M/T, but you might consider running Cooper Discoverer STT's. I know a lot of people who have run them in NE Oklahoma over the years and everyone loves them. Also, if you want a decently aggressive tire that lasts a long time try BFG A/T KO. I ran these tires and had very good luck with them. They're great in the snow, have excellent wet traction and decent mud traction as well. Obviously, they won't compare to the Mud Terrains out there, but they have long wear life.

Food for thought.

There are two BF Goodrich Mud Terrains, the TA KM and the TA KM2. I have a friend that had the KM's on his Jeep, looked sweet as hell but they were lethal on ice. Any big tire like these should be siped if you are going to be on slick surfaces. Take a look at these. When I replace the 33" Parnelli Jones Dirt Grips I have on my Ram I plan on looking at one of these

Oh yeah, the Thornbirds look awesome but they're a biased tire not a radial as far as I can tell.

I went with the Yokohama Geolanders - They are great tires for a great price.

I went one size up as well- Makes the truck look 10X better and the ride with these tires are excellent. Tread depth is deep (I haven't had to use my 4wd the past 2 winters in Ohio) and after 20,000 miles I haven't noticed a lot of wear. Fuel mileage went down about 1-2 mpg but worth it for me.

Highly recommend.
