    For a good off road handlers but quiet on pavement I like Good Year Wranglers. I have used them a few times before and found them to be a good marriage between aggressive off road use and every day driving for a 1/2 ton truck.

    consumer report said that the Nitto Terra Grappler ATs were the number 1 tire. some people love them, some people hate them. the BFG AT KO are a pretty good tire.

    According to my latest Consumer Reports, they have the Nittos at #8. They list the Pirelli Scorpion ATR's at #1. I've heard lots of good things about the Nittos though, and they are among the tires I will look at when I have to get new rubber on my truck.

    I hate them. they SUCK in the mud
    Bfg all terrains are great in the mud and are a respectable tire on the road.
    My dad has pro-comp X terrains and they are a great offroad tire . and a decent road tire .. he drives the jeep everyday on a 20 mile drive on the Hwy

    I totally agree...they suck!

    The BFG's all terrain are great all around tires and you get great mileage out of them. Even the mud terrains get great mileage. I have 35,000 miles on my mud terrains and have great tread left.

    Agreed on the BFG's. I've run AT's, and my wife has the MT's and they hold up really well. Not a noisy tire either.

    best bang for the buck is the nitto terra grappler. if you want to spend the extra money go with the bfg a/t. quality is the same, the bfg you will pay more just for the name tho.

    I have heard great things about the bfg all terrains. On my 2wd I have cooper discoverer ST's. They were already run for a ton of miles before I got them (free from my boss). I've put a ton of miles on em and they still have good tread. They do well in the snow too.

    ^ see what i mean, some people love them, some people hate them. i do like the Pirelli ATRs, nice aggresive yet sporty tread, heard they arent too noisy either

    on the other hand im running Falken Landair HTs(yep a highway tire) and they do great in the mud lol of coarse they are 10 plys so its going to take a little more then a few sticks and rocks to go through them, but then again im not in the mud everyday
