    yea they do pretty good on rocks too(as long as theyre not too sharp),little bit of ice,rain,and even kept me on the road in flood waters up to the bottom of my frame.not much sand here unless your goin through a kids sandbox so dont have experience with that

    I know I love my BFG's all terrians but I do some trail riding and highway so I needed a little more aggressive tire but if you do mostly all highway driving I know my dad loves his Goodyear wranglers on his suburban.

    all those other tires are good as well. the wranglers are like the STT's the bfg all terrains wear pretty good as well. its all going to come down to your prefference. i almost bought the Dune grapplers. the ones with flames on the tire? but i decided to go with STT's my next tire is going to be a 37" X-Terrain.
