    no sir.

    but, for a daily driver that dosent see much off road, the bfg's will last a little longer. maybe 5000 miles, but I will give that up for the looks of the mtr.

    I hear good things about the nittos, but they are an all terrain tire, and dont like mud at all.

    i like the micky thompson baja claws...personally...they arent bad for street . not the greatest on ice for obvious reasons :) but they clean out really well in mud only other downside is price

    other wise go with bfgoodrich mud terrains

    Not the 40s :fawk:



    Yeah the rest of the MTRs (37s and smaller) I would pass on, for mud and now for just about anything since there are better tires out for rocks too like krawlers. I would get the Trxus if you want a good street/offraod mix. Good tread pattern, siped, good relativly tough sidewall. I wouldn't even consider BFGs. Weak sidewalls and a lot of people I know have problems getting crap in the beads with them. Don't know if its the "rim protector" or what but a lot get bead leaks after offraoding.

    compared to what, a swamper? they obviously arent as agressive as a dedicated mud tire, but they do quite well in their class. for a truck that is street driven on a regular basis, the MTR is an excelent all around tire. If you want a mud bog tire, buy boggers.

    According to all the Bronco guys I interact with, Goodyear MTR's offer the best on road manners of all the "mud-terrain" based tires.
    For AT, BFG's All-Terrain is very, very hard to beat.

    If you're considering Interco tires of any kind (Bogger, TSL swamper, etc), know you're going to have shitty on road handling, poor ride quality, and poor tire wear.

    BFG Krawler's are only available in 37" sizes and larger (last time I checked anyway) and they're extremely expensive...3-400 dollars per tire.

    I can vouch for the BFG M/T 285/75/r16s. Great tire, just very poor on packed snow/ice obviously. And on washboard gravel roads, they seem to kick out alot.
