    I bought some 35x12.50x15 BFG MTs. They're just slightly bigger than I need for my XJ. I wouldn't get much articulation cause I'd have to add more bumpstop too. Plus, my front bumper is custom and it would definitely rub into it and I don't wanna do anymore hacking on the fenders.

    So, I was thinking 33x12.50x15s. I tried somebody elses and they're perfect.

    Just seeing what yall had and would recommend for 33s. Price, streetability, etc. I like the BFGs. Just seeing if there is something else better though.

    I run Interco Super Swamper Truxus MTs, 33x12.5


    Best mud tire out there, and cheap too.

    Good for everyday driving? Noise on street? Last long?

    i have 35" MT/Rs (actually 315 75 16) on my XJ with 6.5" lift and a ton of fender trimming.... and still rub a little :o 33s would be a good size, and i recommend 4.56 gears as well. 33s with 3.55s are slow as shit :hs:

    I just don't wanna fuck with gears, and bumpstops, and more trimming.

    Quiet as fuck, and smooth too. They wear pretty well.. not as good as BFGs, but still good.

    I have had 33x12.5x15 BFG ATRs for ever. I think think they're the best streetable AT tire there is. They last forever, they're cheap, they ride well, and they look great.

    (72 blazer with 4" of lift btw - I don't run those anymore though)

    :dunno:


    If I were going to do it again, I'd buy from 4 wheel parts and get their no questions asked warranty. Then when the tires started to wear down a little bit, I'd accidentally puncture one. I'd do it 4 times on a somewhat regular basis and never have to buy tires again ;)

    i've got 33" mtr's on my fullsize bronco. For an aggressive mud tire, they are pretty quiet, ride and handle decently and seem to last pretty well. I'd buy them again.

    Those aren't mud tires. They suck in the mud.

    Jeeps are for homos, besides rock-crawling is lame, real Desert Racing will get you adrenaline going.......80mph though woops you can stand in definitely surpasses pebble-crawling.....
