i run the pro comp xtreme mts, off road I love them. They love to dig in the loose stuff and push forward. On the road they behave pretty well. They are a little loud but with the radio on medium and the air conditioner on you can hardly hear them I would recommend these or check out the extreme ats Pro comp tires at hard to beat. Especiall when you get them buy 3 get 1 free

I would say hands down that the bfg is the best all terrain around... I have bought the bfg's for all of my trucks and i have never had a blow out. The tread wear is really good depending on if you like to do burn outs or not... i do it sometimes. Im from the south and there is nothing but sand and super nasty mud. They do awesome on the beach even in super deep sugar sand and they do pretty well in mud for an all terrain. i run the 285/ 75/ r16 and im sold for bfg... now they aint the cheapest tire around but i feel its worth the cash. why do it half azzed the first time then decide ur not happy and want to upgrade.

TRUCK: 2006 nissan frontier kc 6 speed, red alert 4x4
LIFT: Calimini 5" 4x4 parts 2" BL. TIRES: 33/12.50/R20 nitto mud grapplers PERFORMANCE: superchips cortex, Volant cai, helix tbs, stillen catback exhaust. AUDIO: 7" flip screen dvd player, KICKER solo L7 15" Sub, Fusion 2000w amp OTHER MODS: Tru Trac, DIY bed liner, black bull bar, black side steps. BROKEN PARTS: Front diff, Trasfer case main seal x2, Tailgate

I think Im going to go with the BFG A/T KO's But I got a quote yesterday for the wild country XTX sport all season. suposed to be a mix between a Mud terrain and an AT, Its rated as a traction device.They said its a 50k mile tire too!!. But they are spendy as hell..@ $184 each!!

bfg does make some very good tires but I think part of what you are paying for iis the name. I have 20000 miles on my tires and very minimal wear. I would be will ing to bet that these tires will last me 100000 miles. They are extremely durable

i just bought a set of a/t tires, Fuzion XTi. Fuzion is an offbrand of bridgestone/firestone, and theyre really great tires. and they provide great wet traction along with the standard abilities a/t. that was my first concern, that i got good trax in the rain. also theyre one of the more affordable choices on the market. defenatly check out the review on tire rack, NOBODY gave them nebad reviews.

The answer depends on whether you wheel or not. NJ doesnt get that much snow (I think BFG AT's suck in snow...mud too for that matter).

Kumho makes a decent AT, much less expensive than the BFG's and I found them to be much better in snow and mud (they're still not a MT). They wont last 70k like BFG's will but in my opinion, they are a better tire.

Bridgestone Dueler Revo's are a good tire too from what I've heard.

I love the Revo's I've had...had a set on my Ranger and another on my Frontier. The nice thing about them is they are a great compromise between off and on-road performance. They do what I need in the dirt, but I can thrash the truck around on the street to and they still have amazing grip. I'm getting a set of Pirelli Scorpion ATR's on tonight though. I'm still happy with the Bridgestones but just figured I'd try something different.

I bought the same tires a couple months ago and i'm very happy with them, save for the road noise. They're noisier than the stock long trail's but it's not too bad with the radio on. For the small amount I go off road they do me well.
