Been running Toyo MT's on my HD Trucks for some years now...great tire. Good mileage for a mud terrain and fairly quiet as well and can handle any load I put on them. I typically get about 45k out of a set, the only draw back is the price...pretty expensive.

On my 3rd set of tires on my Jeep now. 1st set were BFG All-Terrains, and I was relatively unimpressed. They were stock sized 235/75/15 and IMO were nothing special considering the cost. My second set of tires were 31x10.50 Interco Trxus MTs and I loved everything about them minus the wear. My current set of tires is a set of 285/70/17 BFG KM2s. I have been pretty happy with them although I haven'tt put a lot of miles on them. The tire you should use depends largely on exactly what it will be used for.

My suv 4x4 came with Bridgestone Duellers and I got 90k kilometres out of them..hard to balance and a harsh ride fair traction
My next set was a set of Khumo HD Vectors great highway ride tire but bad traction got 85 k kilometres out of them
I currently have Michelin LTX mud and Snow pretty good traction, a little noisy and I have about 20k kilometres on them nd there is
about 75% tread left.. I really like them for handling on gravel and mud and some snow expensive

Just bought my second set of Nitto TerraGrapplers. Great tires and CHEAP! I got about 72,000 out of my first set, and they really only needed to be replaced because my ball joints were bad but I couldn't afford to get them fixed at the time, so I just kept running them. I think I paid about $155 each for 295/70/17's, mounted balanced and on the truck. These are really great tires, very good off road 10-ply tires, but very quiet on the road.

I had a set of Bridgestone Dueler AT's on my dodge for about 5 years with about 20k miles and they were pretty much shot. go figure, other people that have the same tire usually get about 40-50k miles out of them. ditched those, lifted the truck, and put some 35" Hankook Dynapro MT R03's I think they are on last year. got about 7k miles on them (no I dont drive very much) and are holding up really well. starting to get a little noisey though but it isnt obnoxious. they work great in mud and snow, havent tried sand yet.

Had BFG AT's for 3 years and got 60k out of them. Now I have Cooper discoverer st's and think they're even better because they are a go-between for mud terrain and all terrain. And they're cheaper by a couple hundred per set.

I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab Z71 I currently have Nitto Terra Grapplers on it and I have about 45,000 miles on them with about another 20,000 left from what I can see, I love these tires. They are quiet and have plenty of traction. I'm not going mudding with them just driving on torn up logging roads during deer season, and the muddy levy roads during duck season.

Toyo AT's now and These have been the BEST tire I have ever owned for on pavement and basic off road and farm use. They stick like glue on snow and ice and handle mud fine too even when hauling equipment or wagons. I had Goodyears and then Cooper Mud tires on the truck and they were both JUNK compared to the toyos. I did have a set of siped TSL Swampers on my 98 and they were great in mud, snow and ice but were very loud and wore quickly. These toyos are as close to silent as I think you can get. I will be going with the 315's next time around just for the "Bigger" look.

im running 37inch mud grapplers, and they are great! for a mud tire they are lasting great, and im able to go anywhere and i went mudding last night and they did great they toss some big old chunks and rip a lot up if your not careful :eek: but they get me to my goose hunting spots and around the farm. the only reason i wont recomend these is becasue it sounds like im drivin an airplane when i get goin 50mph+ ive got close to 10,000 and they are about 65-75%tread left, not sure why some idots only get 15,000 out of them, and i drive like a mad man half the time!

for a good all around, towing, mud, AT, and get you across the soft stuff tires id recomend Cooper s/t's and s/tt's

but if you want a tire that will get you through the swamps get some boggers! they are hell in the mud! but if your on the road they are a big NO-NO idoling along you can feel th truck drop and rise when each lug hits the ground and they start makin noise at about 20mph

ProComp Xtreme A/T's on a 6' lifted Avalanche, best tires I have run so far. Very tough tire, better ride and less noise than the Nitto's that were on it before. I think the Toyo's are great as well and almost put them on but liked the look of the ProComp a little more.

My favorite before my current tires were Hankook RF04s. I love my Yokohama Geolander AT-S. Great on and off road. We have them on the wife's Rav-4 and my Tundra. Damn near everybody runs them round here.

On my 3rd set of Yokohama Geolander AT-S, have driven over 55,000 miles on each of them, still had a lot of tread but were losing traction and cupping, "dont forget to rotate". Very good tire, wish they would have stayed with old tread design though. Also have a set of MAXIS MTs i put in during hunting season, have been very good so far, only 15000 miles on though.

Watch out with them Generals. The DOI made all the wildland vehicles pull them off due to a high occurrence of blowouts. We still have them on one of our rigs, and it's stuck if it leaves the pavement pretty much.

I just put on a set of Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's on my brothers Sierra today and boy are they nice tires. Did a lot of research before he ordered them and almost all were great as long as they weren't on a Ford

I have 15K on my Dean Wildcat A/T's and they still look brand new. They aren't the most aggressive tire but they are on a 2wd anyway, plus I couldn't turn them down for the price

I have Big O A/T's on my truck. Big O is a national chain tire store (in 20 states). I have put their tires on several of my trucks. All have performed well off road and in inclimate conditions. All Big O tires have lasted 40,000 to 45,000+ miles. Included in the price of Big O tires is lifetime rotation and balancing. Every time I have them change the oil they also rotate and balance the tires. I also check the air pressure at least once a month. No matter what brand I think the key to long tread life is rotation and balancing , maintaining correct pressure and periodic alignment checks..

That shouldn't happen but it can happen at any shop and I have heard similar stories even at dealers. I don't have time to do routine maintaince on my vehicles nor do I want to any longer (use to do it all tuneups, brakes major repairs. I did it for years don't ever want to again). I have been taking my vehicles to Big O for 15+ years for tires, brakes, oil change and other routine things. I know the guys there personally and have had nothing but excellent service and they have stood by all their work.

Ive run about all of your big name mud tires and a few others over the years on daily drivers that spent alot of time in fields and back roads, to full blown trailer queen off road buggies and for the money I recomend the BFG ATs for probly 90% of the drivers out there and if you gota go places you shouldnt be then the BFG MTs are hard to beat.
