Re: Back to school 4th quiz

I used to run 31"x10.5"x15" Michelin Mud/Snow tires. Pretty good off road but they sucked in the rain, always felt like I was hydroplaning. Also they were noisy as all get out...

I have switched to ProComp 33"x12.5"x15" "All Terrain". They are a great tire and pretty quiet. It has been raining in Colorado and they work well on wet pavement. It is starting to snow in the high country so we will find out about that pretty soon. Also I have done a bit of trail riding, nothing too difficult, just Mt. Blanca, Holy Cross City, Bill Moore Lake and a few other minor trails and I have to say they appear to be great off road. And in October I plan on trying them out on slickrock in Moab at the MOAB-GT (Mother of all Bronco Get Togethers). Although from my experiences even bald tires work on slickrock.

Re: Back to school 4th quiz

Daily driver/some (mostly dry) trails and powerline runs so far - looking forward to winter.

Bridgestone Dueler A/T


More open than other A/T's, 2 big channels down the center help traction and wear, and lot's o' sipes help them grip.

Re: Back to school 4th quiz

I used to run 31*10.5 Michelin LTX M/S's on my truck, and IMO they were an awesome street tire. They are aggressive enough that you dont have a problem in light snow, and they were ok in mud. And they seem to last forever. When i went up to 33s, they went on my bro's blazer, and are still going strong to this day. I would recommend them to anyone who likes to do the occasional light 'wheelin.

For half road/trail i have to say MTR. I seem to be wheelin more and more, and i love these tires. Yeah, theyre no swamper, but IMO theyre the next best thing for when it comes to mud, snow (even deep snow) and rocks. But....they have the typical M/T tire hum, and i dont think theyll last for 50k miles.

For all out trail rigs i have to go with either Boggers (mud only!), Swamper SX's, or the Krawler T/A KX (the new version).

Re: Back to school 4th quiz

Yes the Michelin's that I had were the same LT/X M/S's. I got them at Costco and I have to say that they were the longest wearing tire that I ever had. I put them on my Bronco when I bought it at about 70,000 miles and ran them until I hit 155,000 miles. In my book a tire that runs 85,000 miles is fantastic, in fact I could have probably got another 5,000 out of them. I now am at 164,000 on the Bronco. The ProComp's that I put on my Bronco are holding up great. Hard to believe that I put 9000 miles on it since the first part of June...

Re: Back to school 4th quiz

I've had my ProComp mud terrains working on 6 months now and I love 'em. They still look brand new(minus the little nubby ticklers). For a mud tire, they're quiet and they handle the best in rain of any mud tire I've owned(BFG's, Cooper SST's, Dunlap Mudrover's) and even better than the Cooper all-terrains I've had. The two big center lugs have considerable siping, unlike all other mud tires, and I think this has a lot to do with their on-road capabilities. The sidewalls are pliable and yet 3ply. The ProComp's clear themselves extremely well in the mud. Sorry, I don't have any snow/ice experience to share y'all seeing as how I live down here in the armpit of America. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] And, they were $60 cheaper than MT-R's. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] All in all, I think a good mud tire i.e. BFG, ProComp, Cooper SST, etc. is the best all around type of tire. An All-terrain isn't what it's name implies because they become drag slicks in mud. And if you go with a Swamper tire you're kicking a$$ in the mud, but you can't hear yourself think on the road as you drive to the tire store to buy your second set in a year. Again, I can only guess(and dream) about winter terrain.
