I have a 2wd GMC 1/2ton w/3" susp Fabtech Lift.
I've gotten my answers about 2 tires I suggested earlier...
Pirelli or Bridgestone(s).
I really need new tires so what about BFG's...
TA's or MT's?
If the majority of my driving will be intown, and h/way but
occasional roadin' @ my ranch on weekends, which one will
be best utilized to it's fullest potential? TA's or MT's...I'm also
looking for an aggressive look to compliment my truck...
Will welcome all comments...THANX!

For a 2wd vehicle I suggest swampers.

I really like my bfg mt's for all around driving. I put 3000k a month on them of which probably 95 percent of is getting to work everyday but I would rather have swampers if I could afford them.

Texas is pretty dry, isn't it? You won't have a problem with BFG MT's on the road, they're a pretty tame tire when it comes to road manners. The woosh of air you hear when the window's down kinda makes you feel tough anyhow ;) It'll certainly be better than any of the all terrain tires you've mentioned so far when it comes to off-road application. As far as aggressive styling goes, you won't find an AT that comes close.

That being said, I ride on Goodyear MT/R's.

DON'T BUY BFG A/T'S!!!!!!!! they suck, i could care less about what anyone else has to say about them, i've had 2 sets the first seperated and the second i had a blowout on highway after they were 6 months old, not to mention that they suck in mud and are good for looks and that's about it. I should have some pics developed on sunday and i could show you how crappy they work in mud as my friends 85 4x4 shortbox chev is stuck up to it's bumpers and 2 min before he got stuck we have a pic of my blazer bombin through the samehole(he was folloing my tracks) and i run el cheapo mud terrains and i smoke his truck everywhere. get the muds for sure

BFG MTs.

If you need better rain handling get them siped.
I run siped BFG MTs all year round with no problems. The ones I have are on their 3rd vehicle and have somewhere in the neighborhood of 70,000 km on them. They will easily last another 10,000 km.

Just thought I'd point out that there's a black toyota on my street with 33" BFG AT's on my street and I shed a tear for him each day when I drive by it. From the side, those are some pretty weak looking tires. Honestly, if you want something chunky that still performs AWESOME on the road, get Goodyear MT/R's. Then again, you'll have to buy a second wallet, the first one probably won't cut it ;)

well i'am on my 2nd set of bfg muds and the new ones are the best all around tire i have ever driven on. i would highly recommend the new bfg km mud terrian. they look awsome good price, and i'm on track for over 60 000km's witck is really good for a mud terrian.
my vote is for the bfg KM!!!
make sure it is the new one's!
my 2 cents
ps goodyear is to $$$

I agree , get some MT's, they work well and are durable.
However I had a set of AT's, and I went everywhere with them. They worked well on rocks and way better in rain or snow, but not as well in mud.
I went to the MT's and found they provide more mud traction, but not really any more in the rocks or dry conditions.
