What would be the best type of tire for the many types of trails in Colorado. We see everything from large rocks to mud and lots of water around where I am. My size of preference would be a 33x10.5x15 but not to many brands actually offer that size. Anybody have any suggestions?

on this board there are really three popular brands, 1st is trxus made by interco, next is the Goodyear MT/R's, and then 3rd bfg M/T's. All three are great tires and I'm not ranking them in any special order. I'm not 100% sure if they all come in 33X10.50

I know that the BFG's come in that size and i was actually looking into them but they are expensive and im cheap. LOL. Im running BFG AT's now in a 33x9.5x15 and they do great in the snow and mud but otherwise they are to thin. The only reason i got them was because i got the 4 of them for $200 new i couldn't pass that up.

I have run the BFG MT's for the last year and a half and they have done me well, but I am going to give the Trxus MT's a try now (coming next month) as they are already sipped from the factory, providing better wet road traction along with the off road capability of a MT.

If you are looking for cheap tires, I have heard good things about the pro comp MT's also, and they are pretty cheap.

Check out http://www.ntwonline.com/ they have great prices on tires/wheels and ship them mounted/balanced to your door if you like.

Happy Hunting..

Dunlop mud rovers seem pretty good to me sofar quality tire brand and relatively inexpensive if you get them on a good deal (sams Club $108 for the 33's)

I am on my 3rd set of Remington Mudd Brutes.. I love them. I have seen them out perform MTR's and BFG MT's.. The lugs are huge and there is a decent amount of space between them.. I got 4 of the 35X12.5 variety for $700 mounted and ballanced..

Not to shabby.. Mr. Green

Whatever tire you choose check the sidewall ply. Some of the cheaper stuff will not hold up aired down on the rocks. What your're running now is a good tire, I have a friend who ran those skinny t/a's forever and swore by them, great in the snow. I have run BFG mud t/a's on both my Jeeps and only cut one sidewall, sharp rocks in Nevada, but half the tread was gone anyway so it was a good excuse to buy another set.
Bottom line... you get what you pay for. Looking for "cheap" and that's what you will get. Look for a quality tire and shop for the best price.

I would recomend the Truxus M/t's. I have about 8k miles on mine and they still look great. They are smooth and quiet compared to other m/t's. Before I got the trux's I had a set of ProComp m/t's, they were much louder and seemed to wear faster.

I love cheap, but if the cheap tires wear out faster, it's really not a good deal.
