im looking for some good tires that i can eventually get after i get my lift kit.
Are super swamper Thornbird'x any good i want a good tread that will last for a while to hopefully as long as i own it through high school
i mostly do mudding but sometimes if i find rocks ill climb them but ive only done this once becasue thats all ive found in the 1 year ive owned this jeep im looknig for a good mud terrian in 31 inch size. any suggestions or are the Thornbird's good?

Im most likely gonig to get a rubicion express 3.5" lift for my jeep as soon as i get paid again is this a good lift ive heard good things about rubicion.

I have been told the birds suck but I have a friend with a toyota pickup and hes running the birds so far they dig pretty good as for tire wear i cant really comment

i have the buckshot mudders and i have over 17000 miles on them and they are still over half tred...i drive a lot depending on how much you drive is how many years they will last

as for the tires off road they dig really well i cant complain

and everyone knows the BFG makes a great tire

I have BFG MT's. They've got 30k+ miles on them and I still have a little over half the tread left. Keep in mind that I rotate and align habitually every 3K and have a full size spare as part of that rotation. Still that's pretty damn good for 5 tire rotation with MT's.

Performance wise (offroad), they are ok...good but not great.

As far as the RE 3.5", it's a good lift. Just make sure you get the full leaf packs and not the AAL. It costs a little more, but the back end won't sag in a year either. Wink

ive got bfg at, becuase like you, im in high school and only do mud, so i wanted em to last longer because i cant keep replacing them. they've never gotten me stuck or anything, ive got less than 3k on em though, haha. they're quiet as well. but if you're set on mud terrain... i dunno what type to get.

4WD Hardware is a good one. They have excellent customer service every time I've dealt with them. Also, if you join their forum, you get 5% off all your orders. You just have to include a code that you can get from one of the moderators.
