I ran the old BFG muds without any problems. I'm running the new ones now. I don't see how siping can make-up for a third layer in the sidewall. Is that not the only difference?Originally posted by PJR:
<STRONG>I've had good luck with the PROCOMP MTs.Theyre a hell of a lot better tire than the "OLD" BFG MTs.Waiting to see if the new BFGs are any better.</STRONG>

<STRONG>SSR's sidewalls are about the same as a BFG. They're just stickier tread and more $$$.</STRONG>
wow, 33's are cheaper than 31's <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">Originally posted by MasterYota:
Just got a look at 4 Wheel Parts ad in the new (Nov. 2001) 4Wheel&OffRoad - on page 50.
They have an actual PICTURE of the X-Terrain, and... and... "I shalt call thee, Baja Claw II"
Seriously, it looks like they started designing the tire with the goal of making it look as close as possible to the Claws, complete with sidewall tread, but with rounded Bogger-style lugs.
I think I'll take either of the Bias tires over the 2 ply radia, thank you. Oh! almost forgot - pricing:

<STRONG>Well I for one thought the same of MY Procomp 35 MTs, a weak sidewall with not aggressive enuf' tread pattern. <snip>
I now know that after watching numerous trucks with (stock treaded)boggers not being able to make the sections my Procomps did with, I will not buy'em.</STRONG>
That test was lame. They swamper they used was a 35x15, which is rarely used, especially for MUD <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> If you look at their results, except for the Bogger, the narrow tires won. The guy who let them use his Jeep and property for the test runs 38.5x11 Boggers, well I assume he did, the author called them 38" Boggers <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">Originally posted by j-me4runner:
<STRONG>So are you saying the MTR's aren't good in mud? I was getting ready to buy a set this week, and if they do that bad in comparison to a swamper I might not. One of the magazines( I think 4wheel & off road) had a tire comparison where the MTR's did better than some of the swampers. Thats what I was going by. Any thoughts before I buy?</STRONG>
