what kind should i get?
i have an 85 with no lift and 4.10 gears.
it will be a daily driver so i am going to skip on the super swampers for a few more years.

what brand? i'm thinking; bfg, bridgestone, goodyears (if i'm that rich), coopers

i definatly want mud tires i off road a lot and am always trying to crawl over boulders.

basically i want some thing strong and durable and works good.

i am also contemplating sizes. mostly 31x10.5x15 or 32x10.5x15 <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

my 81 truck was fine on 33x12.50x15s with stock gears....just used a sledgehammer on my front inner fenders (firewall area) and it was fine...went way more places than my 31s before with way less axle dragging.

Besides, you'll be wanting 35s soon anyways. Been there, done that!

Either way, be sure to feel the sidewall thickness as the cheaper tires are ususally thinner there. BFGs are decent for radial sidewall strength, but could be better. Goodyears sidewalls sucked on their MTs! Supposedly the new MTRs are lots better, but I don't know anybody that runs em to find out.
