Im was lookin at the spidertraxx spacers and a set og 265/70/17 for tires but i cant pick out a tire. Also doing a spartan cam with cmr tune and srt manifolds and complete duel exhaust hoping that will getme good power. Anyways looking for a god set of tires for desert and mostly street driving. MY unit is moving to elpaso texas when we get back and it seems like everything there is sand and a little mud but im from michigan and well everything there is muddy and shit so i want ot be able to handle both ok im not a hardkore offroader like i said mostly street driving. what do u guys think for a sweet tire right now im lookin at general at2 and bfg ats.

Re: When i return from afghanistan

great ideas for your ride, ome makes a great lift fro what I have read. Ask Acidcold (member on here) about the spidertraxx, i am sure he will know. I have always been a fan of the Nitto Terra Grapplers, great looking IMO and quiet on-road with good A/T properties. keep us posted on the progress and make it back safe!!

Re: When i return from afghanistan

BFG AT's are a good tire but most people are tired of them because they have been around for decades with little change. The Grabbers are pretty good too. It all boils down to personal preferance. I run BFG's MT right now, and am about to move to the new MT KM2's. In my opinion these are more all terrain than the tires that are marketed as all terrain. If I were going back to Bliss or Hood I'd do something more along these lines or maybe a Goodyear, or Toyo MT. There are a lot of killer trails out there by Bliss and I'd want to take advantage of them. But all of the tires I mention will cause a little bit of excess road noise, and a small drop in fuel economy.
