Destination A/T or BFG M/t?
 
Well,

After putting on the OME Lift, I think I need to replace my 235 Street Tires with something more All-Terrain, but still road friendly. I think I am going to go with either the Destination A/T or the BFG M/T. What are the pros and cons of both and which would you choose for off roading 1 every two months and looks while keeping price in mind? Thanks!

Depends on what you are planning on offroading on but if you are looking for something more All Terrain than I'd guess go with the All Terrain vs the Mud. Any reason for the Destination A/T over the BFG A/T? Heres a good site for tire info and reviews though. http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT.../tire-tech.htm

If you get into mud fairly often, then the mudders are for you. If not than the Destinations, General GrabberAT2's (I Love them!) or BFG AT's are quieter on road and good off road for everything but real goopey mud.

I have the Destination A/T's and I am very impressed with them. They are quiet, wear like iron, and provide great traction in heavy snow, and light off road use. Reasonable price too!

I was thinking about the the Generals when its time. The price is def a motive to the switch from the BFGs I've got now. Hows the tread life on the Generals? What kind of wheeling do you do usually?

I have them on about a year now and tread wear is minimal so far. Most of my wheeling is wet mud and fairly easy trails almost no rock climbing at all. Even in some pretty sticky but shallow mud they are great. Took a hill last winter with 5" of snow on it and hardly spun a tire. Very pleased with them.

Does anybody know of a picture of a JEEP GC with Destination A/Ts and a 2" lift?

for what its worth, you should also consider the wrangler silentarmor AT, they wear exceptionally well, are exceptionally tough, and are very quiet on the highway for an AT tire. I also find mine have excellent grip offroading

I do almost all of my offroading on the beach with a trail once or twice a year so street and sand are my main concerns with the other stuff an after thought. I was thinking about these b/c they are good on street and sand plus they look badass. (sorry bud, not trying to hi-jack your thread :D) http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT...e_Grappler.htm

its not really fair to compare an AT tire to a mud terrain tire.

Don't think it was a comparison question so much as a which option is better. That's why I told him it depended on what kind of offroading he was using it for. If theres a bit of mudding going on, MT is def the was to go otherwise might as get an AT tire.
