My Terra Grapplers do well in the mud and on the road. Now mind you they are no Bogger, if you like to play in the real nasty stuff you might want to look into a real mud tire. Mine have done well in Alabama red mud, sand and tilled up pasture land and have great highway manners.

Look at the Mickey Thompson ATZ they have a great tread pattern but good for the road. Also the Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrain very aggressive tread pattern but great on the road.

I've got Nitto Terra grapplers (285 75) on the back of my 88 and so far they've done pretty good in light-medium mud, but the first time I got in some deep black clay they got clogged (but texas black clay can clog a bogger if ya tried hard enough) and ended all forward moment, but at least they didn't dig straight down with no moment like some tires do, so it was easy to get pulled out.

I have 15,000 on mine and they still look new. My cousin said he got 45,000 out of them, but I expect 30-35K on a truck as big as mine.

I was running the BFG All Terrain K/O's, they worked pretty good for light wheeling. But when I stepped up I put on Super Swamper SSR's.

They're both decent for pavement/mud. The All Terrains won't handle up to the really bad stuff though.

i don't like my bfg a/ts they clog up pretty quickly and are hard to clear with sticky stuff they have more road noise than a regular tire though but not as much as a bogger

x2. If you mud every weekend, you will get tired of AT's. TSL's are great tires, and i think they whine even more than the Bias.... atleast mine do.

im goin with the TSL radial ive seen many reviews and comments and i know a guy who runs them and so far he absolutely loves them he had boggers but he needed longer tread life he says they are comparable to the bogger in most types of mud but 10x better on the highway and they are better on sideways slopes as they have a good center lug pattern and the boggers dont....on my truck i have 31 pro comp m/ts and they are good highway tire some noise but i wouldnt recommend them for a truck that sees alot of mud they dont clean well and bogg down bad ive heard the pro compe x-treme series m/ts are decent
