    I have nitto mud terrains and love them. I have never had coopers but have heard nothing but good things from the people who use them.

    Just switched out my POS BFG's for the Nitto Ridge Grapplers, and couldn't be happier! As mentioned, Nitto, Cooper, to yo, all make great AT tires.

    Seconded on bfg... trash! At least here in the desert rocks, loud and chunked horribly.

    3 inch zone lift. Fox 2.0 shocks. 35 inch nitto ridge grapplers. Bushwacker flat fenders. No name steel bumpers front and back for now.
    Ridge grapplers. Buy em. Smooth, quiet, wear well, and they do just as good as a mud tire on the trails. I've got about 10,000 miles on mine and they still look brand new. And that's after driving on both pavement and off road.

    Good comparison between the BFG AT KO's, and the Ridge Grapplers. First Jeep is running the BFG's in a size 285/70/17. Aired at about 30 psi. I'm running 285/75/17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers aired at 38 psi. The Jeep with the BFG's spins and slides trying to get up a climb, while I take the same track, with no tire spin, or sliding. The Nittos have a crap ton more grip! Watch the @ :45 second mark

    Maxxis made a new tire called the Razr and someone should call the doctor cuz they are SICK!

    Not as aggressive as a muddy but more than an AT. And IMO if your gonna wheel at all ATs suck.

    My maxxis buckshot mudders, which I loved, were unstoppable in the mud and off-road in general but they rode soft and smooth in the street. Of course I did get the 6 ply tires and not the 10 ply cinder blocks.

    My maxxis treps, which I love even more and am probably obsessed with at this point, are a little bouncier but not harsh at all. These are very very, very quiet. It is unreal how quiet. They don't even have a hum. More like a whisper.

    My buddies trailcat (700+hp $120k 17 Rubicon) has 40" maxxis trep radials, and bias ply on a 6.4 hemi 16 Rubicon. He says off-road they perform identically. He also has the maxxis razr on a dually and says that he is so impressed with the Razr off-road that it will be his next set for the trailcat.

    To think maxxis markets this as their tamer tire yet they perform well enough to be comparable to the treps for the man with one of the baddest jeeps on the planet.

    I don't think you can go wrong with the Razr man you should consider looking at them in a 6 ply. That is of course if you plan to wheel at all.

    Otherwise all terrains are nice but can't offer advice there.

    As far as tread thickness i drove thru everything and never punctured the buckshot mudders. I haven't wheeled the treps but I expect the same with those as the compounds are similar and I would imagine the same goes for the Razr.

    There used to be a definite difference between AT and MTs. These days I would consider a mild Mt like Toyo MTs or an aggressive AT like the RZR if your looking for long life on the street as well as decent trailability. My Chevy 2500 sees very little on the trails but is does see a lot of offroad for hunting, fishing or towing the jeep to the trail heads that are offroad. I really like the Nitto ATs for the big truck, and usually see a life of 60000+miles out of them. The RZr is a new tire and I got to see it perform a few weeks ago when my buddy bought them for his jeep. Outstanding, but still not as good as the Treps IMO. I run stickies on my trail rig, and Toyo MTs on my Dual duty jeep.

    Ok trying to decide on Toyo AT, Nitto Terra Ridge Graplers G2 and Falken Wildpeak AT3W. I keep going back and forth.
    285/70/17 no lift.

    Of those I like Nitto the best, but I hear they are all good tires.
