Their typical sale is buy 3, get one free. Of course when they do that, the price of the tires is like $185 each. When they don't have the sale, the price on the tires is like $155 each. Total marketing ploy to make you think you are getting much more for your money.

Anyways, I've never liked ProComp tires. Their design has been constantly rated low in tests by the various off-road magazines. People here on the board complain about the tires wearing out fast. On the flip side, I've seen people praise the tires. Seems there really isn't a clear concensus about any brand of tires. Me personally, I dislike BFG tires and love my Goodyear MT/Rs. They are pricey as hell, but are a really good tire, IMHO.

So anyways...do whatever you want. My opinion usually means nothing.

hah well thanks for the input. i was going to get 4 33/12.5/15 for like 540 bucks at the sale, which is a pretty good deal to me. i guess a wheel is a wheel.

I have heard both good and bad about the tires. A lot of people I know run the Pro Comp X-terrains. The local offroad shop sells the hell out of the M/T and the x-terrain version. They wear pretty fast and pack up with mud. But on the flip side they seem to be pretty exceptional on the rocks.

The MT's are decent tires. One of my friends has them on his prerunner. I personally have the BFG MT KM's. They clean alot better. What kind of wheeling do you do most? In Louisiana, all we have is mud, and my truck hasn't ever seen the rocks. The BFG's work very well for me, and have worn very well. I know a couple of people who have run the X-Terrains, and they say that their performance in mud is just decent. However, they have told me that they do alot better if you mount them backwards. I got my 32X11.50 MT's for $138 a piece. I just went to TireRack and printed out a quote. I also changed the price using Adobe. Then, I went to Wally World and gave them the quote because they price-match. I got them for $138 a tire no questions asked.

I ran the MTs (32x11.5x15) and they were pretty decent on road, and off. They wore fairly fast at first, then leveled off and stayed at 50% tread forever. Better than BFG MTs in the rain due to the siping. I would consider them again, but I don't really want to keep supporting 4WPW.

siping is the fine lines cut into the tread.

The Trxus is well siped.


The BFG MT is not.


You can get siping done at most tire shops, for pretty cheap. It isn't legal everywhere though, but a shop won't do it if it isn't. Below is a hand siped swamper, the machines at the tires shops do a bit cleaner job.

I'm running the Procomp A/T and they are really great. I've got 30-35k on them and still have over half tread left. I dont do any rock crawling, I just stick to the dirt. I heard the m/t and the x/t have much softer rubber and dont last nearly as long

Ive ran 2 sets of PC MT's with the best results. 1st of 32x11.50 set lasted me 55,000 miles and the set I have now 33x12.50's has over 45K. About to replace them w/ PC AT's though. The best deal is on eBay I found for $467 w/ free shipping and no tax for 4 33x12.50'S

Just find the best deal you can on what you want and go to discount tire for a price match. going with discout tire you get lifrtime ballancing too
