Hi i just lifted my jeep and now looking for a set of 31s kinda cheap. im not looking for a mud tire but a good a/t tire good in a mud, snow, and wet roads. iv got several in mind but arnt great in each area. i like the BFG all terrain t/a ko and the Firestone destination a/t and mastercrast axt. if i had the money i would buy goodyear duratracs but they are to pricy for me at $191 each at my tire shop. can any one recomend me a good a/t tire for under 150 each? i really like the looks BFGs but heard there not good in snow. if anyone has another option let me kno

Go on craigslist and type in "31x10.50" and take your pick....

i checked craigslist in my local areas and nothing showed up worth going and looking at. used 31x10.50s are hard to come by in my area as everybody runs them on there pickups and farm wagons and homemade trailers.

check these out, they had to buff off the name because of an error

4 31" for $500 you can't beat that..

link...

plus free shipping ! ! !

see my other post, I run them and they really dig hard..
I wouldn't run those even if you gave them to me for free, I'm a tire snob and know from the experience of watching others that saving a few dollars is not worth shredding a cheap junk tire and getting towed out. Not to mention the wreck you would cause trying to drive in the snow with those.

I've driven 2 heavy snowed winters with these, so until you've ran these and spent a couple winters up here, your opinion doesn't mean much to my real world experience..

and they run in the snow great..

while you may get a bit of snow in Utah, that's nothing compared to up here..

this was 1966 and yes those are telephone poles..

The tires in the ebay link you provided look quite different from the tires you have been using on your Ranger, the ones on the Ranger appear to have a much better tread pattern and some siping. As for snow, I grew up in Maine and have driven many miles over snowy roads, not to mention I used to work in the ski industry in Colorado and would drive about 13k miles between Nov-Apr. What I do know is that among the 7 sets of BFG A/T's, 3 sets of MT/R's, and 2 sets of KM2's I have used over the years, I have never had a single flat or been stuck on the main section of any trail. But I have watched many other vehicles running generic brand tires slice sidewalls and some have even had the lugs rip completely off.

nope if you look close at the sidewall in this pic, you can make out the Mud Claw name..

sorry I came off harshly most people say that then you find out they live in Florida or something lol,

but this will be my 3rd set when they get here and I will continue to use them..

read the side wall on the front tire..
