    I like them. I ran the 34" LTBs and thought they worked great. There pretty soft so I"m not sure how well they'd last on the roads everyday.

    I also run them in 34's. I wouldn't run them for a daily driver as they are hard to balance and I don't think they would last long on the road, but if your running them as a second set they are great.

    You can fit 33's with that lift,its tight but nothing rubs on the street. I had the same setup an just added a 1"BL to gain a little extra clearance.
    I run 33 BFG MT's an they work great on the road an off, found mine used for $300 an bought 5 crager soft 8's 15x8 with 4"BS from summit racing lugs an center caps shipped to my door an got them the next day for $285 so for $585 did'nt think I did to bad, cause I was going to do the same combo as you but heard about how quick the LTB's would wear out an I can't afford to spend a grand a year on tires. Sorry to rant.

    Roger P runs the 31's and i believe he is happy with their performance but they are strictly off road. My brother ran his 33's on road for about two or three months and had them about half bald.

    I have LTB's on my samurai, but it runs about 100 miles a year. Good for offroad, they drive pretty good on road but I couldn't tell you about wear.

    If you are looking for something that is great onroad, yet still does alright off road, I'm a huge fan of BFG A/T's. Obviously not as good of an offroad tire, but they wear great, and work well in snow too.

    I'd get the BFG MT's if you want the best of both worlds. There tread isn't as aggresive as a swamper, but for a daily driver that sees a club ride 6 to 12 times per year you'd probably be happy with them. The BFG AT's would work, but for the price you'd be severly dissappointed in them as an offroad tire. Or course you'd probably not need new tires for like 5 years

    I have the BFG MT in 31" for all the reasons already mentioned. As my DD with an auto locker in the rear I needed something that would last.
    Bought them used from two different sellers, ended up with 6 BFG's and one Procomp. Tossed one of the BFG's, kept one for 'just in case', and the other 4 are in great shape. I use the almost new procomp as the spare, total $250. Then went to Summit, 5 15x7 soft 8's $200.

    I really like my Mickey Thompson MTZ's. The do good on the trails and still not real loud on the street. Probably not any used ones out the yet seeing they haven't been out that long. I have had the 31's and 33's.
