    Good bang/buck 31x10.5" tires ?

    I've got a 91 Ranger and I would like to stick some 31x10.5" tires on the stock 15"x7 alloy wheels.

    I've been doing some searching around and it seems that the two good deals on tires in this size are

    Pro Comp All Terrain (Tom the tire guy has these in stock and will mount for free)
    BFG All Terrain T/A KO ($130 from tirerack.com + shipping + mount/balance)

    Both offer fairly agressive looking tread, and both are apparently really good in the snow.

    I don't do any crawling, I will be doing a lot of camping along forrestry roads with washboard, as well as towing a utility trailer for dirtbikes or shuttling mountain bikes up vedder mtn.

    I also drive from Surrey to whistler mtnbike park often so I don't want to go with something that wears quickly.

    You could try the Westlake CR857. I am running them on my Sidekick and so far haven't really been disappointed. I've only tried them on rocky and snowy trails so far though. They were $130 loose and have a lifetime road hazard warranty. Maybe not the coolest sounding name but now you have more gas money to drive to Whistler.

    if you have a saws-all I have some new 33X9.5X15 mounted on jeep rims (bolt right onto the ranger)

    Give me a email if interested thedjjack@yahoo.ca we can work out a price that works for both of us..

    9.5 little thinner have other advantages besides fuel mileage

    The truck is stock ride height right now, I don't think there is any way I could fit them. It's a 91 4x4 Sport

    I run the Trxus MT 31x10.5 and I love them.

    Excellent traction in everything but deep snow (they suck in deep snow). I have run a variety of different tires over the years and for the price the Trxus are hard to beat for general trail use. They really excel on those loose, damp trails climbing out of creeks and holes etc. They do pretty good on rocks too. I'll buy them again.

    What about BFG

    From 4wheelparts.com I can get the All Terrain T/A's for $459 + 80 shipping, pick them up at pt roberts,

    Or I could get the Mud terrains for $551 + 80 shipping.

    Thats saving me around $300 over what the local tire shops can offer. I can get them mounted and balanced for free.

    My friend has the All terrain t/a's on his 08 ranger and claims that he's never had anything so good in light or deep snow.

    Are the mud terrains better for deep snow or could I stick with the all terrains considering the hwy miles I'll be putting on the truck.

    BFG Mud Terrains suck in deep snow, light snow, rain and are noisy. I hated them when i had them and will never buy them again. BFG A/T's are just as loud as the Interco Trxus, the Trxus are cheaper then BFG A/T's and Mud Terrains, they're way better in everything but every day use as they will wear faster. They look cool, perform amazing in all conditions i've used them in, rain, deep snow, light snow, mud, gravel, they're even pleasent to drive on a nice sunny day. I'd deffinately buy a pair again. Since you have a light truck they wont wear as fast as a heavier truck. Try them

    all terrain bfg's are some of the best for snow.

    there is a mountain pass in california between reno and sacramento where you need snow chains between sept and june unless you have a 4x4 and bfg all terrains.

    id go with the BFG's, I've Ran 31x10.5s, 33x10.5s and 33x12.5s on both my f150s in the past and now my bronco.. all were the all-terrain t/a's and i have nothing but good things to say about them, road noise isnt anything out of the ordinary for a truck and they handle logging roads and light wheeling good. the 33x10.5s right now are probably going on 3 or 4 years to so they wear good also!!

    Your brother should have bought them from a better supplier then, they are a great company to deal with, they won't have unhappy customer's. I have had X-Terrains, I now run the Xtreme M/T, and I put the Xtreme A/T's on my old man's truck. Unless I was into running a specialty tire..ie Swampers, etc.. I wouldn't run any other brand. Hands down.

    Also I know BFG's aren't a bad tire, but they aren't anywhere as good as their reputain states, for every good story out there there is a bad one, and that goes for any brand. Application is the key to any tire choice
