Tires

What tires do you folks prefer for offroading and or daily driving?
I'm using BFG KO2 all-terrains I love these tires they have a fairly aggressive tread pattern for an all-terrain tire and the rubber isn't too hard nor too soft

The set I ran on my 85 Standard Cab were the best all-around tire I have tried.  They worked awesome in Moab.

Gnarls.

When I bought my truck I put a set of Uniroyal Liberator A/T's on they was great in the mud and lasted me close to six years but the tire compound was way too hard and they really sucked in the snow

Falken Wild Peak AT's. Grip really well and can air down to 10 psi without issue.
Why do you ask if you're happy with the BFG's?

I'm running 31x10.50 SUPER SWAMPER RADIAL TSL tires because they were just installed on it when I bought my truck. I don't rock crawl but run in rough hilly muddy stuff. I like them but they're on 10" wide wheels and they float to much to really bite good on the back. Honestly my favorite tires are the old 7.50-16 bias ply mud tires like people ran years ago. For my needs tall/skinny tires work best.
