Uhhh I've been running BFG Muds for 10 years. I wanted a better tire and I found them in the MTR's. A good all around offroad tire, Awesome on the street and a good price. These in my opinion are the best because they won't wear out in 7000 miles. You said you were looking for the best.

Always had good luck w/BFG Mud TA's.never torn sidewall,etc..Only holes were from jobsites(screws/nails)Looking forward to my MTR's tho,hopefully the same experience...If BFG made a 37x12.5x15,I'd a got them.

I've run old BFG-muds, Swamper Radials, and Swamper SX's.  the SX's are my favorite, but not a great street tire.  For ALL AROUND mud/trails/rocks/etc I've been very impressed.

Oh yeah...and if you are shopping for a 33" tire, take the SX's off your list.  I know 3 guys with them, and none of them can keep them on a rim at anything less than 15 psi.  IMO, their mold is a bit loose on these...not a problem with the 35's or 38.5's.

yes, boggers are NOT snow tires, at any pressure.  I will say my siped SX's are impressive at 3.5# front and 3# rear in snow around 36" deep...heh heh  Was even able to drag up another truck running boggers  :D

I would also take a set of PJ's over MTR's.  If the MTR's weren't the shtuff, they wouldn't be so popular on the trail.  

SSR's, IMHO, are also a great tire but wear too damn quick on a daily.

Bogger's are great but my brother ran a set of 44's on his 92 Xcab LWB 4x4 Dodge Ram, Cummins TDiesel with the Banks Power pack - 365 HP and 700+ FTLBS

Any way his tires went bald on the road in no time at all......I told him so...

I'm Running Michelin XZL 11R16 on the FJ80 and find them to be a good all round package. Had them air at 8 psi on the sand and 12 psi on rocks and mud I will go lower pressure once I get the internial Bead locks.

"...Looking for the best."

The best at what? Snow? Rocks? Mud? Street? A combination of two or more? I think that would get more than one answer. I've run Buckshots, SX Swampers, BFG MTRs and Boggers.
Buckshots are the best noise makers on the market.
SXs were the best on MY Cruiser for hard wheeling and short daily driving.
BFGs are the best daily drivers with all around mud and rock crawling .
Boggers are the best tires I've had. I just don't drive them on the road much.

I have boggers on my toy p/u and ssr's on my 4runner.
The boggers great in almost everything but just ok in snow and sand.The ssr's kick ass on the wet slimey rock and dry rock,,totaly awesome,also do vey well in the slick mud,was very suprised,The ney gootyear mtr is also a very nice rock tire.Have not seen them in the mud but they look like they kick but on the rock.A few months ago a 4wheel mag posted these tirea as tested and rated..TOP 4,ANYWAY,,don't remember the rest off hand..but I know the bfg mud tires were in there somewhere.There were pros and con't to this test and this was just for off road I belive..to say the least you can't go wrong with the mtr ssr..I have also been very impressed with the swamper sx model,the only doe=wn fall is the limeited sizes they offer..

as per 4whell mag test..
1)BOGGER
2)SSR
3)MTR
4)SWAMPER TSL

well on the tires I have PJs on my ford super duty 250 and they are a great tire for the road. very $$$$$$ in the cost of these bad boys in the 38s. but all around great tire.

I have 33 boggers on my toy and they work well everywhere but in the sand so far. i have a snow run coming up and will let you know but im not expecting much from them. Boggers have there place.

I have the Swamper LTB's 34x10.5x15. Great tire. They are on a DD and show very little wear after 1800 miles. Front is at #20 and rear is at #18. They have been in the snow and rain on asphault and have done exceptionally well. Wont get to try them on dirt or rocks for a few more months, but am very impressed with them so far.
