    That's about what I paid for the 35s I had on my Jeep. Now I pay about $100 a corner.

      ... not for your SUV, surely? What kind of poverty rubber are you running that is only $100 / corner. Even my miata's tires run more than that -- the stock tires are $180/corner and could be improved.

        There are only four options at the size I run in the entire world. They range from $120-$500 ea and they all have a load rating of XL and a speed rating of W for hitting the triple digits on the freeway. I go cheap because they have the right ratings and with my chamber, no tires are going to last more than 20,000 miles. Pointless to shred through $500 tires IMO.

        • Tires I’m looking at are q rated. Not even rated for high speed.

              I can't peel out anyhow. Too fast.

                  Dang -- well, lucky that there are tires that fit and are reasonably cheap.

                  I drive my MX-5 like an idiot so I need sticky tires to keep me on the road. They can't keep me pointed in the right direction, but they can keep me rightsideup. I hope.

                    Mine were...more than that.

                    • But 34x10.5 is an odd size, there's a 255/80 that's roughly comparable in metric but BFG doesn't make any A/Ts in that size. Muds, yes.

                      • I want to go with the hybrid AT/mud. I’m looking at the baja atx or the bfg KOs

                        • I'll have a better answer on Sunday how the KO2s do on sand. But I didn't buy them with mud in mind, I figure if I'm ever in mud that deep I'm pulling winch rope.

                          • I’m not even going to venture into any deep mud. I’m thinking slick clay or something. I’m leaning toward something like a pre-runner style. Although there’s no desert around me, only dirt.

                            • I’m looking at a 285/75.

                                This may be not useful for you, but my buddy had BFG KO2s on his bronco and he had no trouble following (or leading) in deep snow and coastal mud.
