Default couple of tires on my list, pros/cons?

hey guys, theres a couple of tires on my list. my truck will be a daily driver. im looking to get 33x12.50x15s. noise WILL NOT bother me. i would like to know some pros/cons on these tires. mostly on how much mileage i will get out of them. also on how good they are in mud. there are no rocks where i live.

(these arent in any order)

1) MasterCraft Courser MTs
2) BFG KM2's
3) Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs (just seen these the other day)
4) Nitto Trail Grappler MT (if i got these id have to get a 17 inch rims instead of 15)
5) Maxxis Buckshot Mudders
6) Cooper STT
7) Pro Comp Mud Terrain

thanks

um i currently have the courser tires, i like them, they get me through some thick crap, but i personally feel they arent beefy enough of a look for me, but they quite too and wear slowly

The duratracs or the STTs will probably have the most mileage, the KM2s are obviously more aggressive mud terrain so the mileage won't be as good but they will perform better off road. Those would be the 3 I'd pick fun in that list, all depends on if you are willing to trade life for performance. I've also heard really great things about the Dick Cepek Mud Countrys.

The Duratracs are amazing off road, but they are heavy, well, the E-range ones are. Around 55lbs each, so take weight into consideration when making your choice.

I love the look of the MTRs. Only complaint about them is cost. Still, helluva tire.

BUCKSHOT MUDDERS FTW....... if not then get the duratracs. They are a great affordable tire. Thats what im going to put on mine.

BFG KM2 all day. i have this on my jeep, but i was debating between these or the MTR's. i would reccomend both having only used KM2's though i can only use first hand knowledge on those. they work superbly well in the mud.

hankook mt's are good they hook up throw mud and are actually a mud tire that has decent life do not get maxxis or nitto they are shit

----------

and for the price of km2's you might as well just buy interco m16's

I would go with the all terrains in the bfg. If this is your DD and will be on street alot. They still look agressive and will last much longer than a mud tire
