Default Trying to pick a tire is tough

Ok. so i am trying to figure out which tires to buy and i just cannot decide. Any of yall have experience with the tires below? They have good reviews on 4 wheel parts, i just cant decide. lol. going to be running a 31" Mud tire. I am not worried about longevity of the tires as i only drive it about 50 miles a week plus my offroad excursions. sees almost as much mud as it does concrete.

Pro Comp Tires Part 75031 - 31x10.50R15, Xtreme MT2 - 4 Wheel Parts

What kind of terrain do you wheel the most? (mud, rocks, sand etc.)


Personally, I don't like directional tires, so I'd be scratching the claw off the list right away.

mainly mud and trails, but some rocks are mixed in (Getting in and out of the trails where we go are mainly large rocks)

Do you go mainly on trails? Is this a daily driver? Do you live where there streets?

This past October I bought a set on GT Radial MT. They are private label tires from Discount Tire Direct. The have a such an aggressive tread and have been wearing great the past 5-6 months. At $113 a piece you cant beat them! I HIGHLY suggest anyone looking for a set of MT to check them out. Oh and Free shipping!!!

Look on Discount Tire Directs eBay page as well, the usually run sales through eBay that they don't on their website.
