I would like to know also. The only thing....I want to know about the 35/12.50R15 because the 33 are only 31.4 inch diameter....and I want a little bit bigger tire than stock.

Jeromy, did you look at the BFG 285/75 size. Its a 32.9" if I recall and you can get away with using them on the stock suspension.

James, sorry, I don't have personal experience with the Pro Comps so I cant add anything about them.

no worries chris,
i am really asking because i have basically two choices for tires right now.. either i can get a set of the pro comps for 200 or i can get a set of 35" mtr's for 800 which is the better deal ? keep in mind the pro comps have just over 20K miles on them and the mtrs are new.

I have a SG stage II so I think I can get 35 with no problems. I just want to know if anyone had experience with the Pro Comp Xterrian...wear, performance, noise...etc..

I have the 33" Xterrains but they are on AR steelies. I do have to say that I have had 2 flats with these, granted one was at Paragon (my Bad) and the other a nail. But after 15 years of owning only BFG's (never a flat) I am a little troubled by these flats.

They will fit on stock alloy but you will have to adjust the steering stops.

I had those tires on my old Disco II. If I had to compare them to BFG MT and MTR they would earn last place. They are nosier then the other and does not have as good traction in snow or off-road..

Both MTR and BFG were sipped.
