I went to the Dedham Town Fair and they quoted $210. Of course, they'll match any local price so Costco's at $161. Costco has free lifetime balance while Town has free one time front end alignment.

Plus I'm not a Costco member yet so taht's another $45. If I can get Town to match Costco's deal I'll go with them - they have lifetime free internal repair for ANY damage, better than Costco.

I'm looking to do the same thing as Arthur. I've decided to go with BFG MT. I've had TrXus recommended, but I've not seen any so have only what a couple people have said to go on. I'm not going with ATs - they suck in mud (BTDT). I'm ruling out MT/Rs due to slightly higher cost and reported tread ware not being as good as BFG. I'm familiar with BFG and I've seen enough of the MT/Rs on the trail, and decided to go with BFG MTs.

Well I have owned BFG MT in the past and now have TrXus. The BFGs are crap in the mud. Barely better than an all terrain tire. Worse, they are horrid on hard, slippery surfaces. Much worse than ANY tire I've seen. I would seriously advise anybody against those tires from my personal experience.

The TrXus have been great in all conditions. Not as good as a real mudder in the mud but not far off.

And the negative side by side comment above is BS. These Rubis are locked both ends and should walk around us. If we do better with open diffs, then it is the tires, period.

a swamper is a swamper. I have seen the MTR's in action, I dont think they perform that well in mud, more oriented to dry rocks. I think the BFG MT is a nice tire.

Well, thats Johns opinion and he is free to add his to the conversation. Some people just dont like BFGs.
