Chris,
It's been a while now... so what do you think about the Intercos?

I am looking to upgrade my stock tires (265/75/16 BFG AT) to 33s maybe a SUPER SWAMPER TRXUS M/T or BFG MT or?

I absolutely love the LTB's off-road. I really can't imagine anything better in the mud. However for an on road tire they really are miserable. They howl on the highway and are incredibly stiff. If you want two sets of tires, I say go for them. If you don't, I wouldn't consider them.

My friend has the Trxus M/T's on his jeep. They seem like a great tire. If I were to do it again though, I think I might go for the Toyo MT.

I have trXus MTs on my Disco2... I've gone through 10 of them to get the perfect '4' ... hopefully their quality control has changed since I got mine, but between the 6, I've had a few with broken belts inside, a few that couldn't balance, and ended up wearing down to almost no tread in about 10k miles, and one where the bead started separating from the tire..

But, when they are balanced nicely, they perform great on road, and they do perform pretty nicely offroad as well... I usually air down to 15-20, and they clear out real nice, dig hard, have a lot of traction on rocks... and I've never had a problem with them on ice/snow either.

I have 285/75/16 BFG MTs on my D90, and so far they are great.. haven't gotten a chance to wheel them yet.. but I've seen them perform offroad on other trucks, and they do fine.

SSR's preform just as well off road as the LTB's and they are a lot better on road. Once you get them balanced correctly they handle and ride well even on wet pavement... I really like my SSR's I change between my RRC and D90. At first I had a hard time balancing them and they were really bad, it was like they weren't balanced at all when going above 60. But after a few months and several tries balancing them my local LR dealer (the last place I tried) got them balanced well.

Once I don't have a 1 hour each way commute on country roads everyday for school I'm going to get SSR's for my D2 as well...

x2 on the SSR's, I have them and have put about 800miles on them so far. I love these tires and they really aren't that bad on-road and off-road performaance is great from what other people say, I haven't tested them personally yet though

Don't Rule out the Firestone Destinations!

I had a set of BfG all terrians and bought the Destinations and love them. If you look at the comparisons at www.tirerack.com you will see they rate them one of their best MT's Reveiws were great too!

I managed to run through a set of SSRs in about 6k miles. Just my experiences, take that for what it`s worth.

If you ran down a set of tires in 6k something is seriously wrong with your alignment.

DAMN! I've currently got 35x10.5 SSR's on my truck, but big chunks are beginning to fall off them each time I wheel. I was hoping that those might be an option.

I had those firestons on my DII for a while. They were horrible in snow on/off road and scarry on wet roads. They were fine in the dirt and on rocks, but seemed to damage easily. Overall I did not like them for my California/Nevada use. They were replaced after a few thousand miles with BFG's which perform to my liking.

The Firestones seem to get good reviews back east, and poor reviews out west. Different kinds of wheeling I guess.
