WhiteD90-what tire size?

As you guys have seen I am putting my defender up for sale. With the 3:54 gears going back in and the defender now a mild wheeler, what tire size do you recommend and why. I've got a set of SG 15x8 black wheels that the tires are going on so only tires that come in 15" rim sizes.

My top choices are:

1) 33x12.50 BFG Mud Terrains
2)33.12.50 Goodyear MTRs
3)35x12.50 BFG Mud Terrains
4)35x12.50 Goodyear MTRs

With 3.54's I'd stick with a 33" .... I haven't ran the MTR yet, but love the BFG MT's I have on my trucks... have heard some negative reviews of MTRs once the thread starts wearing off. People I know who have 35's w/ 3.54's complain about lack of power.

So my vote is for #1
