    Ive been searching for some new 33x12.5r15 tires. I don't have deep pocks, but I also want to get an quality product. I have found these tires on amazon for $144, that's a crazy good price, and it's getting good ratings, but being so cheap, I have my doubts. Has anyone used/bought these tires, and what are your thoughts?

    I'm assuming that's 144 each tire. BFG a/t KO2 33 12.5 R15 I found on tire rack were 179.00 each. That's not much more than what your looking at.

    Tires are probably the last place to penny pinch regardless of vehicle type. They are probably fine but I want to know what I am using is well tested and reliable. Safety First.

    That’s a good deal, the cheapest I’ve been able to find ko2’s was 188 shipped to your door, but how are ko2’s in the mud?

    I had the ko's and they were good. It's an all terrain tire

    X2, I would at the very least look into the KM2's if you want a true mud tire. Although I personally am not a fan of the BFG's they are good for their price. If you want a good mud tire look at the Maxxis. I actually have found some good deals locally on them, so it might be worth looking them up, but I have to say if you want to save money, you may go for more of a AT because they will potentially last longer if you drive on the road.

    What’s up bro? No love for the Cooper STT Pro’s? Mine do very well in the mud, maybe too well, and good road manners, including in the rain!

    I haven't really tested mine yet. I have only driven back and forth to work, and it hasn't rained yet. I absolutely love the tires so far. I am impressed that they are so quiet. I haven't used them yet in mud or even wheeling, so I cannot really recommend them yet, but so far I am a fan. These are more streetable than the Maxxis though. Just by looking, you can tell that the Maxxis is a way better mud tire, but probably not as good as the STT on the road.
