Default Trail rig tires

Well i am in the middle of a rebulid on my cj5. I am looking to get a new set of shoes for it. Something in the 33"-35" range. I have in the past thefollowing tires and dont want any of thses again. 33x10.50x15 boggers,10-15 powercats way back in the day,315/75/16 bfg mt's,31.10.50x15 bfg mt's, and lastly 16x35x15 thornbirds. This is a strictly trail jeep very little on road use. was looking at the 34x10.50x15 ltb's or 33x13.50x15 iroks. or 34x9.50x15 super swampers . thanks in advance for the input .

agree 33x13.50 LTB or the 35x12.50 LTB

I ran some 33x12.50/15 RVT's back in the day, very reasonably priced and was very happy with, they wore really well and got just enough traction, and were light enough that I didn't have issues breaking parts on my D35 TTB.

The LTBs, or those 34x9.5 swampers if you din't need floatation. The skinny swampers are awesome anywhere there's a bottom.

Scratch that apparently sigma discontinued the RVT and now offer a "Mud Claw". But I can get those in the 33" only flavor for $130 a piece in a 15" rim. They do offer a 35" but in 17" rim.

They have poor lateral traction, so for a trail vehicle that will see sidehills, they aren't the best choice.

34x9.50 TSL has CRAZY deep tread and the traction is quite impressive, as long as you don't need floatation, and keep your rims as skinny as you can.

I have several rigs with Iroks, and love them for trail use. Decent in the mud, great in sand or rocks. But I am only a tire store manager, so what do I know?
