    Hi guys! Can you guys recommend a set of off-road tires for my 2008 Dodge Nitro R/T? I am currently checking out Mickey Thompson Tires' Baja Claw TTC. Any other recommendations?

    I’ve had great success with BFG AT’s and Hankook AT’s. They both wear well, are relatively quiet and still offer good traction on and off road.

    love the look of the Baja Claws and i'm sure they perform well off road, they may be a little noisey on the highway ?.

    My first mudders were WAY loud on the highway. The BFG TA-KO2 I have now are very quiet in comparison. However, I have not had them off road yet...

    MT’s will be VERY loud on road, especially at highway speed. You’ll need a louder stereo.;)
    I ran Swampers, Dunlop and General MT’s on my Jeeps and the Swampers sounded like an inbound Huey over 45mph.

    I'm a huge fan of BF Goodrich. The tires that KansasNitro and Scar0 mentioned are awesome tires. I have ran BFG's on nearly every truck I've owned. Never been disappointed in them. ;)
