Time for new tires

I have a set of 37x13.50-18 pro comp extreme all terrains that ive been very happy with i have all of 52000 miles on them, but pro comp was smart enough to stop making 37s on 18 so that throws a kink into my situation. I have been looking around and i like the new style bfg mud terrains and the general grabbers look pretty good. If anyone has any experiance with either set it would be great to know.

This doesn't address the two specific tires you are asking about, but check out TreadWright tires. I bought some for my Jeep and was quite pleased with them!

Mike(Mudrunninpig on here) has 37/13.50/17 BFG KM2s on his truck he bought them new and put just over 107K miles on them. He has a dually, and rotated them the correct way by having them taken off the rims and remounted and all. he got great performance out of them. He also towed 12K pounds almost every day on them. he will def point you to them, and I will to. saw his truck LOTS of times to prove it.

107K on a set of tires? Seriously? No offense but I find that extremely hard to believe even if he ran them down to the cords.
