I see a couple people here have the ProComp tires. I'm thinking of getting me a set as my tires could pass for slicks.

Anyone here good/bad things about them?

They have a great deal of buy 3 get 1 free going on right now.

I find ProComps wear pretty fast. I had the AT's and the Xtrerrains and both seemed to go a little fast for me. Especially the Xterrains.

Another thing is, if you can get a hold of a Off Road Adventures Magazine from maybe four months ago and take a look at the price of the tires then, you will notice that they raise the prices right before they put on the 3 for 1 special.

They suckered me twice but PepBoys had a real 3 for 1 on any tire any brand and I never went back to ProComp again.

Just my two cents though. Others may really like them.

I have the Xterrain's on my Jeep. They are a very soft rubber, so if you drive on the street a lot, don't expect many miles out of them. Same goes for most if not all the ProComp line (I think they all use the same compound).

I have seen people say that over and over again, but i looked into it, it's not the case, at least not for the place that I buy tires (National Tire and Wheel). ProComp also sold me buy 3 get 1 free back a few months ago at the 4WD Jeep fest, such as great deal I couldn't pass them up. Came out to be like $135 per tire for 35x12.50x15's.

Off Road Adventures is a 4WheelParts magazine. I was referring specifically to that store chain. Sorry for not clarifying. It wasn't till a few years ago that I started seeing ProComps being sold at other stores around here. I normally just link ProComp to 4WheelParts.

Well, ProComp is 4Wheel parts, but they do sell that at other stores, though, mostly off-road related shops.

I have Procomp AT's (with the severe weather rating). I like them, they are good in the mud, as goes for the wear of the tires I rotate mine every 5000kms. They are definatley not as aggressive looking like the BFG ATKO, but they are also not as expensive. I havent tried them out in the snow yet, but I got a good deal Buy 3 get 1 free. I would reccommend them as long as you keep rotating them every oil change.

Actually, if you read the fine print, they want you to pay retail/MSRP to get the buy 3, get 1 free deal. So while it looks like they are raising the prices (that is what I thought, too), they are actually just not discounting them at all. Probably still a better deal than buying a set at their standard discounted rate, but there are plenty of better tires out there, IMO.

Cool, this is why I asked.

Back to more digging I guess.

My problem is I only drive 13 miles round trip to work and back. So I don't need a tire that's going to last me 60,000 miles. I just want a good OR tire that will get me through the muck and won't break the bank. :)

^^^ Complete crap. I have yet to find one person who has bought them a 2nd time.

If you don't put a lot of miles on the X, Pro Comp is a fine tire for the money.

Also look into the Maxxis, but stay away from the Buckshot mudders.

For looks and price, the Xterrains arent bad for the amount of travel you need. I think if I am not mistaken that they also have an Xterrain Mud Terrain? That might be some good aggressive tread.

You might also want to take a look at the Nitto All Terrains: I run them on the Burb and have been very impressed. Someone here runs them on their X and have been equally impressed.
I think I paid $135 each plus tax for the D range 285/75/16 at Discount Tire.
Your mileage sounds like ours: the tires will rot out before wearing out.
