    Check out Proline trenchers, these are a good all terrain tire. Proline also has good wheels, you can get some tires pre-glued to the rims, beadlocks, and rims you have to glue.

    Proline or RPM for wheels and definitely proline tires. My opinion


    Beatings will continue until compliance is gained
    uh oh.... that didn't sound good

    Badlands are also a very good tire.

    I hate to rain on the parade, but the tires and wheels you got out of the box are you're best bet for all around use. I'd look more at suspension, or changing to a center diff to increase performance.

    I like the Proline Switch for all terrain use. They last longer than the Trenchers. They are what I am currently running on my truck.

    Yep, same here (That is if a slayer counts lol) I really like the switch. It may not be "the best" on grass, but it's great on paavment and dirt, and gravel..... I got mine on proline epic beadlock rims, so even if you didn't like the switch, just take them off and put on some other tire! Plus they give the truck a real good "rough and tumble" kind of look. (I just had to put he pic in with my mud flaps LOL) Just my .2 cents!
