Miles you guys are getting out of MT/AT tires

Wanted to know what kinda miles you guys are getting out of your mud terrains/ all terrains. About to do drop that all mighty dollar on a 35" tire up-grade and wanted to know how long these things are lasting. Thanx

Maxxis Bighorns here,
they have 30K on them rotated ever 3-5K and are a little over half worn.

You should get at least 30-40K out of almost any radial mud tire IMO, the key is rotating.
The problem is, the more miles you put on them the less effective they are in the mud they are meant for, so most replace early to keep the performance where the want it. Also the mount of offroad miles plays a factor, rocks and tires don't really mix well.
Ill probably put another 10K on mine and then toss them on craigslist and up it to 37's.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

25K+ on my mud grapplers and they're still at probably 70%
5 way rotation when I think about it and have time (so not as often as I should)

Mickey Thompson MTZ's (35 x 12.5) at ~23k and 40% tread remains, minor cuts in the lugs but no big chunks missing. I'll get about 35k out of them in my unlimited. Not a long life but damn they perform well. I'm torn on whether to buy another set. At that price point I can pick pretty much anything I want. I might run a set of Super Swamper SSR's next. Haven't really made up my mind.
