37 for 17s?

I live in Florida and will be wheeling the East Coast. My driving is as an offroad toy, its not my DD so road manners aren't a concern. I'm looking for something thats good in the mud and east coast rocks. I'm looking for the best bang for my buck.

I have been looking at the Super Swamper Irok 37 Bias and the Toyo Open Country M/T. Both seem to be around the $350 each range.

What else should I be looking at?

Been real happy w my 37" MTR's.

Give a look to the Pitbull Rocker and the Mickey Thompson Baja Claw

Florida mud can act like GA clay mud, thick, sticky, and slick. But in FL quite often there is no hard bottom, just the water table.

I didnt know they were still making the Baja Claws in 37s, I thought they phased out many of those sizes infavor of the MTZs

Plus 1 with nitto tires trail grapplers. Inexpensive, but surely can perform and have the job done.

For your kind of wheelin' you should give the Pitbull Rockers a look as well.

I'd recommend staying away from the toyos. They do have great road manners, but you aren't worried about that.

For east coast rocks, my mtrs hook up well. Also, have seen buddies do very well with claws and pit bull rockers.

everybody I know that runs IROKs in bias ply says they are not good to buy because once you have them you don't want anything else of your two choices if strictly play rig SS if DD or semi DD Toyos.

I have the bias Iroks and love them. They have been great off road, and fine on road. They also are very light at like 68 lbs each.

Offroad only? Lots of heavy, thick mud? You need a tire with huge voids. You need an Interco TSL, Bogger, or Irok. All the other tires mentioned are great tires, but are a compromise in that they all try to at least have some road manners by way of tighter spacing between the lugs. They will all fill up with mud and become slicks waaaay faster than the Intercos.

Just re-read your post. Go with the bias iroks. They fit your description better, are lighter, and tougher. As a bonus, they just look fucking badass.

for an offroad toy in the Florida mud/muck I would go with Genius tires, I have seen these in action and there is not much that can stop them, other than driving into a canal.
