Default I need some new tires

Right now i have some worn out Pro Comp All Terrains and they just dont cut it off road. What kind of tire would you guys suggest that is agressive but also semi highway friendly as well as cost effective? im looking for some 35x12.5 r15's

Very good Kweezy, you have my vote! Am not an off road type, myself, to offer an opinion about the tires, reliable help will be along. "Getting Post count up". Have to remember that one.

I doubt he's looking to get his post count up. He already has 1,500 so he's been here a while. He's just telling you that for all of the things you listed that you were looking for...youre not gonna find a "cost-effective" tire. You're gonna dish out some dough for quality. Just have to accept it.

Kind of depends on what you are doing off-road,I have BFG mud,and they are fair as far as price,loud driving down the road,but when I need them they throw the mud,other down side is when it is dry and in the hills they dig-in more than grip,so a A/T tire would be better for that use,as far as off brand names my buddy runs coopers and loves them,another buddy don't remember the brand but he got his tires at Les Schwab.I'm getting older so brand name really does not matter that much,(besides can always go blackwall) so will be looking into more of a non brand name.

But for every day driving hard to beat a A/T tire.
Bad thing about tires is you can't get it all,you will always be giving some thing up.
Should also say my 4x4 I do not drive every day.

I would suggest joining up with one of the many forums that are dedicated to off road 4 wheeling there you can get good advice from people with a lot of experience on this topic.

Does your brake lights work? If not I would suspect the brake light switch or the wiring going to it has a problem. This is a safety feature that will not alow you out of park until the problem is fixed. Get under the dash with a light and check the wires going into the switch at the top of the brake pedal.

If it isn't a fuse then is has to be the Power Control Module. The PCM controls everything that has failed.
