New tires BFG rugged trail vs all terrain???

hello new to the forum....
I've got ~93 000km on my f250... and i've currently got bfg 265/70/15 rugged trail....was looking at getting another set of these or the all terrains???

I'd really appreciate any advice....I don't do very much off roading....but there's lots of gravel roads and snow and ice up there in the great white north....

I have looked over lots of posts about tires....and most say that the all terrains are very good....but i didn't see much on the rugged trail....

are the all terrains good on the highway???? road noise??? compaired to the rugged trails???

thanks alot for your time

Welcome to the forum Gwar... I've got the factory original Rugged Trails on mine still... What I can tell you about them is some of the nasty rocky, rutty, nasty gravel forest roads I take this thing hunting on... The tires have performed flawlessly... The rest of the time I'm on asphault or concrete much like you... When it does come time to replace them I will be going with the Rugged Trails again...

I love my BFG A/Ts...very little to no road noise, good highway ride, great in the snow and sand and minor off roading...that is about the most my tires see.

My last 2 trucks, bfg all terrian, have been the only tire I have bought. Unfortunatly I had to stray to another tire brand due to unforseen circumstances, and I do not like them. This set wears out....back to bfg all terrian!!! As far as noise, very little. The bfg a.t. is a good all around tire, on highway, gravel, or dirt. Unless you really need an aggressive tread ( mud terrian ), the a.t. would be my choice.

Rugged trails on my last truck where horrid for me. I could not get any traction compared to when I bought the A/T's.

I Loved my A/T's and Would gladly buy another set, but I did not care for my rugged trails at all.

just my 0.02 cents

I just got a set of BFG A/T's and I have put about 2000 miles on them so far and I really like them good in the sand and quiet on the road not the best in the mud but I try my hardest to stay out of that so they are good for me

You won't go wrong with either one of those. Rugged trail gets a little more mileage. Not much because the A/Ts are great mileage tires too. A/Ts are a lot more sure footed off road. They like to toss gravel though. And they cost a little more than the R/T because they are so popular.
