The king of A/T tires.

I will be in the market for a set of A/T tires soon. I have narrowed my choices down to the BFGoodrich A/T, Toyo A/T, and the ProComp A/T. I want to keep the stock oversized tire size (285/75) but switch to a larger rim also (20in) I am riding the Toyo M/T's right now, which are great, but if I am going to be dropping alot of money on the next set I want the 50,000 mile warranty. The M/T's have only been on 26,000 which is understandable for being so soft. I can get the BFG's for about $320, the Toyo's for about $260 and ProComps for around $220. If any of you have had these tires could you please put your two cents worth in? How are they one the highway and off road in the deep mud and snow? Thanks everyone!

Ive Had My Set For About 3k Miles They Seem Pretty Good So Far, This Is My First Set Of Tires That Arent Straight Up Street Tires So Im Still Getting Used To Them. High Speed Cornering Is A Little Loose But I Dont Drive A Nascar So I Think I Can Deal With That. I Hear That The Best Feature Is Long Tread Life. My Freind Has Got Almost 80,000 With His Set. They Have Great Traction And Look Really Nice I Like

I have 315x75 16 BFG A/T KO's (range D) and they are awesome. My only gripe with them is the load range. There is no E in my size. (Would be if I had 17" wheels). They are phenominal on all actual road surfaces in wet and dry, in the dirt they are great and I haven't had a chance to run 'em in the mud or sand. In snow they really shine. This past winter I tried to get stuck with over 8000lbs of truck and I couldn't. I pulled out 6-7 cars that were stuck while I'm pulling in either snow or icy roads. I don't have a single BAD thing to say, other than the load range. I also got 'em for a pretty decent price. $195 per tire with free mounting/balancing (b/c I got the warranty). You'll love 'em. They are also 150% quieter than my old 36" TSL Radials.
