BF Goodrich or Toyo ??

I think I have my choice of tire narrowed down to BFG all terrains and Toyo open country. I'm leaning towards the BFG... any advice? Which is most quiet? Best traction? Tread wear? Is BFG made in the USA ? Thanks for the help.

I'm on like my 3rd or 4th set of BFG all terrains (on different trucks). Currently looking for a SD but they will be the first thing I slap on.

I have hankook ATM tires on my powerstroke and they are amazing. I have BF's on my v10 and I got it stuck yesterday in clay like mud. It was lame, they became mud-packed slicks.

My old CJ7 had a set on it when I bought it. First trip out I slid from ditch to ditch in the mud. I took them off the next day. They worked out great for my tow pig and I still use em for that. Just not the jeep...

i would say the BF A/T's get better mileage, but the TOYO M/T's are a far superior tire. i had a set of E rated 315s on my 06 Duramax and they were amazing to say the least. i couldnt hear them at all on the road and traction in sand, mud, snow and ice blows BF A/T's out of the water! oh, and i never balanced the TOYO's either. no vibration at all

I've always had BFG's and love the traction and quiet road noise. I also like the squared off stance. Just put on a new set and have some wobble issues....but may be a balancing issue.

Thank you guys... keep the opinions coming! The Toyo MTs you are talking about- are they aggressive tread, or an all terrain type? When I was at the tire shop today I didn't pay attention, all i saw was toyo open country on the sidewall.
