BF Goodrich AT mileage- what did you get?

I would like to hear from thoes of you who have used BFG All-terrains, and what kind of mileage you got out of them... I need new tires on my F350 dually, and like the BFG, but hate to spend so much on a tire if it's not gonna last a while... how do they work with a heavy truck like mine, running 10K lbs most of the time? Any sugjestions on other tires, with simular tread, with good wear/ride?

Also, can I go any bigger on tires size with a dually, if not, what spacer would be needed in the rear for what size larger tire? My understanding is that the 235/85/16 is the largest possible with out sidewall rub...

I had some 285/75/16's on my 01 z-71 and got 65k out of them. But I drive slow, don't corner fast and always coast well before stop lights - so I'm not hard on tires.

wear is a concern for me... I drive twisty country roads daily, it's 30 mile round trip to work each day, and I ate steer tires like crazy on my K-30 I've been drivin for the past few years, but I also drive like a bat outta he77, hard in corners, etc... maybe if I just slow down a little, I'll save tires!

What about over size on a dually? I need to be able to reliably work the truck, but how do bigger tires affect a dually, if you need to use spacers to go bigger?

well i hav had my fair share of tires. the BF GoodRich AT 235/85 16 KO are the ones i got the reason why is they have a tripple side wall. you need that if yuo tow otherwise it feels like you are rideing around on marbles. i have gotten 55,000 on the rear duals but the front maby half that got them for $135 each

I'll never own another set of them. I balanced and rotated them evry 8-10K. could not keep them from wearing horribly. I try to treat my tires pretty well, and I normally get between 75-90K out of a Well Made set of tires. I think I got 50K out of the BFG A/T's before they were absolutly undrivable.
I've always had good luck with Michelins
