Dallas, bud I know I'm gonna get hammered for this, but.....
I wouldn't waste my money on BFG's unless you're getting a helluva deal. The ones I had sucked in the rain, sucked in the mud, sucked in gravel.... If you got the $$ I'd go Nitto or Toyo. I have a couple friends with Cooper's and Mastercrafts ( Same tire, different name) and they love them as well. My .02

get the a/ts or if you like the look go with the mud-terrain km2 they work just about the same everywhere as the a/t

I'm gonna get hammered too, but oh well.


I wont EVER run a set of those BFG A/T's on my truck. Not even if they were given to me free.

I could have bought any tire I wanted, I chose the Toyo Open Country A/T's.

They are 285/75/17 (34-11.50) and balanced out with less than 1/4 oz. per tire. The ride is excellent.
