Mickey Thompson vs. BFG All Terain Tires

It has come time for me to replace the Toyo Tires that are on my 2005 F350.

I have run BFG All Terain T/A's on my previous F150 and F250, and have never had any complaints about them except maybe the life expectancy and cost. I was talking with my local tire guy this morning and he recommended Mickey Thompson's equavalent tire. Told me that he has put it on his buddies Escalade and Navigator as well as P/U's.

I have read about MT tires, but have never heard any feedback from people who have used them.

I run 35" on my truck at present and plan to do the same with the new. The truck is used for holiday's mostly, hauling a 30 Travel Trailer, as well as the occasional weekend trips to HomeDepot.

I would appreciate anyone's comments,

I run the BFG also and have not tried the Mickey's yet. If you are looking to get new tires by the end of the month I would go with Pro Comp Xtreme all terrain. The price is right especially with a $75 rebate. I have been pricing quite a few for people on here and the prices are very good.

I have run them and they started falling apart on me. MT wouldn't do squat for me, so I worked with the tire dealer to get all four of them replaced under their warranty. Here's a pic below of what was happening. Mine were the Baja MTZ's and they have 0 mileage warranty through MT, and the only reason I got anything was because I bought the road hazard on them through the tire place. (They wouldn't offer it to me on the ProComp Xtreme AT's...) Go figure!

Check out Nitto Terra Grapplers. They rock, i have 12,000 miles on mine and they still look like new. If you want an all terrain they are better than the BFG's. I think the BFG's are way to soft and wear out way to quick. If i didn't drive on the interstate so much i would be running there mud grapplers, they just look sick!

can not speak for the mickeys on a ford had them on a Toyota many moons ago and got pretty good wear.

sorry but i have to disagree with that after 20,000 miles my nittos are about shot, loud as all h_ll, getting ready to replace them with BFG's I got 45,000 on my last set, got talked into the nitto's by the tire dealer

I have always ran BFG I just would not look anywhere else. I have the new mud terrian, KM2. They look great, they clean out well, great in the snow,but not on ice and snow pack. I went to A/T this winter. I have heard bad stuff about everyone else, I have witnessed it also.

Have fun with the hunt
