bfg or nitto all terrains?

i want to put some 35s on my 350 dually and want something that will last and be able to handle a little off road. i have owned the nitto terra grapplers on a crew cab f150 4x4 and they were awesome. looked great, good wear and and handled off road perfect. i have heard good things about the bfg a/t ko but have never owned them. i know this truck is much heavier and i assume i will need a tire that can handle the weight. towing is not much of a concern as i only tow about 7k every other month. so which tire will be the all around better choice, the terra grappler or the a/t ko? thanks

I have the BFG a/t's on my truck, never had anything else since we bought it so can't compare, sound about the same as your nittos. Not exactly the quietest tire ever invented though.

I've never had the nitto's but have owned 3 sets of BFG AT's now and love them.

the bfg km2's are a tire to consider. mudrunninpig has like 80k on his set or something outrageous like that and his truck is a dually.

i would say BFGoodrich over Nitto Terra's any day. you could however look into the new Nitto Trail Grappler. heard good about them.

Sorry to awaken an old thread... I've worn out the factory Goodyears at 22k and looking to replace.

2008 F250 KR 20" stock wheels. The guys at 4wheel are recommending 285/65R20 BFG AT T/A KO, Poly Lift Kit front (2.5" I believe), 4" RR lift, ES9000 front shocks.

What do y'all think? Does anyone have a similar setup and can post pics? I drive mainly city/hwy and go to the lake; not much offroading...

Thanks in advance!

If BFG made a true 35x12.50, I would have put that on. The 325/60R20 worried me a little being almost 13 inches wide. Might go with the Toyo MT's next time.

ran bfg at/ko on a 350 and have the nitto on excursion now.....both have been great tires,,,really stayed on top of the bfg's with 5-6k rotation interval and had half tread left at 25k with some heavy burn outs on them...the nittos seem to be doing really well and wearing nice and even as well , no noticeable tread change in 10k yet

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.
