BFGoodrich or Goodyear?

BFG KM2 or Goodyear Wrangler MTR?

37/12.50R17 is the size. (Truck is 08 f350 CC, dually,4x4)
Will see lots of snow,ice,highway you name it.

BF is ~$40 more per tire.

What says you?

I think BFG's suck... they get to 1/2 tread and dont grip anything, REALLY bad in snow/sleet.

This truck came into my shop a while ago to get the windows tinted. I see him on campus often and just saw he put on some of those new good year MTR kevlar tires. they must be pretty good in the snow from all the snow wheeling pictures he has that this picture came from I just nabbed off his facebook. pretty sure these are 37x12.5r17

I had a set of the bfg's on my truck and they sucked in light mud or heavy snow. Mine were 33 15.50x16.6 wouldn't recommend them.

I love my BFGs. Never liked Goodyears but never tried their MTs . I dont use the truck for much 4 wheeling but they grip muddy farm roads and fields

The goodyear mtrs with kevlar have gotten a bad name on the org for some reason...not sure why.

I do like the look of the older gy mtrs though, the new kevlar ones look kinda strange imo. The older mtrs are on my list.

The mtr with kevlar are only D rated, the mtr (no kevlar) has a E rating in 37".

Does anyone know which is the narrower of the two- in real world measurements?
