Very comparable to the BFG A/T. Good but not great.

Never ran them on my 350, but I had ran a set on my old ram 1500, they did their purpose just fine for me. Wear was decent, handled snow, muddy fire roads, etc pretty good too.

I completely disagree. I've had sets of both and the AT2 has out performed the bfg in every way, price, traction, hauling, longevity. I'll never own a bfg AT again.

My experience with the two, The AT2 seemed to wear a little better than my BFG KO's, they both pack in mud, but the BFG's out performed, in my opinion, in pretty much every situation. Not extreme differences, not so much to say the AT2 is a bad tire, just that it doesn't seem to have to grip on wet roads or snow, although the AT2 seemed to be a much more stable tire when pulling and on dry pavement in general. These were both 285-75-16 8 plys at 80psi on a 99 3/4 ton cummins. So for the price difference i'd have no problem running the AT2's again. Sounds like a good buy!

I currently have the at/2 tires on my dually. I have almost 11k on them. The rears are toast but the fronts Are still really good. They suck on wet roads but hook pretty hard on dry pavement.

These tires are just awful. Do not buy them. Brand new they have pretty good traction. But once they start wearing they are terrible in the snow. Also very loud on the road. I have mine for only 20,000 km (not miles) And 2 are almost bald and the other 2 are at 50 % tread.
