BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO - Opinions?

I have to replace the stock tires on my 08 250 6.4L with 20" wheels.

I'm living in Ontario and winter is bearing down on us - I need something that is going to stick to the road in heavy snow. I need to make a quick decision.

I'm getting BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO (275/65/R20) pricing for $383 mounted per tire with Canadian Tire.

Can anyone suggest a better tire or another option for that kind of money?

I live near the USA border so it's easy for me to get tires shipped to upstate NY but I'd have to pay extra to have the tires mounted.

What do you think of buying used 20" tires through the forum?

Please comment.

Thanks in advance...

D

I had these tires on my truck. They had better grip than the factory Wrangler ATS but they wore very uneven and fast. I had the truck aligned and multiple times and they balanced pretty good. Rotated every 1,000 miles. I do all city driving so that may factor into the wear. These are great tires on lighter vehicles but I wouldn't put them on a heavy truck. I have the Nitto Trail grapplers now. I know its a mud terrain tire but they are wearing much better and the tread seems to be harder. Traction isn't as good on the road as the BFGs but thats to be expected of any mud tire. I would try Nitto Terra Grappler. My friend has them on his Ram 2500 and they just grab the road and wear very nice. Good luck!

I was considering the Terra Grappler off of the Discount tire site.

I will check out the shipping and mounting options if I send them to Upstate NY. Thanks for the tip.

Agreed, running them now and they have exceeded my expectations, No problem with BFG's I've ran them in the past and wouldn't be opposed to running them again but i believe goodyear hit a home run with the duratracs IMO.

I had BFG AT's on my 01 f250 I put 55k on them. If I didn't get my current truck I would have driven them thru another CNY winter. And I just ordered a set for my dually today.
I have had them on a couple of other trucks as well never a problem,rain, snow, moderate off roading.

I just tried to add up how many sets of BFG AT's I've bought over the last 19 years or so years on all the trucks I've owned, it's atleast 10 or 11 between all the "work trucks" and "toys". I strayed once and bought a set of Bridgestone Dueler At's....BFG's are hands down the best tire out there. that's the only tire I'll put on a truck. They handle good on the road, have enough bite to keep up with what most MT's would do when I need it and tread wear is excellent. My current set has 31,000 miles on them and show minimal wear.

BFG's are great for everything EXCEPT gravel roads. I live in a place where you have to travel 300km each way, to leave home and come back, to get anywhere civilized. Gravel eats these tires way faster then a GY Duratrac. Softer rubber. However as for snow, BFG's and the Duractrac are the top 2 by far.

I can only dream of living that remote. Well done.
