G'day Fellas,

BF Goodrich (Michelin) redesigned the 'not that well accepted' Rugged Trail T/A and came up with the 'Rugged Terrain T/A'.

There isn't a great deal of feed back on how the 'so called' improved design has performed. They have been out for a while now, so I'm hoping there is enough of you fellas that may have tried them or know of how they have been performing on our torque/size/weight trucks.

I realise they are a hybrid 'H/T come A/T' and are more designed for roads as opposed to Trails/Offroad. The boasting by BFG makes me think they would be a good towing tyre on the black top and gravel/rough dirt roads as they would be a stronger design than the H/Ts around.

If they fit the bill, I would be looking at the: LT285/75R 16 'E' Load index 126 R with Single Wheel Max Load of 3,750@80psi (Part# 31608). What I can't find is 'what is the side wall ply/strength. There are Load Range 'E' (10 ply) tyres out there but are let down by weak side walls and really should be "D" rated tyres in my opinion.

How do they handle the high torque transfered to them by our big heavy diesel trucks?
