I ran through 365/65-16 (14.5x34.5) Toyos pretty fast, about 2~2.5 years. I've had 315/75-16 BFG ATs since April 2011 and they are about half worn the last time I measured them. Despite the shorter life, if Toyo still made those 365s, I'd still be rolling them.

Ive never got very good mileage from bfgs. Trying the goodyear duratracs now. My. Tires last about 2-3 yrs typically but I do not drive much. Just pulled my bfg at's, approx 4-5 32nds left and probably around 20-25k on them.

I run 305/60/20 Toyo Open Country AT's on my new 6.7. I've got 35k on them and they still look pretty good. I used the exact same tire on the Nissan Titan I had before this. I have always gotten about 50k out of them. I went through 5 sets on that truck, traded it with 240k on it. I just make sure I keep the air pressure right and rotate them every 10k or so.
