so i have a 02 f250 and its time for some new tires. the tires that came on the truck are the BFG's A/Ts and i really wasnt satasified with them. i pull a 14 foot mowing trailer with two commercial lawn mowers almost everday. however i also want something that i can get though a wet field when hunting. im looking for something in a 285/75/R16. what are your guys suggestions? thanks in advance.

Toyo M-55 have been pretty great for me. Stiff sidewalls make hauling easier.

I currently run the BFG A/T and very satified. I'm curious also about why you didn't like them. Mine have a larger footprint so that would make a difference I guess.

I run the BFG A/T's as well. They have been a great tire imo. Only thing I dislike is they seem like a somewhat soft compound and have worn a little faster than I would like.

I have the 305-70-16 Goodyear MT-R's and love them. I have over 60,000 miles on them and still have 1/3 tread left on them.

I'm running Pro Comp A/T, i love them. There 285/75-16. I do know they tear the hell out of snow, and are good in mud but not deep mud.

On one truck I have BFG MT's. I've have Great success with these. I'm on my second set. First set lasted me to about 60K miles and the second set now has about 30K miles. NO flats, great traction and a pretty good ride.

On the other truck I'm trying the Toyo Open Country AT.
So far I think they are an awsome tire. Still a little new to tell, but the handleing and traction are great. Also, they are relatively quiet (and look really good too)

Previously I tried the BFG AT and I didn't like those. Looked good and traction was ok, but they wore really funny. The steering started to wander all over the road because the tires were kinda fighting each other. Swapped 'em for the MT's and voila.........The truck drove like a new truck again!

I also tried a cheaper tire. I think they were called sport king. I hated them!
Left me stranded a few times. Couple flats a day. One morning (on a holiday) walked out of the house to Two flat tires! Probly enough said.

Just my :twocents:

Are they loud on the highway, I have always wondered about the Pro Comps?

Guy's seem to like the BFG's, If you are not in the mud much, Or it's mostly the wet fields and roads I would look at the Michi's.
They are a great tire on wet roads, Highway use, sand and much more I am sure.

Good luck

the reason i didnt like the bfg's at's was because the wear seemed to go really fast and almost be uneven wear. also they didnt clear out very well in some mud. and that was even the shallower stuff.

Take a look at Mastercraft Courser C/T's. Mastercraft is a private brand of Cooper. I sell quite a few of these in NW Ohio (and run them myself). I plow snow with them. They are not noisy. And they wear well. You will find they are priced very competitively and are made here in the USA.
