Well it looks like after 72,000K I finally have to replace my rubber. (not complaining:)) But I do have a question.. I'm torn between the BFG all Terrain and the Good Year Wrangler silent armours?? I don't have a lift and do pull a trailer which both are 10 plys.. just wondering what you guys thought the better of the 2 were?? ride, traction etc...

I have had goodyear wranglers before...wouldn't buy them again. Traction was poor.

I had a set of BF Goodrich all terrains on my truck before I lifted it and i never had any problems with them. They have great traction and do well in the snow and rain. Definitely go with the BFG's.

BFG is the only choice for MT or AT IMO. I get 50K+ on MT's with a lot of pulling trailers and so on. I have never blown a BFG (250,000 miles) and they are 315-75 8 Ply I have blown two Goodyears (took them off) that I can remember and they were 285 10 Ply. Besides I work in the rubber industry and BFG is owned by Michelin:thumb: who makes the best tire on the market and it that is clear in ther facilities too!

Toyos are nice tires as well. I have a set of 37x13.50 Open Country M/Ts on my truck and they are great so far, but I think BigBear would be better off with the BFG's for towing and wear.

I used goodyear for a while (a goodyear manager was a relative) never was impressed. A buddy talked me into gettin some BFG's, 4 set's of tires on 3 diffrent rigs and I don't have a single complaint. They seem to last longer and have good traction.

thanks guys... I have had BFG's just on a half ton but never on a 3/4 ton... was making sure since reliabilty is a big factor of choice... I need top all year round perfomance as it is a major daily driver :)

Almost twice as much......Cooper (company who makes Toyo) makes and AT and MT in their brand and is just as good as a Toyo.......but I would run BFG A/T's......I haven't heard to many good things about Goodyear A/T just the MTR
sorry to burst your bubble man but cooper has nothing to do with toyo and i paid 1400 Can for my 35" m/t's . The coopers werent any cheaper

hey just to help you out i work in a good year shop and i am running goodyears just cause i get them cheap they have a rougher ride to them and unless your getting the mtr's wich are only good for mudd they don't have the best traction
go with bfg's a/t prolly the best

I was told if you haul to make sure on the 3/4 / 1 tons to make sure your load range on the tire is at least a D. I've been known to be wrong before though...

I agree, Maybe look into Mich. If not BF's are always a good choice.

I just put on Bridgestone Dueler APT 3 Load Range E. Good traction and excellent wet weather performance and very quiet. I paid about $129 per tire for 6 of them.
