    hey guys whats the difference between the "Radial All-Terrain" and the "All-Terrain". i bought a set of 35" Radial All-terrains... is the sidewall slightly different? it looks like the radial version doesnt have the aggressive sidewall

    yep, less sidewall traction on the radial and it also does not have a lip on the tire to help protect the rim.

    technically yes, they dont make a bias ply bfg a/t that i know of, but one is labeled on the sidewall with the words "radial all terrain". must be just a more street friendly version :thinking:

    Several years back they added the bead protection and slightly tweaked the tread pattern ( clocked it a little on the carcass ) .

    Both are "radial" tires , the new ones SIMPLY just don't say radial anymore . And teh new name is BFG All Terrain T/A KO ( Muds changed to Mud Terrain KM ) .
