    Anybody else have a set of these under there rig? I'm getting close to needing some new tires and was wondering what you guys think of the bfgs.
    I have a set of 35x12.50's big O big foot m/t radials, but I pretty much used em up during the summer on rocky hill climbs and driving 40 miles to work and back every day.

    Only got to mud em a few times. I thought they did damn good in the mud. I dragged a izuzu pup through some STICKY clay at about 1/16th of a mph but never got stuck. I also had 35 psi in em at the time.

    It seemed like they were unstopable with about 8 psi in em.

    How do they compare to tsl's? Wear, mud, hills, road manners, etc.... I'd like to hear from guys who have run both tires... I know tsl's are better in mud but i want an all around dd/4x4 tire.

    I wanted 36x13.50 irok radials but i want to get more then 30k out of a set of $1000 tires....

    Now i have my eye on the 36x12.50 tsl radials but I got a lot of sh!t to do on my rig so price may be a problem.

    The blazer is about 60% dd and 40% offroad.

    I Don't want to spend more 170 bucks a tire because i need to buy a spare this time(or i could a big foot for a spare and get the tsl's) and i need massive amounts of $$$ to finish the truck.

    whatever those Big Foots are, I'm betting they are old and not made anymore. Never heard of them. BFG just redesigned the MT, looks better.

    You are being like me man, thinking way too far ahead. Don't count your damn chickens yet. Make the truck run well, get it where you want it mechanically, THEN worry about tires. Tires are the last thing to go on a truck IMO.

    I second this. Bigfoots are made by Big O. They are the same tread pattern that my Trail Cutters have. I did find a link some time back and Big O had the same tread as my tires.

    Big Foots are sold By Big O, it's a chain of tire stores out here in the western states and I think they may even be in western Canada.

    These are still being made and used.... Big O Big Foot AT Big O Big Foot MT Big O Big Foot XT

    I've ran them all at one time or another (Big O Big Foot's) and love mine! I've ran other tires and like knowing that I will have a warrenty if I have a flat and not have to pay another $25 for a new warrenty

    Big O doesn't make tires. They just buy them from major tire manufactures and have their name stamped on them. They buy from Firestone, Bridgestone and Goodyear. The Big O Bigfoot MT tread looks like Goodyear's generic tread design. It is the same tread as as Wallmart's Super Sport MT tires. I know for a fact they are made by Goodyear and a whole lot cheaper than Big O big foots.
    I used to run Big O Bigfoot MTs but switched to Wally World Tires cuz they were a lot cheaper.. I can tell no diference between the two. Cept the name and about $55 dollar a tire price diference. I like them. They are a strong tire, hook up very well in the mud, and work great on rocks too. Cant beat them. $125 for 12.50 33 MTs . Great warentee too same as Big O. plus free flat repair, rotation, balance, ECT.

    I really cant say anything bad about Big O Traction tires like the Bigfoot, & trail cutter, I ran them and liked them.
    But I know a lot of people who had trouble with their AT truck tires. The tread would seperate ans come right off the tire carcass. Just like the same thing Firestone tires were doing a few years ago. Prolly the same tire.

    Most tires are made by someone else. There are only a few major tire producers out there.

    I've blow out sides of my tires and had them replaced, with out a question be raised. mounted, balanced, and installed back on my truck. Also no charges for new warrenty. Each their own I always say. But I'll stay with my Big O's.... even with how much they cost.. I've saved money, in the long run......

    I agree with Thunder, the Big O ATs aren't good tires. They seem ok for traction, but they wear incredibly fast. At least on my Z71.

    When you get your new tires if you want to get rid of your Big O's let me know? My girlfriend wants to go to 35's ? Also can I get your for the warranty paper work min was stolen out of my truck.. So far I haven't had any problems warrenting them out... But could use some paperwork too....

    Let me know, I think I can get a friends dad to pick them up for me....
    Thanks
