    Wow, the truck is QUIET again. Damn those mud terrains are loud. I mean, its really really loud! Are BFG MT's known to be very loud?

    Should I be considering a set of the BFG AT's as my next set of tires?

    lol. Ok, so swampers are definately out.

    They BFG's were getting so loud, that I thought I had a driveline vibe-, or my pinion angle was screwed up. The lugs on the bfg were acutally the cause of it!

    Im very tempted to get a set of the BFG AT's. I've been lookin at the tread closely, and it looks about 80% as agressive as the MT's. THe only worry of course, is in the deep gumbo stuff, the AT's may not clean themselves out as well at the MT's. I even had problems with my MT's not cleaning themselves out. the compromises.. the compromises...

    their 35x12.5x15's. Their the first ones, the Radial Mud terrains, BFG seems to claim thait their new Mud Terrains KO (or whatever the letter designation is ) is quieter.

    Try driving around with boggers that are a bit cuped in the front at 65mph along with dual flowmasters that dump under the truck with a pumped motor. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I would love to enjoy the peace and quiet of BFG mud terrains. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    you're complaining about BFG mts being loud? dude, true, they send a good viebe down the metal but its not bad at all, if i had two sets of tires, then i would go AT and MT, but with one set, im deffenettly sticking to MTs. besides, they speak "tuck" when you go past people.

    I really don't feel that my swapers are that loud /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    But I dont hear the tires /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif, the ride very nice on my truck as well, /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
