    Have you guys seen the new BFG mud terrains ? They're much more aggressive looking and have a bigger sidewall nobby for more bite. The tread is slightly different as well. Bigger lugs.....which would be nicer than the old mud terrains. They supossedly put the old ones to shame. It looks like an overall great improvement.

    L8r,

    Here is another iron to add to the fire. Supposedly the BFG engineers have been given the green light to make a no holds barred Rock Crawling tire.

    That sounds good, I hope they are thinking about larger sizes than the 35" limit that they have now. IMO the Super Swamper Radial is a better tire, but ya gotta love competition, maybe BFG can come out with a tire even better than the swamper.

    I was told that the BFGs were really Michelins. Is this right? I am on my 2nd set of 35-12.50-16.5AT and they have excellent tread durability...I have 50k on them and I still run them but they are worn to 10%. They stay in balance too.

    Well, I know what my next set of tires is going to be. A little more siping would be nice though.

    Yeah but like Steve said, where are the bigger sizes?? I'd buy the BFG Mud T/A in a heartbeat if they came in 36x12.5x16 or 38x15.5x16![​IMG][​IMG] Will they ever listen to the demand?? [​IMG] One can only hope!

    I read somewhere that they are finally going to start offering more sizes, I hope they go larger too.

    "BFGoodrich is well known for their long lasting and multi functional All Terrain TA KOs, while their Mud Terrains are also extremely popular for a multitude of terrain use. What's new in their midst is a possible redesign of the favorite MTs to offer even more agressive tread and a larger realm of sizing."

    That's the last paragraph on the page Kyle put up.
