    whats the general oppinion on the bf goodrich all terrain. got a chance to hit a set of 35x12.5/16.5 for 350.00. 2 tires almost brand new, 2 have about 5,000 miles on them. just hope they are still there when i get my tax money back and can actually buy a set...

    other options include a set up 33 inch phantom a/t from discount tire at 104 per tire installed.

    or 33 inch dakota rvt from pep boys at 97.99 per tires installed

    what would you guys think about my choices?

    That is a very good deal I just sold a set of the new KM All terrians for 450$ that were pretty much new. They work well for trails and rock, not so great in sloppy mud, never used them in sand. All in all a good tire though.

    That is a great deal!

    The BFG AT's are great tires for a daily driver and they actually do pretty good off road. I got 50k+ miles on the last set I owned and they handled great.

    They will load up with mud if you get into the goey stuff but for that price they are a bargain!

    yeah, i hear that. my primary driving unfortunatly is on road. big pavement pounder here. but the tires i have now are about dead, close to 0% tread..... they burned pretty bad when my father in law had the truck and needed an alignment. and the fact that they are around a 30 inch tire doesnt help the looks any. so a 33 or 35 should make a huge improvement.

    Sounds like you found deal.Like said can get better offroad tire.16.5s don't air down too well,but,won't matter on road.BFGs are good tire. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    my bfg at's only lasted about 12000 to 15000 miles beforew they were dead.the sidewalls are very week in my opinion.i got a flat almost every time i wheeled with them.but since you are on road mostly i wouldnt worry much about that.i got the cheap wallmart tires and they lasted about 20000 miles now and are about dead.i will never buy the a/t's ever agian.for that price it is a bargain though and id say worth it.

    bfg at's are great tires. my parents run em on the back of the full size vans. you can really stretch some miles out of em. as far as them sucking offroad it depends on what you do. if you plan to go boggin then get a bogger /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif but for rocks and dirt they do really well. i keep tossin the idea around about gettin a set when i go to do tires but the 37" ers are really over priced

    p.s. the dakotas aren't that bad for a pepboys tire thats what i got now. they came on my blazer

    I have bfg at's on my rig and I have been in the sand mud and rocks with them.For the daily driver there the choice for me for to reasons.the first is the price I got mine for 98.00 each now around 130.00 each still a good price.Second I have had mts and had a blow out could not fine a replacment at the time they were back orderd for a month but the at's were in stock so I went with a set and have hade no problems....just my two cents!! mike /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Ran BFG ATs on wifes cherokee.Good tires,watch air pressure on road,if low it causes heat buildup in sidewalls cause they are stiffer than street radials.Low pressure killed two of hers. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gifer /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
