    Wild Country TXR Vs. BFG AT\'s

    So which is the better tire? $615 for the TXR's and $655 for the BFG's.

    Re: Wild Country TXR Vs. BFG AT\'s

    I can't speak much for the Wild Country tires because I haven't run them, but BFG AT's are THE BEST ALL-TERRAIN OUT THERE. (Flame me if you will, but I run them and couldn't be happier) Great wear, MILDLY aggressive pattern, great wet pavement traction, do amazingly well on snowy roads, not loud on the road.
    What do you plan on doing with them? Is this a street only truck, or ????. I hear Wild Country has weak sidewalls.
    Also, is that the best price you can find for Wild Country's? They aren't a "top-quality" brand like BFG so you should be able to find them for less. I think there is a recent post about Wild Country Mud tires being $60 a piece or something like that. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Re: Wild Country TXR Vs. BFG AT\'s

    i'd buy TXRs over BFG all terrains any day! much more agressive tread. i had some 35s on a blazer once and they where a good all around tire and did OK in mud. not as good as a bfg mudder would do but way better than a A/T. A/Ts turn into slicks in the goo. they are basically a good highway tire. my .02 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I wouldn't put Wild Country's on my parts truck. They are by far the worst tire made. For 50 bucks go w/ the BFG's. They are a proven tire w/ a great reputation. If you want lots of flats and bald tires in no time, then go w/ the Wild Countrys.

    Re: Wild Country TXR Vs. BFG AT\'s

    It's going to be used mainly for DD. There's BFG's on now so I was wondering if Wild Country would be better, apparently not. I'll stick with BFG /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Wild Country TXR Vs. BFG AT\'s

    Wild Countrys are also much shorter than BFG. Grim's 32x11.50 BFGs were taller than my 33x12.50 W/Cs. I never would have bought them, they were on my '73 when I bought it. The BFG A/T is a great street tire, good off pavement, just stay out of the big mud.

    Re: Wild Country TXR Vs. BFG AT\'s

    i did not like my bfg a't tires personnally.they wiore out real quick maybe only 12,000 miles or so.i got holes in them every time i took them off road also.the best tires i have had for the price were the super sport wall mart tires.dont laugh,they lasted twice as long as the bfg's and had a more aggressive tread pattern and worked good off road.if the made them in a 35x12.5 16.5 rim size i would buy anether set of those.

    I called Walmart, they don't sell 35" tires any longer. They're still listed on thier website, but they don't have them any longer.
