Bought new tires GOODYEAR WRANGLER AUTHORITY AT

I was needing to buy new tires because my current BFG'S are beyond help so I decided to buy some 31-10.50-15 Goodyear Wrangler Authority AT, I have been running bfg all terrain ta ko's for the last 5 years but decided to try these new tires, they cost $133.00 each, they look quite impressive and the few days I have had them on now I have no complaints.

Winter is just about here in kansas and I can't wait to see how these tires perform so has anybody else bought these tires and what do you think?

Below is a couple pics of the new tires and my old *** worn out bfg's.

those tires look pretty damn nice. I usually hate on every A/T in existance but they're pretty agressive. They might be M/T for all i know, too lazy to look it up.

Those look awesome for an AT. Great price for a 31 inch Goodyear to.

The lip of the tire looks off though. Almost like it doesn't fit the rim.

Optical illusion and lighting trick, it seats just perfect but I do kinda see what you mean.

Aren't those like the walmart/costco version of the Duratrac? They don't look half bad at all. Nice price too.

Looking good man! Someday I will get new tires. Those sport kings I got on there right now are great for light trail and such but rain=fail. I am definitely considering the duratracs or dunlop maxx traction. I hope they do you well in the Kansas winter!
