Final Tire Decision

So after a few months of deliberation I have my tire shopping down to 5 tires. My price was originally $500 for some good used ones but it's down to the wire now so I through my price range out and opening up my options. I want to choose between the red options. The only thing I haven't done is call my local shop to get prices. Especially on the Mastercraft ATs. Here's the chart:



So please vote and please keep my limited bank account in mind. These are my final choices and I am not looking at any other tires. Mount and balance is another $60 at my shop. And these are total prices including shipping.

POLLS NOW UP

BFG A/T all the way. Had them on my F150 and they were great tires. Never had a problem and the tread wear was great. I never took them off road, the were used on the street only.

I would suggest getting what YOU want... they are all quality tires and you can't go wrong with either of them... all comes down to preference..

I chose duratracs cuz they might be my next tire. Not a huge fan of the tread pattern on the bfg's, even tho i have them on my truck and they are great tires.

I don't know enough about all of the tires to vote, but I am quite happy with the performance of my BFG A/T's.

Well guys if money hadn't been an issue I would have gone with the Duratracs or the BFGs but it was so I got the Mastercraft Coursers AT2s at my local shop $600 out the door tax, mount and balance, tires, and chrome valve stems.



They look good. Should have lift on in March and it will be done :)

I use ummm I can't remember not Wesley's though. Black magic I think. I heard comet works good to. My main thing now is avoid curbs. Bent aluminum would SUCK.

They are alot bigger than i though. Glad I got 31s and didn't spring for 33s.

Love my duratracs. Im guessing that instead of saying "And these are total prices including shopping." its supposed to be shipping, if so how are those durtracs so cheap, i paid the same for mine before shipping...

Thanks, I hope they do good in the snow and rain. I'm gonna rotate them like every 5-10k, I think that is why people have been having issues with them. Most complaints are they wear too fast, weak side walls (guys trying to rock crawl in ATs lol), and they vibrate and make noise once they wear down some. The wheels are Eagle Alloy BTW. Like $102 a piece at Summit.

Haven't heard many things on the Mastercraft's. Hopefully they are a good tire for you.

I've had two sets of BFG AT's on my Bronco, and have been pleased. I love the look of the BFG AT's....they have an agressive look.

I've also been interested in the General's. I might pick up a set of those when I lift my Ranger.
