BFGs


Grabbers


reviews on tirerack have the grabbers rated higher than the BFGs, but the BFGs have many more miles reported.

Good tires. They used to be the "it" tire on R-F years ago when I first joined. The Cooper S/T is awesome so is the S/T-C (thicker sidewalls & chip resistant compund).


^S/T


^S/T-C (Notice the sidewall)

I have the wrangler silent armors on my truck(f150), love the tires. I had the previous version on it before. They last forever, are really quiet, grip the road in rain, snow, dry and ice great as far as i am concerned.

Goodyear MTR is a killer tire too. I had them on the ranger at one point, great tire, for what it was.

Goodyear is like every other company they make cheap tires, decent tires, and good tires. Unlike some Goodyear makes a few GREAT tires as far as I am concerned. If I could afford the 42x14.5x17 MTR Kevlars I would.

some of you guys have never ran a good goodyear tire, so i am not sure how you can speak for them.

as far as tire size i have a 2004 4x4 and they rub a little on turns... idk exactly what you have but be aware of that and i have cut. i have no t-bar adjust or anything tho.... if you want to spend a lil extra get the bfg at/ko... there a lil more expensive but masn they last forever and are the only tire i know of with a 3 ply sidewall... but honestly from my expirenced i would say any tire would be good for higly onroad use and very little off road use. but the grabbers seem nice for the price

i decided to stick with the stock size atleast for now, i was in a pinch to get tires and they didn't have what i wanted in the 265.

I've had the silent armors since they came out not a single problem great on road tire, rain,sleet, snow never lost traction. I'd get them but thats just IMO. I'm running 245's the only down fall is that they are heavier so mpg will go down by 1. Also really good reviews on tire rack.
