i HATE my b/f's also!!!!! WOO HOO I"M IN THE CLUB!!!!

i almost got stuck on flat land with bearly any mud. all they did was spin and i wasent moveing so i put it in 4x4 and it was bearly moving all it was doing was slideing to the side towards rocks.

in SNOW i feel like a big green tobogan cause they dont stop i have to put brakes on about a 1/4 before a light when i'm only going 20mph.
driving in snow is even worse and i get scared driving around town caus all they do is slip. and it has to be in 4x4 if there is any snow on the ground or i'm not going anywhere.

Rain they are ok but the rear tires still spin on normal take offs. i have to ease into it.

o ya and i got 4.10 LS

Mine seemed to do fine in the mud. Maybe I just have a lead foot and they clean out better. Not sure. Also it wasn't all that deep. But I love them in the snow. And I like to play in the snow more then mud.

you should go with the MTZ the BFG A/T suck!!!! They did ok for me this weekend, but I was mostly in hard pasked stuff. My next tire is gonna be the MTZ or maybe the swamper SSR but, they have alot of road noise, which I really dont care about.

Every tire made is a compromise. The BFG A/T's offer better pavement traction and longer wear at the expense of some offroad capability. They are one of the best all around tire choices for combination on/off road use but, as stated, do not excel in mud.

They don't suck at what they are built for. You just went beyond the intended use of the tire. It's an A/T not an all concurring off road tire. Good for DDs and I hear a lot of good things about the winter and wet weather handling.

Finally a voice of reason. Why rag on a tire that doesn't mud well when that's not what it was designed for?


I love my BFG's for what they were designed for. They do awesome in the rain and snow, they wear excellent, they look great, and hold their own in some off-road situations.

I've only been stuck with my BFG's once... and the way I was stuck, no tires would have helped me out. I'll keep a vote in for my BFGs, though I may go with a more aggressive tire next time around. Still up in the air on that though.

Well then you should have done your research first before taking the word of some people. I don't know who you got your information but if you do a search for BFG AT's here on this forum, you'll see the majority of people say they aren't great for mud.

It's not the AT's that suck, it's the decision you made to get AT's for mudding that sucks.

I bought some used up A/Ts off a 98 dodge ram and used them on my previous truck until I sold it. I never used them in thick mud, but they held up great considering the condition they were in. If I had to buy tires again it will definitely be m/ts considering all the positive reviews on them and how long they last.

I didn't care much for the BFG AT's either.. They were good, but not great by any means.. But, AT tires aren't as big of a deal for me any more anyway.. I can't afford to offroad the truck..
