You will never see a trail rig or someone who actually offroads their vehicle with A/Ts.
Are you crazy?!?!?! Look how many people on here have A/Ts that offroad there trucks on a regular basis.

I agree, the reason everyone has them is because they have been proven to work.

oh and i also like my tires lasting me a reasonable amount of miles. THe last set of bfgs i had went almost 37000miles and i know i destroyed them offroad, so they could of easily went 60+ w/ no offroading. I would doubt that the MTs would of lasted me 25K driving the same way and is why i didnt buy a set of them 2 months ago when i got a new set of tires.

Your the crazy one. Go look at all the jeeps and 4x4s on all the extreme trails and all youll see are M/Ts and super swampers which shows that they are the better tire for offroading. And M/Ts are used all the time in Baja.

And yes M/Ts will chunk because of the softer compound and when they dig into the dirt they pull up rocks that cut into them while A/Ts will just spin on top of the dirt.

Also I didn't buy my tires for mileage but they still get around 40k out of them and they are cheaper then your BFGs.

ummmm actually there is A LOT of members on here that DO have BFG A/T's and DO take them off-road.....any freakin idiot in their right mind would know that an all-terrain tire IS NOT going to perform to what a Bogger or M/T tire will do in the heavy/mucky mud........common sense would tell you that (but i know there is A LOT of people on here who have none).......

have you ever really watched a Baja race? i would assume not since over 85% of the trucks running Baja run the BFG Baja T/A tires.....

you may get 40,000 miles out of your tire, but do you realize that 99% of people running BFG A/T tires get around 55,000 to 60,000 miles out of a set of tires? so in the time a BFG A/T wears out, you have bought 2 sets of tires....hmmmmm do the math on that 1.....the prices are about the same in the long run...

one shouldnt calulate buying tires on thier mileage ratings. from new to bald mileage is usless, as your buying these tires for performance of some sort. after so many miles their will be no more performance over any other tire of a different kind.

I think this whole last page of arguments is retarded.

Lets try to agree on something:

A/Ts are a good allterrain tires. Mud they are not.

M/Ts are a good everywhere tire. They <3 mud

Who cares what baja racers use. We're kinda specifying tire effects in mud.


As to BFG A/Ts versus other brands. In my opinion they're quite often the same exact thing.

this is true IF you are buying tires for sole off-roading.....BUT if you are buying tires for a mixture, more on road driving, you should also look more heavily on milage rating...

Well, this thread is not "BFG A/Ts suck at driving on road!"

It's talking about their offroad use. I wouldn't buy tires for mileage anyways. Unless it is 20K miles versus 50K miles. That is quite a difference.

Yes I understand that the A/T is a widely used tire for offroading and that in most cases it will not stand up to a M/T because its not made for mud.

Although most trucks do use the Baja A/T there are also alot who run the Baja M/T but they don't last nearly as long as the A/T.

And I'm not trying to defend the mileage for a M/T because it's crap compared to the A/T but I bought my tires for performance.

I like this post except...M/T's would produce more road noise, less of a smooth ride and wear faster than the A/T's.

Everything else is dead on.

I'll give you looks for sure. My brother in law was hesitant between the A/T's and M/T's for his Jeep Cherokee...ended up getting the M/T's and they look much more aggressive than mine.

Even though I will be retiring my tuck from the hardcore offroad trails my next set of tires will be X-terrains mainly because they look awsome but they will still be able to get me around the minor trails. As for my sami or jeep SUPER SWAMPERS.

Lol

Strictly offroad a M/T will kick a A/T's ***. Onroad a A/T will win hands down except for looks.

I wouldn't say hate, but they're over hyped. Perfect tires for street queens that wanna look tough/offroad. Don't belong on terrain rated for above stock trucks though IMO.

Thats probably the best overall sum up. But just wait for all the diehard A/T people to read this.
