yeah bro. watch out for wal-mart, they sell you the tire at a good price, but then it's like $5 for mounting and balancing, $1 for valve stem, $2 for disposal, and then you have to get the tire warrantee, even if you dont want it, you have to get it, and it's like $10 a tire or somthing queer like that. They F*ed my wife, and then they sold her 2 tires that are only carried by wal-mart, some kind of goodyear, and then when i wanted to put two more on I had to go back to them to get matching tires.

Well if you want the stock size, you have to get the 10-ply because they don't make it any other way. But I agree that it is a bit overkill for our smaller trucks.

And compared with my stock Wranglers, the BFG's were actually a softer ride at the same tire pressure...I'm not sure how to explain that because it doesn't really make sense, but that's how it felt when I first drove my truck with the new tires on it.

alrite, so maybe the solution is to go with a bigger sized tire of BFG AT's to get the 6 ply if i can, which i mean, i like the bigger size look too, but i just dont need it. But if thats what i gotta do oh well.

one more question, rite now i have 2 different kinds of tires on, is that bad for anything?

It's not bad as long as you have the same size/brand on the same axle, and that all 4 are relatively the same kind of tire...like all terrain, mud terrain, etc.

I mount/dismount BFG's all day. After seeing how poorly they can wear & stay out of balance, I'll never buy All-Terrain's from BFG.

i have not had any good luck with BF A/t's, SUCK in snow i felt scared even 4x4 all 4 tires spun with little acceleration and stopping in the snow forget it you have to calculate when to lock up the brakes so you dont skid into the car infront of you

any mud is forget it 1/4" i was stuck in 4x4 lol and i used the tires for like 8k miles and they looked like they had 20k gone from them.

i have Kumo At's and i love them and never had a problem ever since with stuck or snow.

idk maybe its just me but i dont like bf a/t's just a big money pit if you ask me.

not to be an ***, but your problems with BFG A/T's seem to be an issue of not knowing how to drive in snow. i had no problems in 30" of snow with my 33" BFG A/T's....i was 1 of 5 trucks out in the county during that snow storm a couple years ago that was able to get around. We now have contracts with the county and the hospitals incase for emergency services if we ever get that much snow again.

Mud....i have had my truck in about 6" of mud and got out....i didn't know it was there and drove into it.....

as far as wear, any tire will wear badly if you don't take proper care of them. Rotation, inflation, alignment, and worn front end parts are the key killers of tires, no matter what brand. The 33's i had i ran for 44,000 miles before i sold them to Bill (04lvl2), he ran them for a few thousand miles then sold them to someone else. They had about 50% tread when i sold them. As far as i know, they are still on a truck somewhere.

the set of 35's i have on my truck now has 8,000 miles on them and they still look new.....

My mom has a set of BFG A/T's on her Explorer. she has had them for about 8,000 miles and they still have the little tread fingers still on them.
