thats right, im gonna say it.

the revos are much qieter than the BFGs. that is all i will say about that and i will not argue about noise levels again, so please keep it out of this thread, if you would like to read pages of arguments over the noise levels of tires please do a search, it saves me a lot of stress, and im getting old and my blood pressure higher

The BFGs are wildly popular, but not always the best, the REVO always has the highest ratings on tirerack, and that made me buy mine. They have been through about 30000 miles now, some on my ranger, some on pinecones lifted ranger, and now on my wifes truck. i love them and PERSONALLY would choose them over BFGs anyday

I do agree that the BFGs have a long tread life, but i agree that the REVOs do too, and id like to see some hard proof saying otherwise, not just blabber

here are some hard facts, as a compilation of HUNDREDS of user ratings on tirerack, notice the REVO scores better in all fields, and has a 50000 mile treadlife warranty

This is the BFG load D against REVO E

This is BFG load D against REVO C, numbers may be the same i havent checked

I have had both the Dueler REVOS, and BFG All-Terrains on my truck.


In my experience, the REVOS were quieter, and also handled better on wet/dry pavement. The BFG All-Terrains are slightly louder, but they seem to have better offroad traction.

I had Revo's on the truck and I liked them. I got them used from Jay and were not wearing bad at all and I was rough on them. I dunno if I wanna get another set of Revo's for the Jeep or go with BFG's

I got the revos on my truck, They work great for want I need out of a tire. Decent off road traction, For my off roading, cant seem to find a good area where I live. I dont know what load Rating I got, not D though, I heard that load rating only affects how much weight can be put on the tire, It didn't affect much else. Defiantly go with 265/75r16, you will NOT be disapointed I think my truck sits alot higher now than it did before, hell I got more gound clearance than my dads 2001 f150 4x4 off road.

I would go with BFG, after seeing Zachs Revos mine had alot more mileage left in them. I had 30k on them when I sold them to 2004Edge and they two of them had 10/32 and the other two 11/32. Cant ask for much more, easily another 30k if not more out of them.

i sell tires for a living so i will put my two cents in.

Everybody and their mom has the BFG's and is one of the main reasons that i didn't get them for my truck, along with the fact that i didn't like the tread.
I picked the Revo's and i love them to death. they are quiet, great treadware, and they look awesome. i have 30,000 on them so far and they do come with a 50,000 mile warranty.

what i tell people when they ask me is that the BFG's have a long history and have a large following. my revo's are amazing when they come to dry and wet traction and i have taken my truck offroading and never gotten stuck(but location and driving play a large part in that). i am completely impressed by them and am not sure what i will get next when they wear out. if you spend a lot of time on the street i would say hands down get the revo's. if you off-road all the time i would say pick you poison, but by the same token the BFG's might sway my vote due to the history of them. if you do an even amount of street and off-road then either one will do great, but i would be swayed towards the Revo's.
sorry i am biased because i have the revo's, but i love them to death and i have sold them to customers in the past who used to have BFG's and they liked the revo's a lot better, plus you will always get comments from people who love the tread design :P
