I would have went with a Buckshot mudder, or something cheaper. Same design, and lighter on the pocket. Im not into the whole BFG= teh shiz group, there are many other alternatives to each tire they sell, kinda one of those things were your paying for the name. IMHO.

But you will have more noise coming from them as they are a M/T, meaning they should have a softer compound, meaning more noise. If its to loud, well thats up to you, i like loud, some like nothing.

If you don't go wheeling I would say no you don't need them. I have seen the difference while off-roading in the muddy trails of wharton. I have seen AT get mud caked in them so bad it looks like a racing slick, and then what, you can't get any traction.

yea if you plan on doing any wheeling, the MT will benefit you more, but if your staying onroad, snow, or sand, then i would have went with the AT.

i think this is all opinion. i love the hum of a good offroad tire. and the BFGs are a tried and true tire. its definately worth the money.


i say go for it. f you dont like the hum sell em and get some ATs. you never know til you try.


and id take the BFGs over the less expensive mud tires. you get what you pay for and the sidewalls usually will show you what I mean.


Im not even a BFG guy myself. Im all about the goodyear MT/Rs. cant get much better than goodyear mt/rs...

i agree with you on that gil, when you get what you pay for. But for the most part, not many people on this site will see the extremes that it would take to actually harm the tires. There are some people, like yourself, who like to do it big or play on th rocks where sidewall thickness is at the utmost importance, but for the time being, and the ablities i have, ill have my money on things like a locker and lift, while still having a decent tire for now.

Agree, I love a good humming tire sound, if it gets annoying on a road trip just turn the radio up.

I will be buying some Mickey Thompson Dick Cepek FCII's here shortly, I think they look fairly aggressive.

many companies imitate the tread pattern found on the BFG A/T, thats why its so popular, so in this case, paying about $130/tire, is about average.

A/T's are for getting groceries. M/T's are for mall-crawlin. Bias Swampers all the way.

I agree w/ the road and snow bits, but just last weekend I tried some moderately hardcore sand-pit action w/ my AT's.. they sucked! The guys w/ the MTs actually seemed to do far better. Of course just about all of us w/ less than ~35" tires basically turned our front ends into plows by 3/4 of the way up the hill anyhow.

In my experience BFG ATs are great all around tires. They do very well w/ both wet and dry pavement, plus remarkably well in the snow. Off-road they are still pretty capable and are a good answer for those of us that do mild wheeling. Plus the wear well so they are economical over the long-haul for most of us 'weekend warriors'..

if you are going to go w/ the bfg all-terrains you should look at prices at sam's club or cosco, thats where i got mine at, it was the best price out of everywhere, however they wont put them on for you if they are bigger than stock size :P

I also got my tires at COSCO - best price around
they did put the 33" BFG M/T on the truck, but it took a bit of persuading

I can tell you they would not take money - not as a bribe or as a tip
In the end the guys in the shop all got some ICL swag... nice baseball caps for all of them

Totally agreed, look in the picture in my profile.

My BFG AT's were literally slicks. You couldn't feel any grooves in the tires.
