depends on what you are going to do.....

more on-road driving = BFG A/T's
more off-road driving = BFG M/T's...

Get the ATs Mark, the MTs dont get enough on road tread life to make them worth it

you would get probably around 40,000-50,000 miles out of the M/T....

the harder compound on the M/T is great for on road use, and the tires look great, but if you are in rocks alot, the tires chunk out fairly easy....atleast they did on my 1/2 ton just an FYI

If any sand, go with A/T. If more than light mud, go with M/T. If sand and more than light mud, go with Pro Comp X/T.

You'll probably be happier with the A/T just because it's a bit more well-rounded as far as manners and ride quality goes, still has a semi-agressive look (which for some is an understatement, for others and overstatement - all opinion) and with good tire rotation schedule, could go 60k miles easy. As for mud, they aren't great at all cause they just fill up and don't shed the mud easily - with that said though, I had my '02 in mud up to the rocker panels and was able to get it out unassisted - for a while, I thought I was going to have a 2 hours walk just to get to a tractor to get it out, but with some persuasion, some tree limbs and patience, I got lucky I guess.

My 2-cents, that's all

M/T for the win! They look badass and they perform great. Plus on our trucks they wear really slow.

Neither
A/T = Good All Around though there are better tires
M/T = Looks like every other M/T and there are much better tires

For what BFG charges you can get a better tire in either category. Good tires, not quite worth the price tag.

They look like every other generic mud terrain tread pattern. Only difference is the compounds it's made with.

A/T's do good in mud if you get them a little wet. I was in a hole a little over 3ft deep--over my bumper--that was about 30 yards long and made it through fine (I'm 2wd) and soupy stuff is good too. I vote A/T cause more than likely it'll be more than capable enough for your offroad adventures and it'll last forever on the road.

I think he might mean the rim protector, built into the inner tire sidewall? Does any other tire have this?

i dunnno yet..the prices are for 31's but im debating what lift i should run right now..i might buy bits and peices for long travel..and just buy a camburg 5.5 lift
with a long travel i dont want to run a small tires like 31's but if just get the camburg 5.5 lift then 31's should be good
