BFG Rugged Terrain's ?

Hey guys,

I have found used BFG Rugged Terrains. How are these tires lets say compared to the AT's?

Any help would be great


Thanks

If I were you I'd do it right the first time and get the BFG A/Ts then you won't be kicking yourself when you realize that you should have bought the A/Ts.

Every set I have seen has worn down to nothing wayyyy! too early. My Boss's truck has 30k miles on it and they are bald. My Best friends 04 f150 wore through a set in 45K miles. Not a Good Tire IMO.

My dad has them on his excursion, and the tread pattern looks almost exactly like the AT's. The tires peform decently offroad. I dont see too much difference at all between them and the AT's.

Those do look pretty close to the ATs. Weird...

EDIT: Ok mystery solved after looking on BFGs website. The Rugged Trails come in 2 different kinds of tread, Traditional Tread that looks like what I posted and the Different Tread that looks like your dads. I didn't make those names up either lol

Look familiar: and then the traditonal tread again:

actually the difference between the two tires, is what gives the AT such a bigger advantage over the Rugged Mall Parking Lot.

Look at the tread along the sides. The AT has actual chunks of rubber missing so it with bite into the mud, snow, sand, better and thus give u better traction. All your traction comes from the sides, not much so from the center. thats why you deflate your tires while offroading alone, to give you that little 'extra' tread

Yea the AT does have a lot more tread on the side. That is probablythe only difference between the two.
