BFG A/T in the snow

I bought BFG a/ts in the summer and didnt have a chance to try them out till just recently when we had our first snow fall. I was very very impressed with their performance in the snow, now on the ice they arent the best but then again what tire is. To anyone who is thinking about getting a good all terrain tire that looks good,and performs well. i def. reccomend these, i started out in 4WD and then i tried it without 4WD, they were still doin very well.

I agree. Mine have done well in snow, in or out of 4WD. I still have some situations where I find 4WD essential for getting going.. but that isn't unnexpected. I also agree about the ice performance: not stellar. But then these aren't snow/ice tires either. Just a good comprimise.

lol me too but the bfg a/t's I have cant be studded.. or at least they dont have the holes for them. Had some on my old ford tempo and that think would handle like a miracle on the ice. they are loud on the bare road but who cares about that eh lol

Also, there are many kinds of "snow". Sometimes a certain tire may not do well in certain kinds/depths of snow -- but that's the way it is.

I've always found saying something is a good "snow" tire, that wasn't specifically designed for it, a little misleading.

But my experience of watching people with BFG's in snow is that they ARE a fairly decent, all around snow tire.

Not sure what you mean by 4WD and not 4WD being the same thing, cause there was a difference, and i didnt say that they are a good snow tire, i said that i was impressed with their performance and i would reccomend them

Ha ha! Yes, they're great EXCEPT in the mud. It all depends on what you do. I'm tolerating the loss of street performance now to get the extra traction in the sloppy stuff.

I'll NEVER put A/T's on an offroad vehicle (for the terrain I drive) AGAIN.

I had 35" BFG A/T's on the truck for awhile and they sucked big time offroad in Wharton.
