General Grabber AT2 out ranks BFG AT KOs on tirerack!

heres the link

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey....jsp?type=ORAT

now given that the bfgs DO have 1000x more reviews. but, even so, the couple hundred that have taken the chance and bought them, are pretty happy. It will be interesting to see rednecks response after hes allowed out of the corner.

I was actually looking at them for my next tire. The tread pattern is somewhat similar to the BFGoodrich but the price is much cheaper. The 640AB tread wear rating is also a plus because I need a tire that is going to last a long time unlike my current tires. I've got about 25,000 miles on them and they're almost done.

I still contend that Rating is statistically meaningless.

BFG AT ko: Miles reported: = 52,493,831
General AT2: Miles reported: = 572,008

Not to mention BFG have over 12000 people who reviewed them vs 108 people with the AT2. If I build a Tire and sell one set and it has a positive review that would be an 100% rating. If they had the same or similar Miles reported and the same or similar # of people reviewing them I would concede, but right now it is a meaningless statistic.

miles and people who have had them......i wont buy any other A/T...BFG for me all the way....too many good experiences with them.......

and as long as the BFG A/T has been on the market without changes should tell you something...

110% stand behind BFG A/T as long as i have a daily driver truck that doesnt see mud i will always have these tires they last forever. and are EXTREMELY nice in the snow.

have fun with the nock off tires... funny a company you say is better but they had to COPY off BFG style and design what does that show you?
