I would do a little bit of background research on the brand. I've never heard of them. See if there are any complaints or testimonials as to the durability of the tire. If they'll last only 45k-ish, and you could get a better tire that lasts longer, maybe 55-60k-ish, It might be worth the extra money to do so. Just my opinion.
Make sure you get LT and not P-metric too, dunno if you're trying to order them yourself off a website, but just keep that in mind.

i wouldn't do it. get the bf's even if you have to save a bit more. when it comes to tires ultimately they are the entity tying your truck to the road. just my 2 cents but i wouldn't skimp on tires. if you're going to be on pavement more there are cheaper alternatives than the bf's. these tires you posted are not an equivalent to bf's.
