The Michelins I have are very good in the snow and the dirt, but mud and stuff is a no go. The only tire I can think of with good traction off road that would help with your fuel economy would be the Bridgestone duealer AT with Revo....

How would the duelers be better for the fuel econnomy if they are A/T's? Are they a single ply or something?

They are lighter than the BFG's and while the tread pattern is good for off roading, they have less rolling resistance. I know they have a higher ply rating than the average street tire, but not as much as the BFG. I will look and see when I have a minute to see what the ply difference is....

?

I checked them out on www.tirerack.com. The Duelers look nice, but they don't get as good of a review as the BFG's. If they are worse than the BFG's in the snow and rain, then I'd rather just go with the BFG's and deal with the mpg. Looking at the tread pattern of the Duelers, I'd think they would be better. :shug:

Here's what I found:

BFG A/T

Bridgestone Dueler A/T

I'll throw in my two cents..

I went from being lowered with 275/40/20 to stock with 235/75/15 and had lost, roughly, .5 mpg. I get 280ish a tank now compared to 300ish with the twanks. And thats filling up with 15 gallons. Running 87 and 93 tunes doesn't change anything either.

That could easily be attributed to the fact that maybe your other wheels and tires are lighter, your speedo was off, or the current tires have more rolling resistance...
