MudTerrains

I was wondering what the average life (miles) of a BFG M/T and the BFG AT/KO.

I have heard that the M/T get alot of life out of them.

I think my MT's will never die at this rate. I bought them used with like 12K miles I put around another 13k on they. So at somewhere around 25k miles on them they still look brand new with A LOT of tread left.

a/t's last forever, well not forever but easily for 40k, ive heard of double that from others, the m/t's seem to last really long as well, longer than most other m/t's......

My 31" BFG A/T's only lasted about 30K, my 33" BFG M/T's have a little over 40K and still have a good bit over half tread left. I have no idea why my A/T's didn't last as long as everyone else's.

Would it be a safe guess to say that the M/T would be good for about 35,000 miles.

I bought some old all-terrains of of a 98 dodge ram when I was lifting my Nissan, and I had them on until I sold the truck. I would say that either will last a long *** time as long as you aren't burning out and trashing your tires day after day.

Its nice to hear that a M/T will last a few years. I might have to look into those.

I've been very happy with my BFG A/Ts... both sets of them. The 31s on my new truck have almost 50k on them and they've got about half tread left. That could be 100k on a set of tires! I've never had the MTs though.
