New BFGs Friday!!!

After a lot of research and debating and calling, I finally ordered tires. Hate all you want, but I went with the 31X10.50R15 BFG A/T KO. They fit, look awesome, and I don't have to do anything that will effect my ride quality. Not that I don't like the look of 32s and cranked T-bars, just don't want to crank mine. I got them for $143 plus tax mounted. Pretty good price! I will have pics Saturday..

I can't wait to get those old crappy BFGs off of my truck and replaced with new rubber. I'm going to run the numbers on my old tires to see how old they are.

I looked at the Duratracs, and made a few phone calls, most wanted $172 installed. My tire shop wanted 164, which isn't bad, but If I can get a true and tested tire for $143, I will. Those Duratracs are awesome looking too, maybe next time.

BFG K/Os are a great tire if you do alot of street driving. I got 40,000 miles out of a used set of 33's i bought. i just bought new 35's of the same tire.

I fit the bill. I dd mine a lot. 22K a year. I mild offroad (hardly that) and drive in sand at the beach. Other than that, that is it.

Yeah, I have the same exact tires on right now. But they were on these Alcoas when I traded for them. One had a few staples in it, 2 were wore funny due to misalignment, and the 3rd one is ok. I'd say new ones ride like a dream compared to the crappy ones I have now

You got them for around $35 a tire?????? Where in the f*** did you find them for that price? Even online they run around $55 a tire.

i have the duratracs in that size and f'in love them. heard that the bfg's arent that great in snow and ice, so i went with the duratracs. all i have to say is what snow and ice. but you probably wont have to worry about snow and such where you live. and the duratracks kick *** in the mud too!!

I may try them next time around. If I could have gotten them for the same price as the BFGs I would have.

I got my Courser A/T2's for $550 including tax, mounted, and balanced. But my instructor owns a tire shop, so I got em for dealer price.

Based on the kind of driving you do, you'll like them. I liked them on-road, but they turn into slicks in the mud.

My truck rarely sees mud. here in the mountains of NC, we have that ol red clay that is AWFUL sticky! SO i know they will gum up in that stuff. I dont like out mud here. Now if I still lived on the coast where ist dirt instead of clay, then these would be fine.

Great deal! I wish I could afford a new set for my '98 right now, but I'm buying way too much other stuff.

Got the new tires put on this morning. Ya'll have to deal with the cell pics till later. These pics are about 3 hours before the bottom fell out of the sky and we got 12 inches of snow!! Snow pics to come soon as well! Went with the 31X10.50R15 BFG A/T KOs. Let me tell you, i drove through about 10 inches on snow and terrible roads today and i couldn't ask for a better tire! It has been a awesome day!

Epic fail on the 31's.

You will enjoy the tires. They are good ones.
