Yes the BFG's are most expensive. Revos have almost 50K on them, I want to replace them before I need to, if you know what I mean.

BFG and if you have a discount tire they might give you credit for your old tires,, and what size are you getting?

I got my 31"s for $500.05,, with everything but the tire replacement thing,,

I'd say go with the Silent Armors... they're my next tire. Plus they come in 33x1250s and 35x1250s as well.

I'm With will, I have my reason's, I will never give Goodyear another cent. I have a set of Regatta 2's on my Caddy and they are dry rotted and one of them has a huge bulge on the side, with less than 8K miles on them. I am Ordering some Yokohama's in the spring (Only becasue they are the only company that makes the factory width white wall for my year)

Good Year's Suck!

No Offense to you guys Rocking the Wrangelr M/T's Just my experiance with Good year!

Well thanks for all your input, looks like I'm going with the BFG's
found them at Kauffman Tire for $565 total including mount, balance, lifetime rotation & balance, & tax. Plus if I finance thru them $50 rebate & 90 days same as cash.
oh yeah, size: 31 X 10.5 X 15
