New Tires

Hello! This Saturday I will be taking my 99 4x4 to discount tire to get some new BFG all terrains. Is there anything that I should do or have them do when I get the tires put on? Also I heard something about the tires being a 10 ply tire which makes the truck ride a little more rough, what do you guys that have them think? Thanks for the help!

10 ply is going to ride pretty hard.

What size tire are they?

Any over sized tire that you put on a Ranger is going to ride ruff.

dude im not trying to sound like an ******* but the bfgs suck major *** compared to the new goodyears. the bfgs fill with mud and stay packed. they also arent that great in the snow. they are an old technology tire there are much better tires out there now.


if you want one of the best tires on the market today buy the goodyears.

All-Terrains work great in the snow! Have you ever had them on any of your vehicles downey? And they also are great offroad.

Im guessing he read this on tire rack, reviews on TR are bad idk why, but everyone here says they are awesome, ive seen great things out of BFG allterains and BFG tires wear awesome, if your getting a 10 ply your ride will be ruff and they will wear faster and you'll want to run a lower air pressure.

see if they have any 255/70/16 on hand-those are 8 ply at least.

plus they're wider :) tiny bit shorter though but not even by a half inch

for the record i agree they are WAY outdated. and over priced for what you get

yeah they come with 3-4 more 32nds tread but they don't last any longer than the gy's , toyos, falkens, kumhos. multimiles etc. all of which come in an appropriate 4 ply or 6 ply for our trucks

Thanks for the input. I will be giving some more tire shops some calls to see if I can get the all-terrains in a more appropriate ply.

Yeah man, IMO I would not run more than an 8-ply at most. I am content with my 6-plys. Good tread life and won't bounce you off the road.

I had the BFG's. Take my truck all over the desert and i never had a problem. But they went bald a little quicker than i wanted and lost wet traction with them all together after half tread life. All in all a great tire for the desert thou. 10 ply stood up to sticks, cacti and rocks. So - pro's and Con's in my book. Only tire i ever had in the snow. So can't compare them to anything there.

But i'm looking for tires and you all got me thinking about goodyears. Which i never liked in the past.

Me and a couple of buddies call them Mall Terrians. I think there are better tires out there. I bought Duratracs, very impressed so far.

Yeah I went into discount today and took a look at all the tires and I'm pretty sure that I am going to get the duratracs now.
