Should i stick with BfGs

Just bought a 2003ranger FX4 level II. I want a good all-terrain because i daily drive my truck and want to be able to hit up the trails on the weekend. Should i stick with the 31x10.5x15 Bfgs all terrains that come on the truck?. Also Should i go with 33x10.5x15 or stick with original size. I don't want to lift it yet othar than lifting the front will the 33s fit. Just want to see what you guys are doing.

Definitely BFG's. They should be aggressive enough for the trail and still be smooth enough for daily use. Whenever my Dunlops wear out that's what Im going with.

Don't go with 33s unless you do a body lift, stick with 31s. I had bfg all terrains and they were awesome on and off road.

actually the reviews are mostly for the pro's...there are some cons..but there's always nay sayers.. for smaller trucks, these tires are amazing. My tire guy compared em to the bfgs but less in price...i have them on my truck and they're wearing amazing. maybe on the bigger trucks they have a problem...but these are amazing tires. anyways, best of luck with whatever tire you choose

I’ve found the BFG All Terrain will wear like steel; keep them.

Did many smoke shows with my ’88/5.0L Ranger and the tires stood the test of time… many miles on them, even had them on a second truck for awhile.

When my KM2’ wear out I am thinking BFG All Terrains.

^^^^ IDK about that. I've heard nothing but good from people who switched from BFG ATs to KM2s. They even say they do better in snow and rain. The only disadvantage about the KM2s is the load range. Aren't you running Load Ranger E Grev? I think if you go down to D you would be happier with them.

As far as alternatives to BFG ATs the General Grabber AT2 is the best for low price. But honestly the originals are worth it.

Hey everyone... 1st post SWEET lol - I've always been a big fan of BFG's but have gone to the Nitto Terragrappler AT on my F150 after my last set of BFG's AT's didn't last nearly as long as I'm used to. I have 41,000miles on the Nittos and still have good tread available and have had no issues. I can say they are the smoothest off road tire I have EVER used. I'm running 295's on the 150 and when I put them on it was like stock ride quality. I'll say they sacrifice a tiny bit of off road traction to the BFG AT's but what I'm getting back in smoothness and longevity is absolutely worth it.

I've had bfg at's and mt's. Loved them both!

The at's sucked in mud but were great on the road and snow.

The mt's are awesome but can get a little tricky on the road with rain/snow. Like we get that much snow anyway.

Both have lasted forever!
