i have these tires right now and i dont realy like them. they get a little hairy in the wet and the snow. i have a 4.0 5spd and when i pull out in the wet and i get on it sometimes they break loss but in the snow i had my dads bfgs long trains on my truck and they were a heck of a lit better than the kumho i would go with bfg long trail or a/ts.

well i can rip them if i hammer down over 3.5k rmp's but compared to my old bf A/T's they were just awefull never got traction and loved to kick sideways.

they have wider oppenings then the BF's and it lets them clean out better with better lines running down the tire instead of staggared for the rain less hydroplaining.

There is a significant price difference between 16" rims and 15" rims. With 15" rims the tires tend to be cheaper comapred to the more expensive rubber for 16" rims

don't have a clue where you got your prices, but they saw you coming and said "were gonna screw this guy".....

i didn't pay $800 for all 5 of my 35x12.50x15 BFG A/T's.......i paid somewhere around $750 for all 5 brand new from Summit.....


BFG's are the best A/T tire on the market and it shows.....they have great treadwear, good handling charactists, great snow/ice/rain traction, and are not loud.....

I have had the Pro Comp A/T's and they suck extreme a$$.....they wear badly, are loud, and don't last long.....not to mention they have a bad tendency to have sidewall failures...
