Tire Wear

hi all...as i'm coming around to buying new tires, preferably all terrain/mud terrain tires, i was wanting your imput on which tires will wear the best...

i'm thinking BFG All or Mud terrain tires, maybe an off brand of the same tread design, maybe Pro Comp Mud/X terrain, things like that...

I only got like 34k out of my last set of BFG Mudders, however I did buy another set of 32's a few months ago - I'm sure the A/T's have a lot longer lifespan - I just prefer the aggressive look of the mudders

The BFG ATs are nice, good highwaytires and off road tire....

As for wear, I went through my ATs in 27k, But that is pretty good considering the amount of burn outs I have done lol

33x12.50s will look great

I agree with Jared and Zach the BFG All Terrains are definitely the way to go. Aggressive looking tire with awesome on and off-road traction/life/capabilities.

There are many good tires out there. How aggressive do you offroad...
I have never been stuck where an MT would have helped me. Therefore I got at's (not bfg) mainly because I drive 20k highway miles a year.

Oh and if you want tread life make sure its a LT tire (I think the bfgs all are but could be wrong)
LT = 4/32" more tread (average)

I got my set of bfg mud terrains off of ebay for 300 bucks with rockcrawlers. They had like 25,000 miles on them and a decent amount of tread. I only use them in the winter. If your gonna use them year round be ready to amp your speakers and spend a few more bucks at the pump and your mpgs decreases and road noises increases. Gives your truck a whole nother look though I cant wait til it snows again to be put mine back on

sweet....i'm just interested in 33x10.50's now, due to the fact i'll still be running stock rims for a while, plus, the wider the tire, the more MPG's it'll eat...at least i'll be relatively close to how i am now...

plus i have 4.10 gears in the back, which should spin the 33's better and maybe help out somehow...

I got 86,000 out of my BFG A/T's. They still had tread left when I took them off.

I got the BFG AT ko 32x11.50x15 they are a good tire. I took them muddin the other day and wow they work better than i thought they would. They are not that loud on the highway either. But you can hear them LOL. My gas mileage decreased in very small amounts since I put them on. Maybe and I say Maybe 1 or 2 mpg's. Overall I am happy with these tires.

^^^ i'm sure the good tire wear comes from not many burnouts, not much off roading and obsessive rotations?

all in good tire care....just wondering...i had a set of bfg at's on my blazer and they were gone before i could blink....then i heard they changed the rubber or something, to make them last longer....

Im Different....lol im going to steer you towards PRO COMP......i have 33x12.50 ALL TERRAINS, they come with a 50,000 mile warranty. When i had my old goodyears on last winter, i had to usa 4x4 to get out of the driveway. It snowed 6" after i got the AT's put on and it felt like i was on dry pavement! I really like these tires, and im sure that the mud terrains are excellent as well.

I have an 02 Ranger Fx4 Level II w/ the stock Alcoa's fitted with BFG's 31x10.5
I was thinkin of gettin a 33' and all black rim, but im lost in a sea of Spinner's, Dayton's and mudders.

I love that idea of pro comp 33x12.50, and you say it eats up the mud,pavement and snow? Can i equip those on the stock suspension?.....Cuz im up in the Canadian wilderness, we get it all, so i wanna have mutlipurpose

I have a vision of my Ranger styled after Marty McFly's Black Toyota in Back to the Future....a mean machine that tears up Biff

input is greatly appreciated

from my understanding AT wear better but there is more tire on MT's in the first place, I would expect MT to wear out alittle fast but not much.
