Alright my tires are not that worn out yet I have about 25,000 miles on them. The only thing worn on them is the ***** on the edge of the tires from cornering like I drive a race car, on all the tires I have ever owned I wore out the outsides first. I want mudders but I dont go offroading much. I am just getting tired of the ones I have now I like them but would never buy them agian. I am more for looks of the tires than anything. I would like to get good mileage so I think I am going to get the BFG's.

Looks and mileage? IMHO the baja's look better, they do have them in a radial. I'm sure the radial can come close to 25-30k. The huge sidewall tread make them look badarse.

I vote BFG's. I have the AT"s and those babies have never left me stuck. I wish I had pic's to show the sand pit and the huge snow bank that they got me out of.

I love the Xterrain's. I always have. I'm gonna get some next when the swampies wear out. But don't go to tire rack, true bout not mountin and balance. But also you may get the tires cheap but they make up for it in the freight charge. Some tires that cost $400 total but have $100 freight charge - will of course cost the same as those $500 tires from 4WP or Bubba's 4x4 & Mud Shop.

That is true. Make sure you shop around first. At least print out the price quote from tire rack and then take it to local dealers in your area. They might match the prices.

Yah...I got 'em shipped up from Seattle for free, so it worked out for me. I guess it only works for us "non-contiguous" US people who have relatives who work in a shipping company.
