My friend has them on his excursion. Personally, I can't stand them. They are horrible in the mud/sand, and they wear fast. But they are good in rain. I hate em, I woudl never get them, but thats just me.

I thought the same thing when I started looking for tires. Think about it though, there must be a reason so many Rangers run BFG's!
So I got BFG's, & a big smile when they went right thru mud, clay & sand on my recent trip to Inverness!!

A big 10-4 to that. We both run the same tires, mine barely caked up, and when the did, a little throttle slung out the gunk.

They are INCREDIBLE on the street/rain. Awesome in sand. Mud, they are OK. They cake easy in different types of mud.

I've heard good and bad about them. I've heard some say they're awesome and with their price it's hard to beat them. Others say their terrible and a waste of money. If I were you I'd go for them, especially since you can get a good deal on them and you don't spend much time off-road.

There were Geolanders on my Ranger when I bought it. The road noise was so bad I couldn't live with them ( I have about 30% hearing loss ) They sounded like wheel bearings going out. Got rid of them soon after I bought the truck.

I had the Yoko Geolandars on for about 3 weeks, and now have Michelin LTX's.
The Yoko's made the truck shake above 45mph, and I can't stand a shakey
ride.
