I could run them if I was willing to change tires every time I went offroading. Sadly, the BFG A/T's pretty much suck in the mud.

I like my AT's...they look pretty sick and I know they go good in the snow.

Plus, I've heard of a few people getting 50k plus out of them...that's very respectable.

For sure they last a long time. I know guys that got them even further than that. It's a great AT design.

I drove through that mess in the 18-wheeler. It was sweet! I <3 snow!

After the stupid michigan dot plowed the snow they found out it was nothing but ice underneath. Cars were going off the road left and right after the plow trucks came though. Guess I was the only one awake at 3am when it was 27 degrees and pouring down raining. lol

Cheap asses were only putting down sand too! WTF? Can't opt for salt?

quick question... when did you buy them... sounds like the older compound... a few years ago they changed the compound on the M/T and they dont get nearly as good of life out of them anymore the older harder compound you can get around 80,000 out of them easy
