BFG All Terrain

So these are my usual tire of choice for 33 x12.5 and I'm close to pulling the trigger on a set. Just making sure that nothing better in an all around good tire has popped up I don't know about.

Re: BFG All Terrain

I was like you, I looked and did a lot of research. I wanted something that looked aggressive but didn't want the noise of a mud tire. So some companies are starting to make what they call a hybrid tire. It has the mud lugs on the outside of tire and all terrain in the middle. They all say they don't make any more noise then a all terrain tire but have the ability to do more of the off road stuff. I bought a set of Toyo RT open country for my 72 k10. They are 35c12.50r18 on a 10in wide rim and Fuel Hostage rims.I haven't had them on the road yet but boy I love the looks.

Re: BFG All Terrain

I am running a quiet and smooth tire that I like better off road, Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs. I found a better deal on those than the Coopers I have been buying. I think Cooper is the best tire company at the moment. They offer 5 options in A/T where BFG offers 2. Go to Discount Tire Direct and check them out. A good site to do comparisons

Re: BFG All Terrain

Ill check the tires mentioned out.

I like the look, ride, and all around qualities of the All Terrain's. I don't care for the other styles offered by BFG. I just figured it would be smart of me to check out other choices that might be out there.

Re: BFG All Terrain

I had many BFG’s and always had good luck with them. I got a good deal on General Grabbers and was impressed with them. Duratracs are a great tire, just not a great price lol. Haven’t used them yet, but again got a good deal on Goodyear authority which is a Wally World brand, heard they are a decent tire....

Re: BFG All Terrain

I had duratracs on my truck ..now I have nitto ridge grapplers...the duratracs lasted 75k...I don't think the grapplers will last that long and theyre getting noisy...im going back to duratracs on my next set....ive run the bfgs on previous trucks and got good life from them and they were descent offroad , but they got extremely noisy when they got down to 25% life....

Re: BFG All Terrain

I've had great luck with the cooper at-3, i've had them on most of my trucks, and on my work van, they are quiet, long lasting, and cheap, so speaking from experience that is all I can personally recommend
I'm going to need to purchase new rubber for my suburban soon as was thinking about going with the duratracs, but was also leaning to the cooper discover st.
I saw a post recently about skinny tires on the older trucks and really liked the skinny classic look with the coopers.

Re: BFG All Terrain

Here is 285/75-16 on 8" wheels (4" lift). I think I went with these rather than Coopers because I felt the tread looked closest to traditional, as well as being one of the best of it's kind in the mud. Meaning a good road manners tire.

Re: BFG All Terrain

also a fan of BF's.
i'm in the market right now myself for some BF's to replace my bf m/t's i bought in '99- yup that's right, '99
before the m/t's i was running a set of bf a/t's which were on the truck for 8 yrs, put the m/t's on and gave the a/t's to my buddy who ran them for another 5 or 6 yrs
i go off road quite a bit so i want the m/t's for traction. have only had 1 flat ever with BF's (bad bead)
only downside, when they do get down, like mongo says to 25% or so, they are LOUD...louder than the 38's on my crewcab, loud enuff i have to turn up the radio on the freeway to hear it over the tires

Re: BFG All Terrain

I really want the "look" of the all terrains if I end up switching. And I love the skinny look too, just not for what I'm tossing together this time.

I'll be checking out the suggestions that have been tossed out here so far.

Re: BFG All Terrain

Certain trucks and certain situations tall n skinny are great. Me, I like fat tires lol. But for snow use tall n skinny works the best. Off road not so great, sometimes need the floatation to keep from sinking to the frame...

Where are getting these now? BFG stopped production of this size 2 years ago and the email they sent back said no new runs will be made. 4 wheel parts had the last supply which dried up a few months after they bought the last warehouse stash

Re: BFG All Terrain

ran the KOs and now the KO2s, love 'em.. great off road traction and quiet on the street..

magazine review and all but may be something useful in there to ya'

BFGOODRICH ALL-TERRAIN KO2 REVIEW

Quote:
So after more than 1,000 miles of commuting, highway, road trip, desert, sand, rain, dirt, and rocks, we can tell you that BFG hit its mark with the KO2. The tire is hands-down one of the best all-terrain tires on the market and should be on the very short list of all-terrains to consider. While sizing and availability may be constrained during the rollout period, BFG tells us it has an incredible 61 sizes planned for the KO2, and we think they are worth the wait. BFGoodrich is once again redefining what an all-terrain can and should be with the All-terrain KO2: a worthy successor to BFGs long line of bar-setting all-terrain tires.
lots of other good brands out there I'm sure but I'll stick to what I know and had great service out of..

these are also the only brand we stock for all of our 4wd light trucks in our fleet at work, several hundred of them..

my local tire shop of 25 years has a set of 33x12.5r15s waiting for my burb for $800 otd so why bother shopping, lol..

good luck!

most recent set put on last fall


well over 10 years ago

Re: BFG All Terrain

so I'm stuck in socal until retirement while my aging mom holds down the fort until we get there..

she mentioned the '86 3/4 ton 4x4 needed tires and was asking my opinion..

so naturally I suggested these, no need to get mom wrapped around the axle shopping for tires when these will be ideal for the farm truck's duties..

couple of days later she tells me they're on order and should be arriving friday..

bracing myself for shock on how much she spent..... drum roll please..

$155/ea at Sam's in Independence for LT235/85R16 AT/KO2

she found an -$80/ea sale and ordered instead of settling for something else in stock..

my mom rocks!
