I need to get new tires soon and I was wondering what everyone thought of BFG's new mud terrain tire?

i just got them on maybe about 3 weeks ago. so i dunno about 500 miles on them and there really all not that loud on the highway. then again i have ear bleeding exhaust, but when your doin about 5 miles an hour you can feel the tread, if you know what i mean. those are 37x12.5r17 tires by the way. i dont know how big your goin tho.

Had them on my 06 and I loved'em. If your willing to drop the cash on a set they are worth it.

I have a friend who has them on a power stroke....they do wonders in the deep snow.

For the money though, I would go to the Toyo m/t's. I have another friend who got 40,000 miles out of toyos. He DID rotate them every 3k miles though, which would be a pain in the butt, but still, thats pretty good for an aggressive mud tire.

Does anyone have them in 35" on a stock-suspensioned 3rd gen? I was just looking for a pic of anyone has one.

Also, I will say that I was a bit disappointed with the All-Terrain KOs I put on my 1/2 ton. They got hard before 1/2 tread, so they tended to be very slippy even with lots of tread on them.

Heres mine, 35s and leveled. I have about 1500 miles on them, they did really well in super gooey shallow mud. Havent had a chance to use them anywhere else though. So far I really like them. I picked these up mounted and balanced for $600 less than I was quoted on the Toyos. Toyos are good tires, but WAY TOO OVERPRICED. JMO

Also, I had the A/Ts in 33s before I got these. I hated them. Horrible in the dirt, snow, wet pavement. The only thing I liked about them is when I was done with them, they smoked off quite nicely.:thumbsup

yeah, don't get me wrong, I like the BGFs too. Toyos are spendy....but so are most of the bigger mud tires. IMO, if I spend the money for the tires, I want something that is going to last as long as possible. Also, the toyos are 10 ply and carry 'e' load rating, while the BFGs are 8 ply and only have a 'd' rating. I guess it all depends on how beefy of a tire you want, and the weight of the loads you will be hauling.
I wish BFG would make their m/t's with a 10 ply e rating...I would be sold on it!

True, I wish the BFGs were 10 ply, but for what I haul, I dont need the "E" rating. I just couldnt see paying $600 more for essentially the same thing.

anybody know if these will fit an 07 without a leveling kit? Im planning on installing a kit, but might be a little while. But would like to go ahead and get my tires replaced

Thanks

I do not rub with the leveling kit, however it is very close, the only place they have touched is on the upper control arm, and they barely kissed that. I dont think the 35 will fit without the leveling kit. I know the 285/70R17 fits without a leveling kit. A buddy of mine has that size on his 07 with NO rubbing issues anywhere.

I know the 35x12.50-17's are on back order right now if that’s the size you want to run. (if you place your order while we are having our sale you'll save 10%) We only need a small deposit to order the tires in for you. I think they are on back order for about 4-6 weeks right now. The 10% should save you enough money to buy the leveling kit and you'll have 6 weeks to get it put on... ;) (not to pressure, I am always looking to save a buck myself)
