ANOTHER TIRE THREAD!!!!! friggin newbs just kidding...I love me some BFG's all day long great tread life....good on road manners, siped for snow and ice, decent sidewall protection (for those full speed curb assaults at the mall) QUIET, balance very wellI've always run ATs or MTs and am now on my first pair of swampers. I dont recommend the Swampers on road
Truxus, 35x12.5x15, MY personal preference DanS
how does the BFG stack up in sidewall strength??
i thought you was the tire expert? why did u hate the BFG muds? I have always had positive experiences with them
I have worked at Tire Pros for the last year now, and I would have to say that you definately dont want to go with the BFG AT. They become unbalanced very quickly. The mojority of the customers that come in because their lifted truck shakes, have BFG At's. I'm not sure if you're familiar with road force measurement, but the BFG's always have the highest. Which is bad. I have personally run some smaller BFG AT's on my truck when it was stock height, (30x9.50's), and I hated them. I reballanced them every couple thousand miles, and they were always out by an abnormal amount. The only positive side of them, is that I havent seen them become very choppy at all on any of the trucks I have worked on. They seem to wear decently.
By your post I'll guess you're leaning towards an A/T type tire, Yes? I had a set of 31" BFG A/T's and sadly while they were only 31's they did awesome for most all around wheelin'. Surely, they're no "Bogger" but they were great on the street and did amazingly well in dirt, sand, even some slick mud (not deep, of course) and in some of the rocks that I managed to get myself into... I was rather bummed though when one of them started to seperate on me (seems a bit common with these ) when I probably still had about 30-40% tread life on them so I switched them out for some other A/T's that I had floating around which did rather well also. With most recent upgrades on my rig I've gone with the BFG mudders (35's) that I had from my chevy. I've seen those in action as well and I like 'em. Hope you find something to satisfy your needs.
Whoo BFG'S have great sidewall strengths, even when aired down
im not really "leaning " towards anything, but i will tell you this, ive owned my runner for about 5 years, and in the first 4.5, i only put like 3k miles on it, ive put 4k on it in the last 6 months, so i drive it more now, and hate the annoyance of a unbalanced tsl at 70mph for 60 miles
I would always air mine down to 8-10 pounds and that was before I had onboard air...in the snow like 4 or 5 psi...never lost a bead or anything..maybe im just lucky
Dan, my first set of Truxus 33x12.5x15 took a beating, even when aired down, I ripped one of the bead, re-set it and drove on.I wore them for three years, including the letting go of one belt which required a lot of re-balancing. I still have the tires mounted and put them on when I want to beat the crap out of something L O L Hope it helps, DanS
u misspelled "question" in the thread title
He's a tire expert, not a spelling teacher.
On the road the are great, even all year long, they have a softer compound and great siping for ice and snow traction - within reason, I run 'aussie' lockers front and back and they can make a fool of a great set of tires.My latest set the 35's have no more road noise than a meaty set of snow tires and balancing, all 5 tires where no less than 3/4 ounce to 1.75 ounces.DanS
What about the new BFG km2. the side walls are supposed to be tough, nice aggressive tread blocks, quiet on the highway, and Q rated too ! (good for over 100 mph)(the reviews make em sound sweet anyway) I know BFG's aren't everybody's favorite tire but thought I'd throw in I haven't got a set now but I intend to once I have enough lift.
