Yeah I've had a couple sets of the bfg ats and loved them. I highly recommend them for anybody looking for some aggressive ats. I plan on running them on any daily driven 4x4. Just want an mt for the blazer this time.

Went into Discount Tire this afternoon and got the tires ordered. I got lucky, they are on backorder but there were 4 in state. It would also appear Goodyear is offering the 33" Kevlar with black lettering now, however they are a bit more expensive per tire, which brought the total up to 1072$. They should be here next week!

Once I get them I'll confirm they are black lettering.

Mine are black lettering 33's... Of course, they were originally white, but a little leather dye did the trick. 10 minutes and they're mounted correctly and with black letters--and cheaper.

I would have gone white lettering to save money, but who knows how long I would have had to wait. There were 2 white letters at Goodyear in Denver, but I would have had to wait a long time time for 2 more since they are on backorder. The set of 4 in Grand Junction were black lettering.

Plus the salesman was nice and cut the difference in half to an extra 5$ a tire instead of 10$. Plus I still get the 100$ rebate so....


Of course if I go to pick the jeep up and they're white lettering I'll demand my 20$ back!

Thanks for the feedback guys. Can't wait to get some of these kevlars!

Argh, I got a call from discount tire saying the tires were here, but when I went over there they said they made a mistake in calling because only 3 were there, the 4th is still MIA. They don't know why the 4th is on a different truck. I could see the 3 stacked next to the observation window though and I was drooling the whole time.

I'll bet tomorrow the other shows up.

You will be disappointed with them. Id pick a different tire before you own them. Some thornbirds would be alot better on and off road.
































































I had to wait when i got them a couple years ago now IIRC, But well worth it. They kick *** off road and the sidewall has held up great with no rash but some minor chunking and rounding of the lugs.

When they show up and you get them mounted, Make sure they get them perfect the first time around. The tire will have a dot from the factory marking the heavy spot in the tire and if they have to break it down oh well. When you get them balanced within 4oz they are like glass. I have up to 8oz on a couple and can notice a big difference. Good luck either way

Well, unsurprisingly they're white letters, and of course they gave me 20$ bucks back. Look good though, just need to get rid of the stupid spice windows, cold weather came sooner than expected.

Get the KM2 then, it's a MT. The MT/R isn't a MT.

MT/R = Maximum Traction/Reinforced

It's a rock tire.

This may be true but they do work pretty well in the mud. MUCH better than the previous tread pattern and better than most MT's out there.

You are paying way to much for those tires.

I know you could find them a bit cheaper online, but I got them with a 100 rebate for labor day. By the time you put together the full cost of getting them on the jeep it all came about the same and discount tire was most convenient. Plus I got 20 cash back since they weren't black lettering.

If it weren't for the rebate I would have bought somewhere else.

I could go through all the pricing I came up with while researching but that would probably bore you.

Personally, I disagree. I found them cheaper online too but all of the shops around here charged twice as much for mounting/balancing if you bring your own tires in versus ordering through them. I paid $1050 for (4) 33x12.50x15's with lifetime rotation and re-balance. It was worth it.

Have you actually put the tires to work yet? If so, I'm sure you're grinning ear to ear.

PS. If you want to black the letters out, get the Kiwi leather dye at the grocery store in BLACK. It's a little bottle with a sponge on the end. It takes a little bit of work, but I bet you can have the lettering blacked out in less than 30 minutes. Just make sure the tires are good and clean first and they'll come out great.
