In that price range, your only other legit tire would be the Falken Wildpeaks which are actually superior in tread design compared to the BFG's (out-dated). I was very close to buying them, so I did a lot of research. The Falkens have great traction in rain and are equal to BFG's in winter conditions. They also will clean out better in mud... just look how the tread blocks line up. Another thing to consider is sidewall strength. The wildpeaks are near bulletproof, just search on youtube. Very impressive. They are a heavier tire and are harder to balance on some occasions. I feel the performance outweighs how heavy they are.
Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.
