I know vehcle has a little to do with how well a tire performs. i have seem the BFG's go good on some trucks, but suck on others. in my experience, they dont go more than they do go off road. on my GMC i ran multi-mile Wild Country's. they out-preformed the BFG's on my buddies truck (same truck, only difference is year) in every condition from snow, mud, wet grass, and even on pavement. I will run the Wild Country's on pretty much every vehicle i have. plus they are cheaper than the BFG's as well, i paid $130 mounted and ballanced a tire for my 33's. as soon as i get a jeep, it will be getting a new set of 30x9.50's.

Courser C/T's (made by cooper I believe) kinda in between an MT and an AT. Pretty good tread voids, lots of siping(nice to have when doing a highway commute during a snow storm in the dark). Some people get 60k miles out of them. Plus they're cheap. THose new cooper stt's lokk great I may have to look into them.
BTW I'd prolly run mt's if it weren't for the snow.

If no mud is invloved at all you will get a lot of votes for the BFG AT's. Great tire but a bit spendy. They do great everywhere as long as there is no mud since they don't clean out well at all.

If it was me I would pick the BFG MT over the AT even if I never saw mud. They seem to get more miles, drive better, more aggressive, and plain look better.

However, if you want to think out of the box a bit you can save some money. BFG's are spendy, no doubt. If you like their MT look into the Kumho Venture MT. They are quite a bit cheaper and appear to have all the same characteristics of the BFG, including tread life. Haven't heard a complaint about them yet.

If you want something more aggressive look into the Trxus MT. Its a heavy tire that balances poorly but is real aggressive and still cheaper than the BFG's but a little more than the Kumho's.

If you are mainly gonna drive pavement get the Kumho's or throw down for the BFG's.
Huh!?!?!? $508 EACH?????? wtf? wrong Kumho's?http://www.tirebuyer.com/tires/kumho...Fcbb4AodsDEAxw

Definity Dakota a/t or m/t. They are Pep Boys special, but I've run both and they are great tires on and offroad. I believe they are the Cooper Stt's sibling, and you can get 5 for around 600 I believe. They run a deal buy 3, get the 4th half off or something.
