BF Goodrich All Terrain or Dunlop Mud Rover?

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forums and I have a 2004 WJ. I'm looking into the Rough Country 4" X Series Lift. I'm also looking to invest in 32x11.5 r15 tires. I would like to know everyone's thoughts on the BF Goodrich All Terrain or Dunlop Radial Mud Rover. This will be my DD and I'm looking for a nice trail rig.

Thanks guys,

CS

Hey how would you rate the GG AT2's when it comes to mud and snow? I've got the bfg at's on my f350 and they're great but so damn expensive

BFG AT KO all day. Last forever, quiet, and dig like a mole. There is a reason they are expensive. You get what you pay for.

Ive done very will with BFG AT KO. Much better rain performance than my previous Continentals and quieter too. My last set lasted close to 80K, I'm on another set now.

They're good in rain, ok in snow, pretty good in general off roading, but not particularly good in mud.

AT2's do good in mud, snow, sand, and are great on the road. BFG's are built better and have a better reputation.

I can tell you from personal experience that the BFG AT K/Os are a very quite tire for an AT on the road and they did great for me in light mud, fairly thick sugar sand, and rocky terrain but nothing spectacular. They did their job and I never got stuck because of the tire......Only my own stupidity when I tried to do something that I shouldn't have, which I guess is the best you can ask for.....Also, my BFGs lasted close to 80k miles without rotating as often as I should have. Rotate them properly and I have no doubts that they'll last 80K miles +.

I have nothing to add on the Dunlops.....Never owned any of those.

I stopped buying BFG ATs when the prices went up.. tried Bridgestone revos, nice for 10k, then turned to junk. Tried Yokohama ATs, good, but very mild tread that's fine in the deserty area I live in. Tried nitto tera grapplers, ok but wore fast. Now I'm on the general at2s, so far I think I've found a new standard. Basically the same performance as my old favorite BFG ATs, but 40% less $$$..

This was my experience with the Generals. I used them on my old F350 when it was new tire time. I was very impressed at how quiet they were on the highway. They worked very well in the rain and snow, they supported the weight of anything that got dumped into the bed of the truck. I had no issues with those tires at all and when I sold the truck in the spring, I had about 20K hard miles on them and they showed no signs of wear.

I had load range E on the truck, the same load range that the BFG's were. I personally wouldn't put a tire with that kind of load rating on a WJ, the Jerps just don't weigh enough to make use of them. I'd be looking at a load range C at the highest, but honestly a P rated tire is fine for these vehicles.
