Thanks!

Totally off topic, but Being there in Ontario I assume you are an Leafs fan?
No prob! I was able to do 100km/h on 2 lane unplowed country roads with 4 inches of snow, maybe more, with confidence.
The only thing that scared me was a deer, or as my 2 year old daughter said, look Eeyore

LOL i am

Great - thanks for the info - I just looked at the Dakota Definity A/T. All though it looks like a great All Terrain - it looks very standard - run of the mill. Nothing Magical about it - doesn't make it a bad tire but the BFG just looks like it would get me farther off road if I ever get the chance to use it in that regard. If the Definity A/T was that much cheaper than the BFG I'd choose it in a heart beat. But they are basically the same exact price with all the rebates that are flying around.

PS - Again off topic... sorry
Saw the end Rangers/Leafs game the other night after my Devils blew it with Buffalo. I dislike the Rangers but HATE the flyers. Rangers only seem to win lately with Talbot in Net. The problem is they don't pay him $8Mil a season! LOL

I ended up picking the BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain tires. Sears took good care of me so they got the business. I like them and the ride is so much different going from a mud terrain to an all terrain... some times I wonder am I really moving?!

So now that you have had them for a bit, how do you like them? I'm thinking of purchasing a set also at Sears but I'm definitely not getting as good of a deal that you got. They want 160$ a piece without installation. (which is fine since I can get them installed cheaper and more local than the store)

My brother has had a set of rugged terrains on his 4runner for about two years and they're awesome. I'll just say I like them enough that Im getting a set of 285/75/17 when i get my lift on.

Since I got them they have done really well for me. We had say.... 147 snow storms since I got them and other than on total ice (which nothing is good on) they have done great. I have not had them off road yet and won't until April but I have climbed a couple of snow piles for fun with little or no effort. I would say the only thing I really had to get used to was how smooth they run and how quiet they are. I know that sounds weird but coming from mud terrains it's like night and day - it was almost like I was wondering are my tires even contacting the road?! I would definitely recommend them if you want an aggressive looking semi-all terrain.

You go to walmart to buy your underwear, not to buy tires.
