    By BFG M/Ts are done. I need new tires on my F250 315 75 16.

    Since I care more about snow, ice, slush traction than dirt, mud I am thinking about going the A/T route instead of M/T because the M/Ts are awful in the winter. The M/Ts look cool but-whatever. 99% of the miles are pavement or dirt roads. Nothing gnarly

    I am not particularly fond of how wide the tire is but I want to keep the height.

    Talk me into or out of out of the BFG A/Ts. Other brands?

    Thanks,
    MF

    right now i have a 2000 F250 diesel ex cab long bed with a set of 285/75/16 sport kings on it. there at about half tred and have 40k miles on them and i have only rotated them once at like 25k. they dont do bad geting aroudn the farms they didnt do the best in this last snow we got(over 12 inches) but i think part of that was due to my truck not haveing a locker and 4wd is realy 2wd(one frunt and one rear spining)

    edit: the truck in my sig or what ever isnt the one im talkin about its rolling on 39 inch mickys

    I just put a set of BFG AT K/O's on my truck. They're a good tire.

    Yeah I have worn out a bunch of the the ATs on other vehicles and I always liked them. I am just afraid the Goateed good ol boys is their shiny mall crawlers will laugh at me if I don't have M/Ts on my truck:rofl:

    I have a 3/4 ton dmax and just got rid of a trail truck ('72 K5), bought at least 7 sets of tires between them and for a mostly road truck I would go KO at most. The muds are great for mud, but suck at 75 MPH and wear faster.

    I will say that I have been looking at these for the next Dmax meats:

    Had a few friends with 3/4 and 1 ton trucks that are very happy with them.

    look at micky thompson & cooper's...they last longer & do perform well, most of my driving is back & forth to work also, they have good tread life...nitto's are great, but only lasted me 28K, bfg mud & at's are over rated IMO....my buddy has khumo's on his F-250 & loves 'em...go to tire rack.com...they have some pretty good info, search around...& good luck

    Ah the mall crawler crowd.

    They get real quiet when they hear the V-8 exhaust on my 85 4runner on 39.5 Boggers. They see all the dents & scratches from real off-roading & get out of the way.

    I used to have Wildcats, but the tread started separating on all four of them at the same time, and they were only halfway through their tread life. I now have Maxxis Bighorns on my truck and I'm really happy with them.

    Another vote for Maxxis Bighorns.

    If you want something more A/T take a look a Nitto Terra Grappler.

    I've used BFG Dueller AT's in the past when I had a truck, and I was very happy with them. This was several years ago though.

    Hmmm. An AT tire with the MT styling. I like. Seems like they have good reviews.

    I have Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo on my Expedition, and they do good on the ice and pretty good offroad, they ride great, and are fantastic in the rain. I don't think they make them in a size that big though.

    Take a look at the Mickey Thompson ATZs and the Cooper Discoverer STTs, I have heard good things about both.

    This. The original All-Terrain. I sell and install lots of BFGs at work, and I highly recommend them. They are long lasting, tend to wear evenly, are relatively quiet, and offer great traction. Almost every size also qualifies for the RMA's severe snow traction rating(same as a dedicated snow tire.) Definitely one of our best selling tires.
