    I like BFG all terrain's. To me they have good traction and wear pretty good. I had a set on my 99 superduty and am waiting for my current set of rugged trails on my 04 superduty to wear down. Then I will get a set of all terrains.:D :D

    Search the for the "Tire Size" thread. There is a lot of info on tires that people use. Check the spare too. Mine had the rim rust so bad it would not hold air anymore.

    Set of BFGoodrich for sale

    I agree with you guys. You can't beat them for on/off road performance. I lifted my truck and am trying to sell my 265/75/16 BFGoodrich rugged terrains, so I can replace them with the same tire just a couple sizes larger. They have no cuts, scrapes and all the sidewall writing is as white as ever. They have 7000 miles on them and a warranty to 50K. $275.00 takes, let me know.

    I have Goodyearv Wrangler RTS on my truck. They give me all year, all weather good performance. I hear from everyone BFG is best but I'm happy with my Goodyears and plan to stick with them!

    I Have BFG AT's as well...Great for traction...but kind of annoying to me because they leave little frozen trails of snow out of the tread everywhere. I'm thinking about Cooper Discoverer's for my next tires..what do you guys things?

    Got a 96' Dodge Ram 1500. Had LT285/75/15 Kelly Safaris on it when I bought it used, they were ok but to big and wide. Just put LT265/75/15 Bridgestone Dueler AT'S on and love them , great traction dry/rain/snow. The Dueler REVO AT'S are supposed to be even better.
