I've used BFG AT's in the past on Ford 4X4 trucks and the negatives are true with the exception of premature wear...they wear like iron. On my last Ford (F250HD) I bought a set that I had on the truck for 4 years and had 38,000 miles on them when I sold it. The guy that bought it added another 10,000 before he rolled the truck on black ice and totaled it out....but not because of the tires....he parted it out and got good money for the wheels and tires.For folks that don't care for the BFG AT, I'm curious what they would recommend in an all-terrain tire. I don't plan on running M/T's anytime soon since I use my trucks as daily drivers.
As you can read above, I really don't like those tires, really can't stand'em...How are these tires in sand? I ride at the beach a lot.
X2 :cheers:the BFG's have the balance IMO to be almost the perfect tire, while they are not the best Sand, Snow, Street, Rock, Towing tire they are at the top in every category, they have amazing wear and longevity, are quiet and have a wide range of sizes and load ranges. Very hard to beat and have always switched over to the BFG's even after looking at other tires, everyone just keep coming back for 20 years to the same tire says allot about the tire and it capabilities. "My Humble Opinion"
Confirmed. Grabber AT2 has the snowflake on. They're pretty good on snow. IMO way better than the AT KO.In British Columbia ( BC ) Canada we have a few mtn hwys that are snow tire or chains only in winter conditions even if you have 4wd. They will turn you around or you will be fined in the case of a accident and your insurance may not cover. BFG AT ko sold in Canada have a snowflake( cdn winter standards stamp) on them and they pass as snow tires there that good. I think there is one other AT that passes as well the General Grabber AT.
I admit they are a great snow tire as we here in Calgary get tons of snow , however after last winter (which was one of the worst in history for snow amount and ice) they are probably one of the worst tires I've driven on ice! I had a couple of instances where the FJ ended up doing 360's and that was on a side ice covered street in 4 wheel drive under the speed limit to boot!! Very Scarey tire on solid ice surfaces but wonderful in deep snow!! Am getting a set of the very best ice tires around (Nokian Hakka-5's) have friends with these on their FJ's and say it's by far the grippiest tire on ice they've ever had & hardly ever use 4x4 anymore when on ice!In British Columbia ( BC ) Canada we have a few mtn hwys that are snow tire or chains only in winter conditions even if you have 4wd.

Ok, so I've done my research, searched the forum, other sites, read tire reviews, called local tire places and I've heard that these tires are:
• Extremely dangerous in wet conditions
• Have horrible tread wear
• Perform bad in snow (treads fill in)
• And are expensive and just for looks
Who has experienced this? Is this true?
I'll read tons of posts slamming the BFG AT's, but then hear the direct opposite 50% of the time, but from people that sound almost like they're just defending their pricey aggressive style shoes.
Owners of BFG AT KO's what say you?
