We need to put new tires on the :Princess: ride,

I"m going with 285's and would you put NItto's or BFG a/t's?

Nitto's are cheaper, lighter, and more road-friendly. If the truck never leaves the pavement, it probably makes more economical sense to go with the Nittos.

Yeah, no offroad for it...just a :Princess:mobile.

Nitto's $756 out the door for 4
BFG a/t's $810 out the door for 4

A buddy of mine had the Nitto's on his F350, and they didn't wear well, at all. My D rated BFG's went 45K, and could have gone further but I wanted to replace them before winter. I went with another set, though E-rated this time. Love 'em.

Hmmm - I thought you could get Nittos for about $150 / tire for 285's; maybe they've gone up. That price doesn't make much of a difference. Like ScaldedDog said, they will wear faster, so it's probably a toss up on cost.

I have always run the BFG KOs and have had good luck with them.

Ended up getting BFG A/T's 285's for the wife's ride. Here's a pic of hers with the OME stock height and 285's, and mine with 35" M/T's

I need some 285s also. I looked on line and the BFGs were getting slammed by user ratings...Have any you considered the Michelin LTX A/T 2s? Great ratings both on and off the road. I think they are supposed to be good for 65K.

I thought my BFG ATs were great tires.

Yeah, I think they are a great A/T tire. We just got back from a 500 mile trip to Nebraska, part of it in a blizzard/ice and they performed awesome.

Gotta love Nebraska :mad: (i hope I don't have to go back!)

That is a 96 Moonglow/ICE color combination :rolleyes:

My experience with BFG AT are that they wear like iron but provide less than satisfactory snow traction. I will never buy another set if snow is in the forecast.

If I was still TLCA webmaster, I would have made that "picture of the week!"

Maybe we need a Rising Sun "Picture of the Week" thread.

For an AT tire that will be a daily driver and see significant off-road time, the BFG KO is tough to beat. Mine do a nice job sticking to the rocks in Moab. Besides the KO's, I'd consider the Nittos that FJBen was looking at, or GY Silent Armors. The Cooper ST is also a pretty decent tire, and is available in 255/85.

The 80 crowd on MUD is completely sold on Bridgestone Revos for 285's in an AT. That's what I would be getting for a road rig in CO given all the reports of how good they are in moderate depth and icy hardpack snow and for road use.

I used to have to pull out my neighbor in his Taco on BFG AT's all the time in the snow, he's running Revos now and has his manhood back :D

The Michelin's are great and wear the best, but if you are going to do any off-roading get the BFG's. I work at a tire shop and that seems to be the tire of choice for anyone who does any off-roading what-so-ever (myself included).

These are probably what the :Princess:'s 80 will be getting this year. We had them on both the Liberty and the Durango back when and they worked great for in town rigs, both light and heavy. I'll buy them and a month later she'll decide it is time to sell the 80 :rolleyes:
