I replaced my pizza cutters with BFG MT KM and so I have four BFG AT 33"x9.50" for 15" rims. Anyone need them? They are safe, although I let them go a little long on the last rotation and the tread has some cupping. If you need a spare, these would be excellent since they fit in the stock location on most trucks AFAIK. They fit with good clearance on a stock 6" rim under the bed of mini trucks. Make offer, was thinking like a 20-spot each.

I think I can use them. How much life is left in them?

There's decent tread left. I got them in May 2004 and they have about 25,000 miles on them (my truck was out of action for about 7 months in winter of 2006/07 during the engine build). I will stick a depth gauge in the tread and let you know.

Looks like the tread depth goes from about 6/32 to 10/32. Closer inspection, I think I was running them a little low in pressure since the wear looks higher on the outer blocks rather than the middle.

Definitely seem OK for this summer and I never had an issue last winter. They'd for sure be just fine as spares, they're not worn beyond the sipes. Looks like on the BFG website, new 33x10.50 ATs have 16/32 of tread depth (which seems high, dunno). They probably have about 4/32 of tread life left, so say like 25% or 30% of their life still left.

EDIT: Sale pending.

are you willing to split them?

I would have, although Timm wants all 4. If for some reason he passes on them, I figured I'd end up selling them one-at-a-time to all the mini guys for spares...

Keep me in mind. I would really like one for a spare.

Ditto. For the DD I am building.

I would take all 4 if you want to sell em all.

In line after whoever.

Whoops, that's my bad for leaving y'all in the dark, Leif. Timm sent me a PM at 9:31PM last night asking about them and with the tread depth and photos, he said he'd definitely like them at 6:49AM this morning. Sorry for my foul up by not posting that very important tidbit.

No problem. Put me in line second if Timm can't use them.

It was a shifty thing to do, the backroom dealing. Honestly, I'm sorry it didn't occur to post it in the thread. Can I owe you a beer?

If it was shifty on my part, feel free to sell them to him!! Just used to the Mud way of PMing someone if I want something.

No, just talking about not letting other guys know you hit me first. I did enjoy the bottle of Courvoisier and box of Jose La Piedra cigars you FedEx'd over, though.

Not at all Timm. I just thought I missed something. Enjoy the tires. Are you putting them on your 40?

40 or 55, whichever gets on the road first. :)

My neighbor just bought a taco, and he'd be up for set for sure. Put me 304th in line or where ever I fall. :D

Thanks!

Hey Dave,

How did you like the BFG ATS?

I am looking at getting those or the Yokohama Geolanders. Need good snow traction also and not to noisy.

Any feed back you can throw at me would be much appreciated. That goes for all ya all...

I run BFG AT's on my FJ60. Great DD tires that can do trails and snow comfortably. They last a lot of miles too.

Thanks Martin!

Did you hear I survived Hells Gate the last day of CM? It was a little dicey but I made it. Dave was our leader again. He was great, as usual. Tollerated my rookie driving.. Now I need to lift it up before I scrap any more important parts....

No experience with much of anything but BFG ATs and MTs, so comparisons are pretty thin from me. I really wish some other companies made taller skinny tires for 15" rims, but since they don't and so I bounce back and forth between MTs and ATs. I've never had any issue with the ATs as a good all around tire. I do think the old style BFG MT is a handful on snowy roads and my personal experience is that siping doesn't really help all that much.

I did put Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVOs on the 4Runner, but it has not done anything beyond Boreas Pass and that sort of thing (which is it's job, easy trails, skiing, accessing trailheads with 3 passengers and gear). The tires did well going in the snow between work and home all winter, though. I would say they seem pretty similar to the BFG AT, maybe a little quieter. I've heard good things about the Yokohama Geolander, nothing wrong with them.
