Choochoo, be careful on the BFG's there are two
different "Rugged" tires. The Rugged Trail is the less aggressive tread. This tire has been around for awhile. The Rugged Terrains came put almost 3 years ago and are a little more aggressive, but not as aggressive as the TA KO's.

Good info Flag Gang. My previous assertion was based on the Rugged Trail, which like I said before I was not a fan of.

Thanks. It is the Rugged Terrain that I am looking at. That and the Destination AT are my 1 and 2 that I have to decide on. I saw a decent review on them in one of the diesel magazines.

On tire rack, other people got them confused, also.

Mine have not cupped at all, and I run about 32 f and 34 rear for my pressures in my Tundra. Depending on the weight of your vehicle, the pressure is what will cause these to cup so I have been told. Try to not run to high of pressure in them except when towing.
I run my rears @ 80PSI and the fronts @ 65PSI per the door sticker and based on recommendations from GY and the tire place.
Glad to hear you do not have issues!

You just said they were cupping, so that's kind of an issue. I can't believe your tire place recommends those pressures. Mine told me never to run to the max pressure unless I have the max carrying capacity over those tires!

I got 75,000 out of the OE Rugged Trails on my 05 Ram and 80,000 on my 13,000# service truck. I currently have the Rugged Trails on my service truck now with 20,000 on them and they are wearing great. A little side note also, it has never been on an alignment rack with 150,000 miles on the clock.

I have the rugged terrains on my F350. Great tire so far. Wearing evenly, good smooth ride, and quiet.

I had the older less aggressive style as OEM on my Dodge 2500 back in 05. I had planned to swap them for something more aggressive as soon as they wore out (no sense throwing away a good tire even if you don't like it.) I was towing one of my Jeeps a lot then, large muddy parking areas, pasture roads etc.

I was really impressed with those BFG's. The on road ride was great, but they did awesome off road and in particular in snow. When they finally wore out at 87K, I put another set on.

They were way better than any Goodyear product I have ever run.

Last truck had hankook dynapro ATM's which also impressed me both with traction, road manners and also lengevity.

I have never had good luck with bfg's on my truck s. My trucks have been all 3/4 ton diesels but maybe a tire is a tire not sure.
I have had great luck with the
Cooper Discovery AT/R
Nitto Terra Grappler.
Of course all in load E.

I run BFGs on my '10 dually, Cooper SRMll highway treads on my "01 dually and Firestone Transforce on my Excursion. I like them all on the trucks they are on. If this is going to be strictly a highway tire, then I wouldn't look at any of the all terrains, but if it is going off road any at all, then I would look at the A/Ts first. Lots of tires and opinions out there. Everyone uses their trucks a little differently and no two of us drive the same or keep them up the same. You'll just have to do some research and make the final decision yourself. Good luck and let us know what you chose and why. Might give someone else a good idea. Good luck.
