Opinions on TV tires - BFG Rugged Terrains

I am purchasing new tires for the Liberty in P245/70R16 size. I am leaning towards the BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain. I have dedicated snows, so I just need summer tires. Anyone use these? Opinions on these and others would be great.

Got them in stock P225/75R16 size, which is the OEM tire and it feels like towing on Jello. I use my Firestone Winterforce P245/70R16 on when I tow. Would the P245 /70R16 SR/A's be any different?

I like BFG's. The Rugged trails came stock on my F450.

The one's on my 05 Silverado are 17" and are LR E 10ply and are excellent for towing.

They don't make them in LT my size. But, I am mistaken. The Jeep came with one SR/A and 4 ST. I will look into them, though. Are they an AT?

I don't believe I need LTs because the Winterforces feel solid. I do have an LT on the short list. Falken Wild Peaks.

The Rugged Trail came on my Tundra new. They wore bad after 20000 miles with religious rotations and air pressure tests. I was on a backroad and got a puncture on a rock that was not sharp or pointy at all. It was not fun changing that tire on uneven ground in the middle of the night with my then 2 year old and my wife holding her iPhone for enough light for me. We were not towing just driving on an old forest service road.

Worthless in my opinion but to each their own.

I upgraded to the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac E load tires and have 350000 on them and they have plenty of Tread
