View Full Version : Better than bfg a/t?

10-12-2011, 10:09 AM
Driving a chevy 2500 with 285 bfg a-t's on it. Like the bigger tires to make the work/personal truck look better. Like these because I think the knobby tires last longer in my opinion. Any tires better than these or maybe something that works better pulling the trailer? Need 285 75 r16 and don't go in the mud hunting like I use too so regular tires may work.

A guy I know has some Kumho Road Venture A/T KL78 tires on his 2500HD in the 285/75/16 and he likes them a lot he says. He says they are smooth on the road and not loud at all.

Cooper Discovery ATR's are long lasting, and have a great grip in wet and snow. I've got them on 2 trucks with no complaints and as a bonus, they're made in America.

Kelly fierce attitude's are awesome looking and they ride nice as well. I love mine. Also had some kumho road venture kl71's that i liked. Mickey thompson baja mtz radials, dick cepek fun country 2's, nitto dune grapplers, toyo open country at's... Just to name a few.

I have always ran bfg all terrains until this last time. I decided to go cheaper, so I bought cooper discoverer st-c tires. They only have 5000 miles on them, but they definitly don't have the traction of my bfg's. I will spend a little more next time.

Grizzly Grips are decent tires, they have a hard compound so they last long and there cheaper then bfg's.

I think I have run about 5 different sets of BFG All Terrains on different trucks I have owned over the years. These ranged from compact pickups to 3/4 tons. I have got very good service out of the BFG's. The main thing is to do periodic maintenance on them, like you would the rest of the vehicle. Keep them inflated to the proper air pressure, regularly rotated and balanced. If I remember correctly, I got 70,000 miles out of one set.......can't go wrong with BFG's !

Bfg radial long trail t/a or rugged trail would be a good fit for you. I use long trail on my f250 my explorer had rugged trails from the factory best set of tires I ever had on a SUV. I've tried contenintal and michelin but they always wore funny from higher speed turns the BFG don't round off the edges near as much.

Look at procomp. I run extreme at 2s they have about 10k and no signs of ware and a lot cheaper than the bfgs, they have more spacing than the bfgs so less clogging issues in the mud than the bfgs, which is a big issue with them.

Had 3 sets BFG A/T and One set BFG M/T. Went with Hankook DynaPro MT. Can't believe how quiet they are for an agressive tire.

Know a large fleet operater that will buy nothing but Hankook ATM and MT tires now and he's tried about everything.

General Grabber AT2 similar tread design as a BFG A/T but at 2/3 the price. Similar performance and road noise. I have had them on my wife's jeep for about 2 years, 25K miles and they are near the half way mark to being wornout. I don't know how well they do in mud but then are great for trail riding and snow.
