    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.

    Thanks guys. I'll look into these. I'm way past having the "cool" brands so I'm open to anything!

    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 !
