Pictures of BFG All Terrains in 285 65 R20E for PKeel 08 6.4l

Here are some pictures. I was disappointed in the number of miles I got out of them. I have always been able to get 50K miles out of these tires but in a different size. I barely squeaked out 35k before these were toasted and that was with religiously rotating and balancing them. Currently running the stock Goodyears but thinkingly about getting some Toyo OPen Country MT's in the stock size.

Thank you for your info Surveyor13!!! I just ran across these pics. I want a wider than stock tire but not any taller. I'm going to get about 40 out of the stock Goodyears but I don't like them. Thanks again!!!

Since you have experience with both the BFG and stock Goodyears...

Which tire has more road noise?
Handeling differences?
Traction on/off road differences?

I will need new tires soon and find the Goodyears somewhat boring. I haven't had any issues with them, but...

I'm also considering the Michelin LTX2AT. I had those on my Duramax prior to this truck. While they don't look very aggressive, they seemed to have excellent off-road traction and wore well. They also stay in balance.

Thanks!

Jascott129,

I have found that the Goodyears are much louder than the BFG's were. I haven't seen much different in handling between the two. However the Goodyears break loose a lot easier. I agree that the Goodyears are a boring tire. But at the time I could not justify spending $360 per tire to get on 30K to 35K thousand miles out of the BFG's when I could get the Goodyears for $188 per tire.

Jerrod, I'm surprised to see this. I got great tread life with these tires in the past as well (got over 70k on a set in my half ton). When did you buy them? Were they new when you bought them? How often exactly did you rotate them? Just trying to figure out this mystery.

PS, I have mud terrains - Mickey Thompson MTZ tires on my truck now, 37 x 13.50, and I'm pushing 37,400 miles on them, and they're not ready to junk yet. Makes me wonder even more about those tires you have.

I bought them new at Discount Tire. Rotated and Balanced every 3000 miles. I have always been able to get at least 50,000 out of a set but these I did not. I was really surprised also.

BFG AT's normally last a long time there off traction is less then desirable for my taste but i have ran few sets in my day, just never on purpose they came on the vehicle i ran them bald and traded up to 19.5" wheels n MT's or MTR's if it was an 8 lug or 10 lug truck.

The 19.5 MT's last about 60-65K miles and the 19.5 MTR's last 70-75K miles, but those were Radials the biasply Super traction Mud tread 19.5's only lasted about 45-50K miles.

But the Snow/Sand Lug design tho biasply as well lasted 50-60K miles, and are a lot louder them the bais mud tires.

On my F-150 i Ran some TSL radial's those lasted 45K miles both sets 85% highway miles even. The SSR's lasted slightly longer. . .

all of which will routinely drive where BFG AT's dare not and the TSl's n SSR's last about as long and the 19.5's last longer
