I will be updating this thread as time progresses to point out how these tires are doing. When looking to replace the crap tires that are the Rugged Trails only two choices came up, either the BFG AT or the Revos. These two tires have the Taco forums cornered. Unfortunately, I saw the BFG AT's as too expensive and too much for me to be honest. The Revos were my choice, but they were nowhere to be found. I had to look elsewhere and fell on what at first glance is a great tire...
I researched the forums and the only real bad thing anyone could say about them is that they were hard to balance. (so are the Revos though) The thread design is rugged and aggressive but not as aggresive as the BFG's. On the drive home last night they felt well planted with similar road noise to the OEMs. I took a huge detour on the way home and took them on the loopy up and down highway that made the 5 mile trip into a 20 mile trip, but hey, I wanted to taste the highway. The balance was dead on, on the first try. No vibrations up to 80mph.
This morning, my wishes came true and it was raining. I got to test them in the rain, and again took the long way to the train station. To leave my community there is only one exit, and that exit is sloped and slippery when wet. On every single ocassion I tackled that same intersection with the OEM's I had some tire spin. Guess what, took off without issue. The whole trip was as if the road was dry. Exactly what u would expect from a set of tires dignified to carry my truck. I will be taking a long trip next weekend and will surely see some dirt and probably old ice.
Like I said, I will continue updating this thread as time progresses.
