BFG All-Terrain or Kelly Safari ?

It's finally time to get some new tires. When I bought my 2001 DC a couple of years ago, it had some brand new Laramie "Performer SUV" tires on it. It's been a good tire with over 61,000 miles. Now that I've worn them out, I want a more aggressive tire. I drive between 60-80 hwy miles four days a week and off road a few times a month. I do alot of camping and paddling , so in need a tire that gets me in and out. I'm trying to decide between 2 tires ( 265/75R/16): BFG All-Terrain T/A KO or Kelly Safari TSR. I like the looks of the Kelly, but I like the BFG for it's long tread life. I will be saving $182.00 by going with the Kelly. This way I can use the savings to buy part of my Bilstein 5100's. The big question to y'all is, which tire to get? Thanks, Frank

Neither. Go with Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs. I just replaced a set of BFG KOs and had constant balancing issues and they were puncured twice in the sidewall and the tread by TINY rocks. I don't mud or rock climb these were just tiny rocks on the highway. That being said I went with a more agressive tire that has a better reinforced sidewall which was the Duratracs. I've had them for about 2-3 weeks now and they are AMAZING.

x2 on Goodyear Duratracs.

Duratracs = for awesome traction while off-roading
Michelin LTX MS 2 = highway tire and good MPG

duratracs and kelly's are basically identical tires

Kelly's are cheaper though and don't have severe snow rating
