Pro Comp A/T?

OK went to get some bfg a/t and every place I called said it was on back order for 10 weeks nation wide. So I need a tire now so I'm looking at the pro comp all terrain any body ever ran them? they look like a decent tire but I don't know much about them.

Heres a site to look at them.http://4wheelonline.com/ProCompAllTe...res.349.122528

I run Toyo m/t's but if I wanted an a/t I'd go with the Toyo a/t's they are really nice on the road and surprisingly capable off pavement. The Toyo's consistently take less weight to balance than others, they are just a well made, round tire. Just my opinion

Their "xtreme" version is better. The BFG's don't even come with a tread wear warranty.

I know how loud these are i've had them for two yrs, ride great, good bite offroad, wear is excellent, but i'm tired of the noise, it's just as noisy as the m/t's
thats why I'm getting rid of these for the Hankook apl's or apt's can't remember which it is but my buddy's got a set and their quiet

Thanks for the help guys! If that pro comp is gonna be pretty loud I'm gonna keep looking. Wish I could wait for the bfg a/t but I got a guy wanting to buy mine for $200 so I got to do something this week.

This is not a joke. The BFG KM2, for example, is Q-rated, which means BFG actually took this tire on a treadmill at the tire's max rated load and maintained 99 mph for 20 minutes. It also means the tire overheated and failed at 112 mph, hence it not receiving the S-rating. I would be afraid to use the ProComp tire on the highway if it doesn't have a speed rating.

Explain to me where you could run 112mph for 20 min and why you'd want to in a 4wd tacoma!!!

my procomps are load rated E which means over 3600 lbs per tire at max tire pressure which is 65psi that means my truck would weigh 14,400lbs
how could you ever get close to that in a 4500lbs truck, so stop talking stupid sh*t


I have run my truck at 75mph for 4hrs solid and never had a problem and that was at 35psi

what the f*#k are you thinking????

i am just going to piggy back on your thread. How would you rate the KM2's with the A/T KO's. which would you thank would be better

Is the truck electronically limited to 75 mph? Have you never exceeded 75 mph? When driving long distance I've maintained 100 mph (set with cruise control) for over half an hour along with a few other vehicles. I'd hate to have the tire running at the edge of catastrophic failure. Whether the truck is 4x2 or 4x4 has nothing to do with it. If I didn't care for on-road performance, I would have bought a Rubicon. You don't have to drive at those speeds, but you should know the tire's speed rating so as to not exceed it.

FYI depending on size, you can get AT tires with T-speed rating (118 mph, same as OE Rugged Trails). Hankook RF10, Toyo Open Country and Bridgestone Revo2 are examples.
