I know it's an old thread but I've had both. The Silent Armors are shit. While on a trail with my Ranger and other Ranger buddies I couldn't climb a simple snow covered section of paved road. I was at the bottom in 2nd gear 4wd high spinning all 4 tires not going anywhere while another 4wd Ranger cruised up the same hill with no problem while on BFG ATs. I switched to BFG and never looked back.

I know this is old, but just saw it. Love my BFGs!

Ignorant question part 1: TX, is that Texas Edition?
Part 2: If yes, they sell those in Cali?

No. It is just an over priced package. Check out Toyota.com for full details on it.

Here's a survey from Tire Rack: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey....jsp?type=ORAT

Shows the Goodyear SA's and Firestone Destinations scoring well ahead of the BFGs. fwiw

bfgs' are crap compared to silent armor. the only people who say otherwize have never owned a set. I have and can tell you the goodyear is by far the better tire. the rides better, the tractions better, the mileage warranty is better, and in my opinion the goodyear looks better.

i have had my BFG AT's for a few years now and i have to say "they aren't worth shit for wet handling"

very unpredictable

sometimes they will not get traction, sometimes they will skid.
i have had to change my driving in wet to a very cautious style....never had to do this before with any other tire.


i have been eyeballing the Silentarmors

I have had BFG's on several trucks and bought a Jeep with Silent Armour and had major balancing issues...even the guys at the Goodyear tire shop said that they have had troubles balancing other Silent Armours. Needless to say I bought new tires and gave them away.

I know everbody drives in different situations and conditions, but here are my thoughts on the two tires. Living in Colorado I drive a lot of different conditions during all seasons. I travel daily on unpaved/unmaintained roads as well as lots of travel into the mountains in winter as well as summer. The average snowfall in my area is 200 inches but thats deceiving because it rarely comes down in less than 2' increments. We have frequent high wind conditions (30-60 MPH) with ground snow leaving some areas completely clear and some with 3'-8' drifts. We get spring wet snows that can be almost unpassable due to weight and depth. During bad storms I carry my Husqvarna snow thrower in the back of my truck for weight as well as the chance I might need to blow out a drifted road to get through. My mechanic covinced me to put a pair of silent armors on to replace a pair of BFG's a while back claiming that they were much better in the snow. I used them 6 months and sold them to get BFG's. The Goodyears preformed poorly on slick packed snow, as well in wet snow. They were about even with the BFG's in deep light snow conditions. However, the biggest reason was the lack of weight and strength of the tire and its sidewall. They did not hold up well to towing, plowing and heavy loads and were poor at best with chains. (I can hear some of you now, "If the tires were any good you wouldn't need chains". Well if that works for you great. But come drive what I drive before you judge.) Granted I was using them on a different truck as I did not have my Tacoma yet but I do not believe they would have acted much differently and I use my Tacoma for many of the same tasks. Both preformed well on paved roads and at high speeds but the silent armors tended to drift more and wear unevenly. I have used BFG's for many years and I wont stray again.

Gotta say i really don't like the wrangler dura trac..They have no traction on wet surfaces. Maybe my truck is too light and the tires don't bite..don't know..all i know is i slide allover the damn place..

the bfg's are the same way..very sketchy in the corners on wet asphalt and pavement..

Im thinking of a 10 ply silent armor tire would be better.. i ve used them before.. and they are great in wet conditions and hold up to gravel well.
