So what is the bottom line?
How long will BFG AT KO's last?
How long will Nitto's last?
Which has the better overall performance?
I will go with 265/70/17's by the way just to give me a bit bigger tire, but will that change my speedo and by how much?
as said above, the speedo will actually be more acurate with the 265/70s
the bfgs will last a little longer, but the cost evens things out. i did the math once, and the cost per mile you get out of each of the tires is pretty much identical (if that makes sense).
they are both a great tire on and off road, especially over stock. i run 265/70 TGs, and my buddy runs 265/70 BFGs. we have both had to pull each other out before while wheeling (we're the same skill level drivers).
so with the cost per mile driven being the same, and the performance being very close, i would say, just go with the one you like the look of more
