I wouldn't say "junk" as they've brought me many places on sick trails. Granted I'm not going balls-out as I've seen in some of the videos here, but my stock TRD Tacoma on BFG all terrains made it up Elephant Hill in Canyonlands with relatively no problems.
Plus like you said in the last sentence... I don't wheel all the time, in fact barely nowadays, so I look for an all around performing tire. Most imporantly is safety on snow-packed mountain passes when I'm driving up (and equally as important: down) I-70 to go snowboarding. Then the next priority is durability and how they hold up with the brutal UV we get here, hot summers and cold winters, and finally overall gas mileage and rideability.
For me I'll never guy anything other than BFG all terrains. They've just proven to be the best all around tire for my needs time and time again.
