    I am interested in purchasing these for my PreRunner access cab but I'm not too sure if I wanna spend the money on them. If anyone has these and cares to share their input that would be greatly appreciated!!

    I have them and love them. Some people don't like them, but i have run them on my last 3 trucks, and its the only tire i use. Lived in Colorado, Nebraska, Louisiana, and SoCal, and they have been great in every scenario i have run into. Of course i also don't drive my truck with mud up to the flares, but i do take my trucks out on and off of the trails.

    I used to run them exclusively....Then I tried the Nitto Terra Grapplers, and I have been running them ever since. They grip MUCH better than the BFG's.....in EVERY type of terrain.

    Yeah I am just starting to get into off roading so the tires wouldn't see much but it's between those or the Wrangler SilentArmors. I have read more bad reviews like terrible tread length and such with the BFG's, but here I have read nothing but good reviews. Now as for the Wranglers I have read that they are extremely weak in the sidewalls.

    Thanks for the input guys!

    BFG AT's are expensive, but worth every penny IMO. I usually get about 60K miles out of a set. I don't do much (if any) trail riding or off-roading, but I like the way they look and they are great in the snow.

    BFGs are way overpriced for the quality. Its like people buy them for the glamour aspect of them being THE offroad tire. They do look very aggressive, but Personally I drove my friends jeep with KOs and his friends first gen with nitto terra grapplers. The terra grapplers VASTLY outperformed the BFG in almost every situation, especially on road.

    Now i need to find someone with bridgestone dueler revos to try out...

    Do you really think that you can do an honest comparision when driving two vehicles that are so vastly different?

    I'm sure there are some differences between the two tires, but a Jeep and First Gen Taco are built and handle totally different.

    They grip better in the snao we have out here, than the BFG's do.

    I agree with rocketball. You cant compair a truck to a suv. I had a set of bfgs on my last truck (a ranger) and they performed very well and got a lot of miles. They are also awesome in the snow. I just purchased another set of bfgs for my taco altho they are the mt's. My buddy has a full size chevy with the nittos and he isnt to happy with them but go with the ones you like you will be a lot happier.

    Chris have you noticed the Nittos dry rot. I had a set and they dry rotted after a couple summers here in Vegas.

    Interesting....I have never had that happen. I have had 4 sets of Terra Grapplers since 2000, and never had that issue? :confused:

    x2, had the bfg's on every truck i have owned, went to the Nitto and wont look back. The bfg's are great but the Nitto TG's are better. IMO
    My TG's have dry rot cracks in them, but most of my tires have done that before also. I think it has alot to do with the climate you live in.

    Hmm...Could be. Being as its dry and hot as hell out here, you would think if it was gonna happen, this would be the place. :)

    Well considering it snows here about 7 months a year I know that the BFG KO's perform very well in the snow and all other wintery conditions. I have about 53000 on mine and they still have another 10-15k left on them i would guess. as far as off-road.......... well, i don't rock crawl or anything with my taco but I try to take it places it shouldn't go while out hunting (only been towed once) and they perform decient.

    To the op for a cheaper tire that I find preformed well on my 02 prerunner that I gave hell to, I used Definity Dakota A/T I loved them. Never went rock crawling, or traveled in snow with them but the held up fine for everyday driving and some hunting trips. They also only go up to 31" tall. Oh and Pepboys carries them. Note: I despise Pepboys but liked this tire.

    I have looked at those and are keeping them in the back of my mind.
