    Anyone here have anything to say about BF Goodrich's Rugged Terrain tires? I currently have the Rugged Trail tires that came stock which need to be replaced in the next few months.

    I have posted previously asking for tire recommendations and would like to here more. I will be running P265/70R16.

    I think the bfg all terrains are the best tire bfg makes. They last forever and are great in any terrain.

    what is your intended purpose for the truck? dd and weekend warrior? pavement pounder/mall crawler? where do you live, i.e. do you need winter traction? is wet weather performance a priority?

    no one tire is going to be good at everything. you need to prioritize your needs/wants and then go from there.

    I have a set only 5,000 on them so far. They float really bad on light mud dirt roads. Quite on the highway. Smooth ride. Drove to Iowa from Texas rain the whole way. Best stopping tire on a wet road I have ever had.

    not to bash on the bfg all terrains too much, but in my opinion they suck in the mud, and are only average to below average on icy and heavy snow terrain. they also have weak side walls relative to most mt tires, and are more of a jack of all trades/master of none type of tire. i had a set last 100K on the family hummer H2, which is really exceptional and not all that uncommon. they are great in sand, especially if you air down. they are relatively quiet on the highway. i was not too happy with their wet weather stickiness after the first 20K miles either.

    i've tried numerous other tires that i prefer over bfg at's for MY intended purposes, including dick cepek fc II's, mickey thompson baja atz's, nitto terra grapplers, and now hankook dynapro atm's. again, it's important to know what you expect a tire to do, and then choose accordingly.

    I bought a set of the rugged terrains about 2 or 3 weeks ago. They ride nice and quiet on the highway and handled extremely well in the rain. No off road time yet. My truck has the "sport upgrade" and for 18" tires they had the best price for what I wanted, a more aggressive look and reasonable performance for occasional off road use, while maintaining solid on road performance.

    Ill be doing mainly on-road driving. However, I do drive a decent amount on gravel and expect to be wet weather and winter driving. I am a hunter and need tires that can handle basic off roading, but nothing extreme.

    I know some people will run P265/75R16s, but I am afraid that would be more harmful than beneficial. Hope that helps.

    Also, do the All-terrains come in P265/70R16? BFG's website does not link them to my truck or show them in that size.

    Yes. That's the size I currently run, but will likely up-size to 265/75R16 when these are shot.
