    My 2012 TRD Off Road 4x4 came with B.F. Goodrich 'Rugged Trail T/A' tires. I was told that about 30K miles is all they will deliver because of a soft tread [for traction?].
    What has been your experience?

    At 20K I HAD to replace mine because of the down right dangerous wet traction. Still had plenty of tread, but It got scary driving in the wet.

    That sounds like the tires that came on my 2000 Nissan Frontier....if it even LOOKED WET on the pavement it was scary slick.....Dangerous tires! I believe they were 'GENERAL' brand. I have driven a LOT working in service trucks for 37 years and those tires should not have been ever put on ANY vehicle!

    Yeah do yourself a favor and lose the Rugged Fails ASAP. Just about any AT tire is far superior to these. You'll feel like you're driving a different truck!

    No issues with mine on my 1st Gen driving in wet weather. I got about 70K miles out of my first set and have about 40K on the set on the truck now.

    I got rid of them at 27000 since they were bald and dangerous on wet roads.

    I got around 36k out of the stock Rugged Fails before I tossed em and replaced them and went with BGF's Rugged Terrain, it is supposed to have 30% better grip in the wet than the Rugged Fail.

    I took mine off at 22K miles and put them on our older 4Runner...manly because I wanted to go up to a 265/75 size tire. They still look great and have lots of tread left. I'm pretty adamant about rotating/balancing them as well. I'm sure they'll be good for at least 40K miles.
