    Thinking of putting 265/75/16 BFG AT's on my stock '07 TRD.

    This a good choice? I want the aggressive look but i have a 70 mile round trip commute.

    Also..Anyone have a pic of BFG AT's on a 2nd gen?

    Thanks

    I got them and there okay, kinda wish I went with a little more aggressive look tho.

    They are not a loud tire and the ride is good.

    I think they ride great. Not loud at all. But like Blackshirts said, they don't look as aggressive.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I was thinking the Terra grapplers would be too aggressive for my commute but they don't appear to be any more rough than the BFG's. I live the aggressive look. If I had my wish it would be Dura Tracs but I dont think they're practical enough.

    Is the Nitto something realistic for the 70 miles a day?

    I run Duratracs 62 miles a day to and from work. Maybe too aggressive but they look great and so far they are pretty good offroad.

    I will probably get the BFGs next time though.

    How many miles on those Whip? Some of the more worn out ones I've seen start to look really bad with a flat tread but still aggressive sidewall. They almost looks like slicks in peoples pics..

    Those were pics of when I got them. They have about 1000 miles on them now and they look the same.

    Thanks guys..

    I checked out those Hankook tires before. They look great. Thanks Whip..Those Duratracs look sweet too. Are they loud(Hankooks too)? And what makes you want to go with BFG's next time?

    One thing I forgot to mention is that although I love (not 'live'..mistype up there above) the aggressive look I won't be off-roading much. I want them fir looks and the occasional snow storm or sticky situation. I do want them to be capable tires though.

    My BFG's had 80K on them when I sold my first gen. I highly recommend if you want a tire that is going to last a long time. I never had any issues.

    My next tire will probably be the Duratrac's, but I only put 12,000 miles on my truck over the last 4 years (3k a year), so longevity isn't an issue for me now.

    I highly recommend the BFG's I have had them on all my trucks and they perform well in snow and dirt, giving lots of grip, they wear well and you can run them forever. you pay for what you get for sure.
