    They are commonly referred to rugged fails. I don't run them nor have I ever. Some people like them and others don't. It is kinda hit or miss it seems.

    Why?

    I have them. They seem pretty good so far. Love them in the rain. No noise, and not too aggressive. Ride feels solid.

    Covered many times over. Reviews and picture out there of the terrains.

    Just covered this earlier this week.

    They are a highway tread classed tire meant to look tough, gets good reviews for what they are designed for.

    They are not replacing the rugged trails which are a all terrain tire.

    I get a lot of mixed reviews on them from our customers. I know they are good tires though. What most people don't know is that Michelin does testing for bfg,so they have to be a good tire. I guess for me, I'm not sold on the tred pattern is all. But I've never had a set of them myself so I can't really judge too much.

    How do they explain the Rugged Trail?

    I just bought KM2's in a 255 for my truck. The tire guy wanted me to take a look at the Rugged Terrains as well. He actually showed them to me mounted on another Tacoma. He explained that these are a highway tire and that they would do "OK" on a fire road. Decent looking tire for a highway tire though.

    Just thinking ahead on what tires I'll replace my rugged trails with. Do mostly highway driving. My brother inlaw just got a set on his f150. Just wanted to know how good they are. I think he was pressured in to buying them.

    BFG doesn't actually manufacture any tires, they are all made by Michelin.

    Michelin actually makes BFG's and Uniroyal tires also. These are their 3 grades. Cheap, midgrade, and their best.

    Most people would say that they are quiet for highway but when they did offroad it didn't perform so well..some said they aren't aggressive enough.so basically some people weren't as sold as others..everyone has different needs and therefore it really just come down to preference.
