    BFgoodrich for sure..They last the longest and they are the strongest.
    Nittos wear down WAY TO FAST. An prob. even cost more.. so

    I used to run BFG exclusively. UNTIL I tried the Nitto TG's. In AZ, I have found the Nittos to grip every surface much better than the BFG's did. Even underwater, the Nittos seemed to grip the slickest rocks. ANd they shed mud much better than the BFG's. The BFG's are a stronger tire, with a 3 ply sidewall as opposed to Nittos 2 ply, but this gives the Nittos a better ride on the street. On Average, the Nittos are a few bucks cheaper than the BFG's.
    All this aside, you really cant go wrong with EITHER tire! :)

    I'm running Nitto TG! They are awesome, almost half the price of BFGs. I paid $460 OTD for 265/75/16s.

    I'm running 5100s set to 2.5" in the front and a 2" AAL in the rear. I have seen plenty of people run them a stock suspension. Its the biggest tire you can run without a lift.

    I run BFG and like them.
    They are a little rough at times, but overall a very good tire.

    If you can afford them, don't hesitate. They should last a very long time!

    I am running BFGoodrich on my Tacoma. They run great on and off payment. I got them because of how aggressive the threads are.

    I just got Nitto's for $120 a tire vs. BFG's at $200 a tire. I've only had them on a few weeks, so I can't comment on wear, but road noise is minimal I actually noticed less noise than the Dunlops and the traction is much better. I'm pleased, will see how they hold up, BFG was my original choice.

    Got to test my Nitto's in rain for the 1st time yesterday :D and I am more than pleased. The traction is awesome, I tried to get them to slip and slide a little just to see how they would do and they held on tight.

    Yes I've had this set that I'm currently running for 11,000 miles and they still look new! They seem to shed water and snow pretty good, and they are quiet. I haven't done any serious wheeling with them though. But they seem to be a pretty good all around tire!

    I have to tell you i'm a huge raised white lettered tire fan, so BFG's have always been my choice on several trucks, but my truck now has Mastercraft courser M/T's they have over half tread on them and were on the truck when i got it, so I havent got rid of them yet. These tires have really bad road noise has anyone else had this problem? Are these tires that noisey?
