    mines going to be a daily driven truck so i think the nitto should last longer then the bfg mt. i do love the lock of the bfg though. but nitto isnt bad either.

    either the nittos or bfg's. the goodyears are the old style a/t's i think(not the silent armors) and if so, they really dont last that long, and they start to cup pretty bad.

    this is my first day on nitto's...i liked it!!! i might be biased but i can compare it to my oem tires after driving it for 4000 miles...i was surprised that it's quiet and almost the same handling but i can feel it's heavier....just my opinion :)

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    BFG's. i have em and have been really impressed so far. they're actually smoother and quieter than the Cooper ST's that i had on before but they dont handle quite as well. im quite a 'spirited' driver though
