    I'm finally getting new tires on the truck (Stock, 06' regular cab, 4 cyl, 4WD) and was looking, at BFG AT's and Firestone Destinations AT's. Big $$$ difference with the BFG's coming out @ $200 more in the end. Are the BFG's worth it and the real question is.....

    Will 265/75-16 tires fit without rubbing (no hard wheeling but occasional offroad and lots of snow). Anyone running this size and how does the 4cyl handle it? Any other good AT tires out there that anyone can recommend in the same price range or less.

    I know the question has been asked before, but I wanted one last opportunity to get any new opinions or advice before it's too late.

    Thanks, Rob

    ^what he said

    My brother just bought BFG, and he was askin me the same question; BFG vs Firestone on a Ford Ranger. You gotta remember the price you see on the tire isn't set in stone, you can deal with the tireshop, and all I gotta say is BFG sponsors the baja 1000 and some race teams actually race on the A/T KO. The new Ford SVT raptor runs that very tire and raced the 1000, I've never heard of firestone when it comes to off road racing, maybe I'm wrong, but the fact remains BFG's history precedes them when it comes to racing and like they say, racing improves the breed. Not to mention it looks x1000 better than the firestone. When I hear firestone I think of ford explorers rolling ....

    Another option thats good and cheap. Nitto Terra Grapper-about 140 per tire
    Hankook dynapro atm rf10-170 per tire
    Toyo open country AT-140-150
    Good luck

    Yeah, I'm leaning towards the BFG's. I've had them on wranglers and Cherokee's and have been very happy. They just seem to have gotten expensive since my last purchase. A salesman at a local tire shop said that BFG was discontinuing their AT. I couldn't and still don't believe they would drop one of their best tires of all time. I guess it's gonna be the 265/75 BFG's. Thanks for the info.
