    I am looking for a 275/65r/18 tire. My choices are the BFG AT's LT275 or General's Grabbers AT2, either LT275 or P275

    I am considering the Grabbers P275 because it should make for a more comfortable ride, and its cheaper, and it has a similar look to the BFG. I figure it should be ok for occasional light-moderate off-roading.

    But I know the LT tire is more rugged and tougher. I've had the BFG AT's on my old 03 Tacoma for most of the time I had it (7 years) and they never failed. I know my old Tacoma rode rough and my wife hated getting in it. She likes the ride of my 07 Tacoma I just got so I don't want to ruin the ride. But I half figure my old Tacoma was a rough ride anyway.

    You guys got any advice?

    Thanks

    You've identified the choice. P275 for best ride, LT275 for least chance of a cut sidewall.

    Do you air down your tires? That's kind of a watershed for me - if you air down, then you probably want to go with the more durable rubber.

    I have never aired down. Haven't had the need to really. I guess that says it all.

    I was just wondering if anyone regretted going with LT over P.
