    So did a little off roading this weekend, no pics cuz I couldnt find my camera :mad:, but I got my alignment and tires rotated and balanced two weeks ago and it has had a bad shake between 40-60. So I took it back in today and they said I need a new tire. Apparently while off roading, I cut the tire down to the wire through the threads. I have 285/70/17 BFG All Terrains, I am overall not impressed with this tire. I only have about 20k on the tire and they already seemed to be wearing pretty bad. So I am pretty happy I had the warranty and road hazzard crap, so I had them put two new ones on and it cost me $338. So needless to say I was a little unhappy. Sorry guys had to vent. Anyone else have the BFG All Terrainsand have any problems?

    That sucks. You should have just coughed up another $300 or so bucks and got a whole new set of tires. Maybe a more aggressive thread? Anyways, what was the warranty and road hazzard crap good for then??

    Well one tire was covered under it, I just didnt want to be rolling with 1 brand new tire. And I contemplated buying all new ones but I am going to be changing lifts (hopefully soon) and will be wanting a bigger tire. I can barely run the 285's with all the rubbing. It was a toss up though.

    Are you rotating them every 5,000 miles or so? I got 85,000 miles out of a set.

    Ya, pretty much everytime I get an oil change, I get them rotated. I usualy get it done 5-7k. This last time was the longest i've went with like 8k. But I have done a lot of road trips.
