    Hello all still very new here but I am on my way. So has anyone ever heard a tire tech say i can't put BFG AT's in the back while you have BFG rugged trails in the front because the tread pattern is too agessive and may damage your drive train or transmission. (BFG AT's too agressive) The story of why I have two Ruggerd trails is because I just need rear tires to get me through Hunting season so they are new But I still need new tires but not willing to throw out good tires and only need two. :confused:
    So please post up even if you say that guys is a .....

    wat?
    too agressive is retarded. the differences in rugged fails and the AT's are HUGE, but it wont mess anything up as long as they are all the same size....or you keep the pairs on front to back and dont do one of each on the same axle if they are different sizes

    Not much. Step bars, K&N air filter
    Is your truck a 4WD? Damage can occur to your transmission, etc. if you use 4WD. Your rear tires will grip better (off-road, snow conditions) than your front tires causing the wheel speeds to be different. If that was to occur and damage is caused to the transmission, the shop that installed the rear tires would be held responsible for the damage. Not that it WILL happen but as a tire guy for 10 yrs now I've seen it happen.

    Its 4wd . That makes sense about one gripping more than the other but whats the chance that the transmission will get damage

    What drugs is he smoking!! Total BS!!!

    He's just trying to spook you into buying 4 tires instead of 2.

    There's nothing wrong with running even 4 different brand/type tires on a vehicle as long as they're they're the same size.

    By what you describe - it won't damage the transmission. It'll damage the transer case.
