    Just a question. Mine seem to be wearing pretty fast. Im going to be changing them out to BFG A/T's in the next few weeks, and i am worried about spending all that money and having them wear just as fast.

    Thanks

    My Rugged Fails lasted for 34K miles. They sucked.

    I've got about 3K miles on my BFG A/Ts and they still look brand new. I love them.

    I currently have 45k miles and they are very worn out. I drive 75% LA freeway and 25% off-road (Dirt,Mud,Snow). I am shopping for new tires now.

    Maybe BFG M/T or Procomp M/T

    I had 12K on mine when I switched to 285's.

    For 12K miles I was pretty unhappy with the performance of the Rugged Trails. They sucked!

    Now, when I switched to BFG AT's, I didn't much care for them either. I thought they wore pretty quick as well....

    The 31x10.5x15 BFG AT's I had on my Nissan lasted forever. On the Tacoma, they wore much quicker???

    I've been happy with my Cooper STT's so far. Good wear for a mud tire.

    But back on topic, those Rugged Trails are a joke.

    Count me in as one that hates them as well. I'm planning to switch to either BF A/t or BF M/T's in the future, can't wait to be rid of these pieces of crap.

    I have 13K on them and I'm going crazy... You can hear me go round corners a mile away unless I'm at Grandma pace. I'm trying to make them last as long as they can to save the money up for BFG AT's

    I went through mine in about 20K

    Pretty bald when I was through with them.


    Now I'm running Toyo M/Ts and they are fantastic.

    When its time for you to get tires, I know the manager of a discount here in the east valley. Always hooks me up.
