    that comes from the factory?At low speeds I can feel every piece of tread in the tire (like a real mud tire), and honestly, from day one of a brand new truck, they feel like they are out of balance and look like they are worn about half way out already.

    Am I the only one who thinks these tires suck?

    I don't go off road at all. I might be trading these out for some Michelins LTX's pretty quick.

    In the early 1970's I worked at a BF Goodrich factory store busting tires. I think about every BFG Radial T/A I mounted in those days was out of round. It was so bad we would mount the rim, find the high and low spots using a dial indicator and then mount the tire and check the run out again. We would try to match the high spot on the tire with the low spot on the rim. Finally we sent problem tires across town to a retreader to have them trued. If we didn't we could not balance the Radial T/A's with out over 8 oz weight which is way to much. After that I have never bought BF Goodrich tires. Others have had better luck though with them.

    Dunlops X to the Nth power! Actually, my main complaint with the dunlops was the fact they wore down to the replacement indicators at 13K miles! At least the rugged fails last longer...

    Yeah, they suck... 13,000 miles on mine and I'm almost worn down to the wear bar already. They're absolutely horrible in the snow as well...

    I have these on my truck because they came with it. Pathfinder a/p. They are pretty bad in any kind of mud, snow, rain. It is VERY easy to break them loose on wet streets.
