    roughly how long are everyone's BFG A/T's lasting? 40k? Tried to find some info online...but it looks like the BFG has NO mileage warranty?

    All Factory for now, LOVE it that way
    I changed mine to Michleins ltx m/s2 265/70/16 at 40,057 miles, and still had about 5000 miles of tread left, the tire place said.
    i wasnt at the wear bar yet but close

    A friend of mine's dad had BFG AT's on an F-150 of his for almost 90,000 miles. They were pretty bare at that point, but that is still a long time

    Skid plate. Roof rack. F**ked up grille.
    I had a Gen 1 with BFG ATs from 80,000 to 160,000 = 80,000 and still had good tread on them.
    Picked up a Gen 2 back in 07. It had Rugged Fails on it. They lasted 35,000. Went over to the ATs. I did see a drop in mpgs and overall handling though. The Rugged Fails might be the worst tire I have ever driven in the snow.

    bottom line. Ats = Truck tire. Rugged Trails = passenger vehicle tire. At least that is what I have read/learned.

    They're a pretty tough tire. Unless you don't keep up on your rotations or alignments, they seem to dry up and fall off before wearing out.

    BFG AT KO on mine had around 50K miles when I replaced them. The fronts were almost to the wear indicators and the rears had around 3/32nds left on them. Got a nail in the front one and was tired of dealing with the slipping and sliding in the snow, so just replaced them rather than paying to fix the flat.

    If you live in snow country, they'll be good in snow for the first 45K miles and then you get down to the harder rubber at which point they act like any other tire in the snow (ABS will again kick in when stopping after that point). I'm guessing on dry pavement they would have lasted another 20K or so if you don't hit any screws or nails on the road. With snow and tread depth, timing is everything.

    thanks for the response! any more thoughts on these? im thinking of buying them...the past two Town Fair Tire Stores in my area have tried to talk me out of them. I am assuming that it was because they would have to order them...and them would rather sell me something from their floor (something they have in stock) ???

    Iam on my third set. solid all around tire. quiet on the highway. good in snow, til they're bare bones. If you arent superhardcoreoffroading like Every day...... they are one of the best tires out there. The only other one I am really considering for next time is the goodyear duratrec. those tires are badass, more aggressive, and have had a year to be tested out by everyone already, and they have held up very well from what I hear. good in snow too.
    but the BFG ATs are my current and future choice other then that. I wouldnt hesitate to order them.
