    After the weak sidewall blowing on a Brigstone Revo tire I had I wanted to see what the options for 3-ply sidewall tires and experiences with them. Don't know who makes 3-ply sidewall AT tires besides BFG. I think for most people AT is a compromise for those that drive mostly pavement but wish to have good traction in snow/fields/dirt roads etc.
    The BFG's are nice on the road but I haven't heard real good comments about snow and I know they won't do mud too well. But more confident in surviving a rock puncture.
    Preliminary research for me before I get a Tacoma.

    3-ply sidewall
    1) BFG AT/KO
    2)
    3)

    Don't the E range (10 ply) Terra Grapplers have a 3 ply sidewall?

    I dont think the Nittos do. Mickey Thompson MTZ and ATZ tires are 3 ply side walls, and the Procomp Xtreme Radial MT does too.....But I think thats all.

    Nope.

    Correct. The only 3 ply sidwall BFG's are their off road tires, starting with the AT.

    I havent run it, but I might next go around :) Personally, I prefer a 2 ply tire as opposed to a 3 ply, as they flatten out better (imho) when aired down.

    well i have ply KM2 and they leave a footprint and hook up in the snow...thats for sure. as far as rock punctures.....went to azusa cayon here in socal and sliced the sidewall pretty dam good. daily drove it like that for 6 months until it starts leaking. relaced and patched that one for further abuse ....
