    I haven't tried them, but a friend has them on his 4Runner and swears by them... LONG mileage tires! I will consider them when the Rugged Trails wear out...

    As for BFG All Terrains... sorry, but far too many people have had sidewall cuts and blowouts for a tire that sells itself on having 3 ply sidewalls... It is the most popular tire for desert and Baja travelers... and many love them.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    No pics, but...
    I have had Michelin LTX AT's and AT2's.
    Smooth, quiet, LONG WEARING, and excellent traction.
    I'd comment on lack of punctures/blowouts, but don't want to jinx myself.
    Smart tire.

    Just got them installed today. I got it in stock size P265/70R16 but it looks bigger than stock BFGs for some reason.. maybe just because it's not too dirty yet. Here are some pics:

    Great design: has sipping for the snow yet leaves large enough channels for mud

    These are way more aggressive looking in person than pics on Michelin site

    I have them and they have really been good all around tires. I have about 65k miles on them right now, Primarily highway driving but have been down some dirt roads and they did well. They are noisier than the stock Dunlop tire or the other onroad michelins available.

    I've got the Michelin AT-2 on mine and I really like them. Smooth ride. They sing just a little but it's compltetely liveable.

    They are both great tires and the wear and ride quality are pretty close so far. My wife has the Michelin LTX AT's on her Sequoia and I have the BFG A/T's on my Taco. FWIW, the BFG A/T's have a more aggressive look if that matters to you.

    At about 12,500 miles, traded in my OEM BFGs and put on Michelin LTX AT2s on my truck and I really like them.

    With almost 4,000 miles on the tires, they do well in all conditions. I would highly recommend them.

    I had the LTX M/S on my first gen taco they did great (63k on them when I traded, and still more than half the tread) So thats what I was looking for when I went to get new tires for my 08. I got talked into the AT2's. and so far I'm glad I did. They worked out great in the snow and not much road noise. Had them on for 9 months and 10k miles, still look new.

    I cant help with the BFG's (Never had any)

    Heres some pics when they were new

    I have 2 customers with LTXs with over 100K miles on them and still going strong. For a highway tire, they def get my vote. But the BFGs look more aggressive

    BFG's don't last neeeeeear as long althought they look tight, I'd like someone to say they have had BF's for over 70k like Michies and still have tread

    Got less than 50K on the BFG AT KO before I replaced them with the LTX AT2. Got over 11K on them now and am please so far. They got a little use in several snow storms in may (5 inches on the road each storm). The jury is still out, though, on the deeper snow. They'll get tested in that this winter. LTX AT2 are far quieter on the road than the BFG. For the mild/moderate off-roading I do, haven't noticed a bit of difference in traction between the two. Only downside is that they have so many more channels in them that they grab a ton more small rocks/gravel than the BFG (and people complain about those being bad!). From a distance, they appear to look like a normal highway tire.

    It isn't until you get closer and look at the tread pattern that you realize how aggressive the pattern really is. But I agree with the above statement, if you want an off-road looking tire, these aren't for you.
