    bfgs are a good tire ive run them many times..but the duratracs perform better in all situationss...as do the nitto terra grapplers outperform the bfg's....if you want a aggressive at get the duratracs and if you want a great all around capable on and offroad tire look at the nitto

    BFG A/T's have been around longer, more well known, might be a little bit more money depending on where you go. I think the DuraTracs look a little bit more aggressive.

    I imagine MPG's will be about the same - not enough of a difference to worry about it either way.

    If you go with the DuraTracs, I would recommend signing up with Tread Lightly! (www.treadlightly.org), you pay $25 for a one-year membership and you're able to utilize their $100 manufacturer rebate on Goodyear tires. Net gain of $75. That is what I will be doing when I go with the DuraTracs, except I'm already a member. :D
