    I'm looking into getting some BF Goodrich A/T LT265/75R16/E tires and see 2 different ones listed on their web-site. It looks like the only difference is in the speed, sidewall and tread depth rateings. Could anyone tell me what the difference is between the sidewall rateing "RWL" and "BSW"? Which one do you guys recommend?

    I had those tires on my 98.. They lasted forever. I had 60k on them when I sold the truck (they still had plenty of life in them). The winter traction was unbelievable. They are an expensive tire, but worth every penny in my opinion.

    Thanks for the responses guys. They are a great tire...went through 4 sets on my old 1988 4Runner. If I remember correctly each set lasted around 70,000 miles and never had a problem.
