    yeah. For example BFG KM2's have on average 20/32 of an inch of tread depth.

    Even the super swamper bogger only has a maximum of 29/32 of an inch of tread depth.

    Average All terrains will have around 16/32's.

    After doing a lot of research on AT tires, it seems the average tread depth is around 13-15/32, so a little less than 1/2 an inch.
