    BF Goody M/T's or A/T's?

    I do a lot of highway driving, but i/m looking for something better and more agressive than the stock tires?

    I'm assuming the A/T's get better MPG's and are quieter, but the M/T's just look Bad ASS!


    Thoughts...likes...dislikes?

    Since you primarily drive Freeway I vote A/T...They'll wear better and there a lil less expensive. But they'll still perform great off road :)

    Check out my build thread.
    I would vote A/T's also since highway. I had BFG A/T's they do very well offroad, and are quite aggressive looking, just not nearly as much so as the M/T's. I have firestone M/T's now.

    DON'T DO IT!!! Get the M/T's. I figure they're tires and I'm gonna run em till it's time to change em anyways. The M/T's look SO much better and who cares about road noise anyways, that's why I have a sound system. MPG, IDK about you dude but I don't really give a shit about it. I don't drive a truck because it's eco-friendly. Get the KM2's and you won't regret it...

    I get 15 MPG with my 33" Km2s driving half highway and half city. I absolutely lovem. Ive had them since September and, to be honest, I regretted getting them the first month I had them but with the increased amount of offroading Im doing now, I have no regrets. The tires are loud (as many muds are) and I dont know how much worse they do than an A/T but the bad mileage of a tire also is dependent on its size, so keep that in mind.

    If you dont offroad much I say go with the A/T if you do hit the dirt, then get the M/T. My tires amaze me everytime I hit the trails.

    Time will tell.
    I was told by a goodyear rep that these tires were designed as a Work Truck tire. So they had to be able to handle rain, mud and snow, as well as the highway. I have been totally impressed on how well they have performed. Just go look at a set and see for yourself. Right now im tearing up the snow here in buffalo.

    Yep, I want them as my next set depending on how long they last, if not I'll stick to BFG at's.
