    I have the toyo MT, so my count goes to it. The toyo are made of a harder compound and will last longer.

    The BFG AT is also a very good tire, and has a nice tread rating of somewhere around 50k. ;)

    Your looking for "all-terrain" tires but the first 2 options are mud tires?

    Though aggressive looking, I can't see them last too long if you are mostly on the road. If you do mud on occasion, then I understand those being considered.

    I have heard great things about the BFG A/T but can't speak to any of those on personal experience - which is mostly what you are going to get (ie..."I have XXX and they are the best"). You might be better off posting what terrain you drive and what you want to use the tires for (rocks, snow, mud, hardpack, street, etc).

    i have a pair of 33 bfg A/T's they weren't too pricy compared to the mud terrains, which i wanted, because i liked the aggressive look but couldn't afford them. Ive actually been really happy with the BFG's. Usually i drive pretty fast on pavement and off pavement, which im not sure how that would be with mud terrains. I do many different types of off roading, mud, dirt, snow, hill climbs (with 4x4) and my BFG's have never failed me yet, i've been up to 100 off roading, (took about a mile stretch) but i got it! but i can't forsee that taking place with mud terrains, theres too much friction and that 90-100 part is what takes the longest. If you do drive fast in general, pavement or not, the mud terrains will wear faster, but they do have more tread, it really depends on what you're looking to do with the tire. I'm a young adult so i tend to drive fast everywhere which equals faster tire wear regardless of the tire.

    If you want an AT check out the Nitto Terra Grapplers. They are much more affordable than the KM2's which are a MT and they are also a 10 ply tire. I have them and they look mean as snot and aren't much louder than the stock BFG AT's.

    A friend of mine that is a manager at Discount Tire told me that the Nitto Terra Grapplers are the best offroad tire for driving on the pavement. So if you do a little off roading and a lot of daily driving, it is a good choice. Mud terrains look better on the truck, in my opinion.

    Does anyone know what kind of wheel that is in the BFG picture above? I'm not sure if I like it or not, and would like to see a different picture.

    If price is a concern of yours, check out the General Grabber AT2's. Similiar to the BFG's AT for a lot less money. The warranty on them is good for 60K too. A guy I work with has them on his f-250 and raves about them. I'll probably get a set to replace my BFG "not so" Rugged Trails.

    All mud terrains drive worse than any all terrain or street tire will on the road. To the comment that Nitto Grapplers are shit, is the first I have heard it. But I guess if OakleyTRD says so....

    6" Fabtech Stage II, 17x9" Centerline Eclipse rims, with 12.5x35x17" BFG KM2's. On board air system,Toyota skid plate, spidertrax wheel spacers, TRD CAI w/AFE ProDry filter (21-90045),Flowmaster Dual exhaust, GrillCraft grill w/custom emblem, Custom Shifter, BushWacker fender flares, Hood struts, Underhood lights, TW driveshaft, Wet Okole seat covers, Dashlight mod, Many other little things to make the truck complete!
    My vote would be for the KM2's. I have been very impressed with these tires. I had a set of BFG A/T before these. The KM2's are much better all around IMHO.
    I haven't found any weak areas with these tires yet.

    The ATZ are sweet looking tires also. That might be my next set? But I'm thinking these KM2's will last a very long time, so I don't think I'll be buying tires in the near future.:pray:
