Don't go bfg. We had to completely quit buying those on our fleet pickups.

Cooper and Hankook are making the best pickup tire right now.

I'm running nitto trail grapplers now but gonna switch to nitto ridge grapplers. They are a very aggressive a/t.

Will never buy anymore Nitto's. Unless the tire compound has changed which they may have done, they will not last long. Right now I am running Goodyear Duratracs on my 2014 F150 and so far so good.

I have had excellent luck out of all my nittos. Got 43,000 on my trail grapplers now on a 3/4 ton and can get another 10,000 out of them. What were you running and on what vehicle?

My Hankooks go 70K miles every set. I could probably still get another 10K out of them but I wouldn't want to risk it.

Have close to 60k on my Terras now with ~10k left. Have been running Nitto Terras on every truck Iíve had for last 10+ years with same great results. Eyeing the Ridge Grapplers next for my Silverado 1500 for more aggressive look, but with all the AT Tire threads lately Iím definitely researching all brands.

I’ve got about 60% left after 30k on my heavy half. General grabber AT2, the only soil they haven’t done good in is the black gumbo we have here on the coast, even at that I was sunk to the rear diff and I was able to slowly crawl out. Good tires for the money imo, I think they where about $200 a tire

Toyo OpenCountry AT2 extreme are the new staple of what an AT tire should be. If you want a true AT tire.

Hybrids are the new thing. Toyo RT and Nitto Ridge Grappler lead the pack it seems

BFG ko2!!!
Got them at 25k and I'm at 80k.
I think I will get another 10 to 20k out of them. Have them rotated every oil change is only I can think of that has made them last and still have more to go.

I've got Hancook Dynapro ATM's on my Tacoma and they are great off road, but they are a little loud on the highway. I don't really notice it anymore, but my wife always comments on it when she rides with me. I've got about 35K miles on them they're holding up great. I'm sure I'll get at least 20K more out them.

I was going to the get the KO2's when I got tires a couple of years ago, but it was almost $300 more for the 4 tires.

My dad has the Cooper Discoverer ATP's on his Tundra and they're great as well.

We had a lease last year in Crowell that basically turned into red soup when it rained more than 1/4". We were both able to get around way better than I thought we would.

I run the nitto terra grapplers On my halfton and just about time for its first rotation and so far they’re great! I wanted the bfgs but they don’t warranty them anymore. I’ve had two different sets of coopers and they sucked. Didn’t last long. The nittos have a 50000 mile warranty and also work great on wet roads and mud and sand. Worth looking at. Mine are also the 10 ply tires

This for me. I have ran them 20 years until 5 months ago. I got at least 70k on every set of BFGs. I went with Nitto Grapplers and I am not happy with them. My only complaint is ride, I think KOs ride much better.

Just bought my 8 set of these, great tires.

I put 63,000 miles on my last set.

No issues whatsoever and still had 3,000 worth of tread to go.

Needed the write off this year so decided to replace now.
