I have run BFG AT and Goodyear MTR on prev Jeeps.

And all seasons on a couple.

Like at least an AT even when heading out on a farm.
My current beater has moderate ATs and they did OK fetching deer last couple yrs.

But then I also drove to the deer, in the woods, w no trail.

It's a beater, don't care. New jeep isnt gonna brush up along the locust trees and climb over logs LOL.

Field edges yeah.

One of my trucks .. either the '08 Frontier or '14 Taco .. came with the BFG rugged trail as the OEM tire. I was horribly unimpressed. I trashed two of them (and only had one spare) when I hit something on a back highway. Punched through the center of the tread in both cases. Before that, I had tried driving in wet, settled spring snow. Even in 4 Low with the rear axle locked the truck was helpless.

I was in a bind, truck on blocks up in the mountains 2 hours from town, so I had to just buy what was available to get the "f"er home and be able to go to work Monday. I got Toyo open country MTs. I'm on my 5th set between the 2 trucks. I've poked 2 holes (nails/screws) through the tread but they held air to get back to town. With both trucks I could tool along in 2WD high range in places I could not go in 4 Low locked with the rugged trail BFGs.

So ... I'm NOT recommending those BFG rugged trails. Hopefully the other option, which I'm not familiar with, is not worse.


Anyone who thinks there's two sides to everything hasn't met a M�bius strip.

I have used BF's and Goodyears on my 1/2 and 3/4 ton GM trucks for the last 30 plus years. Switched to Falkens about 8 years ago and it is no contest right now. They are my choice until something better comes along.

Current set (Wildpeak) has 46K on them and will probably replace them before next fall's hunting seasons in August. After the summer, should be close to 55K on them.

I have Falkens on my 09 Tacoma and now the Chevy 2500. I like them, quiet on road , decent snow tire , good off road as long as its not mud. At this point if i needed a set of 4wd tires id buy them again

Another Tacoma / Falken AT WP3 (Thailand) user. Got them last July, and they went through a Montana winter nicely. Good on slick-muddy roads, really quiet on the highway. We'll see how well the hold up, but so far so good.

I just put a set of Michelin LTX AT/2 on my 2020 F250 this morning. Not much experience with them yet, but I've always had good luck with Michelins.

I was planning on putting those on this year, but the reviews I read said they weren't good on wet roads. I had enough of that with the OEM Firestone Transforce HTs that came on it. I would be interested to hear how the LTXs work for you.

I'll report back after I've driven them a while in different conditions. I know the review(s) you refer too. Like anything, there's always reviews for and against. I saw that one person really blasted the wet road performance, but I didn't see many more reviews that expressed the same issue, so I kind of weeded that review out. I'll let you know what my experience is.
