Both are good. I'm a BFG fan but not so much the mud terrain, preferring the all terrain. Same price?

I bought the jeep two weeks ago it came with the bfg's on it, I have a 79 Chevy that has the coopers on it they have maybe 500 miles on them. There is about a 1/2" difference in tread depth. Just wondering if it's worth the trouble to switch them. Going to sell the Chevy.

Price was about the same when I googled them.

If your selling the Chevy and the tires are newer / fresher then I'd either

switch and sell, or sell and buy the exact tire that I wanted new for the Jeep. It just depends.

I never got any decent wear out of Cooper's but BFG's wear like iron. I have TAKO's on my Jeep and really wish I'd have went for the KM2...

If they are the same size, definitely swap the new tires on!

I'm with NC_Bear, my Coopers never wore well either. I'd keep the BFGs but that's just me.
