33x10.5x15

Are the BFG AT T/A KOs the only tire in this size for ATs? I want an AT tire in this size but I have read that the BFGs are not great in the rain & that is a problem for me. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Duratracs are available in that size, and from my experience with BFGs the Duratracs are MUCH better.

I had 3 sets of BFGS and switched to Duratracs about 4 months ago. As good as the BFgs were the Duratracs are that much better.....and since it is an AT I can get a "road hazard" warranty....I used it on the BFGs. Also includes lifetime balance and rotation for $20 a tire.

I do want duratracks but I have never found them in 33x10.5x15, only 33x12.5x15. I would prefer 10.5" wide since I will be on the road & not in much or sand that I foresee.

Well I may be wrong (haven't actually seen them) but local dealer said he could get them for me...asked if I wanted 10.5 or 12.5...I got the 12.5

Well there are 31x10.5x15 Duratracks. No sign of the 33x10.5 still.

It appears I was told incorrectly...I like my 12.50s though

I have 33x10.50s BFG ATs on my rig, and they are a nice tire. The size seems more proportional than 12.50s too. They seem like the perfect all around tire. They grip off-road, and grip on the street well too. Most likely will last longer than Duratracs, but I can't say for sure, as I haven't seen any reviews about long term use with the duratracs.

I think the 33x10.50 size would be better for a DD. We need to all start emailing companies and push them to make this size. I've already told Goodyear that they should offer this size. There need to be more options.

I run the 33x10.50 BFG MTs.
I'm about halfway through this set of MTs.
Since my LJ is mostly a DD, offroad only a few times per year, my next set
of 33x10.50s will be the BFG ATs
They should run smother, quieter, and have less rolling resistance, yet have improved snow/slush traction over the MT.

I ran BFGs ATs for several years/ multiple sets. I switched to the Duratracs after the way people on here talked about them. It is early to tell how long they will last (only had them since OCT) but as good as my BFGs were the Duratracs are way better for my use.

Longevity is my concern now. My Bfgs lasted 50K+ miles generally.

I like the fact that when I buy either tire local, I can get a road hazard and rotation warranty. SO if I gouge a sidewall on a stick....I will claim the road hazard....can't do that with mud terrains.

I'd consider duratracs, but they are not offered in the size I want... 33x10.50-15.

Although I don't get to go offroad often, when I do go the trails are pretty rugged. I've cut some BFGs sidewalls in the places we go. From what I've read about sidewall strength, I'd probably avoid duratracs even if they were available in the size I want.

I understand what you are saying have heard the rumors, and know the sidewall isn't as strong......so far so good for me...but I also have "Road Hazard warranty"....The tire shop said they won't sell that for Mud terrains but will for ATs......Even though they know people take ATs off road.

I recently got a set of Bfg 33x10.5x15 ATs & I am very pleased so far.Drove in a pretty good rain the other day & they gripped well.I have run them in everything except deep mud (doggone drought!) and no problems with traction at all.These tires are so quiet & ride so much better than my old MTs its like driving a brand new 2001 Wrangler!
