I need to get new tires for my rig and am trying to decide between A/T's and M/T's. Currently I'm I have Big O brand Bigfoot X/T's on which came with my rig when I got it. I've had no problem with them however I haven't really gone out there and tested them wheeling, and they came pretty used up (hence the need for new tires). I'm going to be doing about 70/30 on road to off road. I wouldn't mind slapping on another set of Bigfoots, but I'm also considering the BFG All-Terrain A/T KO's. I just want to be sure they're solid enough if I end up getting in the muck. Your thoughts?
You can get a pair of TSL swampers for about $177 a tire for a 33x12.50,They are not bad on the road and are the sh*t off road!!! I have a set on mine and i'am prob 60/40,they will out preform all your buddys with MT tires like you have lockers!!Good tire and price!!!

I used to have 31's BFG AT. They were fine on road but again depending on what you will do. I went from the BFG AT 31's to Maxxis Bigihorns 32's and know I run 33's TrXus radial MT and I think I will never look back. First of all, IMHO I think its a cool looking tire that is quiet on and off road.
What size you looking to get?

The BFGs are very nice on-road, and they handle snow like it is no one else's business. We get a lot of snow in Vermont, so I have first hand experience...but I'm guessing that you don't get a lot of snow + ice where you live.
The BFGs are going to give you around 50-60K miles. They do alright in anything except mud. The tread is not deep enough OR open enough for them to self-clean and they will gum up very quickly. If you drive a lot of mudding or wheel in areas that get a lot of rain I would look for a different tire. They are great for what they are designed for. The question you should ask is are they the tire made for what you will be wheeling in.

I would go with the BFG MT's. thats what Im probably gonna get when I have money for new tires. Deeper and wider tread pattern.
Right now I have the AT's and there great but I want something that self cleans a little better, and more aggressive
My Jeep came with the Goodyear Wrangler MTR's and i took it off-road for the first time Monday(just got the Jeep thursday) and theyperformed great! they are a little loud on the road but nothing to worry about. They cleaned out well and was a night and day difference between these and BFG All-Terrain A/T's that were on my truck.
