I have seen them work on moderate level trails and in the mud.

Joshua Tree - Berdoo Canyon Road


That's me motivating the Jeep that was high-centered.



On steep sections of trail like this, the Jeep didn't slide - traction was very good.


No rock punctures, either.


Mud test - The driver had a running start, but he didn't get stuck, either.





Tires were packed in with mud...


But, so were these! [Goodyear MT/R]


...And, these! [Interco TrXus MT]


Just photos of real life Jeeping and tires really working.

The BFG AT/KO wasn't engineered for 'rocky' trails. I have taking mine down 'rocky' trails, but these were what I would consider to be 'moderate' trails.

Hey vista, I'm right up the road from you in Wellington.

I've had two sets of BFG all terrains over the years and will never buy another set. One set would not stay balanced as they wore and the other had very weak sidewalls that led to a blowout that never should have happened.

Good all terrain traction, but poor construction.

Look at the Toyo AT2s. Toyos are very high quality tires. I have run three sets between my Dodge Cummins and my JK. Never a problem.

It's your call on steel vs aluminum. Heavy and cheap, or light and expensive. It seems the load ratings are about the same or even better for aluminum in some models. I've bent steel wheels on the trail and I've dinged pretty aluminum wheels on the trail. I recently went with aluminum for my new ones, but the simple utility of steel is appealing. Sheesh.
