Nitto terra grapplers are in my opinion the best all terrain tire. They are quiet, grip pavement well, wet or dry. Air down extremely well. Sometimes clean better in mud than mud terrains, and do extremely well in rocks. Plus they look pretty good and are reasonably cheap compared to some. Ive ran them on several vehicles, and have ran them on my jeep, as well as several of my jeeper buddies.

Check out the new Falken Wildpeak. Great reviews from most 4-wheel mags.

Kumho hands down. Great prices and will out perform some of the more expensive brands. I just bought a set of sat road ventures and they are awesome.

I rum Silent Armors. Good in sand and we just got 12 inches of snow and I've not had any problems. In fact, I didn't even shovel my driveway. Just put it in D and push the skinny pedal.

I would NOT recommend this tire unless you're getting them for free. the Nitto's are hands down light years ahead of the BFG a/t's imo. I don't care about the races, awards, etc....from my experience these tires BLOW!

Hmmm... that's the exact opposite of my experiences with the BFG A/T. I've been through a set of them, 2 sets of Goodyear Wranglers, a set of Toyo A/Ts, 1/2 way through a set of 37" Iroks and now have another set of BFG A/Ts. The BFG's are hands down my favorite tire. They are great on wet pavement and amazing on snow and ice. I've never had an issue with fluctuating tire pressures, blow-outs or irregular wear.
On the other hand, I have 2 friends that have run Nittos and they have had balancing issues, are noisy and have worn funny no matter how they're rotated. But every vehicle is unique.

'Gonna have to throw my two cents in, I currently have the BFG T/A KOs. They do seem to wear very well, they are quiet, & do very well on DRY pavement. They aren't good wet weather! Water on the road, you best be gripping the steering wheel, cause it'll jerk your arm, and they slide in wet grass, which would be great if you're out in the grass for fun, but if your drive way is grass, and you're not planning on sliding unexpectedly into a parked car or the side of your house- not fun. I found this out first hand first day home with the jeep, it had rained on the way. I pulled in the drive way, less than 5 mph, tried to slow down to park it, all 4 wheels locked up and we (me and the jeep) slid between one parked car and the house into the back yard, luckily it slid straight & nothing was in the way. I won't be buying this tire ever! and I strongly warn anyone who considers it. I am considering the Maxxis Bighorn, or Goodyear Duratrac. Check out offroaders.com and tirerack.com for tire descriptions and reviews, then pick what best suits your needs.

I also have the BFG A/Ts and love them. I'm in the desert so I don't do mudding (wouldn't even if I could) but they work very well in rocks/shale/sand (if you air down), wear extremely well, (in fact i've never heard anything bad about their wear factor) and handle great on the road. "Mudding" is a whole different beast, no tire is going to excel in every category. And driving habits play a big role in wear and performance.
