How long do A/T tires generally last..??

I know it depends on the brand but how long do A/T generally last. Say something like, LT305/70R18, Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ.

It all depends on driving habits really, i had BFG A/Ts they didnt last long at all. Look up reviews on them.

I am running bfg ATs also, except mine are running nicely. Almost 3 years on the jeep with at least 50% tread left

Mine came with a 40,000 mile warranty which is pretty nice

Might have been a bad batch or you have suspension problems. Bfg a/t's are known to wear like iron. Mine always have.

my only experience with bfg a/t's was terrible....1998 s-10 with 31x10.5's and they lasted a whopping 26000 miles...3 flats and I will never again purchase an a/t from bfg! I've had good experience with the nitto's and no flats so far on my jk. wear is mainly determined by driving habits, how often you rotate, and rubber composition. if your tires are soft rubber they won't last as long, but they should get much better traction. hard tires of course are the oppisite. they'll last long, but more than likely won't get as good of traction. I consider the bfg's to be the most overrated a/t on the market even though everyone rants and raves about them....they're way too expensive and can't survive the hot summers here in arkansas.

Those are made by Cooper Tire and are comparable to the Discoverer STC.
Like the others said, it depends on what you've done with/to them.
15,000 miles of gravel or 60,000 miles of Illinois street. Temperature, skinny pedal modulation, inflation pressure, and driving surface aggregate all make a difference on wear.
