33" BFG A/T's

It's recently put a 4" lift on my TJ, looking to getting some bigger tires now. I was looking into the BFG A/T's, anyone have any reviews or advice before I get them? Also, any pics of TJ with BFG's, and what rim would look good with these for a great bang for the buck. 😎

33x12.50 BFG AT's on 15x8 Ion wheels. Great on-road, long-lasting (50-60k), pretty good off-road except in heavy mud.

Just installed mine today, and a short ride from Kaufman tire to the house, so not much of a review yet. I read a lot of the reviews similar to TJMichael above. Not a big deep mud fan so should suit me well.

33x10.50r15s, TJ has a 3.25 RC lift. Love the look of the 33s vs the old 31s I had.

Ive got the BFG ATs and love them. I have them in some pretty good mud and they did well. The did really well on the snow in Vermont this winter as well. They let the Jeep float over the snow without getting stuck. Fun tires to have.

We've been running BFG KOs on the TJ since '98. Ran em in 31x10.5 and now 33x12.5
They are great tires, but I will be going with 35 MT/Rs next time around. Good tread life on them.

I think that BFG AT tires are kind of like the "standard" Jeep tire. Probably over half the Jeep Wranglers I see including mine run this tire. I have used them on my Toyotas as well for decades. They are probably the best all around off road capable tire ever made or at least the most popular.

Sounds like I'll be getting mines soon! So many good reviews on them!

Check discount tire. I bought 32x11.5x15s BFG's a/t last month at around $165/tire. Goodyear had a rebate on them but still isn't as cheap as DT. It seems the consensus on the BFG's are that they last at least 50K plus miles.

Do they have any good rims as well?

I thought normally they would stick BFG MTs for a standard tire. At least I know that's what they currently do for the JKs. TRD trim Toyotas normally run the BFG ATs stock. Either way BFG is just a damn good tire

I think 4 Wheel Parts is having a pretty good deal on the BFG ATs, like $180 a tire, maybe more but pretty cheap either way

BFG A/T vs Goodyear Duratrac...an almost endless debate. Check out numerous other threads. I heard there are some other that are even better and look cooler but I cannot remember the name of them right now.

The biggest differences in the BFG ATS and Goodyear Duratracs is the side wall and performance in mud. The BFGs have a stronger side wall than the Goodyears but do not perform as well as the Goodyears in mud.

Like what Skold said, there are some other threads that can tell you the big differences in the tires

What's a good backspace to have for 33x12.5 BGF's A/T?

If I remember correctly, I think 4.5". I hope another guy can comment on that to confirm it though

I would go with 3.75" to be safe. You can go onto DT's website to get pricing on wheels/tires. The local stores will match any online prices. I always get the warranty and the nice thing about DT is that they will allow you to swap for another set of tires if you don't like them within 30 days.(My local DT anyways)

This is my wife's Jeep. She has Mickey Thompson's (15x8) with 3.75 BS and it's just perfect. BTW, that's what the lift manufacturer recommended.
