I can PM you tire prices. I have my book infront of me. I have a dealer account thru tirerack. I pick the tires up in southbend to save on shipping cost too makes it nice and easy.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

BFG AT, great all around tire IMO. Very good road manners, wear well (50K miles on each set I've owned), very good in the dirt and rocks. I don't think you can go wrong with them if you are looking for an AT.

I am happy with this, my second set BFG Ats but a lot of people on here really like the Duratrac-my problem with that is I don't do enough "muddin'' to need those and they cost more. (But not much) Depends on your use. For the money and my use I can't beat the BFGs

I've run BFG AT's in 31x10.50R15 and 245/75R16. They're a great tire. I found them to be excellent in the winter conditions, until about half tread. Once the tread started getting down, they packed with snow easily, had reduced siping and really started to slide badly on ice/snow/slick conditions. I even had to warranty two 15" BFG's because all the siping in the center peanuts was gone after 10k miles...the mold didn't make it right. The second set of 16" BFG's i used were all like that...zero center siping after half tread. The BFG quality has gone downhill in recent years.

I went with Duratracs for the new set of 33s. I do not wheel mud at all. Duratrac's are a hybrid tire - but classified as an all terrain. My 33" spare is a 7 year old BFG AT, nearly bald...all the siping is there, unlike my old 31s.
