My ATs did great in the rocks. You had to watch where you put them because they are weak but they get great traction on rocks. But if you are looking for a tire with Great on road handling, good traction on snow and wet rocks, and a smoother ride (softer tread) go for the BFG ATs.

If they are getting torn apart, then the rubber compound is not quite as hard as you need it to be for what you like doing. On my previous Jeep, my BFG ATs wore more quickly off road than I expected. On this Jeep, my old style MTRs even chunked up pretty bad in Johnson Valley. I switched to the new MTRs recently but haven't gone back to JV yet to test them out thoroughly. Of course, it always depends on what you use it for, how many miles you need them to last, and how much you're willing to spend.

My last set of BFG AT's didn't last near as long as three sets that I had on a small p/u. I got a great deal on a set of MTZ's that I currently running.

315/70/17 w/ 4" lift, 07 JK....I just switched from ProComp Xtreme M/T to BFG ATs and I LOVE THEM!!!! Especially if you do highway driving, which I have 3 hour drive to either mountains or beach in NC. Hey, you've gotta get there first before you hit the trails right? I got 35,000 mi from the ProComps before they beat me to death driving on street. I had to let them go and lost sleep over which tires to get. The BFGs are best tires I've ever had and look awesome! You want regret it.

Bfg ats have always been a great tire for me. They will clog is mud but if your into rocks and driving on the road they'll do the job. Also they will still get you through the occasional mud spot on the trail but don't get them if you intend to mud bog.

You can see how mine started to collect sand and mud fairly quick. I also don't spin my tires on that stuff because I'm afraid of my rear end jumping with a d35.

i cant speak for how they do for a jeep but i will never run them. i just got rid of a set on my f-350, they barely lasted 20,000 miles ( pressure was perfect and rotated regularly)and after about 1/2 worn they were very dangerous in rain. sucked for off road and i was not in anything major. didnt realize how bad they handled till i replaced them. i know alot of my friends have ran them for years but i wont even consider BFG AT for the jeep when i buy tires in next cpl months.

Ive got the 33" . I just got em about 2 months ago and after 1500 miles and 5 wheeling trips (mostly rocks) like they still look brand new. I have a 4" SL and i never really rub the 33's. I could definitely see it with 35s though

I do most of my wheeling on the beach, trails, and getting to camping spots that require 4 wheel drive. Been through a little bit of mud (not deep)...So far I've been happy with my A/Ts. They're a good tire for light/light-moderate wheeling and road driving. Next tire will probably Goodyear MTRs though.

I have had them on a few pick-ups. They have good highway manners and are good in snow that is not crazy deep. They get chewed a bit on gravel roads, but maintain good traction if the gravel gets wet. They do not do well in muddy conditions. The tread fills fast and you must tap the throttle and spin them clean.
I stopped using them On my work trucks as they have let me down too often on muddy lease roads.
