Who runs BFG T/A 33x10.5X15?

I really don't care for the bloated 12.5" look and am thinking a more narrow tire would also track a bit better.
Advantages and disadvantages of running the more narrow tire?

I LOVE my 33x10.5x15s. I run the BFG KM2s but they have advantages everywhere except very deep powdery snow or sand. In my opinion they were made for Jeeps and there should be more options available.

I run the all terrains 97.5% road 2.5% trail
Low noise on the street and takes me to the end of the trail everytime .
The 12.50 would be nice for extra flotation but other than that I'll keep running the 10.50

One of my good friends has the 12.50s and they are great in the mud and not bad on the road. These would definitely be great for mileage and almost as good in the mud.

If the M/T's get close to the same miles I would deal with the noise and crappy handleing.

I had a scary experience when water and oil are om the road, It rained in Vegas ans I might as well have been driving on ice. I almost spun out once and needed 4WD to get home.

So, do you like or not like the above mentioned BFG's, and oil/water, no matter what tires you have your gonna spin out... Glad you didn't crash.

I have the same tyre but in 32" on 16" wheels and I am very happy. On tarmac they are great and I have not had any issues on the trail aside from in mud. Sofar they have been very good on the rocks as well aside from chipping. My next tyres will be Trepadors though.

I love BFG's just not the mud terrains as the noise factor and there is not much mud in Vegas so the all terrains are a better fit for me.

I have the 33x10.50 KM/2's and they've worked well so far. I have ran the A/T in the past and it is an awesome tire. Long life and works well in everything but mud.

I have been running the 10.5 KO's for about 4 years now. They are a compramise, works well on rocks but mud makes them slick fast. Great on road manners. Quiet, decent wear. I like the narrower look as well, helps in snow and makes my jeep a little narrower so I can take different lines on rocks sometimes. Also love that my jeep pretty much looks stock, until closer inspection anyway. All in all, simply think this is the best tire & size for a 95% pavement Jeep. May be a compramise but a perfect one for me.
