I'm running them and they haven't let me down so far. Very grippy and quiet on the highway for what it is.

It depends on what type of driving you do. What is your main objective? Are you looking for a tire that can crawl or just handle light trails? Is your Jeep a daily driver or weekend warrior? There are a lot of things to take into consideration when deciding on a tire. Does it need to handle snow or mud or both? Give us a little more detail of your objectives and we can better help you out with suggestions. Remember that the most popular tire may not be the right one to suit your needs.

I live in South Carolina so there isnt much snow but i do take trips to the mountains in the winter. It is a daily driver, mostly road driving, but i also like hitting the trails and of course MUD

I honestly love Dunlop Radial Rovers. They are a little pricey but I got well over 120k on my last set...granted they were ready to go by that point but I still could've ridden on them for a little while longer.

The bfg AT tire is a great all around tire. It will get you into and out of a lot of situations. I ran them foe a while and was very happy with them. With that said, in mud, they will pack quickly and leave you feel like you are driving on racing slicks. If you do a lot of mud, look into a more aggressive tread AT or even a mud tire. Hope this helps out.

BFG A/T from experience:

Great dessert tire
Decent snow tire
Horrible mud tire
Pretty good street tire and milage is good. Noise isn't bad. Needs prompt rotate but especially BALANCE!
Loose rock good.
Never used it for rock crawling so IDK.
I like them the best for my construction fleet but I don't always buy them because of price.
I've never run them on a jeep. But I've burned through plenty of sets in everything else

One of the most popular AT tires. They do great in dirt, gravel, sand and of course dry pavement. I was suprised how much the noise level increased as they wear down. If I was going to purchase another AT tire I personally would go with the Duratrac based on reviews.

The only thing I have noticed about the BFG AT's is the rubber composition is a little bit like an eraser in that its a bit crumbly, I don't know if its just an issue with mine but it seem like every time I go wheeling and look at my tires after there are new chunks missing.
