I have them as well. Came with the truck. This version is much better than the old BFG's.

Seem to work well with towing and clean out fairly well in the mud.

Nope, DRW's don't come that size. I think I have 17" rims.

Thanks for the reply Scott, I don't know any thing about the duallys.
Just curious what size were on your dually.
Wonder if they quit using the Michelins ?

I think the Fx4 models come with the BFG's as standard.

Mine is aFx4.

OIC, My 12 SRW FX4 came w/ the Michellin's and I don't Have any complaints. when I had a few miles on it I took it to tire shop and they said they were Excellent tires but toe in was off a bit. they must have been right cause the un-even wear on right front is gone. I'm Happy !!!

Same here... the Michelin's on my FX4 should be good for 40k or more. I'm rotating at 6k. Depending on driving habits some are getting 50k. I'm sure the BFG's are good tires too. I don't like tires that pick up rocks. These Michelin's won't grab anything larger than pea size but I've had some tires pick up marble size and larger depending on the tread of course.

Yes it was. My father in law put a little pressure on the tire rep and gladly replaced them with the KO's because Michelin owns BFG.

Thanks for the info. I am not at all impressed with the Michelin's. I thought they would be a plus when I bought the truck but I just turned over 30k on the truck and they are looking pretty wore. I do 95+% hwy and town driving. I pull a small enclosed trailer, but that should not matter much. I was sold on Yokohoma Geolanders for my old 99 and at 50k they would look just as good or better than these Michelin's at 30k. Same driving style. I usually rotate every oil change.
