BFG T/A KO's VS Kelly Safari AWR VS Wild Country RVT

Looking at the above type tires. actually am told that Kelly makes the wild country RVT, so basically between the Kelly and the BFG's. Price is about the same. Bfg's would run $515.96 and the Kelly's would be $504.00 for size 32x11.50x15. I haven't seen the full size tire from Kelly in person yet, only a skinnier version, and it looks like a decent tread. i just got back from looking at the BFG's at Costco in the right size, and they too look nice. Biggest fear is I keep hearing how terrible the BFG's are in the mud. Most of the time, it's just hiway driving, around town and on gravel/dirt roads, but there are times during hunting, where the trails get rather mucky. I don't want to go with the mud terrain tire for this truck. We get a decent amount of snow and ice around here as well. Anyone have experience with the Kelly tires at all???

my buddy has those kelly tires and for the "mudding" we did i killed him, he tread gummed up before we even got there, the kelly's also dont have a 3 ply sidewall so you have a better chance of getting a flat with those. bfgs are way better, and look better too. (in my opinion)

i actually have a brand new set of 32x11.5 all terrain kos. i bought them but i decided to get new rims and a bigger lift, im putting them on 15x10 inch rims and see what they look like, if they are too small im going to get 33's, so i will tell you if i sell them, i have about 1000 miles on them.
