BFG Mud Terrains.. Who Has Them?

Well, Pro Comp quit making my beloved X-Terrain in 325/80-16. I don't want to buy new rims and moma gave me the green light for new tires. BFG makes it in a 345/75-16 and I'm planning on getting them, just want to know who has them and how they are wearing.

I have a set on mine. Theyre the KM2's similar to the military michelin Mud terrains. Bought the truck and was told they had 8k on them. I got another 3k since then, and they seem to be holding up OK. I'm down here in Ga so the roads are in pretty good shape. Nice even wear, but I dont expect to get the 45K out of these like I have the older BFG's Muds. I am expecting 30-35k on them. Very happy though, very little road noise and great road manners considering the agressive tread design. I do believe I would buy them again without a doubt.

I had them on a 96 f150 and they were a good tire. Really good in snow. Dont know how the weight of these trucks will affect them though.

i am on my second set of them, i have the old tread design though. i have been very happy with them, road noise isnt bad, i rotate mine every 5k and was able to get 80k out of the first set. i tow 8-10k bumper pull toy hauler and it does decent, you can feel a little wiggle when the wind catches the trailor. i dont do any serious off roading but racing motocross in mo means you are usually parked in a field somewhere. the closet or best mud run i had was being parked at the bottom of hill after raining all night, i had about a 200 yard run uphill pulling the trailor and made it barely, but i was the only one that was parked at the bottom that didnt have to be pulled out by the tractor that day.

I know a couple of D-Max's that run them and have gotten 50k+ out of a set. I just wanted to hear some of your guy's real world experience with them.

UcaN- have you run a set of them?

I did..... only got 40K out of them. I do pull an enclosed 26" trailer quite often, so that took a good chunk of life out of them.

They are a nice looking tire, but i don't like the road noise they produce.

I have since been running the All Terrain and love it. I was able to squeeze 60K out of my last set rotating them every 5k religiously....

Jeff, I've heard the same as what Joe is saying, that the Toyos are the way to go.

I'd love to run the Toyo if they made it in a 37", but I know the 35 will be to small with my 4.30's, and the 38 I'd have run some 8" lift springs. I do have a spare set of springs I could get re-arched, and that was a serious consideration, but the 345/75-16 BFG makes would suit me fine. I don't want to spend money on new rims, that's why my choices are limited. As far as getting 40k out of a set of MT's, not to shabby in my book.

That's the thing Joe, I don't want to buy something I don't need, hence me leaning toward the BFG. But dang, you almost have me talked into a set of Toyo's.

Hmmm, so you have limited options then...

I have heard lots of great things the BFG's as well, so I don't think you'll go wrong with them.

My only issue with the BFG's is tread wear. Otherwise I have never read about anything bad... Just tread wear.

Well, I'm going to keep my options open, guess I'll hunt around on CL for some 17's and see what turns up.
