    Over the course of 2 GM 4x4 trucks and several years, I have only run BFG A/Ts. I have not had any problems with them at all. Beyond typical city driving, I use them for long road trips as well as moderate off-roading. While off-roading, I air them down to about 20lbs and they perform great. When driving in the city or on road trips, the tires are quiet, relatively speaking, and drive nicely.

    X2 on the BFG AT's, I've had mine for about 3500 miles and they're great, fairly aggressive tread but still very quiet on-road. Plus, they look really good at a distance, which is always a plus.

    I have the BFG T/A KO's.

    I love them. They do it all. I have had a few sets on my old jeep and I just bought a set for my new 2010 GMC. I am glad I did as they are running so smooth and quiet and straight. Great on the highway, quiet for an AT tire, excellent handling, they last 60K +, are good in snow, sand, rain, offroad, they have won more offroad races than any other tire, they are tough as nails with one of the strongest sidewalls, they are the most popular best selling AT tire in the U.S. by highest sales, and they look great. Tested, proven, Tried and true. What else do you need?

    X3 on the BFG A/T's. I have them on my '05, 315/70-17 and the have over 30,000 miles on them and there about 1/2 worn. I usually get 60,000 to 65,000 out of a set. Keep 'em rotated.

    my trail gapps have done me good, i drive home from college about every other weekend 6 hours there and then 6 hours back. they have held up great and once its time for new tires i will make the same choice. there is some noise, but nothing like the mud grapplers. i like it cause i like a little noise from the tires, it gives your tuck that "truck with mud tires'' sound. but if u turn your radio up a bit it fades away. so far the wear is even and for all the mile there doing good.
