    Default New BFG Rugged Terrain Tire

    I just happen to be close by the local 4 wheel parts store during lunch and came across this new tire by BFG. It seems like a mild ATish tread but with side bitters on it. I am just curious if anyone has just recently bought these or knows someone who has them. I really want a true "hybrid" tire seeing that from March to October i dont see much of anything but concrete then hunting season begins then well I see it all. Wondering if would be a good investment over some of my other choices I have in mind. Kinda on the fence post now.

    I guess they're tryin to do just like Nitto did with there Trail Grappler being Between a Nitto terra grappler And Nitto mud grappler but i believe that really is a good idea for people with multiple needs.

    I have that august issue around here somewhere. Probably didn't pay much attention to it at the time since I have/had my mind set on trail grapplers or dura tracs. I hate decisions some times but at least the tire shops here have a 30 day ride and try type program.

    Here you go...this will link you directly to the article. The articles from both magazines are probably similar.

    I think the Nitto Trail Grapplers look way better then the BFG Rugged Terrain but that's just my opinion!

    I really don't like the looks of BFG tires anyway except the ko's all other designs don't have that appeal for me..
