    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.

  2. One of the 4x4 magazines just did a wright up on these tires. I will see if I can find the issue and let you know.

    It was 4 Wheel Parts' "Off Road Adventures" magazine, August 2011 edition.
  4. Off-Road magazine, October 2011, page 46. They said its between a BFG A/T and a BFG M/T km2. Got a good wright-up.

    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.

    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..

    Ordered them last night from Discount Tire - Free shipping, plus $50 visa card on BFG tires right now. Got 6 months no interest + $30 visa card for using the Car Care Card. Should ship tomorrow. The $80 in cards will almost cover the mounting & balancing quote I recieved. All in $804 - can't beat it compared to ather quotes I got on the same tires($1050 - $1125). They have really good reviews and I found several favorable write-ups from different off-road publications. They have a 50,000 warranty which is hard to find on an AT. I'll keep everyone updated once I get them mounted.

    I would really like to know Duck when you do get them mounted and first ride impressions. The warranty is one thing that first caught my eye then the some what hybrid look is had to it. I am going to check out the link posted up and see if it says anything different from the mag. The only thing I wish the mags would do is test tires on full size rigs. The august mag was running them on Toyota mid size truck.

    duckduckdog are you or will you be planning on taking these off the beaten path on occasion or strictly using these as a commuter tire. I am going to to have to write your name down and keep up with how they do since I have until 1st oct. to decide. Pics would be cool if you get the time when you get them on as well. Also what size did you end up going with?

    Yeah - I plan on using them off the beaten path occasionally. I don't do a lot of off-roading, but I have some remote areas that I hunt that will test their traction. I decided on these because it sounds like they really are designed for the type of driving I do. I drive my truck as my daily driver all week, but on the weekends, I'm usually out running trails or hunting and need something more aggressive than a highway tire, but definitely don't need a full-blown off-road tire. I hope that they will work out like I think they will. One thing I noticed when comparing them to the Firestone Destination A/T (which was also on my short list) is that the tread depth on BFG's are 12.5/32 compared to 11/32 on the Firestone. That should not only give a little more traction, but also gives you 16% more useable tread.
    I ended up going with the 275/60/20 and they will be mounted on the Tahoe wheels. I'll definitely be posting some pics as I expect this will completely change the look of my ride. I'll do some before and after! LOL

    One article I read, (I think it was a crawl mag) put them on their full size tow rig and had some good things to say about them. Here is a link to the article:

    I'll definitely keep everyone posted once they arrive and I get them mounted.

    I had a brand new set of 285/75/16's KO A/t's on my beast and they were the worst tire I have ever had, PERIOB BAR NONE, and this was in the winter as well. so they drove in every condition MN could throw at them in a 2 month period that year. I get rid of them and got my Maxx traction dunlop Rover M/T, these are awesome, yes a mud tire even in winter was awesome

    I had a set KO's on a previous truck and got real good service out of them. I was surveying back then and ended up in a lot of nasty places so I needed the traction and they always pulled through for me. Don't really need that right now, so I'm hoping the new Rugged Terrains will fit the bill.

    BTW - just got the email, they have shipped! :D

    Thanks for the link duckduckdog and assuming by your name when you say off beatin path its to get to the duck blind. Your driving sounds a lot like my style of driving daily driven truck with use away from all the concrete. I am going to have to go back to the store and just stare at these for a while.

    Well I think this is the tire I'm going to go with. I live in Vancouver, Canada and get tons of rain and am only 20 min. from the back country with lots of snow and lots of back roads. So my tires should be done in Aug. and I found them for $211.00 installed. I just want to make sure I get all the tread I paied for (250.00 per tire). Thanks for all the feedback and thanks to MFLEETWOOD for pointing me to the right form.
