Default BFGoodrich A/Ts - VS - Toyo Open Country A/Ts

Been doing some reading/ money crunching and have decided to get new All-Terrain tires for my Ranger. Just wanted to know if anyone on the form has experience with, Toyo, Open Country All-Terrains and or BFGoodrich, All-Terrains. Wondering what the tread life is for both, over all pros/ cons, and how loud they are on the highway. Wanted to know if I am paying more for the BF name or just an over all better quality tire. I use my truck for light to moderate off road use up to trail heads and a pretty good deal of highway driving to and from work.

I have the stock 16 inch rims, planning on using them, and after reading many post from other threads I have decided to go with the 265/70/R16 as the tire size. Think it will give it a more aggressive look. Any other tires you all recommend please give me your in-put. Thanks guys!

I just put 215/85/16 BF Goodrich Commercial Traction T/A's on my truck.
They were "only" $140 apiece from Sears. They hum on the road and I kind of like it. They do not howl or have a rhythmic loud soft loud soft pattern.
They do great in snow, forest roads and trails, and rocky gravelly stuff.
I consider them a premium tire and they are made in the USA.

Something to think about...

I am not sure where you are from so I can not look for deals near you. I picked up a set of BFG AT's last weekend for my truck and they were $160 a piece for 33x12.5x15. I do not have many miles on them yet but I do know that they are awesome in snow.

Toyo Open Country A/T has a much better thread design than the closed walled BFG.



There are a few reviews in here with pics if you'd like to check for opinions.

I've ran both on my truck I liked them both for different reasons. The Toyo's were on my truck when I got it they did great in all weather conditions. Not as good in the bfg's in the deep snow and mud. The only terrain I did not have the Toyos on was sand so I can't rate them for that. For tread life it goes to Toyo, unless you keep up on the tire rotations for the BFG's, I have 50,000 on my BFG's and rotate them every 6,000 with pressure checks every 3,000 and they look almost brand new, but its a pain to keep up on them. Road noise, the BFG's are slightly louder due to the opened up sholder lugs. In the sand, the BFG's did great, they got me every and any where I wanted to go at silverlake sand dunes. As for the Toyo's I don't know like I said. In the snow I found that the BFG's like the deep fluffy stuff better but the Toyo's did better on the hard packed. Wet roads they were equal, same as dirt roads. In the mud, the BFGs I believe are better they require less wheel spin to clean them then the toyo's. And for overall looks I like the BFGs I think they just look more aggressive then the toyo's and I like the full color filled white letters better then the outlined white letters. I personally like the BFG's better though. Oh and when taking the truck into the woods for hunting the BFG's are great I've found that the toyos slipped a little in off camber situtaions with leaves and stuff on the ground. The only major down side to the BFG's is they can grab and hold large stones and when they come out you hear it if they hit the floor boards or the bed. The down side to the toyos was the closer tread lugs did not grab as much stuff as the BFG's do. It is more of a personal choice though because I would run both again on my truck.

Boy could not have said that better . I had the Toyo's on My Dodge 1500 extended cab and I had a posi rear end . 2 wheel drive . I loved the tires as I could go places some 4Wheelers could . In snow they are great as We have a little snow up here in New England . I noticed a lot of power and they would spin but , in low power they grabbed and pulled me out . Quiet with the windows open , no scalloping , or rounding , as you did , I rotated and kept the right pressure in them . I loved them as an all season tire ... Sand I cannot tell you , as I did take it out locally to non 4 wheel drive places but not running on the beaches . A friend had a silverado and ran them and loved them . He took his out on the sand down the cape ( cape cod ) and loved them on the beaches .


I believe they were 16's as well .

I have both the Toyos and the BFGs and they are both fantastic tires.

Heres my truck with 265/70R16 toyos, the toyos are great in the on the street and in the rain, smooth and quiet, but they don't dig in like the BFGs do. they do well in snow and dirt/gravel but if it gets muddy they struggle. out of the 5 sets of toyo a/ts my family has had they average about 50-60k especially if you keep them rotated.



Heres the truck currently with 285/75R16 BFGs. (I have also had 31x10.5R15s and 33x10.5R15 bfg on my old truck. The BFGs are a little loader on the road and wear about 40-50k. but they are still great on the street and just aggressive enough for 95% of my needs. they have great traction everywhere rain/snow/gravel/dirt and do reasonably well in the mud.



You will be very happy with either choice they are great tires. Hope this helps you.

I know it took me awhile, but the day has finally come! Got my Ranger some new rubbers, so her and I can have some fun while being safe . Went with the Wrangler Silent Armor, 265/75/R16 they are extremely quiet on the highway which is a plus. Also put on a new side exhaust system.
