Bfg's are very prone to side wall tearing and separating not to mention their casings are weak.If you live near shale like i do these are important things to think about,The coopers so far are the best we have found for chunking or chipping and if you do mainly offroad in the sharp stuff you can get them in chip resistant,more money but havent had any come back yet with a chip or slice and some guys are on their second set already.

Ive got courser AT's so I cannot comment on this exact model. I can say that they have held up very well though.

They do good in the mud. They are decent tires. Only thing bad i can say about them is they have a very thin sidewall. Can be cut fairly easy.

I have them on my ranger, and I LOVE THEM. I paid 124 brand new for 31s, in the mud for the price they are awesome they clean themselves very well. i had them on the snow this past winter and i had no problems with them either. and if you drive alot on roads say 40-55 they have a lil hum to them and get louder as they wear down but it is a mud tire. Ive have tem for abotu a year and a half aorund 8k on them with tons of thread left.

Mods are a lift kit that im not sure much how or if it is just a leveling kit I'm not sure how to tell the difference. But it has 31x10.50 Mastercraft Courser MT's but the truck can fit 33x12.50 which will be on it after these wear out. Also now has clear headlights and corner lights with 8000k HID kit.

Mastercraft courser mt


Bfg mk2



Jesus, it's not that freaking hard.. i swear you guys are so lazy.



I'd vote for the coursers for mud. It's all about liquid evacuation, once again, another bfg product doesn't measure up.

Thread pattern, it tells a lot on how a tire will perform.

That's why i have the tires i have, and not the T/A KO.

I have the Courser's in 32x11.5 and love them. They do as well in the mud as any of the KM2's I've seen, but I prefer them more for how they are on-road. There's very little noise on pavement, and the tread life is supposedly much better than KM2's. I've put 10,000 miles on mine and can barely see any visible wear.

Forman612 are you going for looks or performance? They are both awesome looking tires either would make your truck look sick, but me I have the mts and have mo complant about them in any mud snow or pavement. The bang for your buck is the mts personally I feel you can't bear em.

----------

Let me rephrase that, can't beat em for an all around tire. Meaning road mud snow, I have about 8k on the tires and hardly any wear.
