ive heard really bad things from the Toyos, dont get em! Ive heard they suck really bad in rain. If you can afford BFGs, get em. Im not to keen on the Duratracs. im getting tires soon as well, to tell the truth, i really want bfgs, but i just cant justify paying a $hitload for them. The AT2s have almost EXACTLY the same tread pattern with a slight variance. The AT2s jsut dot have the same 3-ply wall thickness that the BFGs do, but i dont off road hardly any, so i dont need that feature. ive heard nothing but good out of the AT2s, so ill give em a try. not to mention they are ALOT cheaper!

My next set of tires will most likely be the Duratracs. I want something that is a little more aggressive than an AT, but is still good in snow and ice. I personally I think that the BFGs get overrated. They are good tire, but just not worth the price and attention they get. Quite of few of my friends have had the Toyo's and to them, they acted just like any other AT. They never really had trouble in the rain like everyone says, and like any AT got gunked up with mud in no time off-road. They don't clean themselves out that well.

I love mine. So far they've ate through everything I've needed em too. For the price locally I couldn't turn them down.. A little noisy but what mud terrain tire isn't a little noisy...?

it really depends on your budget.. if you have the dough to shell out for BFGs', than go for it, Grabbers perform near identical for considerably less money, the price of 5 Grabbers is the same as the price for 4 BFGs. either tire you choose, you wont go wrong

to me the BFG is the best tire ., if you dont have the cash you dont but I would save a lil longer and get the BFGs ,.., just what i think

good BFG story .,.,i was wathing this thing on TV about the baja 1000 a car hit a tree a big tree it tore the A arm OFF and broke the wheel .,they fixed the car and put the same tire that flew off back on .,,.they finished the race on that tire
