I like the look of the BFG's but my dad just got some Mastercraft Courser A/T2's put on his Jeep Liberty. They are a damn nice tire for the $129 bucks a tire they cost us. I'll get some pics up soon, the ones on their website don't do them justice. I can't wait to get my hands on it and hit some mud & snow.

Love my Dura Tracs. Better than the BFG's imho. I've ran 3 diff. all terrain tires and 2 diff. mud terrain tires. The Dura tracs, seam to have a good balance between an at and an mt.

my buddy here in michigan has duratracs on his ranger he had bfg all terrains the year before both years went off into a ditch in the winter he had to pay 90 bucks for a tow truck the first year with the all terrains cuz they gummed up with snow and were like slicks the second year he drove out of the ditch with the duratracs. u have to remember the duratrcs are a extreme mountain winter tire says so on the side of them. they are extremely sipped for ice and snow yet do not wear down like a reg snow tire and they work amazingly well at cleaning the lugs of snow and mud if given the right amount of tire spin. think about this when u choose which u want.

I have ran several different tires. I have everything from bfg mud terrians, goodyear mtrs, swampers. I had a set of goodyear duratracs on my toyota pickup. They were the best all around tire I have every bought. Great combination for street and offroad. I now have a 2004 ford ranger fx4. I am going to sell my almost new general grabber and put a set of goodyears on. I found a best deal on discount tire.com. Still debating on what size to go with. I have 245 on now. Thinking of stepping up either a 265 or 285. More then likely I will go with 265.
