I've got the Radial T/A's on my Chevy and I absolutely love them. ALOT of my friends have those on their rides too and they do a great job....All RWD rides too. Pretty darn quiet....good tread wear....great in the rain and not too shabby in slush either....classic looking....decently priced too.

I've never had the BFGs, but I have heard a lot of good things about them. We got the Michelin LTX M/S put on my wife's Mountaineer back in the big tire recall a few years back. They've done great in both rain and snow, and the tread life has been amazing on them.

BFG's are pretty pricey compared to the Michellens... but i guess you get what you pay for.

I have the Michelin ltx/ms on my truck right now. They seem to be a great tire! I didn't put them on there, the original owner did but they seem to be holding up really good and they ride really nice. When i replace them however, i will be looking at the BFG a/t and General Grabber at2 because they have a more aggressive tread design and look which I am sure you know. just my 2 cents

I'd go with either a BFG A/T or a Bridgestone Revo2. Revo2 are GREAT tires especially in snow

im not sure is T/A is different than A/T but the BFG All Terrain tire is a great tire in my opinion. i've heard great things about the Michelin though

I think both are good tires. I presonally run the LTX/MSs on my ranger and they have been a great tire on road in rain snow and everything else. The only problem I have had is the sidewalls are rather week, I drive on construction sites a lot and the fine sand and clay really does a number on them and the sidewalls start cracking long before the treads worn out. My dad is on his 3rd or 4th set of them on a tundra and he always gets 80,000+ miles out of them which is why I bought them.

I'm not sure if BFG uses a three ply sidewall on the radial T/As like they do on the A/Ts and M/Ts but if they do then I might go with those assuming mileage is just as good.

I have those michelins on my truck (235 75 15) and im not very impressed. They seem to do fine in every aspect except snow. I have about 16,000 miles on them and they still look good, its over all a good tire but nothing to brag about in the winter.
