    I'm looking at the BFGoodrich AllTerain TA/KO to replace a set of BFG RuggedTrails.

    Any other suggestions besides the AT to check out?

    been researching it a little, and it seems the BFG AT K/O is praised by everyone. Another tire that keeps receiving mention is the Bridgestone Dueler Revo.

    I had a set of those BFG AT K/O's on my Bronco, they were great tires, I only got stuck twice with them, once was in an ice storm, couldn't even walk across the street. The second time I got out and my front wheels weren't even touching the ground :)

    I want a set for my Dodge now, but they're $200/ea for the size I want.

    wow, what size?

    I was looking at a modest 275/75R16 or 285/75R16 and they're about $120-140.

    I have the Nitto Terra Grappler ATs and i'm very happy. They are a little better on-road than the BF Goodrichs. It depends on what you do. If you are off-road more than 10% of the time i would say nothing is better than the BFs, but if you only go sometimes i would go Nitto. They are off road capable, but are made more for on road. They wear awesome, and i have no noise at highway speed.

    Also it's funny you posted this, i have a set of 31" BFgoodrich AT sitting next to my computer desk. I can reach over and touch them. They are for my buddies Cherokee.

    they have pretty bad road noise, and don't wear well.

    Everyone has told me to stick with the AT's unless you do a lot of muddin'

    I'd like to go with 305/70R16, but I haven't looked at prices in a while. I probably won't need tires until a year from now.

    the bfg mt are awesome tires, they still get like 50k miles on them if you keep them properly inflated and rotated.
