Just picked these up today :)

Well I got these for a price I couldn't refuse......Looks like you woun't have that inch on me after all SKRWZ....lol

The tires a true 35" BFG Mud KM's to go on my black truck when ever I feel like it, probly after the BD Lift since my mickey's already rub in bad holes. What a difference in size between a 315 and 35's...and they have less than 1000km's on them.

The Rims get to go on the F250 first thing tomorrow morning due to the ones already on the truck being bent.....new ones are polished the old ones aren't so that's a bonus!



I have a soft spot for a good set of BFG's


I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!

I had the all terrains in a 285/75/R16 and loved them as well, BFG makes good stuff here is a pic of them. Mud tires are truly better on heavy vehicles if it's a all around Daily and bush driver. For light trucks if you don't plan to go off road too much a good all terrain is much better





I'm also gonna talk to my tire guy about studding the Mickey Thompson's for this winter and I will keep the BFG's for summer

my understanding is mud tires are better on snow, and all terrains better on ice. though its all relative to how skinny a tire is for ice. bfg all terrains are winter rated too. i think aside from recreation (if any) i'll be doing 70% on road/hwy driving and 30% dirt/bush driving. worst of which is about a 1.5 km pathway to my parents cottage that i've been stuck on twice already this summer major hate for the goodyear wrangler tires that came on the truck.

just a matter of justifying the higher price and lower tread life for that added offroad traction

That's why I will be studding my Mud tires(the Mickey's) since I have another set of BFG's Mud's for summer now, city driving in the winter is fun with mud tires I was almost always in 4x4, pumping the breaks(I try not to stress out my ABS....lol).

Don't forget the Mud's look meaner and are a little more noisy.
