I'm a fan of the BFG ATs and MTs. I've run both of them before, but not on a Jeep. I plan on running 315/75x16 on a 4dr JK.

Any thoughts?

I run the BFG KMs (first gen mud terrain) and have been very happy with them on the road and on the trail. I've heard that the sidewalls are kind of weak but I've never had a problem with them and I've smashed them up on rocks down at the badlands. When these wear out my next set of tires will either be some type of swamper or the BFG KM2 and with the discount my step dad gets it will probbley be the KM2s, just can't beat that for 33s.

If your running them on mainly pavement or for light trail duties i would recommend AT's just for the longer life, If you plan on hitting the mud holes or do alittle more off-road than a dirt road i would go with MT's

just my 2cents

Especially the BFG A/T KO.....


My suggestion to you is if you don't want to go the M/T route, but want a more aggressive A/T, check out the Cooper Discoverer S/T tire. It's a great tire that gets great reviews.

I have went through a lot of mud with my BFG AT's! I was in a mud bog with them and went 196' of the 200' run. That was some pretty sloppy stuff. I want a more agressive tire myself, though. It also depends on how much road noise you want. The more agressive the tire the more road noise.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like it'll be MTs!
