I have a set of 31s in the bfg a/t tread pattern with the ultra grip and I am happy with them. I had a problem with a piece of the tread coming off, but they replaced the tire under warranty no questions asked. I would buy a set again without hesitation.

They are 285/75R16. They are the Guard Dog style. Cost me $107 a tire, and $100 to ship. The seems and what not all look extremely good. Can't wait to get em' mounted and try em' out.

Yes, all matching, Yokomhama Geolander A/t are my sidewalls. I could have had BFG sidewalls, but i just asked to make sure they match. The company was very nice, and listens to what their customers want. The site said 5 days to process and 7 days to ship..I recieved mine in 6 days since i made my order. So thats about 3 days after my payment cleared.

Update - got them mounted and balanced today, and boy do they ROCK! I dont see any weights on them, because they come pre-balanced from Treadwright. Another thing. I had them mounted by a local tire supplier/store, and when i went to pick them up, he told me that Yokohama, is a good brand of tire, and will last me a while. So he couldnt even tell they were retreads, he thought they were offical Yokohama Geolanders. lol. Idno if thats saying the guy was an idiot, or that Treadwright knows what they are doing.

So how is the noise / ride of the new treads??? I had a set of the all terrains from them, and they made a bit of a whine that I didn't much care for. Curious how your tread pattern works.

My tread pattern has a howl to them. My exhaust covers that up while im driving, but when i slowing down, the howl can get pretty loud.

Not trying to hijack the thread. Just add my .02.

I got a set of 285/75/16s of the BFG copies on BFG casings. Belle Tire mounted them up for me on my new wheels (FZJ80 Land Cruiser wheels powdercoated semi-gloss black). Right after I got them mounted I was off to the UP for a week of trailriding covering all sorts of terrain. When I got back I had a trip to Flint and another to Grand Rapids. They have performed flawlessly for @ 2k+ miles. I could not make up my mind on what AT I wanted and after some research on these, I could nto find anyone with a bad thing to say about them that had a set.
