Default AT tires. opinions

Ive ran the Bfg At ko on every 4x4 ive owned. i like how they preform on and off road for the type of driving and wheeling i do. Ive always seemed to get a good amount of miles out of them. Im just bored with them now.

what is comparable? I want something thats decent on and off road and looks nice and can get a decent life out of and also isnt insanely expensive

thanks

i have the firestone transforce AT's on my 2500HD and i love them. Good traction wet or dry, very long wear life, and with a e load range they handle the weight i tow no problem. also very quiet on highway drives.

I have had extremely good results with Yokohama Geolander AT/S tires. They take very little weight to balance, in fact I just had a set put on my 4runner, on all four, the largest weight is 1oz, most are 3/4 and one has only a 1/2oz weight on the inside. I had these tires on my previous truck, twice and the balancing was similar.

They wear like iron, given what I put them through. And have adequate traction in mud, snow, rain. Highway manners are excellent and are very quiet.

All in all, just a great tire. Seems they have the best of everything wrapped up in one tire.
