Default BF Goodrich® Commercial T/A Traction - anybody use them?

Looking to replace the tars on my old f250, these look like they have more tread depth than the mall terrains that need replaced.

Looking for longevity - the mall terrains have 60K on them and have about 4/32" left.

BTW, I'm looking for a "traction" tire since my f250 weighs around 9000 with the camper on back and is 2WD.

My first set of Rugged Trails went 62k before the sidewalls cracked. Still had about 9/32" left. This set looks like they will last about that long as well. They just don't have a ton of traction in wet/sandy conditions. They load up quickly. They probably wouldn't be a good choice for 2wd.

Wait - is your second set the commercial T/A traction or another set of Rugged trails?

This is what I'm considering:

Sorry, the second set was another set of Rugged Trails. I posted mainly for the milage comparison to a vehicle that weighs in about the same and tows fairly heavy. Those do look to be a slight bit more agressive than the Rugged Trails.

I saw a set of these at Discount recently and they come in a Load Range E for towing. They are the Nitto Terra Grappler AT for about $190/tire. I may have to try a set once my RT's are dead next spring.

If you look at the nittos - they actually have higher load ratings than the other E tires.

don't go with the commercial BFG's unless you are always going to be on pavement. I get stuck on wet grass with mine.

Are yours the all-season:



or the traction:



?

I honestly can't see the "traction" version getting stuck in wet grass...

If i don't go with new 2500 dodge 17" takeoffs, I will probably go with these...

Can't beat that price for a Load range E AT. Maybe they have your size.

Some reviewers on Discount Tire were getting 50+K out of them.

I need tires BAD.

Mine are the top ones, I bought them last year to get a little better MPG.........Big mistake, I have been stuck twice in grass now, the first time I had to call AAA because the tires acted like pizza cutters under that diesel, and it buried to the axle. The tires actually sliced through the sod. (although the sod was moist)

To be honest, they really aren't wearing any better then the TA KO's I had before this set.
