Wow. The replies are truly eye-opening. My BFG MTs are getting old (and I bought them used so they are probably pretty hard) and I was planning on replacing them this year. The tread is decent...about 30% left. I bought a brand new spare rim and spare 32x11.5R-15 BFG MT and had it siped. Guess I'll just replace the other 4 and have them siped. It is VERY interesting to read what everybody else is using on their snow runs. Thanks very much for the replies.

i had bfg mts, and almost puked at their crappiness. maybe its just because i have used good tires in the past, but i thought they were horrible. they were about 85%, no i didnt wear them out, i sold them as soon as i could. fortunately everyone likes the pos's, so they have a good resale value.

for good off road grip, iroks, sx's, tsls, trxus mt's, toyo mt's when new (havent had the opportunity to try them when worn) , there are some others, but i cant think of what else works as good. the new bfg's may do ok, i have had good luck with the trxus sts's as well

I just put Trxus STS on and I'm in awe at what I go through and stick to. I was fairly pleased with my BFG AT's but these are much nicer. (33 x 12.5)

you said it. i had them on my old truck.

the Mickey Thompson MTZ's i'm currently running kick an ample amount of ass in the snow and slippery stuff (and are wearing great to boot).
