the ruggeds do wear very well, unfortunately their traction in everything sucks horribly. in my experience.

I rarely have ANY trouble in snow, rain, or slush with the Rugged Trails. I usually put 500+ pounds of bagged rock salt in the bed every fall to help. They do get gummed up in mud pretty quickly though.

ive been stuck on flat ground on the ice. ive been stuck in 4inches of snow, they spin like mad in the rain, and slide like crazy when braking in the rain. they dont stop worth a poo in snow/ice either. been stuck in soft sand a few times as well.

very lame. these were on two trucks, both 2005 cummins 2500 automatics.

I'm steering towards the firestones and toyo's. I looked and searched on the bfg's, the sidewall cracking seems to be a problem and I don't know if I like the closed pattern on them. They are similar to some goodyears that I had on an s-10 which would grab and go but would not stop for nothing.
I had some generals on a cj that were okay on the road but sand was not good. The Revo's get excellant reviews but for 200 bucks a tire I would put on mtr's which I had good luck with on my cj.
