Looking for any input on the BFG AT tires. Who has run them and what do you think?

I'M looking to run 265-75-16 type on a 97 4x4 E350. Van weight is 7500 lbs unloaded. I tow 7000 lbs. on occasion.

Thanks in advance!

i run them on my tundra, a ton lighter than you, but i pull 7k regularly and they do real good, just pump them up to the max PSI when towing and youll be good to go, i just leave mine at 45 all the time, little bouncy cause they are stiff when im unloaded....but i still like them a lot, do real good on road and get me by off road

I also run them on my 3/4ton 'Burb. Have close to 40k on them and they are about due to get replaced. I will buy the same tires again, I thought they did everything I asked of them well.

I've run them on every truck I've owned. Great milage, good off-road characteristics for an A/T tire, and seems to take a load well. Though I've never hauled more than a combined 15,000 on them, but I have no complaints. I will be putting them on my F350 this spring. They are rated for more weight than my current tires, and perform WAY better in ALL conditions.

I have a set on my lifted Tacoma, and love them, they handle great for mild offroading, and are the best tires I have ever had in the snow. I will be looking for some for my Tundra soon!

I have a set of H2 Take-offs on my Dodge. 315/70R17, which is about a 35" tire. They ride nice and have decent traction. I just wish they were a bit narrower but I got them for a steal! Only have about 4K on them though, so I can't comment on wear. Guy I worked with had like 75K on his (Toyota pickup) and they still had tread, just starting to dryrot.

I have had very good luck with these tires until I put them on my SuperDuty. I was easily getting 50K on my 1/2 ton trucks. Put 265/75's on my SuperDuty and they are more than half gone at 20K. Gonna try something different next time.

I've got a set of 285's (load range D) on my Excursion, and it weighs 8000lbs, empty. I've got 30K plus on them, and they'll go another 10K.

running the 295/75-16's on my dodge....

sometimes I REALLY wish I had the MT's when trying to get around out here when its wet, but most of the time really like them.
They wear really well (my truck weighs about 7200#'s), I've got prolly 35k miles on them, and they've still got some decent life left in them, I figure they'll get swapped out before next winter, and unless I find a smokin' deal on something else, I'll go with another set of them.
also like the 295 size for its load rating...

I don't know if you have any near you, but check out BJ's wholesale. They were tons cheaper for me and come with the lifetime warrenty deal to boot.

I've had my 265/75/16's on my Ram for 2 years, 20k miles. So far, there's no noticable wear. I tow and haul fairly heavy loads fairly often.

Thanks everyone for all the help. I put BFG 265 X 75 X 16 AT's load range d on the van this weekend. Best price I found here in town was at America Tires. They were $700. even with all the warranties and Life time this and thats.

First impression is how much more quiet and comfortable the ride quality is. Big change!:smokin:

Regards,

Dan

My Superduty weighs just over 7K empty. I'm going to try out the Dick Cepek Fun Country II's next.
