    I know the feeling, I pulled out into traffic today and had to get on it a little harder than normal and wore probably two weeks worth of tread off my tires Damn near put the truck in the ditch while I was at it (the rear end wanted to pass the front).

    It is a little hard to keep good tread on them for long.:driving::D

    I've been runing the BFG AT's and got 40K out of the last set which isn't too bad. No problem with uneven tread wear when I replaced them, they were just about down to the wear bars all the way across.

    Now the ride, that is a different story. :frown2: Great while the tires were new, but after 10K or so, they start feeling squirrely.

    Don't try General Grabber AT2s, they don't last long at all. I only got 17,000 out of mine.:shiiiiiite:

    I've got almost 30k on my Terra Grapplers and still have another 10-15K left on them. I am not easy on my truck by any means either.

    I'm glad to hear that. I think they are mighty soft to the touch. I haven't liked mine since I put them on. At first they felt squirmy, now they feel a little better. I have 2k on them.

    Not looking forward to hooking up the 9600LBS camper next weekend.

    We'll see how they tow. Might be for sale soon.

    BFG at's are wearing pretty well considering the beating they take.:ihih:

    Stockers didn't last - one trip to VT towing over 8K. I got to a rest area for fuel and there was rubber all over my wells and rear quarters and had an indentation develop that ran all the way around the tire's sidewall on all four corner (not the vertical seam indents). :wtf:

    GM replaced with 285 BFGs.:sifone:
