Since we always seem to have debates on tires I thought I would share my experience with these tires. I work on my own vehicle and put these tires on my truck at 89,187 back in Feb. of 2010. Now I will admit that these tires need to be rotated and balanced every time you do an oil change (which is 6k for me using synthetic) in order for them to last.

Well with deer season upon us and my lease a few hours away I decided it was finally time to put some new ones on. I went back and looked at my service history to find the mileage at which I installed them. I am now at 183,994 which puts these tires at 94,807 miles. These tires still have about 5-6/32nds tread life left but with the mileage and age they are hard and starting to separate some of the treads which is the only reason I am replacing them. The tires are not separating in the normal sense but the tread is starting to have chunks come off the tread basically and could possibly cause a separation/blowout.

Again these tires need maintenance in order to last this long and keep them from chopping and wearing the tread unevenly.

Just thought I would share for those of you looking for new tires. One other thing is this tire has been the same tread design for about 15 years and hasn't changed. That should tell you something about a tire and it's performance. grin

Every kind of tire needs to be rotated and properly maintained, not just the BFG's. These tires are very good, and getting that kind of mileage is impressive. Overall, they are a great tire for everyday use with the occasional offroading trip. My only complaint with these tires is in wet offroad conditions, or any type of mud - but really, they arent made for that so its hard to bash them too much there. I still like the BFG AT and will probably put a set on my wifes Land Cruiser when she is due up for new tires.

I am not saying i don't believe you but if you got that kind of mileage you might get a hold of BFG an let them know because i think that would be a big deal for them , i never have seen or heard of any BGF's getting over 50k and at that point they where bald. They are ok tires but would never use them on any vehicle that i depend on and drive any any kind of weather other than dry streets.And let the @ss eating begin GOOOOOOO

I have ran BFG's on my truck with the exception of 2 sets that I tried those "other" brands. We run them on our work trucks that travel around town and we typically put 45-55k a year on those trucks, both city and ranch.

Never pushed one to 90k, but doesn't necessarily shock me. Most of ours will make it 60k without an issue and have tread left when we switch them out. If it is off season, we will push them farther.

Never got under 50k on any of the sets.

They are pricey, but worth it for the performance. Also never had an issue on wet roads and the two times I stuck one of the trucks, it wasn't the tires fault.

I have ran 3 sets of them to well over 80,000 miles and they were not bald.

I will post pics of the tread, build date (DOT) code, and also pics of service history with mileage and current mileage on the repair order. But you probably still won't believe me grin

You won't hear me complain about getting 90k out of a set of tires. BFG AT KO is the only tires I have ever used, but I don't keep trucks long enough to wear them out.

Yall tow very much ? My dad had a set on his F350 and he hauls a lot of loads around 14-20 lbs and he would wear out the back tires in about 25k if he was lucky so this last time he got the falken AT's so we will see how they hold up under heavy use.

We don't. All of ours were on 1/2 tons and at most, haul a 16' flatbed.

You half ton guys have it so easy...90k on one set of tires? I could run train car wheels instead of rubber and not get 90k

Got 40k with them on a dully... but you cant expect to much out of any softer tread and towing a lot.

Proper inflation and regular rotation make a HUGE difference in how long tires last. My cousin runs BFG mud terrains on a 3/4 ton crew cab cummins and has yet to get less than 63k miles on a set, he is on his 3rd set, got 63 out of the first and 65 out of the second.

Dad and brother both got over 65k miles on factory tires on crew cab d-maxes. Dad got little over 70k on the next set of bridgestone A/T's and is on a set of duratracs now.

I put 43k miles on the factory p-rated tires on my '11 z71 and they looked new when I sold them. All I did was keep properly inflated and rotated ever 7k miles.

When I had my 1986 K5 Blazer I had BFG AT's on it. They were on there when I got it. No idea how many miles they had on them when I got it but I put probably 50K on them in the time I owned the truck and they were still on there with plenty of life left in them when I got rid of it too. I also towed a boat with it quite a bit and didn't notice any uneven wear.

Worst tires I ever had in both the mud and wearing...I had them on 2 different Super Duty's and they flat sucked! Glad y'all have better experience than I did with them. I wouldn't put them on my truck unless they were free.

Sounds like they are obviously different in a 1/2 ton truck but I'll stick to the Toyo or Cooper.

BHG All terrain / TA ..the last 7 have been replaced due to tread separation. Tires were rotated every 5000 miles. They all had good tread. I think the manufacturer has changed something. These were on a F-250 diesel. No more.
