I put 40K on mine in a 1 year 4 mos, was used when i got em. Said they 50K tires. ended up going back with em. Like em so far

I priced some tires at Firestone when I bought 2 tires for the car. 265/70/16 BF Goodrich AT's were $150 a piece.

hard to beat the bfg's on a light truck. not so sure they are cut out for wear on a heavy one. i currently have over 30k miles on mine, and they are not even at half life, yet.

scott, that is a heck of a deal. however, the tire is made in different load ratings, and the lesser ratings are cheaper. i got the 'e' rated tires, due to the fact i carry some heavy loads often. mine were 1100 bucks...

Being 16" makes em cheaper too. You won't find an 18" for that in any load rating and that's what I'm gonna need.

I think I'm gonna go with Nittos. I just can't afford 1300.00 for a set of tires.

Hope I don't need them for a while though. My Duelers seem to be wearing good but I rotate every 5000

Thats a decent price........My OEM tires are 265-65-18...........Im sure a 275 would work fine.

Last time I checked BFG's were about 280.00 a tire online for 265-65-18 KOs ..........Then ya got to pay someone to put them on.
