I have the BFG MT's and have been planning on buying a hot knife and sipping them myself. They would work much better on rocks and ice if they were sipped. I only worry about chunking.d-rap said:The BFG Mud Terrains, my new tires, are not siped. BFG does that on purpose, of course, and I'm not sure why. Their own tech. on the phone wasn't sure. Lots of other M/Ts are siped.
Has anyone siped their BFG M/Ts? If so, what were the performance results? Lots of people love them on snow and ice in their stock un-siped state. Any arguments against siping them? I'm surprised to hear that tires wear better siped, for instance. Does it limit "chunking"?
Most BFG AT's are rated for "severe snow" this allows you to use them when the chain controls state"Chains Mandatory or 4x4 with snow tires on all 4"pavementSucks said:so ive been reading about the BFG ATs and you say they arent good in the mud and snow but heres my question... are they better in the snow and mud than the stock tires on the S model, the long trails i think?
why im asking is because here in nebraska we see alot of mud and snow and when i start looking for new tires i want to know this stuff.
Let me know how this goes...my wife has bought into the skids and sliders already, but the bumpers (especially the front) is a bit more of a sell. The skids are easier to sell as its clearly not for looks (who sees them anyways?) and are cheaper than replacing the stuff its protecting. Perhaps we need an additional forum catagory..."How to convince the better half?"d-rap said:Now I'm making the same argument about my bumpers, winch, underbody skids, compressor, axe, hi-lift, SL, etc. And she ain't exactly buying it!
