I was considering upgrading my OEM Rugged Trails and was tossing around a couple of ideas. The X sees quite a few highway miles each week but also finds its way into the backcountry for camping/mtn. biking trips so I figured a road-friendly All Terrain tire would fit the bill. Of the following tires, which one would be a crowd favorite. I was planning on staying w/ the OEM size of 265/75/16.

-- BFG All Terrain TA/KO
-- Nitto All Terrain Terra Grappler
-- ProComp XTreme All Terrain

Thanks for any input.

It's hard to go wrong with the BFGs. I had them on my Wrangler for 65,000 miles, and they still had tread life left. I went to buy new tires, and got my X with them...

I have run the BFG KO's for over 15 years on various rigs and they have good tread life, are reasonably quiet and take a beating off road. I run them on my X because we have quite a few rock gardens here in the Sierra's and they take the punishment without complaint.

That being said, if you do not plan on fairly heavy offroad use I really like the Bridgestone AT REVOS as more leaning toward street use. I have these on my 03 4runner and they are a vastly superior street tire but still can hold their own off road.

I am running the BFG AT KO's, but i think that pro comp Xterrains have the most agressive look (thats why i have one as a spare).
You cant go wrong with BFG, but why be like everyone else?

pro comp at tire comes with a 50000 mile tread wear warrantee, Ive had two set of at's and now run a set of Xterrains. If you can wait - 4wheelparts hes a special buy three get one free with free shipping every march. Hard to beat that deal.

I have the Nittos and have had the bfg's and both are great tires. I feel that the Nitto's are a much better for the Money. The Nitto's to me are much better in the sand & mud and alot smoother on the road. The BFG's are a bit tougher with a better impact resistance for hitting rocks & curbs but they are heavier and stiffer. I've had the Nitto's for about 23,000 miles with 3/4 tread left and I will never pay 50 - 75$ more for a name again after all Nitto's are made by Toyo and will start being made in the USA in Georgia I believe.

I'm running the XTerrains too. I like them so far. You do realize they are directional though, don't you? Probably not the best choice for a spare.

Can you post a couple of pictures, please?

Thanks for all the input. BFGs definitely look like the crowd favorite here on the board. There's a store in Chantilly, VA. called Trick Trucks that carry all 3 brands so I might make a trip there to see the tread patterns of all three side by side to see what fits my needs the best w/o breaking the bank.

Thanks again.

Also might look at Dick Cepek Radial FCIIs they are a pretty aggresive tire that seem to do very well on both street and dirt. Plus a little bit cheaper then the BFGs.

Yup, that has already been covered in another post somewhere. it will only be used for emergency use. If i get a flat, all the spare will do would be to drive me to get another tire.

Take a look at the Kumho Road Venture AT KL-78. I have done some checking and I hear great reports from people who use Kumhos.

My wife had Michelins on her Honda and I replaced them with equivalent Kumhos mainly becuase of the price. They have been a good tire. I haven't heard a bad thing about the Kumhos yet.
