I think the ATZ by Mickey Thompson looks the best but I don't have them yet still waiting for my BFGs to go bye-bye

I've run BFG's for as long as I can remember, never tried any other tires, and never had any issues with the BFG at's.

Nitto Terra Grappler's. I had 325/65R18's on my lifted Avalanche and they were the best tire I ever owned. Had over 40K before I sold it and still had over 10K left. Wore great, handled great, and were quiet on the road.

I have a poll going on this. The BFG All-Terrain KO's are winning hands down by a bunch. They have a very good rating over at tirerack.com. Also Goodyear Wrangler Silen Armor, the Firestone Destination A/T and the Pirelli Scorpion ATR.

I have stated in few post my favorites. I currently have the Mickey Thompson ATZ and have run the Dick Cepek FC-II. I like both tires but will probably go back to the Dick Cepek when the ATZs wear out because I like the way the wore and they preformed better for me. Good Luck!

I'm really happy with the BFG's I just bought. They are quite, contrary to popular belief, they have a ton of snow traction, even with the E range tire and if maintaned they have great wear. This is the first E range BFG AT I've ever bought but they look virturally identical to the C and D range tire with only slightly less sipping in the tread blocks. I don't beat on my truck so maybe there are others with varying opinions based on extreme use but IF YOU DONT KEEP UP ON TIRE ROTATION DONT BUY THIS TIRE.

Here are a few pics of my new BFG AT's E range

BFG all terrain T/A KO is a great tire, have 265/75/R16s now on 16x8 rims. Have had many friends with this style tire of various sizes on all sorts of rigs, big and small. Have never heard a bad thing. If you are completely off road, there are more aggressive tires out there, but if you are like most of us and want something to get you in and out of the woods, mountains, etc. but also drive on the pavement with them, these are the best I've found. They are aggressive enough for anything I should be doing in a 3/4ton crew cab 4x4 that is pretty much stock.

Also, the 265/75/R16's in the T/A KO are load range D for 3042 lbs at 65 psi. They offer E range for 3415 lbs at 80psi, but they are not M+S rated for mud and snow. I.E. they do not technically qualify as "snow tires" in most states that require "snow tires" on passenger cars/trucks when commercial chain laws are in force for big rigs/buses. However for my rig with a GVWR of about 9200lbs and assuming I ever had it loaded down to that and was pulling a fifth wheel with a 1000 lb hitch load (I would still not be overloading the rear tires in D range of the T/A KO's)
