I want to get a set of 295/75/r16 tires and I was looking at either the Bfgoodrich A/t or the Nitto Terra Grappler or the ProComp A/t...i heard that xtreme a/t are awsome...but they wont fit on my stock height 2500hd (im not cranking the t bars or installing a leveling kit)....but i got two questions....which one of these will wear the best and which one has the best load rating? I am often putting on alot of miles and am often hauling/towing heavy loads...

hmm...so it looks like procomp or nitto are the way to go? I have bridgestone Dueler A/t Revos now in 265/75/r16 and i love them...but they are an expensive tire and i go through tires too quick to get these expensive ones in 285

BFG A/t's are just as expensive as Revos. IMO, 295s are not the way to go on your truck if you put on alot of miles, don't want to lift and haul heavy.
The old saying "can't stuff 10lbs of sh!t in a 5lb bag." applies here.
Your factory rims are too narrow. The tires won't pop off, but at proper pressure, center of the tread will wear very quickly. (Been there, done that)
Truck is not tall enough, w/o cranking the bars or a lift, you'll have to trim the lower valace and possibly bumper and the tires will still rub at full lock on the inside.

Im going to get 285/75/r16 and im already gettin new rims....and 285 revos cost around 225 a tire and i can get bdgoodrich a/t for 135 each....so there is a huge tire price difference

the BFG KO doesn't wear that fast if you take care of them. I rarely see them wear quickly even with abuse (and I've installed probably hundreds of them). it's a great tire for pretty much anything.

the Terra Grappler is a pretty good tire for street use. they wear decent (little faster than the BFG), ride pretty good and balance out nice. if you don't wander off the pavement, they would be a good choice. if you wheel it a little, then get the BFG for the better sidewall and better traction.

I think that BFG All Terrain KO is an awesome tire. If you rotate corner to corner every oil change you will get plenty of miles out of them. I had a set on a 97 Powerstroke Ext Cab, Longbox 4x4 that lasted almost 80 thousand kilometers. Around 50 k miles.

I have the 285/75/16 Terra Grapplers on my 05 . You have to turn the torsion bars up or they will hit the valance . I have 29000 on them and probably will get another 15000 out of them. They are quiet and ride nice until you jack the air up to 50 to 60 PSI. But that can be said for any tire. My 2 sons have BFG All-Terrains on their trucks and they both love them. So I think you won't go wrong with either tire. Good Luck.

Also you can get either tire in load range E if you tow heavy loads.

Not really when u consider how fast the bfg s wear out
Sorry to hear about you bad experience but I have put 36,000 on mine and I sure they could do another 20,000 I should ad thats with normal driving, towing etc.

Just keep in mind if you go with a load range D instead of E With whatever tire you decide to go with, Be sure to be on a good rotation schedule for maximum tread life...

I was in the market a little while ago and went throught the samething. In fact i was looking at the same tires, Nitto, BFG, and Procomp. I had a set of BFG a/t on my 94 Dakota, side note i will never own a dodge again. I had the 5.2 v8 and it was seriously one of the most gutless things i have driven. That being said, it would lite the BFGs up with out hesitation if there was any moisture on the road. They wore pretty well and were great in the dirt but i didn't trust them in the rain. I was looking at the Nittos but heard countless stories of how they wore badly. Next up was the Pro comp a/t. I heard a ton of positive feedback from owners and they cost less to boot. If you want to go with one of those three Pro comp is the way i'd go. I was informed that Cooper tire made the tires for Pro comp but couldn't find out for sure. Anyway i was looking at some of the Cooper tires and settled on the Discoverer a/t. They have a 50,000 mile warranty and have great customer ratings. I decided to give them a try and I can honestly say that i'm very impressed. They are load range E ten ply tires and they only ran me 120 a tire. I picked them up at discount tire and have taken through the mud, dry trail, snow, rain, ice and slush. They have worked much better than any other tire i have used. I vote for the Cooper.

If i was you i would get the BFG! They are the best tire i have ever had. I have had alot of tires on my old truck and these have out lasted all the tires i have had in the past. I have about 45k on mine i think i could get at lest 10k if not more. But thats my 2 cents

Hope that helps ya some.

That's a heckuva deal on BFG A/Ts. :eek: Where can you find them for that price? The lowest I've seen at Discount Tire is around $174 per tire?

I like the looks of the 285s but had some bulges on my stock rims when I put them on my '02 GMC 2500HD....made me a little nervous. I cranked the t-bars on that truck about 5 turns and never had to trim any plastic.

If you can get BFG A/T KO's 295-75-16 Load Range E for $135/tire, jump all over it! I was just trying to get a set of A/T 265-70-17E and everyone wants $200+ per tire. Got 4wheel parts down to about $165/tire, but they don't know how to add (in my favor).Of course, those tires are on nationwide backorder, so I'm getting Procomps.

not sure if they are going to be more expensive or not but have you considered toyo open country AT's? they are a great riding, quiet tire that lasts a long time. they look almost the same as the nitto's but thankfully dont have those gay lightning bolts on the sides, i hate those stupid lightning bolts! otherwise id reccommend the BFG's, i have them in 285/75/16 on my winter rims and they are an awesome tire, havent put too many miles on them to comment on tread wear but if you drive in snow at all i think they are head and shoulders above any of those other tires you listed.
