    2 tires that I’ve loved to have on my truck…

    #1. General Grabber AT2
    #2 BFGoodrich All-Terrain AT/KO

    I loved the Generals!!! They are cheaper than the BFG’s (by about $120 total), can be had as a load range E (like you really need one that heavy), pre-drilled for studs if you want to run them, have good handling characteristics, and had a very good mileage life.

    I have the BFG’s now, also a good tire. I’m running a load range D ( a C range tire is available).

    I get the same fuel economy, and look to be getting a similar life out of them so far. I would be running the Generals on my truck right now if they weren’t on back order (and I was hurtin for tires pretty bad).

    The generals were great in the mud/snow. They have a tiny rib inside the tread that helps with keeping ‘stuff’ from sticking between the lugs. The BFGs are missing this little feature.

    Your question creates an oxymoron – You either buy tires for off road performance OR you buy tires with decent road life expectancy and quiet ride characteristics … and never the twain shall meet!
