considering these in a 285 65 20 ( 35X11.25) , i hear they last forever, anyone have any experience? seem to fit what i want in a tire best. my coopers at 16000 kms are about half way, not impressed at all.

I had a set on my '03, lasted about 35K miles. If you are planning on towing, make sure you get 10 ply's. I had 8 ply, and 3 of the 4 sidewalls bubbles and eventually blew. I haven't towed on my '12 yet, I plan on upgrading to 10 ply before I do.

Guy I work with has a 2008 and was having trouble with the sidewalls in his BFG A/T tires. One blew out and got a bubble on another one. I was asking Discout Tire about this problem and they said that BFG has addressed the problem and that the new BFG A/T KO2 does not have this problem. Don't know anyone that has them, just what they said at Discount. My wife's Jeep has had BFG A/T on it for three years now with no problems, but Jeeps are pretty light, too. Buddies truck is a 2500 and he works it hard.

Agree! From what I have been told, from the "Experts", between towing and the truck itself that tires have a short life. Add to that, compound has a lot to do with tire life.

10 ply tires are usually a harder compound too and should last longer compared to 8 ply.

-----------------------------------------

Actual 10 ply, 10 ply rating...it can get confusing
...and some 10 ply rating only have 2 ply sidewalls .


on making a choice that suits your requirements .

ya, it does get confusing lol My current (load range D)8 ply rating tires have the same load rating in pounds as my old (load range E) 10 ply rating tires. The old ones max load rating was at 80 psi new ones are 65 psi. I figured, as long as they had the same rating in pounds, that a bigger tire running lower psi should ride better, and they do
