Default Better than Toyo?

Anyone running or familiar with the BFG Rugged Terrains? I'm looking at a set in P275/60R20 and am debating between them and the Toyo A/T's. I see a lot of good reviews on the Toyo. Just curios about the BFG. These look like the two best options for a P tire in that size. Trying to avoid the E range tires. Any feedback would be appreciated. The BFG KO2 looks good but at a D, it may be too harsh of a ride for my black tie commuter.

I have been a life long toyo fan since running my first set of toyo MT's, now have AT2's on my daily driver. Have had no issue in snow, ice, or rain. They have also been great so far in the sticky clay soil in these parts.

I briefly ran BFG AT/KO on my 2005 and was not impressed. They did not clean out well in mud and packed solid in snow. I sold them with 5k on them. The only tire worse was the cooper zeon LTZ, poor performance and little to no longevity.

Wife's old xterra came with the last gen BFG rugged terrain, they where OK.. slick in snow and ice and not so great tread life.

You cant go wrong with either tire. Id use the weight for the tie breaker. even a few lbs helps the milage

FYI, the thought that a load range E tire is rougher/harsher is a myth.

If you are truly wanting/needing a M+S tire, that tells me that you *might* end up off-road. The greater capacity of an E-rated tire will support the weight of your truck better and handle "difficult" situations much better. And if you ever load the truck (to tow or load the bed), the P tire can become dangerous.

When I got my '13 I swapped out for E rated tires after about 900 miles. The ride was more controlled, but definitely harsher or rougher. Rides like a Lincoln town car. The harsher ride comes from how much air one runs in the tires, not the tire itself.

Hopefully this will open some doors for you as far as choices. FWIW, even when I sold tires I was never a fan of BFG. There are better tires out there. The Toyos are awesome tires. The MT get real noisy though.
