Re: Time for Tires '02 F250
I run BFG AT TAs and I think they are a great tire. I had fantastic
traction in the snow and I don't have any complaints about any other
conditions. I only put them on last September so I can't vouch for
tread wear. They are a lot quieter than I thought they would be on the
highway, quiet enough to have a conversation without yelling.
I recommend them and I would buy them again.
