Tire question
 
Anyone ever run BFG Long Trail tires? Anything good or bad to say about them? I use my jeep approximately 90% on road. Thanks in advance.

They're basically a street only tire. I'd still go with the Standard All-Terrain. You'll get good wear, good traction, and still be able to go off-roading in them. The long trail is for highway use, I don't even consider it in the same class.

That was the gist of the information I had gathered. There' s a guy out here selling 4 31" long trails for $300.
I need new tires soon, and want to go bigger. Just thought I could use these as a temporary step up until I can afford lift, gears, etc.
Thanks,
Jake

Long Trails are a disgrace to the BFG name. They are terrorible in the snow, my dads 4x4 Tahoe has more trouble getting up the driveway than my RX-7 did (with snow tires), I'm not exaggerating. I can't think of a word harsh enough to discribe them off pavement.
On road they are wisper quiet and ride soft...waaaay too soft. It may not be as big of an issue with a little Jeep, but at even moderate speeds the tires lean over on the side wall and squeal like crazy.

Hit? Them tires rub. Rubbin's off roadin.
