Re: BFG MT vs BFG AT\'s, time for new tires!
I have run the BFG MT over the long haul, and worn them out at about 55K on the TJ. They work very well when new, wear is good, we're still using one as a spare. When about 1/2 worn, however, they start to suck on the road, especially the wet pavement. I could catch 3rd gear easily, used to tick the wife off, but felt nice at 35 mph on pavement with the rear end in a slide. Brought me back to the days of horsepower.
For the mud, and general off-road use, the MT's really shine, I highly recommend them. I am also interested in the MT KO, I have heard it has similar traits to the AT KO (rim protection, siping the tread blocks, better corner edges), and will be interested to see what other mods they've made. Maybe the siping will help, it has to, because the MT, when 1/2 worn, absolutly sucks in the slush on the roads.
