Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
October 12, 2012

After researching for months and months, I had narrowed my tire choices down to two. The Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor and the BF Goodrich All Terrain K/O. The Goodyear's were a lot better priced than the BFG's and I really liked the sidewall design. However, I had heard from friends/co-workers that the Goodyear's balance out and ride nicely for the first 5,000 miles or so and then become very shaky and noisy from there on out. Although I know not to expect a perfectly quiet ride from aggressive treaded tires, I have a hard time tolerating excessive road noise and imbalance from a set of very, very expensive tires. So, I started looking into the BFG's more closely. I LOVE the fat, white letter walls...always have. I had a set of these on my '95 Cherokee and really enjoyed them. Although at the time, the Goodyear's were $150 cheaper, I decided to go with the BFG's. Boy am I glad about my decision! My 2009 Ford Ranger FX4 originally came with P255/70/R16 tires, but I wanted to upgrade to a larger tire to fill the wheel wells. I decided to go with a LT 265/75/R16. I mounted and balanced them at the car dealership where I work. They all balanced out with less than 2.00 oz of weight. After putting them on the truck for the first time, I couldn't help but grin. They look absolutely stunning. The truck sits higher, and has a very aggressive stance. Even though it's a LT tire, the truck rides only a slight bit rougher, but still very tolerable. The road noise is nearly non-existent, only a slight (almost peaceful haha) hum from the fresh rubber. I am very satisfied with my purchase and plan to keep writing reviews throughout the life of the tire. I hope to get many miles out of these tires! I hope this helps any of you who are thinking about getting a set of these....Do it!!!
