Initial Review, 51,000 Miles on Tires
I have just over 51,000 miles on the BFG Long Trail Tour tires at this point. I can certainly get another 10-15k miles out of them before they hit the wear bars, but will replace them before winter as the tread depth is getting to low for snow. Compared to the OEM Continental ContiTrac SUV they are amazing, but the BFG's are a touch louder. The Conti's were just barely adequate and were out of round from day 1, but did last 81k miles before the wet traction became unsafe. The BFG's, as expected, reduced fuel economy by 1-1.5 mpg, but the handling improved exponentially. Dry traction is very good, wet traction is amazing and surprisingly snow/ice traction is pretty dang good. I drove through 20"+ of snow with them and decided to go to 2WD just to have some fun on the un-plowed back roads in WV. I could not believe they handled the snow almost as well BFG All-Terrains. In hard packed snow I could use near full throttle to accelerate from a stand still before spinning all 4 tires. I go to work regardless of the weather so they were well tested and I was truly surprised.
