BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
February 08, 2013

I have been waiting for a good snow before rating these tires, and I just found Nemo! But seriously, these BFGs were an upgrade to my spent OEM Goodyears, which were finished after 20k.
Road noise is more significant than the OEMs but not enough to annoy.
Wet traction is great. Even with an empty bed, I have to really put my foot down to break traction on wet roads.
In the snow, these tires outperform the OEM Goodyear Wrangler AT by a mile. I don't know why other reviewers feel negatively about this tire's snow traction, but I had no trouble rescuing a taxicab tonight, stuck in about 6 of unplowed, wet snow. I felt as confident on these tires as I ever have since owning this Ram.
I have also been monitoring my fuel economy since installing these, and I have not seen any change, so I assume rolling resistance to be at least as good as the Wranglers.
