BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A
Initial Review: 50,000 miles on tires
January 15, 2014

I have owned 2 trucks with this tire, both came as standard equipment. The only time this tire grips well is in the rain. Never had hydro planing, never had the rear tires break loose (have a posi rear end). This is all I can say that's good.

I have had highway radial tires bite into snow better than this tire. The tread refuses to clean out snow, and turns into a big snowball. And mud? Seriously? Same thing. Might as well have completely bald tires. Traction on dry pavement is surprisingly poor. Even with moderate throttle, the Hemi engine will make them both squeal and complain (remember I said both trucks had a limited slip rear end). To call these tires all terrain is a joke. I will say I have never had balance problems or failures of any kind. They are good in the rain, period.
