I need new tires for my truck and I can't decided which tires I should get. I can get either the BFG A/Ts or the Pro Comp Xtreme A/Ts for roughly the same price. I have BFG A/Ts on my truck right now and have had good luck with them. The Pro Comps are a directional tire, but also come with a 40k prorated warranty. I don't do any wheelin with my truck, I just need a tire that has good road manners, does well in the snow, and will last long. Any thoughts or opinions on either tire? I know the BFGs are a good tire, how do the Pro Comps compare?

Thanks

I have ran both of those tires. I would go with the BFG as they wear OK, good road manners, and great in snow. If you did more wheeling off road, I would say go with the pro comps (awesome trail tire) I still run them under my 79 bronco. You didnt mention any heavy towing though..............

I run the PRO COMPs 35x12.5x18 with great results so far. I rotate them at my oil changes, they aren't too loud on the road, the wide open tread pattern and the load rating is what I want in this size tire. I have the fronts at 60 PSI and the rears at 55 PSI.

I have never ran the Pro Comps but i can tell ya i wasn't to impressed with the BFG's I had. they wore good but traction sucked with them.

What size tire are you wanting? Best tire I have ever ran was a Bridgestone Revo. And would have ran them this time if they made them in a 35x12.50 so im running Yokohama Geolander A/T's now and they are damn good tires and the 2nd best of tires I have had.

I don't do any heavy towing, just a small atv trailer here and there. I am looking to get 315/75/16s.

8nout, how do the pro comps compare to the BFGs with regards to road manners and thread life?

IMHO the tread life seemed to be the same but I liked the road manners of the BFG. They seemed to ride a little smoother on the road and stop a little qwicker in the snow.

Good point Countryboyrob. I know this is a little off topic as the origional ? was "BFGs are a good tire, how do the Pro Comps compare?" Personally I run goodyear at extreme (315/70/17) for everyday driving/ tow purpose. but on the fun weekends I run 37" military wrangler M/T
In the end I guess its personel pref.:shrug:

If you like the BFG tread check out the General Grabber, seem to run as good or better for some & are cheaper.

Thanks for your opinions guys, I am going to try the Pro Comps and see how they hold up. I rarely get 40k miles out of tires so it should be interesting to see if the Pro Comps last that long.

My buddy runs the pro comps, he got 45k out of his, and there's still probably a little under quarter tread left. They were 37's though, dunno if that makes a difference.

I think the pro-comps have a 40,000 mile warranty, but I may be wrong...


I have 35" Xtreme A/T's and I love them. I had the BFG's on my last truck, they were OK, I will for sure buy the Procomps again when it is time.
