BFG All Terrain ride
BFG All Terrain ride
I was wanting to install BFG All Terrain tires (285-70-17) on my 08 Unlimited and the Tire store owner warns me that is too stiff of a tire being 8ply and I would not like the ride. I really like the look of the tire and do not want anything less aggressive or anything more aggressive. Just like that tire.
Does anybody have this tire on their unlimited? And how does it ride on the street?

I have 305/65/18's on my 07 unlimited with a Teraflex 3" lift and shocks, and they're 10 ply. Air pressure makes a big difference.
I don't have the BFGs on my jeep now but did have them on my YJ, Cherokee, and currently on my ram. I think they are great tires and ride very well. I never thought they were anything but fantastic.

I had the BFG All-Terrain t/a's on my XJ and loved them. Good ride, not too noisy, decent mileage and very good traction on all surfaces. I'll probably get them again when my Mud Terrain's wear out.
If you like the tire, get them. There's a fair chance the tire store owner is pushing you towards a tire with a bigger profit margin for him.

the bfg ats in 10 or 8 ply means you juct run less presure for normal driving

I had a set on my F250 that did ride a little stiff at the recommended 60PSI. Just lower the air pressure as others have suggested and it'll be fine.
Don't have them on my JK, but never had any complaints from them on my TJ, great all-around tire.

As a side note...I'm sure they make a compatable height tire in a 6 ply. It might not be the exact same, but it'll be close.
I have the 285-71-17 on my JK 2-door and love them. The only thing is that after going with the Black Diamond BB I wish I had a little larger tire....
I love the ride and enjoy the off road performance as well...
