Great write up, made my job alot easier.
30k miles? I would expect no less than 45k easy. Is that an E or D rated version you are running? They are the number 1 mounted tire, so you can't go wrong either way.I have not been on line in a while. Glad the post is still helping people. At 30,000 miles I have worn out my BFG and will be purchasing another set. I wish I would have gotten more mileage out of $1550 tires. The tires are right next to bald and what surprises me is they still ride and drive great. I have had tires in the past that I felt had 15,000 miles left in them and had to take them off as I could not keep the vehicle on the road.
I was hopping for close to 45,000. However, I know my driving habits on the mountain roads I drive and considering me in the equation I guess 30,000 is not the end of the world. The tires are E-rated and I like the looks and the performance for what they are designed to do. The problem is when I drive my truck as if I am in my 1972 Datsun 240Z and grind the front tires off.30k miles? I would expect no less than 45k easy. Is that an E or D rated version you are running?

Not sure if this helps or not since mine is a 12' but I run 295/65r18's and mine are nowhere near rubbing...........It will be close but I bet (5 bucks) you will be fine.I already bought some 295/70/18 Trails and I hope I didn't screw myself! Any feedback would be awesome. I can get some pics if it makes it easier.
