Anyone have wearing issues with the new BFG's? I bought a new set about a month ago and after buying them noticed quite a bit of bad reviews on tirerack I believe (can't remember which site) where guys where saying they wore them out in 20k-30k miles. Several reviews were talking about the tires being soft and not lasting like the older KO's. Anyone experienced this?

I’m in the same boat...squeezed 50k out of my KO and at 25k on my KO2. I should replace them around 35-40k vs running to 50k. They were bald.

Ditto. I’ve got about 20k on mine and the tread looks great going into the snow season. I’ll easily get another 15-20k.

Just to share more info... At my service today they said I had 5/16 left on these tires and I now have 26k on them. I may get 32-33k max but I better go shopping before Winter.

While I really appreciate these tires performance in snow and rain I may have to look elsewhere do to the longevity.

So my Tundralina just turned 30 (thousand miles) this week and she needed some new shoes already. The stock Michelin AT2's were just about bare. I do drive a little rough, but not enough to plow through a set of rubbers like that. I was told at my 30k maintenance that they needed to be changed. So asked what they had in stock and it was just more trash. I decided to go with the KO2's and had them order the tires which would be installed the next day. I had asked about a mileage warranty on the Michelins and of course they told me there was nothing. I would be stuck putting out the $1200 to buy, mount, balance and align the new KO2s. So i went home and later that night decided to check the Michelin site for those AT2's. Turns out they offer a 60k mile warranty on them. After talking to Michelin for a bout 20 minutes in the chat, they said that since the tires only lasted 30k and they were covered for 60k, they would honor a warranty claim. They started the claim and I had it finished at the dealership the next day. I only had to cover 44% of the new tire cost because their pro-rated offer was good for Michelin, BFGoodrich or Uniroyal tires. Long story short, I paid $400 for new KO2's. The total was $645 out of pocket for me because I had to cover the mount, balance, and alignment myself. Well worth my time to ask the question. Just thought I would share the story and maybe help someone save some $$$ if you are in the same boat.

I have a copy of the chat with Michelin if anyone wants to see how it went down.

Also, they look great on the truck and it rides more like a truck now than like a minivan. The road noise that some have mentioned is nonexistent on mine. Some Hot Shine and wheel cleaning had it lookin sharp.
