There are better tires out there in that price range. Not sure why youd repeat buying them if you only got that much mileage out of them.
I love the looks and performance of the tire I just wish they would last longer. I know how hard I am on tires so 30,000 is tolerable. The biggest issue is size. I could down size to a smaller tire but there are only two tires in 285-65-20 size. So, unless I get a great deal on a set of 275-65-20 I will buy the same tire.There are better tires out there in that price range.

That is part of what I was trying to point out. BFG has different tred compounds. The Mountain/Snowflake branded tires are a soft tred compound. The tires without the Mountain/Snowflake emblem are a very hard compound designed for desert use they are really bad in snow and ice. However, they last a long time. Mine worked great in snow and ice but the soft tred compounds compromise is decreased longevity.I had BFG A/T'S on my tundra for a winter. They were absolutely horrible in every winter condition, they were loud, and wore down alot in the low miles they were on the truck.
I sold them and bought new tires. Hated the bfgs.
Back ten years ago had them on my Tacoma and they were awesome, so I don't get it.
I think you are right about the tire pressure issue. There is slightly more tread in the middle then the edges. I have purposely run the tires down at 34 psi in an attempt to gain a little softer ride out of an E-rated tire on a 1/2 ton truck. My issues are snow/ice and off/road, most miles are on the highway that may have ice on it 6 mo. a year. They are an A/T which means compromise and I know that. I just have not found a better A/T and I have run most of them on my last two Toyota s.BFG A/T's are great tires. I've run 5 sets, all on full size trucks and a Tahoe. Every one of them I have gotten well over 50,000 miles out of them, one I got damn near 80,000 (on an F250 of all vehicles!).
I think the issue is that a lot of people run them at low tire pressure, and also some getting the softer tire. I always ran them at higher pressure and gotten great results out of them. They do suck in heavy mud, but if you're a highway guy that spends his time off road on the weekends or in the oilfield like I do, they get the job done. If you spend a lot of time in the mud, get a mud grip!!!
