Does anyone have BF Goodrich AT tires. They are really nice but we was just wondering if they are quite or if they make alot of noise. Thanks

Well here it is with these awesome tires

I have them....they are pretty quiet on the highway. They were an improvement over stock tires too. I have 285/75-16 on my truck. If you are looking at buying tires, go with at least the 265s...there will be no fitment problems and the ride should improve over stock.

the bfg's are a good tire but for the money there are better ones avalible for starters the toyo's are a hard one to beat but if you want a good one for the money check out the Mastercraft Courser A/T.. Mastercraft - Light Truck Tires

we usually go with Michelin LTX MS tires. They are awesome but the look kinda plain. So with stock rims what is the best size of tires to go with?

I would go with 265/75-16 if you do not want to trim or make any adjustment to your suspension in the front. You speedo might even be right on or barely affected.

They do, I have a friend that put them on his truck.....it looks more like a truck. I am kinda partial to the 285, but that does require some adjustment and trimming to make them fit even on stock rims.

I put the 285 75 16 BFG at's on my 07' Looks great and the ride is a bit better.
I did have to turn the t-bars up in the front. Also the BFG load range D's are rated to hold more lbs. per tire over the stock E's

hey diesel the 265-75R16 will fill the wheel well up real nice with out having to do any trimming but if you want the best 4X4 look go with the 285-75R16 but you'll have to turn the T/Bars up a bit and do some trimming.. if possible stay with a LR E(10ply)but if you don't plan on hauling much you can go with a LR D(8ply)..just some of my thoughts

Nothing at all. We went with the 265/75 size. It fills the fenders much better that I thought they would. They look great. I got some pictures that i need to post. I may get them on here tonight.

I had 285 bfg a/t's on my 2000 6.0 with stock rims. They are awsome tires, easy 50k tires! Not loud, and the 285's fit with no triming or rubbing.
