Very nice.

How do those tires rate for driving and towing? I guess, what is the life like? My BFG's haven't lasted me anything close to there warranty and I am going with something else next.

load range E. People are getting 50-60k out of these things. I did my homework before I made the purchase.

Very nice.

They look great and by the sounds of what you say work even better.

They are quite{Confused} I guess the only ones I have driven have been bigger, but they were noisy bitches....I was thinking about getting them until I drove a couple others trucks.
Are they really quite, or just quite compared to other mud terrains?

they are quiet for what they are. I noticed a slight hum over the street tires that were on it.

I like those {Grin} even though my dmax is only a 2 wheel drive I wanna put a more aggressive tire on partly due to the fact it will need all the help in the traction department if I get in a shitty situation and two just for the longgevity of the tires the street super soft tires that were brand new on my truck when I got it are wearing out fast I bet I barely get 20k out of them but they are cheapy soft tires too cant expect too much I guess..... Cheeks what do those tires run a piece?

195 isnt cheap but its not bad expecially if people are getting 50-60k out of them, for the mileage Id say thats a better deal than most tires

Just FYI, the actual weight rating on the tire is more important that the load rating.
For example, my 305/60r20 toyo's were load range E with a wieght rating of 3150lbs at 65 psi.
My 315/70r17 bfg's are load range D with a wieght rating of 3250lbs at 50psi. It may only be an 8ply tire, but is rated for more wieght than the 10 ply toyos.

Just in case anyone cares {Kiss}
