    I run nothing but BFGs and I have never found this to be the case. I personally think they are some of the best A/T on the market. I easily get 60K out of a set and they are great off road.

      The Nittos or BFG's?

        Nitro ridge grapplers. Same tires I’ve got on my 150, had on my Tacoma, last f150, put a set on my brothers 4Runner pro. They’re awesome tires.

          and what are you running them on?

          my son used to run nothing but the BFG AT but could only get about 25k miles out of a set with normal rotation but that was on a 3/4 ton Dodge Cummins

            Had wear issues on an F150 with BFG. Switched to Toyo / Nitto and could get about 15k more miles with no increased noise. Have had Nittos on my F250 and get about 40k out of them.

              Ya I used BFG's for years and worked them pretty hard on the ranch etc lots of rocks but never got more than about 1 year out of them. I finally switched over to some coopers by recommendation and the jury is still out only have about 10k miles on them so we will see. Spent alot of money on the other tires wish I would have made a move sooner. I do like their look though. I think they might be fine for city driving.

                You’ll have to keep us posted on the progress of the mods and maybe you’ll even prove to Aric Toyotas can last when you don’t beat the p*$$ out of them.
                I beat the p*SS out of mine with no issues.

                160k and still going strong

                  I was ready to pull the trigger on an F150 5.0 right up until my brother had to have his entire fuel system replaced on his 2015 due to water ingestion.

                  Coming from the overland world the drivetrain on the Tundra is basically lifted right from the 200 series Land Cruiser which is about as bullet proof as it gets; so I certainly hope it proves to be.

                  I definitely will keep everyone posted on the mods. The comments on the KO2s has me reconsidering. I ran Cooper Discovery AT3 on my rovers and I was always very happy with how those wore.

                    I mean... any make or model can injest water. Has nothing to do with the vehicle, but rather bad gas.

                    • A/T KO2s are a rough ride. Really stiff sidewalls

                        It wasn't a bad gas situation rather the capless filler. He ran the truck through a touchless car wash on the way home from work, parked the truck overnight and during that time froze and burst several parts in the fuel system. His dealer said that they had seen it a couple of times over the years.

                          I can’t see that much water getting in there that way with a touchless.

                          Now, maybe those few people had some enemies that no one knew about?[emoji3166], sounds more like it. Because to get it to freeze and break stuff...seems impossible. You would have to have a lot of water in it...one, would think.

                            Quite interesting. I’ve had 3 F150s, my dad has had 1, and I have an 18 fusion all with capless fillers and I’ve never ran across that.

                                Sidestepping your sarcasm, it’s highly improbable The cap less filler is a widespread issue. Another thing to think about, is fords notoriously bad dealership experience, and they like to blame anything.

                                Only dealer experience worse than ford, is Toyota. Scummiest places on planet eart
