Factory Generals had me sliding too much in the snow. They were pretty pathetic, but the BFG's I have now are right up there with them snow-wise.johnny1 said:I don't know why everyone thinks the factory Generals are so bad. It really depends on you usage. I have a 07 reg. cab Canyon 4x4 and I bought it to get by in the snow here in southeast Kansas in the winter and otherwise is is mostly on pavement. So for my usage they are just fine. If I did off roading in mud and hill climbing I'm sure I'd want something else.
Gotta second that one. Was trying to figure out what tires to get and went with the BFG TA's. The second week I was running them it was -30 and icy. They had the same effect of curling rocks on ice and were probably just as hard. These tires have the extreme weather rating but suck on ice, in cold weather, or on compact snow. In deep snow I find they don't clog and dig in pretty good and all other terrain are quite nice. As well, they wear really well and I was surprised with how quiet they were for the way more aggressive tread.coyote said:Don't go with the BFG TA K/O if you have cold weather or drive in the snow. They get hard and don't clear the snow.
I've got the Mud Terrains. Can't really compare directly as I've never seen the Xterrains in person, but the Mud's are pretty damn soft.sleeper_07 said:I have been looking at Pro Comp all terrains.
But I would like something that look real aggressive. Do you think the pro comp Mud Terrians are made of a soft rubber compound like the Xterrains???
I just had it done, but so far no bad qualities. The Generals I had siped started to lose chucks, but the Geolanders I had on my 1500 never had that issue. I think the Generals were too soft of a tire to be siped with the power we have.justplanecrazy said:I should take a video of me trying to stop on ice on my bfgs... kinda looks like the kids playing hockey when they coast down the rink. I might get them siped. Far better traction on ice and they last longer. Are you happy with your siping coyote? No change in road noise or handling other then better traction?
