BF Goodrich Tires, who runs them?

I have another post on tire replacement and got some good answers, thank you.
But I really want to know about those of you who have BF Goodrich tires and how you like or dislike them.
I may buy a set for my pickup if all is good.
Not knowing, do they make tires for our RV's??
Signed, almost a former Toyo Fan.

Ford service rep talked me into a set of BFG's on my 2015 Focus. He had the same car and swore by them. I bought a set and swore at them.

I had a set of Toyo Open Countries on my Ram 3500 SRW and hated them. I go elk hunting here in Colorado in the winter and they sucked. Worst tires I have ever ran. So when I was due for tires I replaced them with a set of BFG KM3's. So far they have performed good in the hills. I did notice I lost a couple of lugs pulling my camper down a long rocky road with some step climbs. This will be my first winter with them.
I ran two sets of the original BFG M/T's on a Jeep I had years ago and got really good mileage out of them. But hard to compare a lite Jeep with a heavy truck.

Ran some BFG AT's on an old Dodge van years ago, and they were great. I tried the KO2's on my '04 3500 CC DRW and have not been happy with the mileage / wear.

Can't speak to MH size BFG tires, but I ran them on my Chevy dually since Oem tires wore out.

When I was deciding on which tires were the most bang for my buck, I began looking at delivery truck tires. UPS local delivery trucks were all running BFG tires. So, I figured if the UPS accountants had calculated BFG TA commercial tires gave them the best bang for the buck, so should I.
I only bought 2 sets of 6 tires until I sold that truck with 160,000 miles on the clock. Each set of BFG TA commercial tires gave me approx. 60,000 miles of towing a 40' 5er and farm use.


I think BFG tires are part of Michelin tire company.

I had had a set of 12R22.5 run for 8 years before replaced. They were good tires although not as good as Bridgestone in that size.

We had a set of BFG tires on our motorhome a few years back. They were great. The tire guy placed the new BFG next to a new Michelin and they were identical and even made at the same factory.

Hmm. Interesting answers gang.
Keep them coming if you have them.
BFG's similar to Michelin and look the same. Light bulb goes on.
I'd probably run Michelin on my truck but not the MH. Too much sidewall flex from what I have read here.
Thank you forum.

Michelin Tire knows all about sidewall cracking and has published why it happens. To state it short, lack of use and proper care causes sidewall cracking.
Ref: https://michelinb2b.com/wps/b2bconte...s_Brochure.pdf

(pg 8)


As air pressure is decreased, sidewall flex increases.

Agree. Michelin's manual will tell you a certain amount cracking sidewalls are okay...maybe for them, but not for me.

We had Michelins on our 40' MH for 8 yr. with no issues. As full-timers, put a lot of miles on them and served us well in the mountains and on up to Alaska.

I had BFG mud terrain KM2 on my old SUV. I loved them for Michigan, and did a little off roading also. Lasted 45,000 miles. Great tires, other than being loud like any mud tire would be.

For normal road tires, no idea. Sorry

I currently run an all-terrain "General" brand tire and they are great.

For those noticing similarities between Michelins and BFG's, it's because Michelin owns BFG these days.

I've never been impressed by Michelins and consider them overpriced. Mostly because their sidewall cracking issues. They can say what they want, but when you run Toyos, Generals, whatever completely other brand in the same environment and they DON'T crack....
