All that I can say to your statement is B S
How often do you read on this forum( or any other) about the poor performance of BFG's?
The original & still the best ,whether AT's or MT's. Done allright by me over the years, & yes I've given them a fair hiding at times.
Would not consider anything else.

BIL just changed his BFG MT's @ 80k. Still had a little bit left but with winter here....
I think the KO's wear as good as the old design. Mine are 40k old and look to be about 1/2 worn.

Last set of BFG A/T on my GU patrol lasted 95000km before I replaced them.
Recently put a new set on, and they're wearing well.

If you are wearing thin one or the other edge then you have an alignment balance problems....wearing thin of both edges then I suggest that you pressure gauge is catcus....and this pattern of wear suggest that your pressure is too LOW. Pressure too HIGH on the other hand usually manifests itself with wearing out the bit in the middle faster than the edges.

dj may have been responding to a previous question. However while I'm here; 53,000K on my BFG AT's and they are better than 60%. I did notice some abnormal wear when I was fiddling to get the right spring/shock settings. I reckon anyone with incorrectly tuned aftermarket suspension would reduce life of tyres by 50%, any brand.
