Have you seen any mpg decrease with these as opposed to the oem's/highway tires?

BFGs are way too expensive. I went with a set of Falken Wild Peaks and love them. Aggressive look, E range tire, were $500 cheaper than BFGs, have a wide range of sizes.

Firestone Destination SE2 has been rated very high. I have the 265 70R16 on our Tahoe and they ride well and quiet. they do make them in a 75R16

I'm part of a Goodyear dealership, and I can say the silent armor lives up to its price. Very good tires and very quiet. Traction is amazing, wear is awesome, but they aren't cheap

I save my pennies and buy nothing but Michelin for suburbans, so I cannot comment on any other truck tire

but, I do see a lot of BFG A/T's on the road

I also had great luck with the 35" BFG A/T's on my old Land Cruiser 80 series.

Just put these on my sisters Land Cruiser and like them. Little more aggresive than the michelin, still quiet and a lot cheaper.

Another fan here for Nitto Terra Grappler A/T's. Good wear, not overly loud, good traction, and decently priced.

I ran BFG AT KO's for years but have switched to General AT2's. Same performance in the mud and snow. Same never hydroplane like any Goodyear truck tire I have ever run. Better performance on icy roads. And considerably better pricing (especially from me to TT members).
