Peer Pressure came with a set of 32×11.5R15 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains, and they are very, very nice tires. However, they’re also noisy as hell and I’d like to have something better suited for everyday driving mounted in their place, so I thought I’d do some preliminary pricing. The first step was to convert the US size to metric, and I found this calculator which translates to 292/74R15, something I haven’t been able to find in mixed-use tires—rounding up to 295/75R15.

Yokohama Geolander A/TS 32×11.5R15 $126 ea. This is probably the friendliest tread pattern of the three, and the cheapest.
Dunlop Mud Rover 32×11.5R15 $153 ea. This is still a pretty aggressive looking tread pattern.
BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO 32×11.5R15 $155 ea. This looks to be a less aggressive, more road-friendly tread pattern.

FYI, the Mud Terrains I’ve got on now list for about $179 each.

  1. For what it’s worth, I love BFG A/T’s. The best tire I’ve ever used. I have a set of 31″ in the garage on Scout rims if you want to try them out before buying.

    Thanks! I’ll take you up on that. I’m curious to see what 31’s look and feel like. I had Dunlops on my old scout but they were on stock rims on a stock suspension.

  3. OK, well now those BFGs are on my brother’s Scout, but I’m sure that I could steal it from him so you can try the tires on yours.
