cons:
bias ply tires will gain a flat spot if sitting for any period of time (yes overnight is a period of time)
I have never been able to have a bias ply tire properly balanced... perhaps using dynabeads would solve this problem

pros:
flat spot goes away after ~ 10 min of driving...
mud tires are difficult to balance whether they are bias ply or radial, so not really a con to bias specifically
punctur resistant... I ran over a nail in columbus with my LTB's, and could hear air coming out from around the nail... I pulled the nail out and that tire never leaked again... (5000 miles later, no problems)
great offroad!

I'll sum it up by saying you don't realize how spoiled you are by radial tires.
