There's a lot of good info in this post here;tbrown said:What would you guys go with? I like the BFG's but I've read good things about the revo's plus they're cheaper! Any thoughts?
I've had my Revo's for several months now, and I absolutely love 'em. They're quiet and ride great, and excel in wet conditions. I've had the opportunity to take them off-road a handful of times, primarily milder rock crawling (32's on 2" of lift, so nothing too extreme), and they performed well beyond my expectations. Whereas some guys were spinning their way up rocks, sliding and such, the Revo's maintained traction and only slipped/spun when I wanted 'em to. In regard to their performance in mud, one park I went to had a mud pit. A couple rigs with mud terrains went thru, each with a considerable amount of difficulty, while the guy on Revo's had no problems whatsoever. Now, that's not to say they will always perform so well in muddy conditions, but I was definitely impressed with their performance that day.tbrown said:What would you guys go with?

Breathegood said:I've had both tires and both are great. Having said that, my vote is for the REVO. I'm on my first set at about 22K and the tread still looks like new (I do keep the spare in the rotation though). They handle better in winter driving condions, wet roads, and are noticably quieter. I've not had any problems with traction off road, but I don't think the BFG would have either. The only complaints I have with the REVO are it's conservative looks compare to the BFG, and it is a considerably heavier tire given the same size. If you want to save a few tenths of cents on gas, or spin them up a little faster the BFG might be a better choice.

Here's a couple pics of the 265/75/16 Revo's on my truck.03trdblack said:Do you have any pictures of the Revo's on your ride? I would like to see them on a Tacoma in your size.
