I bought the BFG 265/75/16 All Terrain KO's hoping they would work well. They look great but that is about all I have to say about them. With 65 psi in them on 8 inch wheels they wore heavily on the outside edges. Before someone says alignment, we had a Hunter 411 where I worked. In the rain they would break loose very easily and in the snow was down right scary. After 24K miles they needed to be replaced. They did seem to do well on dirt roads.
On my 01 Burb, I just put on a set of 265/75/16 Revo's E load range on the stock wheels, after getting 40K out of the stock crappy Firestone tires. I have only driven it maybe 40 miles, but I was impressed with the wet weather traction. Off a stop light full throttle it spun both tires for about 10 feet then hooked up and off it went. Pushing it hard around a corner waiting for it to come out sidewayz it took more throttle than in the past to get the rear to kick out. Beyond that I can not comment as they are new to me. I did tons of research trying to find what was going to work for me. Of course I purchased these on other people recommendations, as they had the highest recommendation.
I did much of my research on a couple of RV websites as no-one puts as much milage on a set of tires as a long haul traveler, this website and the Tire Rack's customer rating.

I have the BFG 285's on my Z71 and the 305's on my HD, and while not hauling a load; 35 is proving to be the best psi on both vehicles. The HD has about 19K on this set of BFG's and the wear has been nice and even.
I vote for BFG's, but I have mine siped to improve traction on wet roads. Next month I will be putting BFG 315's on my Ford (in combonation with a 4" lift)

It would also be interesting to know what air pressure folks run. I run 38 in the front and 35 in the rear and they seem to be wearing very even at 12K miles. I read someplace that the extended cab is almost perfectly balanced front and rear at 55/45.

My current tire pressure is 65 on the front and 50 in the rear. I kick the rear tire pressure up depending on what I am towing.
