Comments Decent tires for the money. My '05 explorer had the same BFGoodrich rugged trail tires when I bought it new in '05. I was happy with their all around performance, I got 40K miles out of them and could've got another 5-8K miles on them if the time frame was from spring until fall. With winter approching and needing the vehicle to get in and out through unplowed snow, I chose to replaced them early.
