BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A Tire Review & Rating
Have you been looking for a truck/SUV tire that combines smooth driving on the highway with one that will also perform well on any type off-road terrain? The BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A is engineered to do just that.
This all-terrain model from BFG uses the on-road elements from the Long Trail T/A Tour to go with the proven off-road capabilities of the All Terrain T/A KO. The rugged attractive tread design adds to the looks of all types of pickups and SUV’s, while the aggressive tread pattern balances the needs of those requiring more versatility in their tires.
On-road driving comfort is enhanced through two polyester and single strand beads that provide a smooth ride at highway speeds. Computer optimized tread elements minimize road noise, which is immediately noticeable as you first drive on this tire.
Two deep circumferential grooves, multiple lateral grooves and unique siping around the tread evacuate water from under the tire and enhance wet surface grip, as well as reducing the risk of hydroplaning.
The wrap-around shoulder block design provides added traction on loose dirt, mud, sand gravel when you take the tire off-road. Keeping the tire clean and free from rocks and mud is made easier with the smaller tread cleaning bars in the shoulder grooves, which is something we have often heard other drivers talk about in reviews as well.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts and BFGoodrich’s exclusive Equal Tension Containment System that reinforces the belts with spirally wrapped nylon for added strength and stability. Sizes ranging from 15-20 inches are available, and LT sizes have a load range E rating. A 50,000 mile warranty is also included.
- Excellent on and off road performance
- Ride is smoother than most any tire in this class
- Tires are much quieter than you might think
- Treadwear is outstanding
- Nothing that really stands out
There are a number of tires that are good at being an on-road tire, and ones that are great at performing off-road, but finding one that can do both really well is difficult at best. That is not the case with the Rugged Terrain T/A. This tire is simply one of the top models in its class. Based upon all of the other reviews online, we are not alone in our assessment.
Overall… we can recommend this BFGoodrich model to anyone looking for reliable and long lasting on or off-road performance.
