Re: New Sneakers...
I have been a BFG fan in the past but I had to go with the Toyo's this time around. No new noticeable noise with the new tires. But the howl of the diesel engine might cover that up. The Toyo Open Country M/T's are E class rated, as opposed to the BFG's being D's, but I am not sure about any weight stuff on them. I'm sure you could find that on their site.
