My vote is neither - go with the Falken Wildpeak ATW/3. Lighter, cheaper, less road noise. I'd had both the BFGs and Goodyear. These are better so far

Grip is great

Guy I work with has over 100K on a set his. All highway miles. He keeps his air pressure high and rotates religiously.

i can look at those and tell they do not do as well on "all terrain" as either ko2 or duratrecs

I own both.

The ko2s are sitting in the shed with 12k miles and a fricked up wear pattern. 1000 bucks on a set of useless 35s

The duratracs aren't even at half tread at 65k miles. 285/75r16

Same vehicle. No alignment done when swapped.

Duratrac tires are far far superior to the BFG's. They are legit all purpose all conditions rubber.

Curious as to what mpg loss occurs going to the KO2s from a more road friendly Michelin all terrain (Tundra). TIA.

re: BFG AT KO2s versus Wrangler Duratecs
I’ve had a couple of sets of KO2s and had been a fan until my last set. I developed pretty severe cracking that started around the lugs on my sidewall and extended into my sidewall. These cracks eventually started to leak and I had to replace the tires. Other than the sidewall cracks the tires appeared to have plenty of tread left. BFG wasn’t very overly helpful when I contacted them.

I hate making split decisions on a bigger purchase like tires (I research things to death), but let my tire guy talk me in to Yokohama geolander x-at when I went to replace the BFGs. Quiet, smooth ride that is fairly aggressive for an all terrain. I’ve been pleased so far.

Depends more on change in sizing and weight but the difference in grip will matter a little. On my 05 Tundra I went from stocks to 33” KOs and lost 3-4 mpg. On my ‘14 tundra I went from stocks to 33” cooper st maxx which would be similar to the KOs and I lost about 3-4 also.
Basically, stocks are usually a lot lighter with less rolling resistance so you are need to be prepared to lose a few mpg.
