Hi.
Can anyone in the U.S. give me some info on weather or not BFG make the all terrain tyre in the standard 275x60/20 sizes?

What's the next comparable tyre, performance wise for my 20 inch standard chrome clad rims?

I mostly run on the highway with occasional offroad use, but the weathers turning here in the UK and I think the winter will be a bad one this year.

Cheers,
Al.

BFG does make the AT in 285/55/20 and 285/65/20.

A 285/65-20 is about 34 1/2"s tall or 878 mm , so with the front leveled it should fit fine. I think they are a great looking tire and I say go for it! :rck: Besides the 285/55-20 is actually almost a 1/2 inch shorter (16 mm ) than your stock tires. :tdwn:

Cheers Kenny.
I'll try around some of the tyre shops here in the UK, to see if anyone stocks them at a half decent price.

The 285/65/20 BFG's are an E rated tire, I am very interested in these
but I am worried about them riding rough. What do you think?

They're an a/t tire, the sidewall will be stiffer then a street tire. It all depends on what you define as rough. I have not had a vehicle ride rough due simply to properly inflated tires. But then I come from a lifted jeep with a short arm suspension that had a ride quality my friend's described as being hit in the kidneys. Your butt may be more sensitive then mine.

I have had several pairs of BFG a/t's and have liked all of them real well. I
have a set on a Suburban that I have now. All of them have been D rated
though, not E. D rated are rated for 65 psi and I have ran them at 40 psi
with no problems and good ride quality. E rated are rated for 80 psi and I am
not sure what psi I can run them at for good ride quality but not wear them
prematurely do to underinflation.

The pressure you should run is determined by tire size and load. Consult the BFG load and inflation table to determine the correct tire pressure for your application. It's not 80 psi, and I would bet it's also not 40 psi.
