BFG A/T KO Tires on OB

Has anyone run BFG A/T KO tires on their Outback? Today, I saw a 2012 Forester running these and it looked great. This has been my favorite truck tire for years so I am curious if anyone has them on their OB and feedback?

The Search engine won't give you any results, but you can Google " BFG A/T" and you can see some of the past discussions.

I wouldn't recommend them.

I've run both the BFG A/T KO's and the General Grabber AT2's on a Jeep. The BFG's had a slightly harder tread compound than the General's. The Generals were just a hair softer/more pliable. I found that I didn't like the BFG's in the snow as much as I liked the General's. As for on-road and highway manners the BFG's inched out the Generals here. And I found the BFG's to last longer with tread wear. However in off-road driving I found I preferred the Generals.

Overall I prefer the Generals due to cost, off-road manners and winter capabilities. However, if I lived where it never snowed I would probably lean towards the BFG's.

Just my $.02

I would want a truck-like vehicle for that type tire. I hope that's fair to say considering I just sold a truck-based rig with A/T tires when I realized my Outback with all weather tires does a plenty fine job for my being off road often (trail builder, ski area director). If nothing else I'd go two sets of wheels for the car if you insist because it's nice to have the road handling and safety.

Met a guy at the Socal Mountain Rendezvous a couple months ago that was running the stock sized KOs on his 2010. He was extremely pleased with them, said the road noise was low and traction was amazing.
