Ok well I have found out the hard way that BFG 's FUKIN SUCK in the snow!!! I have 2 33 12.50 15 tsl .. that were wore down to the ware bars and have been regrooved I want to put them on the rear and keep the better of my bfg's on the front? I looked up the true sizes and bfg's are true 33 its either 33.7 or 33.4 new von the tsl's if they are worn down could I run them together without killing my T- case?

Different brands, different diameters... and you are running fulltime so you DEFINITELY don't want to do that, you'll cook your t-case in no time. You could get a part time case...

If they are worn down to pretty close to the same diameter I would use them for sure on snow or dirt. Not clean pavemnt unless they were the same. Betcha most sets of tires vary a bit between front and rear once they are worn anyway. The closer the diameter the better of course but off road they should be fine. :dontknow:

Yeah, offroad should be fine, enough slip that it doesn't matter... I guess with a fulltime so long as both axles are turning PRETTY close together it's ok, since it's kind of like an open diff in the tcase.. I just hear about guys with fulltime at aircare on single dynos back in the day blowing up their cases..

The viscous coupling (the differential) in the your Tcase DOES NOT like different tire sizes at all we have put in a few tcases in those grands because of ICfuckingBC not willing to replace 4 tires in after an accident and then a couple of months later the viscous blows up in the Tcase and then ICBC is replacing a Tcase and more tires.

find some chains for your truck. plenty of online places seem to be selling them for resonable prices so perhaps you can see if a local dist will match price . Nothing is gonna beat chains in the snow and you simply keep them in a bag in the back for when you need them. Also some of the other folks on here have had good luck with sipeing perhaps look into that?

i find that the truxus m/t work good in snow and ice. They have quite a bit of siping on them to help with traction. But nothing beats chains on as well.
