    Nitto will last longer. BFG's will hook better. IMO.

    Its all about payoffs...the MT's grip the best and last least, the Nitto's last the best but grip least...and the BFG's fall right in the middle.....now I know of 1.6 60' times with the Nittos so they are not bad, I use them as my street tire on my 04 GTO because they wear better then the other 2 and are rated at higher capacity for 18" wheels....GTO weighs a little over 4,000 lbs.

    I like my MT DR's much better than my BFG's. There's no point comparing them to Nittos since the Nittos are barely sticky enough to be called a DR.
