There are no lugs on the sidewall, whatsoever on the Toyo. I see them as no difference between them and a street tire.

Yes, there are. Not big ones, but definitely enough edge to help grab. You'd have to see them in person. That small stock pic may be an old one, or it may just be tough to tell in the pic itself, but I'll post one in a minute.

They don't look as aggressive as the BFGs, but you're crazy if you think they look like a street tire. Like I said, they are much more aggressive than a lot of the "all terrains" I see up here. My buddy has a brand new F150 FX4, and the all terrains that came on it suck. He got stuck bad in a little snow in my driveway a few months back, and then just this past weekend, he was spinning like crazy in my driveway, dry as a bone. I don't know what tire they were, just that they were supposed to be all terrains.

Ah, it worked!

Like I said, I can fit my fingers all the way down between the treads. And you know I have giant hot dog fingers.

Notice the ridges coming down the shoulder and onto the sidewall. Not huge lugs or anything like a mud tire, but there is a definite edge on each of them, enough to grab and serve the purpose.

These definitely don't look nuthin' like a street tire, man!

At the end of the day, I know from experience how good they are in tough terrain. I have abused them many times over on very rough trails with mud, snow, and sharp, loose rocks, and haven't ever had an issue. They also do great on the street - quiet and smooth. It's yet to be seen how many miles they will go, but they are wearing well so far, even with the abuse I put them through. It's really a fantastic tire. The only other new set of all terrains we have had on this vehicle were the Nitto Terra Grapplers, and this is a far superior tire, in my opinion.

Ya, they certainly don't look like a mud tire, either.

I've just been seeing a lot of all terrains lately that DO look like street tires. Nothing like these Toyos. Seems like a lot of new 4x4 vehicles come with crap from the factory.

They definitely do. Goodyear all terrains are a popular OEM tire and they are complete shit.
