Lara,

Congrats on the new ride! The BF Goodrich All Terrains are about the best tire available for on and off-road driving. I can't use them on my Manx for that same reason they work so well on other vehicles - the triple sidewall. This extra protection keeps the rocks and (most) sticks from puncturing or tearing the tires, but the Manx only weighs 1,200 pounds so the extra stiffness contributes to a rough ride.

I instead went with Pirelli Scorpian AT tires for the back, and Scorpian AS tires for the front. They are excellent. I would suggest checking the reviews for the tires you are considering at www.tirerack.com. You will probably find better prices locally, but there is a wealth of information on the site.
