New 35" Nittos on my F250

I've been without a Ranger for about 2.5 years now, but the Ranger always has a place in my heart. The Super Duty has about 60,000 miles on her now without a single problem. I replaced my 285/75/18E Wrangler MT/R Kevlars because after 49,000 miles they were getting pretty thin. I ran em through some mud one last time for good measure.

I had been a while since I locked in the hubs and found 4wd in the T-Case. But it was all good. Here's a few pics of my last outing with the 'Kevlars.













Here's a few pics of the new 35x12.50R18E Nitto Trail Grapplers. They fit real good with the Icon 2.5" leveling system.










Hope you are all doing well. Enjoy the holidays!

that truck looks amazing. I would not lift it any higher. bigger tires might look even better but the stance now is awesome.

how did you like the kevlars? im considering them for mine in the future. the guys at town fair tire said they dont have a very good compound but i dont know. my 3 options are the kevlars, pro comp extreme mt's, or toyos. but id rather not spend 350 a piece on the toyos.

Yeah, I do like the stance my truck has now. It's right at 7' tall, so it is too tall for big city downtown and parking garages. For me though, it's good. The 35s fit good. Pleant of clearance. They wanted to put 37s on it but that goes down a big road of mods and money I don't want to travel yet: gears, True Trac, etc. $$$

Honestly, the Kevlars were the best tire I've ever owned... at least on a 7500lb vehicle. Mine were E rated 10 ply with 4000lbs of load capacity each at 80psi. It made the truck handle really good with a trailer and 1500lbs in the bed, all while riding one 35" of rubber. I usually ran them at 60psi and called it good though. The best part I liked about the Goodyears was their wet road traction. I'd venture it was the best handling mud grip on a wet road that I have owned. We will see how these Nittos stack up, and they have some big shoes to fill. At this point I'd say the Trail Graplers will outdo the Kevlars in mud by a lot but not do quite as good on the road and in inclement weather.

Unless something changes with the sizing, I couldn't get a 35x12.50R18E in the MT/R Kevlar. Remember, my truck has the government nanny TPMS junk that can't be adjusted (unless you're in real tight with a dealer). It'll iluminate that stupid yellow light and put a message on the dash every time I start the truck if the tires don't have at least 60psi in them. So anything D rated is out like the BFG KM2, because that tire is 55psi max pressure. Long story short, I kinda regret the 18" rims because it limits your plus size tire selection a lot.



Thanks everyone for the kind words

Awesome truck man. Love the way it looks. This body style is so much nicer then the newest body style. If I were to get a super duty, i'd look for 09

Me too. For some reason, I never really liked the '08-10 Super Duty front end. The 2011 is cool to me. My body style looks a little to militaristic or something. But finally, it's starting to grow on me, LoL. a couple of model years after the fact. Haha!

Thanks. It's good to see a few familiar faces and glad you still got the F150 rolling on 35s.

I said that for almost 10 years. I always wanted a crew cab 4wd F250. I was a broke high school kid when I caught the bug. Then I was a broke college kid still infected. Now that I got the truck of my dreams, I got a career, wife, kid, home, and no time to enjoy my truck. Figures. Hahahaha!


Take it easy, gentlemen

looks good, i went to a 17inch rim on my 350 just for the more selection of tires, i can def tell the difference in size sometime wish i had 18's still but man are tires cheaper, im suprised you got that much out of the mt/r's i wasnt thinkning they would hold up that well but thats nice to know, ive also been leaning towards the trail grapplers but still up in the air, duratracs still look like a good option, btw you truck really makes me have to lift the back of mine back up so it doesnt look so low.....
