Tire Time

Well its that time. Time to get new tires. I might put a level on the truck when I do tires, still not sure yet. I don't want huge tires but something a little bigger then stock wouldn't be too bad. So what do you guys suggest?

I don't feel like dropping like $1,500 either so no need to post those. lol

Duratrecs, BFGs.

They will be my next tire when I have another truck or SUV. AT's wouldn't look right on my current vehicle.

I had 285/70/17s on my F150 when I had it. I had the BFG ATs and they were like $250 something a tire lol. They looked great IMO though. Just the right size with the leveling kit.

I'm pretty sure the 285s would still fit the 4x2 just fine with a leveling kit. They would've fit my truck fine without one, and lots of guys actually run 35s on the 4x4s with just a leveling kit.

Here's mine leveled with the 285s

Compared to the new trucks that is true. The new engine lineup is a definite win.
