If you want a tire that will have a long life and still have a nice aggressive look, go with the BFG All Terrain's -a decent off-road tire. Or if you: like noisy tires, want something that does great offroad, and don't care if your tires only get about 55-60,000 miles on them at regualr rotate and balacne, like me... Go with the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's.

I have also heard a lot of great things about the Dueler Revo's that some people have on there trucks. I think Bridgestone makes them.

P.S. If you want something a little taller than the 245's, but not too extreme, step up to the 265's. The BFG AT's and the Goodyear Wrangler MT/r's look great in that size. All of these tires have an application for a 16 in rim, hope this helps!

Bridgestone Dueler AT REVOS

The are the all around top performing truck tire.

Wet traction, dry traction, snow, ice, they're quiet, they wear well, and the look great.

$110-$140 a piece.... :(

Who has them for that price.. everywhere I looked was 150+$ each

I went with Toyo Open Country All-Terrains.
I am very happy and they were 445$ for 4 everything included (even tax and an alignment) No road hazard though.

I checked 15 different firestone places the cheapest would have been over 650$ for the revos. I think they revos might be SLIGHTLY better but I am very happy. Already have 20000miles on these tires and it looks like I'm good for at least 30000 more.

if you need to get through ****, Goodyear MT/Rs are DEFINATELY the tire to do it in. 265/75r16s would be a good size for you to move up to. a little smaller than a 32.

If you want long life and some traction, BFGoodrich A/T KOs

BFG Mud Terrains are better in mud than Goodyear MT/Rs.

But if you are looking at an All Terrain tire, I'd recommend Sport King A/Ts over BFGoodrich All Terrains for a better price and better performance.

Size: 265/75 r 16

i agree...

my 2wd with 32" bgf muds could go through more than my buddy jeff's with 32" mt/r's

and he had a locker on his 2wd...

he always got stuck before i did...

MT/Rs by far in the mud department. Dueler Revo's if you want an A/T.

i had Dueler REVOS on my truck, i wont buy anything else now, no noise on the road, but digs through off road stuff, self cleaning treads. i never got stuck with them. great in the sand too. without a lift, you can get the 265/75R16s, thats what i had, they are roughly 32's

I'd get a set of cheap Mud Kings (made by a sister company of BFGoodrich) before I got MT/Rs to go mudding.

I have a set of the proComp A/T's and they are really good tires. They have a 50000 mile treadlife on them and are relativly inexpensive but at the same time not "cheap". About 130.00 a tire but if you check four wheel parts website they usually have good deals on them.

Yall must have a different type of mud in SC because I've had both and find it near impossible to cake the MT/Rs and they dig like crazy.

Granted, I haven't had the new KM but its the same tread pattern as the old so it shouldn't be any different.

Its red clay. Starts out as "red dirt", but just add water, and you'll turn a set of Super Swampers into street slicks.

um, my MT/Rs have shown up just about any tire ive gone with on just about all conditions, rock, mud, dont know bout sand but...yeah

in colorado, goodyear MT/Rs are the **** and I would never trade them for another tire, although I do want to take a stab at the BFG krawlers and see how they are. other than that, i wont go any other type of tire.

granted, BFG muds are a good tire and will give longer life, but my concern is purely offroad.


I also prefer rock to mudding. mud is BAD BAD BAD for you truck.

in any event, I LOVE my goodyear wrangler MT/Rs and you couldnt pay me to run another tire. unless to test out the krawlers.

WORD

I got 31X10;50 Maxxis Buckshot Mudders on mine and iv gone through a decent amount of mud and had absolutely no problems. Their kinda noisy on the road but not too bad. Mostly loud when you go around curves. They were pretty chaep for how good quality they are too
